Really, there are few movies -- especially among the subgenre of baseball flicks -- The Ford enjoys as much as Major League.

Another viewing, slightly drunken, and still The Ford picks up something new.

Two things tonight:

1.) The only proper response to the "Too high/Too hard" debate is, "Who gives a shit? It's gone."

2.) The Ford is convinced Lou Brown's decision to shorten the Indians' rotation to three men (Kellner, Harris and Vaughn, with Vaughn occasionally coming out of the 'pen as well), while winning the AL East for the Tribe, probably cost them years of contention. Lou Brown: Brilliant motivator, but horrible for young pitchers. Kinda like Dusty Baker, when you think about it.

Major League is indeed a major comedy classic ... If you don't mind a more serious recommendation in baseball flicks, I really liked the doco, "The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg," which was made by his daughter

Bartender, Jo-Bu needs a refill!

And, Reel Fanatic, yeah, I've heard good things about the Greenberg flick. I really need to check it out, if only to complete my Detroit sports knowledge.
