Livetweeting A League of Their Own tonight at 8PM Eastern. Hashtag #ALOTO. Streaming at…. Let's do this.
Two hours! #ALOTO
One hour! #ALOTO
I know a couple folks are planning on joining us for this, so just a heads-up—@grammar_girl got stuck at work so we're going to be starting just a wee bit late. Let's call it 8:20. #ALOTO
And yeah, I'm gonna be livetweeting on the main, because I'm a big old sappy sap. You may want to mute the hashtag. #ALOTO
Okay. Here we go. Ten minutes. 8:20 ET. #ALOTO GO! #ALOTO
This was the first movie I ever watched with my older daughter—the first movie she ever saw. I've probably watched it a dozen times with the kids since. It's a big deal in our house. #ALOTO
It wasn't until like the fourth time I saw this movie that I was sure Geena Davis dubbed the lines for Old Geena Davis. Beautifully done. #ALOTO
"Kill 'im." #ALOTO
God, the old-ladies-playing-baseball scenes in the wraparound get me so hard. #ALOTO
I want a Lukash Dairy jersey. And a Staten Island Stevedores. #ALOTO
I like the high ones. #ALOTO
(Seriously, you're gonna want to mute the hashtag. It's gonna be like this all night.)
"And this is our other daughter, Dottie's sister." Why are Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel so much less annoying in this movie than every other movie? #ALOTO
"Well then, this would be more, wouldn't it?" The first of a zillion lines from this movie I yell at my kids on a weekly basis. #ALOTO
The only performance of Jon Lovitz's that doesn't suck, and we have Penny Marshall to thank for it. #ALOTO
A hundred movies have "running to catch a moving train" scenes, easy. This is the best one. #ALOTO
Staging the batting tryout in the gym in the rain so you get the broken windows and the echoing and the fielders standing by impotently is just such a smart, gorgeous choice. Such a well-crafted movie. #ALOTO
God, Eddie Jones as Marla Hooch's dad. The love and pride and chagrin. Every second of his performance makes me misty. #ALOTO
Madonna's jersey is Peekskill Parks. How is it that nobody has made replicas of all these? #ALOTO
"Can you read, honey?"

Tears. Tears. #ALOTO
Also, that Hoboken jersey is fucking AMAZING. #ALOTO
"A lotta night games" is the Ganz/Mandel hackery we've been missing. #ALOTO
"Boy, that was some good peeing" is one of my favorite lines, and line readings, in this movie. #ALOTO
Just gonna say it, since I'm apparently saying everything tonight—David Strathairn is one of the sexiest men on the planet. #ALOTO
Excellent Laverne and Shirley cameo: The Big Ragu dancing with Madonna at the Suds Bucket. #ALOTO
It had to be you. #ALOTO
Wonderful casting on the hot priest taking Madonna's confession. Two seconds, no lines, but *mwah*. #ALOTO
And grabb-ed her milky ... milky white ... milky white bre... #ALOTO
God, @Rosie. So great. Thank you. #ALOTO
"You got a second? Can I ask you a question? Which team do you play for?" Here we go. #ALOTO
I love the way this movie raises the stakes and grounds the story in its time with moments like Madonna's "I'm not going back!" speech. #ALOTO
"You think there are men in this country who ain't seen your bosoms?"God, this movie. #ALOTO
"You're right, I'm wrong. I know. I know. I just get so mad. Why you gotta be so good?" Perfect @loripetty is perfect. #ALOTO
This is what I look like when I'm restraining myself, by the way. I could easily be tweeting three times as much. #pissonyourhat #ALOTO
Hanks when he asks for the telegram. The look on his face. Damn. #ALOTO
I'm dead now. #ALOTO
The partnership between Dottie and Jimmy—a man and a woman, co-workers and friends, a real passionate friendship—is still so rare in mainstream movies. #ALOTO
"You're ... still ... missing ... the cutoff man." —Me to my kids, every single time they fuck up. #ALOTO
Man, Lori Petty in the ninth inning. Jesus. #ALOTO
She sure does like the high ones. #ALOTO
Does Dottie drop the ball on purpose? #ALOTO

"I'm sorry I knocked you over."
"No you're not."

"What do you mean, why? I already got a job." #ALOTO
Wanna see what Old Dottie looked like when she was young? (Hint: Yes, you do.) #ALOTO
I present you Lynn Cartwright. #ALOTO
All right. Let me try that again. The old-ladies-playing-baseball scenes in the wraparound just floor me every time. #ALOTO
Damn. Thanks, Penny.
Oof. That was a hell of a lot of fun. And I only lost ten followers. #ALOTO
