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…
