A lot of sand is nothing to write home about. However, THE Sandlot is an entirely different (and thoroughly entertaining) story. Aside from the fact it’s been a quarter-century since The Sandlot premiered in movie theaters, this film is timeless and will always be 25 kinds of awesome.
What’s more trying: Avoiding the famed pitfalls of Friday the 13th or attempting to recover a baseball signed by Babe Ruth (or Baby Ruth, for true Sandlot fans) hit over a neighbor’s fence and into a backyard guarded a monstrous dog?
Well, you’ll only want to relive one on repeat.
It seems like a match made in
heaven a shoe with its laces.
Mia Galuppo of The Hollywood Reporter has reported that America’s favorite everyman Tom Hanks is set to portray America’s favorite next door neighbor of yesteryear:
The film will be a biopic titled You Are My Friend. Interestingly, Tom Hanks played another affable American icon back in 2013 as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks co-starring the quick-witted Emma Thompson. Given Mr. Rogers’ sunny disposition that never appeared to set, what was he like beyond his polite TV persona?
Here’s a quick flashback, calming as always in front of the camera.

The world continues to spin seemingly out of control from various forms of chaos and uncertainty on far too many issues to count these days and during the past several years. And the necessity for random, happy stories reaches peak level more often than not. You need it. I need it. We all need it.
This is one of those moments that will (not should, but will) bring a smile to your face.
The famed expression is, “kids say the darndest things.” Well, as the 6-year-old boy in the video shows us, kids also have the potential and power to say the nicest things.
