42

I saw the movie 42 tonight...it was awesome! The life story of Jackie Robinson and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey.

Truly a must-see movie.

Generally, not my thing....but occasionally, there's the ones you just gotta see. 42 went beyond being a mere baseball story. It spoke to the dark times of severe racism in this country, just as many black men were getting home from WWII, in thus case.
