Movie Marathon

January is always the darkest month for a baseball fan. It is far enough away from last season to make you begin to forget what happened and it is close enough to Spring Training to make you think it will never come.

I think I have hit rock bottom. This afternoon I watched the Disney movie Angels in the Outfield and actually began to root for Anaheim. The sad part of this is that I have seen that movie about a hundred times. At least it was baseball. Oh how I long for the game of the week. If only I would have gotten the express written consent of Major League Baseball and the Arizona Diamondbacks so that I could rebroadcast the entirety or a part of the telecast of a single Diamondbacks baseball game.
