    Major League's Lou Brown Dies



    Review St. Louis | James Gammon, Manager Lou Brown in “Major League” Dies at Age 70 | Movie Reviews, Entertainment Reviews, HD Trailers and Everything St. Louis


    Don't know if this was posted before. This was just a classic movie.

    [The Indians General Manager calls minor league coach Lou Brown at Tire World to offer him a position with the Indians]
    Charlie Donovan: How would you like to manage the Indians this year?
    Lou Brown: Ooooh, Gee, I don't know...
    Charlie Donovan: What do you mean, you don't know? This is your chance to manage in the big leagues.
    Lou Brown: Let me get back to you, will ya, Charlie? I got a guy on the other line asking about some white walls. I'll talk to you later.


    RIP James Gammon

    Still my favorite movie. Coach Brown had perhaps the deepest voice ever heard.

    Lou Brown: Taylor, it's not your job to make excuses. That's all you guys do good! It's either a *leg* thing or a *spiritual* thing, or a *psychological* thing, or a *heart attack*!
    Jake Taylor: Who used heart attack?
    Lou Brown: Me.
    [collapses from a heart attack]


    Sorry, had to be done We'll miss you, Lou...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    "Lou, would you like to come manage the Cleveland Indians?"
    "I don't know, i got a guy that is pretty excited about a set of white walls on the other line"


    One of my favorite lines from that movie


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I found the part where he wizzed on Dorn's contract particularly humorous.
