Fasten your seatbelts, folks, I think this might turn out to be a bumpy ride.
It has been announced that Joe Buck and Tim McCarver will be hosting an “All Star Sunday” movie marathon on the cable network FX on July 12th, the Sunday before the MLB All-Star Game.
Brililant! The only thing that could make this better is if they lined up some awesome movies to watch while we viewers nosh on popcorn and listen to Buck and McCarver break down movies with the same wit, class and insight they bring to their MLB on Fox broadcasts…so, what movies are they showing?
The movie marathon includes recent fare such as Mr. 3000, Fever Pitch and The Benchwarmers, in addition to the premiere of the animated movie Everyone’s Hero.
The marathon will also include a look at the “Top 10 All-Star Plays.”
Well that just sounds absolutely…abysmal. Those movies are simply brutal – not that I’ve seen them – but you can imagine, right?
I’m sorry, but this is just a terrible idea on all counts. Seriously, watching this might be a violation of the Geneva Conventions.
After the jump, my ideas as to what sort of insight viewers will be forced to endure if they truly are gluttons for punishment and actually watch this abortion of a concept.
Shit, the only thing that saving this from being a complete disaster is Artie Lange and tank of Nitrous. Now that would be something.
