    Then Why Is it Called 'Battleship'? Peter Berg Says The Movie Has "No Direct Correlation" With The Game

But with the show coming to a close for the second time it's given fans and news outlets alike a chance to start memorializing the show. Grantland has a must-read oral history of the show by its cast and creators and a few days ago the ...
