• Two Foul Ball Battered Thumbs Up

    From the Hollywood Reporter:

    It may not be “Dinner and a Movie,” but legendary New York Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi Berra will co-host a series of sports-related movies on the YES Network.

    Berra and YES studio host Bob Lorenz will introduce a movie night called “Yogi and a Movie” that the regional sports channel will screen Thursday nights through March as well as discuss the movie in brief vignettes between reels and commercials. Up first: “The Bad News Bears,” the 1976 movie about a ragtag youth team starring Walter Matthau and Tatum O’Neal.

    Most but not all of the movies are baseball-related, from “The Natural” and “A League of Their Own” to “Major League: Back to the Minors” and “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan.” Others include “Jim Thorpe: All American” and “The Joe Louis Story.”

    What’s next – rebroadcasts of “Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert” hosted by Bernie Williams?

      I’d be curious and check it out. I’ve seen “Dinner and a Movie” on TBS and I enjoyed it a bit. Is that still even on?

      “Beans and Cornbread”
