Easily one of my favorite scenes in any film. Listening to Ray Charles’s rendition of “America The Beautiful” always gives me goosebumps. The monologue about Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez and his love for baseball just add to that impact. Everything in this scene is quintessential America. Baseball, good food, fireworks, and good company. Nothing better than that.
This has been a trying year for all Americans but things will get better. So enjoy the weekend. You deserve it. Cook some killer burgers or steaks, drink some beers, and spend some good time with friends and family, even if it has to be virtual. Lastly, stay safe guys.
