Instead of a show, we’ve got a show reunion for you.
This comes courtesy of WEEI.com’s Matt Kalman, who said our Gen X readers would appreciate this most:
If you’re not at work this morning or can set your DVR before you leave, Coach Carter is on AMC from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Can’t believe that movie came out 15 years ago.
For some reason, I thought Coach Carter was on Netflix, too. It’s not. You know what is, though? Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Return of the King is on there, too. And those have some epic battles, but they’re not over the top. Had Fellowship of the Ring on in the background Tuesday, and that movie doesn’t get the credit it deserves. However — and I expect I’m not alone in this — fast forward through all the Frodo parts in each of these movies.
ESPN may not be able to give us their new Michael Jordan 30 for 30 ahead of schedule, but they’re still rolling out some good ones this week. At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, we’ll get I Hate Christian Laettner. Then, ESPN will have its NFL Free Agency Special at 9 p.m.
Also, ESPN Classic has classic baseball on from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. After that, they’ve got a classic Celtics game: Game 4 of the 1981 Eastern Conference Finals against the Sixers — though, it’s not exactly a game that ended well for Boston.
