    Marky Mark will be playing the lead. If I was from Phily I don't know what I would think about that. Neat story though.

    Neat Story????
    This guy lived every die hard football fan's fantasy.
    He went from season ticket holder to playing for the team he loves. He only had 1 year of high school ball and played semi-pro for a local team before trying out for and making the Eagles at the age of 30. When he played, he played his balls off, had more heart than most of today's superstars, and became a local legend. Oh, and he just beat colon cancer to boot. Yeah, I guess that's kinda neat.

    On the Marky-Mark deal, i guess they could do worse. A boston guy trying to fake a philly accent probably won't go over so well

    According to Pro-Football-Reference.com he was in the league three years, but caught only 1 pass

    I wonder where/how they filmed any Vet scenes for the film.

    Thanks for the info, Billy.

    As for the Vet scenes, I'm sure that is chalked up to the wonders of computers.

    That 1 pass stat is a bit misleading. He spent his 3 years on special teams as a gunner.

    I hope this is as good as the movie RUDY. Mark Wallburg is a pretty good actor, I think he has moved on from his Marky Mark days.

    And thats about what its worth.
