SPORTS TALK

Part 1

Major league report:
Midterm grades

[JULY 20, 2000]  A few months ago this LDN reporter made some bold predictions about this year’s major league baseball season, and amazingly some of them have actually come true!  This proves once again, conclusively, that if you make enough predictions you might actually stumble on a correct one every once in a while.  Needless to say, it has been an exciting campaign so far.  The St. Louis Cardinals are in first place by seven games over the Cincinnati Reds, and the Chicago White Sox have a double-digit lead over the Cleveland Indians in their respective Central Divisions.  The Chicago Cubs managed to keep Sammy Sosa on board and hope to turn things around during the second half of the year.  This week the LDN gives you a mid-season look at how the season has shaped up so far and what you might expect in the second half.

MOVIES & VIDEOS
"Angela's Ashes"

[JULY 20, 2000]  I had four movies in my hands. I put back the two movies that looked like they were definitely second-run B movies, leaving me with a comedy starring Bruce Willis, and what appeared to be a solemn tragedy, "Angela’s Ashes." Any movie which has a title that names people in their post-cremation state is probably not going to be uplifting. But the recommendations and the photographs on the box convinced me that this was the movie for us tonight. Maybe I should have chosen Bruce instead.
