    A yearly tradition for me, before the first real game of the season is to watch the movie "Brian's Song" (the original, not the crap remake). Having just finished watching the great film, I wanted to post the movie in full here to see who else enjoyed the movie, and to give the opportunity to those who might not own it.

    Enjoy

    Because people have pretty much run out of ideas and are re-making anything and everything that is popular to make a buck?

    The remake is actually the only one I've seen. Didn't think it was bad. I need to see this original one, though.

    bacause nothing from the back in the day is good enough ,.. We ,.. although I do believe movies were better made back in the day ..

    I too prefer the original and did my yearly viewing a couple of weeks back

    Hey Benj , to you dealing with your issues there,.. Mine and everyone else and all of the he Brian Picollo types as well as those deemed not able to play let alone compete in some way.

    I sure do hope they nip this thang called cancer in the bud someday
