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! :)

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.  :D

Hey, could be the opposite!  Maybe that's why she married you!  ;)

If it was my wife, the crying would be ok, but the taking her to a football movie thing would have been a deal breaker!  ;) ;D

I only saw this one once, in 1981, so I'm sure it is a relic of it's time.

Grambling's White Tiger

Stars Caitlyn Jenner as the QB.
