Undraftables AKA The Top 200 For 2014-15 Fantasy Basketball

Sean Connery.  Kevin Costner.  Tons of Great Depression-esque costumes.  I'd imagine if you're in a deep league and looking at the field below with your last pick or two, you're feeling something like this: It's pretty hopeless, as in 12-teamers these are all likely guys you're merely starring on your watch list post draft.  There's some questionable...

Field of Dreams, 25 Years Later

It’s hard to believe that one of the greatest sports movies ever came out a quarter century ago this year. When Field of Dreams was released back in April of 1989, no one knew what to expect. Kevin Costner had previously starred in another baseball movie, Bull Durham, but the idea of a fictional baseball field in Iowa playing host to deceased players of the past had fantasy...

Minor league geyser..."Oh my goodness! We got ourselves a natural disaster."

Somewhere, Kevin Costner is awkwardly sipping a beer and approving of the geyser.The game on Wednesday was played in Fort Wayne, IN between the hometown Tincaps and the Great Lakes Loons.

Real-life Crash Davis Hits 300th Home Run

In the 1988 film “Bull Durham”, much is made of Kevin Costner’s character Crash Davis and his dogged pursuit of the seemingly mythical Minor League record of 246 home runs. Now, I’m not sure if that was ever the official record or not, or if the number was used simply because it seemed like an awful lot of dingers for someone who spent their entire career in the Minors....

Kevin Costner to Return to Field of Dreams

In 1987, Sue Riedel, a volunteer for the Iowa Film Office stumbled upon a 193 acre farm just a few miles northeast of Dyersville, Iowa.  Two years later, that quiet farm at 28995 Lansing Road hit the silver screen as the backdrop of “Field of Dreams”. The rest is history. So, it’s fitting that on the 25th anniversary of the release of the American classic, plans are in the...

Big Ten Shines Bright In Coster’s “Draft Day”

No, this isn’t a movie review site, nor am I trying to turn it into one. But I watched a movie today. It was about football — sort of, and the Big Ten Conference had a pretty decent supporting role. In Draft Day, Kevin Costner plays the role of general manager of the Cleveland Browns. The movie was fictional, but it was true to life in that it portrayed the Browns and their fans...

The Browns could have been trading with the Jets in Draft Day movie

I’m not spoiling Draft Day when I say that it involves some wheeling and dealing for draft picks in and around the NFL Draft.

What I found out today, though, is that originally the Browns were supposed...

Draft Day, which opens this weekend, stars Kevin Costner as the fictional general manager of the real-life-but-fictionalized Cleveland Browns.
