Bull Durham is without a doubt the worst movie I’ve ever seen. But I wouldn’t walk out…

It started with Rich. He and I had been getting to know each other, and he finally called to ask me out to a movie. Bull Durham. He was thinking sports movie with a little romance and a little humor. Great choice for a first-date movie

But it wasn’t really a movie about baseball, and there was precious little humor. And there was no romance, just sleeping around.

How embarrassing for a first date, especially when we met at Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. But we sat through every sordid minute of that movie, holding hands. We liked each other, so neither one of us wanted to leave. We just focused on the hand-holding instead of the movie.

In the weeks that followed, we filled in the missing romance ourselves.
