It's football mania here in Washington. My mom, sister, and five year old son are hardcore Seahawks fans. I'm a hardcore sports movie fan. Not the same thing at all. But there are moments in the games that are so huge or so agonizing, I grin ear to ear at the story quality of it all. When the ball sails past outstretched fingertips, I imagine the guy ten years from now replaying that one snapshot of his life. When Richard Sherman leaped into the air and changed impending heartache into insane joy, I wanted to shout, "That's a movie moment!" But that's lame. I know. I'm a movie geek, not a football girl. So here are a few of my very favorite football movies. Oh, and the smack talking Sherman lives off of is totally movie magic too. Love it!
How about you? Are you a football fan? If so, good luck enduring the next two weeks until the Superbowl. Maybe check out one of these movies to hold you over until then.
