WCW: Bitty Schram & the Rockford Peaches

MV5BMjA2MDI1NzEwNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzM2NTgwMw@@._V1_SX640_SY720_ I did something weird last night… I watched a movie.  If you know me, or have been like, a super dedicated reader for some reason, you’ll know I never see movies.  It’s not for lack of desire, I just prefer an episodic format and can’t seem to get around to watching a longer, one-off.  It’s weird, I know.

Last night, I watched A League of Their Own on Netflix.  I absolutely loved it, obviously.  I actually cried through a good chunk of the end… which is another reason I don’t watch movies often.  I think the beginning of summer is the perfect time to watch this, being baseball season and all.  Having never seen this film before, I was clearly missing out on some important cultural references.  I knew about “there’s no crying in baseball!” but I didn’t know it was said to Bitty Schram, or that she was even in this film!

I loved Bitty Schram in Monk, always preferring Sharona to Natalie, and I must say, she was even more adorable in A League of Their Own.  Bitty Schram is my woman crush this Wednesday, but really it’s all of the Rockford Peaches!  If you live under a rock (like me, apparently!) and haven’t seen this movie, go ahead and Netflix it.  I think it’s important.  You’ll also see Gina Davis, Tom Hanks, Rosie O’Donnell, and Madonna.

What other movies from 22 years ago am I missing out on, guys?  Netflix suggestions always appreciated.  I’m honestly not going to watch it otherwise…
