Have you been to the movies lately? Morgan & I just got back from seeing "When the Game Stands Tall".
Inspired by a true story, WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL tells the remarkable journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport.
We both loved the movie, and truth be told, (sshhhh!!!) we're not even football fans! I thought it was a great way to spend a couple of hours! I laughed, I cried, I sat on the edge of my seat, and most of all, I was inspired. It's a great family movie to see with your kids! My middle daughter is 11 years old, loves sports, and I think she'd have really enjoyed it... I'll have to grab it when it's out on DVD. Inspirational and "safe" moves are are few and far between nowadays unfortunately. I loved that the lesson (and the movie), is much more than meets the eye. It's not "just a game"... these kids aren't just out to "win at any cost". I don't want to ruin it for you, so i'll leave it at that, but it is a "must see" movie.
Here's a trailer to entice you...
2 thumbs up from me! If it's playing nearby, go and see it with your family or your friends, you'll enjoy it and walk away inspired and with a big smile on your face! :)
