When I talk about my family, I’m not just thinking about my parents and my siblings. For Christmas, we had more than 80 of my family members gathered in California. For Easter, it was easily 150 people.
My favorite kind of movie is one about football. From Any Given Sunday to The Express, football movies show us, fans and athletes alike, the human quality behind the men who become legendary. And unlike the way sports celebrity plays out in the media, you walk away from these films understanding one man’s story and appreciate that, for better or worse, he aimed to be his best.
