If you need something inspiring to watch

Yesterday we had a snow-day and after many sessions of terribly heavy snow removal (on the Professor's behalf) we decided to watch a movie. Although we have every bell and whistle ever invented for t.v. viewing, we could not find anything that appealed to us. Flipping through the documentary section we came across
a "Rotten Tomatoes" highly rated film. I have no idea why I have never heard of this before, possibly because it's about football. It did win an academy award!

""Set in the inner-city of Memphis, Undefeated chronicles the Manassas Tigers' 2009 football season, on and off-the-field, as they strive to win the first playoff game in the high school's 110-year history. A perennial whipping boy, in recent decades Manassas had gone so far as to sell their home games to the highest bidder, but that all changed in the spring of 2004 when Bill Courtney, a former high school football coach turned lumber salesman, volunteered to lend a hand." -- (C) Weinstein "

This is such an inspirational movie on so many levels. Everyone will love it. I will never forget Bill Courtney or this movie. If you get a chance to see it, I promise you will not be disappointed. Don't shy away because it's about football, it is, but so much more. Something to think about.

  1. The captain and I love football movies; we will be sure to watch this...thanks for sharing! By the way, do you have Apple TV? We have it here in the condo and I like it so much we are buying it once we're home. The only downside is we have U.S. Netflix here and the choice is so huge, I'm sure I will be disappointed at the Cdn selection.
