My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


In Preparation for Opening Day 

A viewing recommendation.

Yeah, sure, Opening Day is seven days away--for some reason I just can't credit the Sunday night game--so what better time to start to psyche up for the season than by watching the best baseball movies ever made?

Start with the HBO production of 61*. If you haven't seen it, I'm not surprised--it never got quite the same hoopla as some of HBO's other big shows, but it is just as well made as John Adams or The Sopranos. And as one of the least-told stories of all of baseball's mythology, the home run race between Roger Maris and Micky Mantle makes for compelling watching.
