Long Overdue Props, Vol. XIV

If you were to assemble a summit of the acting superpowers of our lifetimes, the roster, by simple definition, would have to include Robert Loggia, Hector Elizondo, Kathy Ireland, Jason Bateman, Sen. Fred Thompson, Scott Bakula, and of course, Sinbad.

What if I told you this ensemble cast had already been assembled?

That's right. All those amazing actors, plus Rob Schneider, appeared together in 1991's hysterical powerhouse Necessary Roughness. It's a classic "gang of misfits" tale, and it delivers on its low expectations. So well, in fact, I'm offering it up in the fourteenth installment of Long Overdue Props.

Bakula et al., I salute you and the rags-to-riches story of the Texas State University Fightin' Armadillos football team.

As a related aside, the numbering system on this series may soon be out of control, like the Super Bowl, which could hit SB LXXXVII in my lifetime.
