30 for 30 Investigates 1994’s ‘Angels in the Outfield’

I have a soft spot in my heart for the 1994 sports dramedy Angels in the Outfield even though as an adult I can admit that it’s kind of a silly movie (albeit one that stars not one but two future Oscar-winners with Matthew McConaughey and Adrien Brody). But I absolutely love this College Humor spoof that uses the film to parody ESPN’s documentary series, 30 for 30. They absolutely nailed 30 for 30‘s studied tone while also pointing out the ridiculousness of Angels in the Outfield and other 90s sports films.

If you’re a fan of 30 for 30 and/or Angels in the Outfield, you need to stop what you’re doing for five minutes and watch this video [hat tip to Esquire for bringing this to my attention].


Also, just when I thought I couldn’t like Neal McDonough even more, he shows up in this. It’s a shame they didn’t get anyone other than him and Milton Davis Jr. How did they not get Brody? Brody was in InAPPropriate Comedy. How much can his quote possibly be?
