I came out to lay on the couch, flipping through channels and found Kevin Costner's For Love of the Game.
I've actually never seen this movie . I was supposed to. I remember when it came out my cousin and I told my mom we were going to see this movie. We ended up meeting some guys and hanging out for a couple of hours instead. Please, don't tell her. She still doesn't know.
It wasn't a bad movie, but I found myself looking at stats and places more than actually thinking about the premise of the movie. Like I really want to see a movie where the Yankees get no hit (Stupid Houston Astros).
Here were a few observations:
- It was great seeing Yankee Stadium and knowing anytime I want to see the old place, I can just throw this movie on. I haven't been inside the new Yankee Stadium, but the old one feels like it's already gone.
- Sam Tuttle, the Yankees big slugger (a jerkoff with the number 13, go figure), hit .309 with 39 HR and there are just two games left in the season. And he still hadn't broken the 100-RBI plateau. Either his team isn't that great or he constantly hits without runners are on base.
- I've seen players' wives. They don't look anything these wives did.
- I kept seeing a commercial for the Heat Surge fireplace, which is made by the Amish. I don't know much about the Amish, but I didn't think they used electricity. If that's the case, how can they make these?
- It would be amazing if Vin Scully actually broadcasts games on national television. There is nothing more I enjoy than listening to Scully call Dodgers games. As Greg Dobbs once said, "He's the most prepared broadcaster ever." But he's more than that. He has a way with words and always sums up your thoughts the moment you're thinking them.
- Little boys don't buy cards with pictures on it for the gum. Also, it's not always little boys.
- Whoever wrote this script couldn't have portrayed baseball players any better.
- I'm excited for the new Fast & the Furious.
- Does the Sham WOW! guy have one eye?
- Vin Scully is the man.
