Thanks for the review. I finally rented this on Blu-Ray and watched it last night. The picture and sound were great but what I was most surprised by is that I liked the story. I'm probably in the minority, but I didn't like Anchorman or Talladega Nights very much and didn't find them very funny.

For me, in recent years Saturday Night Live has been the king of taking a funny 1-2 minute skit and running it for 5-10 minutes, making it unfunny in the process. In my opinion, Will Ferrell has done this in most of his movies also. I think the editing is tighter in Semi-Pro and as a result I enjoyed it. It always felt like the story was moving along and not overly long SNL sketches patched together.

I looked up a website that talks about the old ABA league and was surprised to learn that this is where Bob Costas got his start. I was also surprised that there is apparently a new ABA league that started a few years ago.
