Trouble With The Curve

8/4/2014 – Today I did some late afternoon tub relaxing. When I was through, I came out to the living room to find my husband napping after a long day of work. I decided to sit and relax too. Dan had HBO on, he was watching the Hobbit, but it was almost over by the time I got out of the tub. He had the tv and cable remotes nestled tightly between him and the chair, so there really wasn’t any changing the channel. Soon a new movie had started, and I really wasn’t paying much attention to what it was. Then I saw Clint Eastwood. Yes, I have a slight crush on Eastwood. Yes, he is old and I am young, but his work is awesome. So I started to pay a bit more attention to the movie. I then realized it was about baseball. I love baseball, but it wasn’t always that way.
Baseball… growing up I was never really a fan. I would play in gym class, and catch a local single a minor league game or two (not that I knew that is what it was then…hehee). When it came to the different major league teams and leagues I was clueless. Then I met Dan. He is baseball obsessed. I quickly learned the ins and outs of the game, and slowly grew a love of baseball.
So the movie had peaked my interest a bit more then entered Amy Adams. Love her! Great actress. That drew me in a bit more, then entered teen crush JT!
JT and baseball…hot!! Oh sorry not a teen anymore…lol. So Justin Timberlake was now on my screen. My laptop and phone were put away at that point. The movie actually had a very interesting story line going on as well. I remember advertisements for it a year or so ago, but didn’t think I would want to watch, but I was pleasantly surprised, and apparently I surprised my hubs too.
Dan woke up from his nap and in normal fashion he grabs the remote and pulls up the guide. I am like, “hello, I was watching that”, but he didn’t hear me. So he flips it over. I say again, “hey, I was watching that, can we turn it back?” That is when he inquisitively states, “what do you mean you were watching that? You were watching Trouble With The Curve, a baseball movie?”
Heck yeah I was watching a baseball movie, I am surprised he would even question me about that. Plus, the story line is a bit deeper than just a baseball game or two.
I politely responded that, “yes, I actually do like baseball and it, so far, had been a very good movie.” So, I was nice and asked if he wanted to start it from the beginning he said, “no”, and we continued to watch.

I have to say it was a really cute movie. It had some grit, humor, emotion, and sass. Oh and did I mention baseball?? It had guy elements and chic flick mixed in. The perfect date night movie if you and your other are into baseball.

Until next time…
