I’m starting to have a piece-de-resistance kind of idea in honor of the upcoming Flying Fork Day.
It’s Romeo and Juliet. A new film version. Based on the Yankees/Red Socks rivalry. It’s called Red Leather. It’s directed by David Lynch. And it goes something like this…
VOICEOVER (HARRY DEAN STANTON): Two clubs, alike in history…
–Cut to shot of a screaming fan being violently stabbed in the parking lot outside Fenway Park while rap music blares in the background. Cut to black.
VO: …in fair Boston, where we lay our scene…
ALEX RODRIGUEZ: “No sir, but I do kick sand, sir.”
It’s going to be brilliant.
Or further evidence that bad ideas spring from procrastinating minds.
