Candlesticks Make A Nice Gift

We somehow missed the 20th anniversary of Bull Durham’s release here at Bus Leagues (bad minor league baseball bloggers – BAD!) but never fear, for I have spent the past thirty minutes trolling around YouTube in search of a video clip that will make up for the fact that we are almost three weeks late to the party (hey, Costner is in Durham with his band later today; that makes this a relevant topic, no?)

And finally, I found one. 

Be careful with the volume, because the language gets a little salty at times, but it’s well worth it if you’re one of those people who has always wondered what they’re talking about during those little mid-inning get togethers on the mound.

Reminder: Crash Davis Returns to Durham on July 4th

I don’t know what Kevin Costner is doing with a guitar in that photo, but I hope he’s singing this:

“Young girls they do get wooly, beCAUSE of all the stress!”

God, I hate people who get the words wrong.

Actually, Mr. Costner will be back in Durham to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film that gave this blog a name:

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the hit movie Bull Durham, the Durham Bulls are pleased to announce Hollywood star Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West are coming to Durham to celebrate Independence Day with a concert at the DBAP on July 4th. Costner starred in the role of Crash Davis, an aging catcher sent down to A-ball to work with a young pitching prospect on the Durham Bulls. The City of Durham’s annual fireworks extravaganza will follow the concert.

Am I the only one who finds celebrity musical groups to be a bit sad? And imagine having to tell your kids that the fireworks show won’t start until the guy with the thinning hair is done with his soft rock playlist. Then again, if they can get him to deliver his famous “high fiber, good scotch” (and a few other things) soliloquy, maybe it will be truly newsworthy.
