Is it acceptable to almost cry at a baseball movie montage set to "The Mighty Rio Grande" by This Will Destroy You on a Wednesday afternoon? Not that I did that, I'm just curious what y'all think.
Damn it, I miss baseball. I miss the NCAA Tournament and the Stanley Cup Playoffs and The Masters and all that, too, but there's something unique about the feeling of getting home and turning on the Atlanta Braves every night. I can't describe it; there's just something about baseball, man. It doesn't feel right to have the calendar turning to May without ballparks full of fans and standings to check every morning.
But that's where we're at. Hopefully we'll figure this thing out soon and get back to a relative normal where we can have a Major League Baseball season and everything else we love.
I will now rank my Top 10 movies featured in this montage, a list with which I am sure everyone will agree and will be lauded for its accuracy.
2. Major League
3. The Rookie
4. For Love of the Game
6. Rookie of the Year
7. Eight Men Out
8. The Sandlot
9. Field of Dreams
10. The Natural
