This is the final vote of the first round! Just in time for August we'll be able to move onto the second round, as the Twins try to make a final push to another division title.

I'm not sure we even really need to vote for this one, but we will anyway.

BASEketball (1998) - Starring Trey Parker and Matt Stone (of South Park fame, naturally), this is actually underrated as far as comedy goes. Basically, Joe and Doug are the same as they were in high school and are labelled losers at a party. In order to impress the jocks and a couple of girls they make up a game that they can win: because they're great shooting a basketball as long as they don't have to dribble, jump or move. H-O-R-S-E turns into baseball, with misses outs, etc. It catches on like wildfire, and a nation-wide league is formed. They guys become rich, they call the little dude bitch, and after making loads of money one of them starts to change. But can they hold it together long enough to beat the Dallas Felons in the finals, and keep them from selling out the game?

Major League (1989) - When the new owner of the Cleveland Indians decides she can make tons of money by selling off the franchise, she loads the team up with youngers and has-beens, in the hope of driving fans away a giving her the excuse she needs to make the sale. Things look bleak early, but the team and a grizzled manager come together to face their common enemy. Wild Thing gets glasses, Willy Mays Hayes steals like 70 bases in the last month of the season (seriously, how many gloves does he get there during the montage?), the veteran who wants to become an interior designer starts diving for balls, voodoo finally works and Tom Berenger proves once and for all that if you stalk a girl long enough she'll love you.
