With it being announced that "Fever Pitch" is to be re-made with a U.S. theme, I wonder, is baseball the right sport to base it on. Although probably "America's sport" (albeit it's origins lay in English cricket and "rounders"), does it have the same impact or similarities as say, American football, basketball, or ice hockey. At least in those sports, one could consider a "final minute Breakthrough" "a la" Michael Thomas, whereby maybe a running back has 4 or 5 defenders to get by iin dramatic fashion to score the winning touchdown; (same either in ice hockey or baseball), or a field goal just clearing the posts in the final minute, (like the penalty that Dennis Bergkamp DIDN'T score against Man. Utd.). Baseball doesn't appear to have that "final contact" either legal or illegal to override, or get by in order to bring about the "thrill" (an understatement!!) as on 26th May 1989. I doubt in any event the film will have the same passion as the original, but what do you think on baseball as being the correct choice of sport? (P.S. My "only regret" about Fever Pitch was not being in it! I was working in Highbury at the time, and they wanted Arsenal supporters to "play themselves". Probably the final scene for about 3 days filming. Did not have enough days left to take off. IDIOT!! SHOULD HAVE "GONE SICK". What a classic!!!!!!
