Its The Perfect Time To Watch Red Dawn

I’m hopping on a plane Thursday for Wisconsin, and it’s the perfect time to watch “Red Dawn.”
For those of you who don’t know, “Red Dawn” is probably my all-time favorite movie. I saw it for the first time when I was a young kid, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. (RELATED: Watching ‘Band Of Brothers‘ Never Gets Old. Here’s Why It’s Such A Great Series)
In fact, when I was given a 10/22 as a child, I would shoot soda cans and other targets pretending they were communist invaders. I had a very fun childhood.
With the weather starting to change and cool down, it reminds me of the setting of the 1984 classic about a bunch of high school students fighting a guerilla war against the communists.
The movie with Charlie Sheen and Patrick Swayze is so pro-America that it’s hard to not to stand up and cheer whenever it’s playing.
What the hell more could you ever want?
Let’s be honest, who didn’t dream as a kid growing up of grabbing some rifles, taking off for the mountains or woods and waging war to save the red, white and blue? There’s about a 100,000 rounds of .22 ammo spread out over the woods where I grew up that witnessed it firsthand.
Now, I think I’ll fire up “Red Dawn” and watch it on the flight back to WI. If you’ve never seen it before, I can’t recommend it enough.
P.S.: One of my best friends loves telling the story when we met up Saturday for a Badgers game after a late Friday night at the bars, and I was very hungover. When he asked why, I said I had a few more beers while watching “Red Dawn” in my apartment. When asked if I watched the original or the remake, I simply said “both.” He loves telling that story and I love hearing it!

García to start Game 6 of ALCS for Astros against Red Sox
HOUSTON (AP) — Rookie Luis García will start for the Houston Astros against the Boston Red Sox in Game 6 of the AL Championship Series on Friday night with a trip to the World Series on the line.
García started Game 2 and gave up a grand slam in the first inning before leaving with no outs in the second because of discomfort in his right knee. Manager Dusty Baker announced Thursday that García would get the ball for Game 6 and said the Astros are confident the problem is behind García and he’ll be 100% healthy for Friday’s start.
The Astros fell behind 2-1 in the series after two big wins by the Red Sox. But they rode their powerful offense to consecutive victories in the last two games to take the series lead and move within a win of advancing to the World Series for the second time in three seasons.
The Astros won the championship in 2017, a crown tainted by the team’s sign-stealing scandal, before losing to the Washington Nationals in seven games in the 2019 World Series.
The Red Sox previously announced that Nathan Eovaldi would start Game 6. Eovaldi got the win in a solid Game 2 start but was charged with the loss in Game 4 after giving up the go-ahead runs after coming in with the game tied in the ninth.
The Astros got eight terrific innings from Framber Valdez in a 9-1 win in Game 5. The performance gave Houston’s taxed bullpen a much-needed break after relievers pitched 29 1/3 innings combined through the first four games.
Baker said Jake Odorizzi would be available for long relief Friday if needed. Odorizzi threw 82 pitches in four innings in Game 2 after taking over following the injury to García.
Baker also said rookie center fielder Jake Meyers, who hasn’t played this series after injuring his shoulder in the final game of the ALDS, probably wouldn’t return to the lineup in this series. He said Meyers could pinch-run or pinch-hit but isn’t ready to return to the field. Fellow rookies Chas McCormick and rookie José Siri have filled in at center against the Red Sox.
Houston is without ace Lance McCullers Jr. for this series because of a flexor pronator muscle strain in his right arm. Baker said Thursday that McCullers still hasn’t resumed throwing, so it’s unclear if he would be available to return if the Astros were to advance.
If necessary, Game 7 would be Saturday night in Houston.
