  Amazon.com: Game 6: DVD: Michael Keaton,Catherine O'Hara,Griffin Dunne,Bebe Neuwirth,Robert Downey Jr.,Ari ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Game 6, the first produced screenplay by acclaimed novelist Don DeLillo (White Noise), follows the obsession of a playwright, Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton), whose beloved jinxed Red Sox are playing game six of the 1986 World Series--the same night Rogan's new play opens on Broadway.
The actual footage of the game was fun to watch for this sports fan, though I still feel bad for Buckner, and all the BOSOX fans, when that ball went through his glove and the Mets scored the winning run as a result.
Game 6 is a charming and funny movie with Keaton playing a playwright who's afraid of failure.

  DeLillo's 'Game 6' is painfully good - The Boston Globe
In terms of demographic appeal, ''Game 6" has an uncommonly narrow strike zone: literary-minded Red Sox fanatics who recall with awful clarity exactly where they were on the night of Oct. 25, 1986.
The screenplay for ''Game 6" has been written by novelist Don DeLillo -- the first time this literary giant has stooped to the medium of film -- and it won't surprise readers of ''White Noise" or ''Cosmopolis" that Manhattan is painted as a sprawling three-ring circus on the brink of collapse.
''Game 6" ends, as it must, with Nicky in a packed New York bar watching the world as he knows it come once more to an end.

In 13 playoff games this season, the standout sophomore is averaging 28 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.8 assists.

After being inactive in the first game, he has one tackle from scrimmage, one tackle on the kickoff team and three quarterback hurries in four brief appearances.
This is a game in which they must put pressure on the Vikings' defense early and keep their defensive line on its heels.
The Packers have a 3-2 record in their last five games at the Metrodome, and part of that is because they've not lost a fumble.

Other new moves include the ability to retain control of the ball when sliding in to tackle, while all-new feints and backwards dribbling are now available thanks to the improved dribbling controls, while headers have been changed to allow players more movement in the way their strikers jump and head the ball.
With its slick moves and realistic action, Pro Evolution Soccer 6 is certain to glide past rival titles with ease and enjoys an impressive roster of new moves, licensed clubs, and gameplay modes.
Konami’s naming conventions remain as bonkers as ever, then, and the game’s overall list of official licenses is sporadic as always, but luckily the Edit function goes a long way to making up for this.

Clemens and Garner said some of the pitcher's Game 4 struggles could be attributed to the aftermath of a stomach virus, but Clemens has rarely pitched on short rest at this stage of his career.
Counting the game against Atlanta, Clemens has done it only four times (twice in the regular season) in the last 10 years.
In those games, he was 1-2 with a 7.84 earned-run average.

 Game 6 (2006): Reviews
Written by acclaimed writer Don DeLillo, Game 6 is an intelligent, witty, unsettling tale of one man’s encounter with his demons, his passions and his infatuation with failure.
Game 6, the first screenplay by one of America's great living novelists, Don DeLillo, is poorly served by Michael Hoffman's flat, soporific direction.
Although "Game 6" feels like a filmed play at times(especially in the bar as game six unreels), the dialogue is so clever, to quibble over the film's staginess will make you sound like a victim of didacticism("A movie should, blah, blah, blah...).

Roman Cechmanek didn't have his usual bounce-back game as Philadelphia lost consecutive playoff contests for the first time this season.
Last year, the Flyers were eliminated by Ottawa in the first round in five games and were outscored 11-2.

 New York Rangers Official Web Site :: Game Preview - Home, sweet home for Rangers in Game 6 today
In terms of what was at stake, the regular-season game closest to this one was likely the March 3 victory over St. Louis — a moment in which the Rangers literally turned their season around and became a playoff contender.
By taking Games 6 and 7 one at a time, the Rangers can erase the memory of missing their chance to take a series lead when Chris Drury scored in the closing seconds of the third period and Maxim Afinogenov tallied in overtime at Buffalo on Friday.
That game, ended by a Peter Forsberg overtime goal, had everyone writing off the Wings, but Shanahan and Co. went out to dominate the Avs in Games 6 and 7, winning the series and the Stanley Cup.

Coming off a disappointing 3-2 overtime loss Saturday in Game 6, Calgary is trying not to think about apparent goals, poor performances or opportunities lost.

The Flames were tight to start the game, and though they rallied twice to force overtime, the team's best players were out of sorts.
