More Thoughts on Sports Bigamy...
It happened again.
For the second week in a row after I did a post, I found a TV program that night covering the same material and I'm not talking election stuff. Last week after I posted on Rick Rescorla I found a program on the History Channel covering his life and 9/11. Last night after I posted on Joe Biden's sports bigamy (Giants-Eagles) I found that the movie "Invincible."
The movie is based on a true story of a Philadelphia bartender who made the Eagles team in the mid-1970s through an open try-out. Sort of a love fest for the old South Philly and the connection between that neighborhood and the city's sports teams. Loved every second of it, felt like I was a kid again. The climatic part of the movie is at the end when the main character is facing a make-or-break game against the Giants. One of the other characters wore Giants regalia to the game which sparked taunts, thrown objects, and fights in the stands. While the movie does play loose with some facts for cinematic effect, in real life the big breakout game was against the Giants which was perfect because as the movie makes clear there's nothing better in an Eagle fan's world than beating the Giants, except maybe the Cowboys
It just makes clear what a weasel Biden is... you really want a man of such low character a heartbeat away from the presidency?
