TCM Guest Programmer: Rich Eisen

NFL Network host Rich Eisen joins Robert Osborne tonight as TCM's Guest Programmer for June. I mentioned in the Dennis Hopper obituary that TCM is showing Hoosiers tonight at 8:00 PM ET as the first of Eisen's picks. Eisen, being a sports broadcaster, has selected three more sports movies:

Rocky at 10:00 PM, in which Sylvester Stallone likes Talia Shire without a hat;
The Natural at 12:15 AM, in which Robert Redford breaks light bulbs by hitting them with baseballs; and
Caddyshack at 2:30 AM, the quintessential low-rent golf comedy.

Interestingly, Eisen didn't select a movie about the NFL, of which the best would probably be the Billy Wilder comedy The Fortune Cookie.
