|Even he’s not mad at that one…|
|And it’s what you are if you haven’t seen this movie…|
So a brief synopsis since most of you have already seen it. Smalls is the new kid in town with no friends and an overly judgmental step-father played by Dennis Leary. (Yeah, the guy from Rescue Me) So in order to make the kid less of a loser, his step-father attempts to teach him how to play baseball. It doesn’t go well. But don’t worry, The Jet meets Smalls and takes him under his wing to introduce him to the sandlot and the gang.
|I’m so sorry this is pixelated…|
So after some summer hijinks…
|The man’s a legend…|
And some of the greatest insults ever laid down in the sport of baseball…
|With “You ain’t fit to lick the dirt off my cleats” in a close second|
The gang accepts Smalls as one of their own. However, in a feeble attempt to maintain significance in the group, Smalls loses his step-Leary’s prize possession, an autographed ball by the Great Bambino himself.
|I’m sorry, it was just too easy|
If you like the Flashback Friday theme I think I might stick with it for now, or maybe do Throwback Thursday…I don’t know which is still significant…
