As you know, we've started a football movie tournament in hopes that we can come up with the greatest football movie ever filmed. In week one, The Blind Side took down Air Bud: Golden Receiver, Brian's Song beat Necessary Roughness, Remember Thedestroyed Little and Rudy beat out Semi-Tough. All of those movies will move on to the second round.
This week we had another great set of first-round match ups, including a couple upsets. The Waterboy took down the favored Jerry Maguire, Friday Night Lights beat Leatherheads, my personal favorite, The Program narrowly beat out We Are Marshall (by 2 votes), Varsity Blues beat The Longest Yard (the1974 version... another upset) and The Replacements took down The Express.
Next week we'll finish our first round of the tournament before moving into the next round. Monday's match up will be between No. 10 Invincible VS No. 15 The Longest Yard (2005 version). Tuesday's match up is between No. 11 Radio and No. 14 Any Given Sunday. And finally, Wednesday's match up will put No. 12 North Dallas Forty and No. 13 Gridiron Gang in the ring together. Then on Thursday we'll start the second round of the tournament.
Make sure you vote every night so your movie has a chance at being the greatest football movie ever (unless your favorite football movie was Air Bud: Golden Receiver... that one's been eliminated already).
