I forgot how absurd the start of this was. “Man, I like my rival’s girlfriend, but I’m just a dumb schlub. I guess I’ll win a major golf tournament to catch her eye!” But the rest of it is so smooth and satisfying (though still absurd), it almost doesn't matter. Even though I know how it ends, I get excited and nervous every time. (I can’t claim total objectivity: for reasons unknown, its soundtrack was among ten CDs I had with me in college for the first month until the rest of my stuff was shipped out. I listened to it on a loop; hearing those songs again is like snuggling up in a warm blanket.)
