That said, there are two exceptions to the no football movie thing. And I've watched them numerous times and will watch them again. In fact, the other night, one of them was on TV back to back and I watched most of it the first time and all the second. Of course, I was doing other stuff, but it was still on and I did watch some of the good parts.
What movie, you ask? The Replacements with Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman. Yep, there's football, and some comedy, but it's also about getting and taking second chances, about overcoming, about discovering who you are and accepting yourself.
The scene below is one of my favorites.
Where am I going with this? Probably nowhere. It's just something I like and wanted to share.
Got a favorite football movie I should checkout? Tell me and let me know what's so special about it. :-)
