See any good movies last night?
I love movies. I once worked at a movie theater, and the experience was amazing. I am now taking evening classes for a degree in Media Art, and one of the classes is Intro to Film Study. It is exactly what it sounds like. I watch one film a week and then discuss it in class.
With that in mind, for over a month now I've compiled a list of movie quotes, and applied them to members of the Astros. Included are those on the field, as well as those in the dugout and the front office. As you'll notice not everyone in the dugout or in the office has made it on the list. I've racked my brain and I just don't have the mental library to get a good quote with absolutely everyone, but maybe you do.
Brad Mills - "Well he's gonna walk Beck to pitch to Parkman obviously Taylor's thinking... I don't know WHAT the hell he's thinking. " Major League II
