    I'm with you there, Inky. Sounds like a truly horrible idea.

    First Costner ruins a baseball book that I love (For Love of the Game) and now he wants to ruin one of my favorite movies with a ridiculous sequel. I'm really starting to hate that guy.

    Leave it the fuck alone!

    Isn't it a little late for a sequel?

    Wait ... Annie and NUKE get married??? Come on, I know they're married in real life, but the original left little doubt Annie and Crash were made for each other, not Nuke and Annie.

    It's OK. I've procured the script.

    In it, Crash leads the MLB team (yet to be determined, but surely a down-trodden club that hasn't won a title in say 100 years) to a World Series berth. Just before Game 7, Annie and Crash can no longer control their urges and do it on the manager's clubhouse desk. This clears Crash's mind and he's able to win the title by having an aging, journeyman catcher lay down a suicide squeeze bunt with two outs for the win.

    Ugh, this is a bad idea.

    They own a Major League team that he manages?

    I could maybe swallow Annie and Crash having a son who's about to start playing in the bush leagues, but are Shelton and Costner really this desperate?

    As long as Jackie Mason isn't in it...

    Didn't someone at ESPN or SI.com write a recent column, catching up with the characters? I never cared for the movie, but I thought the column was amusing.

    Can't say I'm surprised by this. Creativity is dead. They've churned out book sequels to just about everything, including classics like "Casablanca" (I read that one. Ugh.) and continued classics without the original authors, like the Godfather. Sad indeed.
