The Hall of Fame canceled a screening of what many people consider the most satisfying baseball movie to date, "Bull Durham," on the count of the leftist politics two of the films stars, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. I think Robbins is a talented actor on the screen, and an arrogant putz in real life, however, whether I agree with his opinons or not, I certainly agree with his right to express them. I'm not sure what the Hall was trying to accomplish here, but boy, have they generated reams of bad press over the incident, which is a wet dream for liberal editorialists.
For full and comprehensive coverage, look no further than Jay Jaffe's Futility Infielder. I had the pleasure of spending some time with Jaffe last weekend, and I'm pleased to report he is as good a guy as he is a writer (plus, he bears an uncommon resemblance to Robin Ventura, which can't be bad now can it?).
For some reason I wasn't able to link the specific articles, but they are the last two he's posted. So get going, Meat, and get yourself schooled.
