  1. mike from gloucester says

    just watched -11/18/09-a movie playing on comcast ondemand titled “Cooperstown. It stars Alan Arkin as an old baseball scout who is miffed that he is not in the Hall of Fame. The movie is one of the best baseball movies I have ever seen. It took me totally by surprise.
    Also one of the greatest movie lines i ever heard about sportswriters but you’ll have to watch the film itself to hear it.
