OK, This thread is for everyone who loves football.....(OK, we will even let soccer come in).....regardless of if it is Pee Wee, Pop Warner, Jr High, High School, College, NFL, European NFL, Canadian, Australian Rules, Arena, or Flag.....as a Southerner I love it all.....forgive me Claes, as you already know Star Trek and Football are passions for me.....

For those who may not quite understand "American Football", I certainly understand, and respectfully recommend watching "Remember the Titans", a movie that may help explain a bit.....BTW, it is a true story (unusual for Hollyweird).....

Now, at the moment I switch between Arkansas/South Carolina and UCLA/Cal.....Florida is the winner of the SEC East.....USC is likely to move up from #9 but hopefully not much.....

Just some thoughts.....what do you think?

Re: Football!

Watched the last of the LSU/ Tenn game. That was a good game; lot's of turnovers.

Why do we have so many baseball movies, but so very few football movies? I'm in the South, and you know how we feel about High School Football!! I enjoyed The Replacements too, though. OK, maybe The Longest Yard. Any more? WAIT!! The greatest football movie :Waterboy.

:topic: I smell a poll. Greatest football and baseball movie (Bull Durham, Major League, Field of Dreams, The Natural). I vote for Major League, but Bull Durham has so many quotable scenes. The scene where Crash is giving the "Sports phrases" to the young catcher is classic.

Re: Football!

Bradm,

I agree......

I have seen both versions of The Longest Yard and think the newer version (for a change) is better.....

And just re-watched Remember the Titans and having seen the expanded version, and chatted with the center from that specific team.....and after seeing Friday Night Lights and similar movies.....

We need more - GOOD - movies about football.....more like (in my opinion) Remember the Titans which has both the guy aspect of great football, and the "chick flick" aspect of relationships.....

Opinions?

I should mention that in fact it was a great game.....

Though it had little actual influenece in the SEC West.....Florida will be in Atlanta, even if they do not go to South Carolina.....but now the SEC West is between Arkansas and LSU.........................

Re: Football!

No mention of Rudy!?!

My son goes to Univ. of Texas. Hook-em!

I've become more and more of a fan of college football and much less a fan of overpaid expensive pro-football. It's fun when there is a 'story' like the Manning brothers. And I still hope my Browns have a season to get excited about soon.

We happen to be watching MLS playoffs right now rather than NFL. My guess is most folks don't even know it's the playoffs! We tend to be a soccer family with our boys (and myself) still actively playing.

Re: Football!

I'm not sure which one I would pick on any given day: College or High School football. That is some great entertainment.

Although I sure would like to see college football rankings standardized, and a basketball-type playoff system.

I know money drives everything... but could we please have just one normal bowl name, without it being a paid endorsement?

Oh, I forget Any Given Sunday. That was pretty entertaining.

Re: Football!

IMO, Remember the Titans is not a great football movie - it is a great movie that happens to be about football.

Re: Football!

I was at the UT/LSU game Sat. and it is amazing how quiet 100,000 people can get in under a minute and a half.

Are you guys watching FNL the Series on TV? It is not as good as the movie and neither will ever be as good as the book but it's okay.

Don't let USC forget that the Irish will be visiting this month...:argue:

Re: Football!

There is a movie currently playing in Lower Alabama (the OTHER LA ;) ) called Facing the Giants, and my sister and nephew swear that it is absolutely a great movie. There are no professional actors in it, but they tell me it is a definite "must-see" for any football fan. (No, I haven't seen it yet)

I haven't seen it, but it appears to be a religious movie, and football is incidental. A sampling of reviews
