|This bit of silliness is something I put together using footage
from the 1987 TV movie Alamo, Thirteen Days to Glory. The
original opening scene takes place the night before the
Mexican army arrived and as Col. Travis (Alec Baldwin) is
discussing with his servant and friend Joe (Hinton Battle) how
they came to be here.
Given my personal connections to the movie, the facts that I
am both a Texas history and a baseball buff (and the likelihood
that I'm probably just a little bit warped), this small production
was tragically inevitable.
By the way, in the event you miss the punch line here, in their
classic routine, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello never named
their right fielder.
