[Our movie is set in New York. “Home” is from the perspective of the winners, get it? The Braves (Barves) are the experienced though bumbling crooks. We figure there is no way these young whipper snappers can make us look so bad again. Thus is the source of the humor of the movie.]
We the “Sticky Bandits,” knew our team needed talent infusion. So, it was that Mike Foltynewicz was brought up (or is it down?) to the Major League team. The first inning essentially decided this. David Wright with the foreign object to the head (HR). Yoenis Cespedes with the electric shock (Two run HR). Lucas Duda with the serious burn injury (HR). And thus, Kevin McAllister had bested the Sticky Bandits and only needed to find Rockefeller Center and give a dove to Mom.
Our Sticky Bandits suffered from the fact that the townhouse being rebuilt had no source of power. This lineup is so “unpowerful” that is should be called Lichtenstein. The Barves “outhit” the Mets 9 to 8, but you see what that gets when nobody can put the ball over the fence.
FINALLY, in the 9th, The Barves barved 1 up.
Just like when we first see the Sticky Bandits in the movie, when we first see the Braves on a baseball field we just wait for what manner of disaster they will meet. I thought this would be a tough year to get through, but not like this.
