Seriously??? 8-o

It's the true story of Brian Piccolo (sp?), a backup RB for the Chicago Bears. It involves his friendships (with Gale Sayers especially) and his fight against cancer. He was in his mid-20s and he had a wife and three young daughters. It was originally made in the 70s, then someone (ESPN or ABC maybe?) did a remake a couple years back. One of the best movies I've ever seen, sports or otherwise. If you haven't seen it, you have to see it.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Aye ;-D Brian's Song was definitely worthy of at least the Final Four status, but I'm guessing most of the younger guys haven't seen it, which would be a shame.

Yeah it's just a sign of the times I guess. Here I am ticked off that it's not included and most of the guys here seem to have not even heard of it. Everyone should see that movie.

For true. They showed it to us in the 6th grade. If the school system isn't showing Brian's Song in the classroom anymore, I want my money back as a taxpayer.
