In fact, the opposite is true. I LOVE movies about sports. Remember the Titans, Moneyball, Dodgeball, Field of Dreams, etc. You name it, I probably love it. So this week, I'm going to talk about my favorite sports movie: The Sandlot.
While I've never actually been a twelve year old boy, I have a pretty strong suspicion that this movie speaks directly to the idealized standard twelve year old boy experience. What do they care about? Baseball. Friends. Family. Girls (but only sometimes). And fun. Watching this movie is like watching the version of reality we all wish existed, and sometimes like to pretend did when we think nostalgically about the past. It's what every child's life should be like. Their biggest concern should be about getting to play baseball and hang out with their friends.
