I Made Alicia Watch A Sports Movie | Sports Movie Review Podcast

Hi, my name is Matt, and I absolutely love sports movies (to the extent that everybody else apparently loves Marvel movies). And, my girlfriend Alicia has basically never watched any of them…ever. So, every week, I bribe Alicia with a box of Milk Duds and a can of Dr. Pepper so that she will sit down, watch a new sports movie with me, and then get on the mic and talk about it (for as long as it takes).

This week I made Alicia watch the 1992 Tom Hanks / Geena Davis baseball classic – A League of Their Own – a movie kinda based on actual events and actual people…but with lots of great Hollywood literary license taken to spice things up a bit for the screen.
