The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Really enjoyed seeing "Fever Pitch" tonight starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon. Fallon plays a character completely obsessed with baseball in general, and the Red Sox in particular. Barrymore is the baseball-oblivious love interest.

I liked the way Fallon distributed his season tickets. He made his friends dance if they wanted a highly-coveted Yankees game ticket.

Fallon is so Red Sox crazy he turns down a trip to Paris with his girlfriend because his team "really needs him" that weekend.

(Spoiler ahead) And of course there's a Hollywood ending where Fallon gets the girl AND baseball too.

In an unrelated item, I was really angry to come home tonight to find out the Dodgers vs. Padres game isn't televised tonight. I'm stuck listening to Rick Monday on the radio. At least the Dodgers have taken the lead in the 8th inning and may be on their way to their eighth consecutive win and maintaining the best record in Major League Baseball. (Not that I'm obsessed.)
