Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

baseballsIt’s the middle of summer and halfway through baseball season. I’m not a huge baseball fan myself, but I do enjoy a good baseball movie. Baseball movies remind me of sitting in the nosebleed section at the ballpark, eating hot dogs and peanuts, singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch, watching fireworks after the game, and cheering on my favorite team.

If you’re like me and can’t make it out to Minute Maid Park to watch the Astros play, there are plenty of baseball movies to get you through the season. Browse the HCPL catalog and request your favorite today!

Football, Football, Football!

footballs on a fieldFootball season is here! At least that’s what the radio tells me. This morning while I was sitting in traffic, I quickly noticed that every single station was discussing opening weekend, speculating on how the Texans will do this season, or finalizing fantasy football teams. I admit, this wasn’t my favorite thing to listen to during my commute, but it did get me thinking about movies. I may not be the world’s (or even the library’s) biggest football fan, but I do like good football movies. They make me think of fall and marching bands, team spirit and hot dogs, and standing on the bleachers at

college, cheering on my team.

If you are in the mood for a football flick, browse the HCPL catalog and request a movie today!
