MILD THING: Why MAJOR LEAGUE would be way too POLITICALLY INCORRECT to be made today

Christian Toto at PJ Media has a great post on just how far we’ve fallen as a culture since the halcyon days when a movie as hilarious and relentlessly offensive as Major League could be made and, horrors, become a hit and cult classic.

The boys of summer are back where they belong.

Spring Training began this week, a time when even the lowliest of teams can dream of playing meaningful baseball in September.

Except maybe the Cincinnati Reds.

It’s the perfect time to revisit “Major League,” the 1989 comedy starring Tom Berenger, Corbin Bernsen, and Charlie Sheen as Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn. The bawdy comedy not only nailed the game’s essentials but gave us plenty of memorable quotes.

Like, “Juuuuust a bit outside,” from legendary announcer Bob Uecker.

The movie spawned two inferior sequels, but the original’s luster has yet to fade. Who doesn’t love a big league comedy with attitude? Maybe those Social Justice Warriors. The SJW crowd would try to crush it if it came out today. Why? It’s politically incorrect in more than a few ways.

1. The Villain Is … Gasp … a Woman

2. Cultural Appropriation Run Amok

3. PETA, Watch Out!

4. Wrong Logo, Wrong Team

 

Check out the whole post at PJ Media. And be sure to watch the embedded clips from the flick.

Ten Sparta bucks says any Spartan baseball fans out there rent or stream the whole movie again before the weekend is over.

Ten more to any Spartan who then screens Slap Shot as the second half of the Most Politically Incorrect Double Feature Ever.

And yet ten more to the Spartan that correctly picks which flick tossed out more effenhiemers: Slap Shot or Scarface.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
