Debate: Bull Durham vs. Field of Dreams

5 Feb

It’s been tense at The Max of late. Ever since we did a post that listed Kevin Costner’s baseball film “Field of Dreams” as a more superior movie than “Bull Durham” it’s been like the Montagues and the Capulets around here.

To clear the air, let’s allow the people to decide. Here’s what the three Max honchos had to say:

Jeff: Sorry, but I liked “Tin Cup” better than both. Go ahead, make your jokes. K-Cos + Rene Russo = romantic comedy perfection. Or is it infection?
Jack: “Bull Durham was a cinematic masterpiece. Any movie that can make Susan Sarandon actually look sexy needs to be recognized for its greatness. What? You think she’s always been a hottie? Go watch “Thelma & Louise” and get back to me on that one.
Zack: I’m going with “Field of Dreams” for the sole reason that “Bull Durham” was dominated by Tim Robbins. Can it really be considered a “Costner movie” if he was upstaged by another actor in the film? No. Therefore, I’m going with “Field of Dreams.”
We need your help on this. Come on, pick a side.

If Citi bails, what do the Mets name their ballpark?

3 Feb

Not great news for the seventeen Mets fans left on planet Earth. Seems as if Citigroup may be trying to weasel out of its deal with the “other” New York baseball team. That would leave an issue seeing as the name of the ballpark is supposed to be Citi Field.

That got us thinking about what the name would be if Citi decides to — no pun intended – bailout of the deal. 

Possible Names:


  • Bankrupt Field
  • Advertisers Wanted Park
  • Please Buy Tix Stadium
  • Yes, the Mets Still Have a Team SportsPlex

Announcement from The Max

2 Feb

Proving The Max is recession proof, TheMax.MLBlogs.com has reached an agreement with big name free agent Zack Zeigler.

Zeigler, who joins the staff as Director of Content Development, is excited about the opportunity. “I’ve been following The Max since its inception; it’s great to be able to contribute to their brand of humor.”

Jack Maxwell, however, is lukewarm about the announcement. “Apparently, the boss at our parent company thinks we can use some help, as he put it, ‘being funny.’ Let’s hope this acquisition accomplishes this so we stop getting those ‘that post wasn’t any good’ emails.”

Jeff Maxwell could not be reached for comment.
