Raise your hand if you've ever been personally victimized by the Brewers pitching staff. (*Entire Chicago Cubs starting lineup raises hands*)
Last year, during some downtime during spring training, the Brewers busted out a mean remake of "The Sandlot" that took the internet by storm. Several months later, they were a game away from the World Series. Since one of the key rules of baseball is "Never mess with a winning streak," the Brewers have done it again, this time spoofing the 2000s comedy classic "Mean Girls."
This spoof video is indeed ... yep, I'm going to make the obvious joke ... fetch.
Craig Counsell as "not a regular manager but a cool manager" is as delightful as you'd hope, any digs we can make at the Dodgers are always appreciated after last year's NLCS battle, and I don't know if they give out awards for the best sports team viral video performances, but between this and last season's impeccable "Dumb and Dumber" riff, Brent Suter should have a whole trophy case of faux Oscars. The man is perfectly channeling Regina George here. He is flawless. I hear his arm is insured for $10,000. I hear he does car commercials ... in Japan. One time he met John Stamos on a plane ... and he told him he was a fan.
Anyways, this video is the perfect little tease for opening day, which is now just ten days away. You go, Brew Crew! (And none for the St. Louis Cardinals.)
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
