Trooper's post reminded me of this scene

What that scene does not include is a shot of Annie's shrine to baseball - right smack dab in the middle of the shrine is a framed picture of Thurman Munson. 

This is a another favorite scene here among the Lemsters - what's that make you?

Classic scene with many quotable lines. That one was filmed in the basement of a friend's place of work. It's not clear that the old Durham Bulls park even had showers.

I could keep posting scenes from that movie - just this morning I was singing "Young girls they do get wooly" and thinking about the time I went to Mitch's Tavern in Raleigh - that's where the fight between Crash and Nuke was filmed. Funny stuff.

I like that movie and I think it holds up well. It is also a time capsule of a town and a sport that no longer exist. Buh bye.

This flick inspired me to work hard on keeping "lollygagging" part of our current vernacular. I use it every chance I get. I tell my 3 year old granddaughter she's lollygagging when she is and she now knows this great word.

It is a great word. We must never allow lollygagging!

A memorable line from an otherwise forgettable baseball movie"

By the way, you know what?
Have you noticed, whenever we're around baseball,
all we talk about is pussy.
Now, we're actually around a few
potentially interesting young women,
all you talk about is baseball!
It's a little fucked up!
