Boxer seems to be coming out of her funk and is actually participating in the magic she created. But it's the Milk River Madman that continues to take up the mantle that is Movie Clip Wednesday, the Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme and tries to keep the clip or clips to around 3 minutes long. This week's theme is BEST SPORTS MOVIE. I was just watching A League of Their Own, which is a great baseball movie and one of the few movies that makes me cry at the end (yeah, I said it). Caddyshack (which I did last week), North Dallas Forty, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Longest Yard, Eight Men Out, The Hustler, Major League and Bull Durham all come to mind. Interestingly, most of your great sports movies seem to be about baseball. But the sports movie I like the best is 1977's Slapshot. And it's because of three words - the Hanson Brothers. The frightening part is that all three of these guys were actual minor league hockey players and went back to hockey afterwards, even though they were offered (and turned down) a spin-off movie. Scary realism - these guys are covered in blood in almost every scene. Does it get any better than that? ...I think not.
This is the best line in the whole movie:
I'm looking forward to seeing the "jock" in everybody over at the Madman 's.
