Wesley suggested the great idea that we draft movies that best encapsulate our feelings on the 2010 football season. This one was a fun one for us...
We kept getting punked by people we shouldn't, like Craig was by Debo, (ya win some, ya lose some as Craig's dad says) then we found our footing after it going a bit too far and knocked Debo's ass out!
2M) Major League
After stinking it up for the first part of the season, the team rallies from behind by playing well together despite bad direction from upper management....and I felt like Harry Doyle after most games.
3W) 3 men and a baby
Mike, you beat me bad on my first pick great call with Major League..
I choose 3 men and a baby, cause I felt like we had Spaz,Tranq and Govs, with a baby (Rettig) trying to grow him, but have some serious issues on how that process should go.. oh and you can only guess who Spaz is in this movie.. lol
4m) The Mark Herzlich story: Stay up
Because we all know Mark's incredible journey and successful battle against cancer absolutely will be made in to a movie--and rightfully so. The only question is: who plays Herzy? Please don't say Shia LeBouf.....
5W) Necessary Roughness
Called the old dog back to the game etc
6M) Grumpy Old Men
I will go with "Grumpy old men". Both because of our coaches and how our fans felt most of the year.
7W) Groundhog day
Every Saturday I woke up expecting to see something completely different.. only to see the same offense., and luckily the same defense.. week in and week out.
8M) Matrix II
You are really expecting a lot out of it, there's just so much promise and there's nothing else out in the theaters so you're just expecting this movie to kill. The start is okay, and you're really ready to be wowed, but it just gets slow and is far from what you expected and you leave very disappointed. On it's own merit, it's actually a good movie, but you were just expecting a much better story than what was actually told so you come away with a taste in your mouth of what could have (should have) been.
9W) Fight Club
It was a hallucinogenic season.. is that even a word.. we started the season beating ourselves up.. and then got others into the ring..
10m) The Shawshank Redemption
Because I feel like we had to crawl through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness that I don't want to imagine to come out free and bowl eligible on the other side.
"....Sometimes it makes me sad, though... Jags being gone. I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss Matt Ryan."
