Yesterday was my first practice with the official SXSW softball team, Pretty Unicorns From Space. Yeah, that’s our name. Don’t ask. Our first game is July 19… get ready.
In the meantime, and on a somewhat related note, Richard Linklater’s remake of the ’70s baseball cult fave The Bad News Bears is set for national release on July 22. To kick it off proper, Rick will host a special Austin premiere at the Paramount Theater on July 20. The premiere will include not only a screening of the film, starring Billy Bob Thornton and Marcia Gay Harden, but also an after-party at Dart Bowl.
