Pedro Martinez' Hair In 2004
Five weeks ago, Jerry Crasnick wrote in his ESPN.com column:
I just noticed this in the recent print edition of Baseball America, where they recycle the ESPN features of Crasnick, Gammons, etc.
I laughed out loud, yes, a true "LOL," when I read this line this morning.
FWIW, "Coming to America" is in the same category as "Trading Places" in terms of movies that I still laugh at, when I see them, no matter how many times I see them.
John Landis is incredible.
Animal House, Trading Places, Coming To America........
Wow, you know, if you order them like this:
Coming To America, Animal House, Trading Places
You just might have the "Pedro Martinez Red Sox Story" with the pulse points of 1998, 2004, and 2005........

Man, this is baseball. You gotta stop thinking. Just have fun.

I've been going to games since August 8, 1973....and on August 22, 2004, finally, a foul ball came my way. I had to reach for it, and it deflected off the tip of my right index finger. Shoot, if I was only 4 inches taller!
Have you read The Baseball Same Game?

Unfortunately for Landis he also has "Blues Brothers 2000" on his resume.
And "The Stupids"
Granted, his early work helps cover that for him.

"The biggest thrill a ballplayer can have is when your son takes after you. That happened when my Bobby was in his championship Little League game. He really showed me something. Struck out three times. Made an error that lost the game. Parents were throwing things at our car and swearing at us as we drove off. Gosh, I was proud." -- Bob Uecker
