Bull Durham. The cure for what ails you.
Losing to the Angels 7-4 in the bottom of the 8th, I went looking for a happy place.
Found it with this clip from the movie Bull Durham.
Somehow, I imagine this is what most mound visits are like, give or take a sacrificed chicken every now and then. I can actually imagine Youk walking to the mound with Beckett pitching and when they all get there Beckett re-creating George Carlins "7 Words you can't say on television" in graphic detail.
After losing 2 out of 3 to the Yankees, reading about the latest version of "As Manny Turns" and reading 1,589 articles about why the Red Sox should trade Manny, I needed a diversion.
God Bless Ron Shelton and Kevin Costner for making this movie.
Nothing like Crash, Nuke, and that dude who played Arliss to calm my nerves.
