30 for 30 Shorts: Unhittable: Sidd Finch and the Tibetan Fastball Review:


30 for 30 Shorts: Unhittable: Sidd Finch and the Tibetan Fastball «


The free and short documentary is good one to look at. It is all about the April 1st sports Illustrated hoax they pulled off. This was about Sidd Finch, a Harvard dropout who spoke 10 languages, played the French horn, wore one hiking boot and threw 168 mph.

They really got the public and other MLB teams to believe this guy was for real.

Cheryl...don't miss it!
Thanks, Kay. I'm going to try to see Cinderella tomorrow afternoon. Don't know if that will work, because my granddaughters are still in town and I'm not sure of their plans yet. They're 10 and 13 and have other family here, too. If I don't go tomorrow, it may have to wait until spring break is over -I'd much rather go to the movies when school is in session.

I finally saw "Wild" yesterday. It was a good movie, and Reese Witherspoon was awesome in it. I so looked forward to seeing it on the big screen, but ended up watching it on Dish on Demand. Apparently the powers that be decided not to show it in our theater for some reason, which boggles my mind because the Pacific Crest Trail runs right through this area. Sheesh Anyway, I enjoyed it a lot.

Golly, Cinderella would be great to see with your granddaughters Cheryl, and they are the perfect age. It's more sophisticated than we remember the Cinderella of our childhood. Just lovely.

Glad you enjoyed Wild... Although it lacked the details of the book, Reese did a great job with a good story.

I would take them, but they already went to see it yesterday with their other local grammy - she beat me to it! And they did love it.

DRATT!! The battle of the gram's and the kids are the winners. I enjoyed it so much with just "me, myself and I" Cheryl. It would be lost with my little Cheyenne.

Truth! With this huge blended family we have, so thankful that we all get along.

I love going to the movies solo, too. Often it's been just me in the whole theater, maybe a couple of other people. It feels like a private viewing and I can enjoy my own goodies I sneak in.

Gee, if they had kept quiet, they could have seen it twice. Then on the way out, they could have told you.

It's excellent, J K Simmons deserved every award he got for this movie. He was so good he made me hate his character.

Gone Girl, because it was filmed locally, and because a friend of my BIL was an extra. He appears in the opening credits for about 1 nanosecond.
