I have to go with Brian's song. Got a story behind that one. I have been a long time Chicago Bear Fan - way way back before Gayle Sayers etc. In 1971 I got my DD214 (that is a military discharge) from the Green Machine and was up in Canada with a buddy- that is where I met my wife of 49 years. Took her to a movie on our second date. Took her to see Brian's song. Bawled my eyes out! - Did not impress my wife to be! Smiley

It's a pretty touching and compelling story.  I'm with you on that one.

Rudy, Invincible and The Blindside I own and Remember The Titans is on Disney+ but if anyone sees any football movies please let us know. I'm getting tired of all The Hallmark movies.  Cheesy
