i don't think there's any magic or conspiracy or required amount of drinks to buy grayson to get listed here. but what do i know, i've lucked out in getting my gigs covered by the indy, but i could never booked at troika, batting .000 on that front in my ten years of living in durham. carrboro's less fickle, thank you carrboro music fest ;)
Joe Morgan seems to think the film captured minor league baseball and Durham (from Grayson Currin's piece in this issue of the Indy) rather well:
"I thought it was a great movie because it depicts life in the minor leagues ... The minor leagues as depicted in Bull Durham is the way that I remember it."
Also, I think with writer/director Ron Shelton's time as a minor league player himself, he's probably as good an authority on what it was like to play the minor leagues.
As for stupid nicknames, "Crash" Davis, as most any Bulls fan knows, was a real person. Can't blame that on Shelton.
the brown mtn. lights part of the hege v bill has been cancelled. it was never booked as great big gone. was an unfortunate miscommunication.
