Holy smokes. I just saw this movie for the first time last night. A confession: That movie made me tear up almost throughout it. I had a date and finally had to just turn to her and say, "Okay, I'm going to choke up. There's nothing I can really do about it." The movie was very powerful.

I can't remember if it was/is included in the "Greatest Sports Movies" poll, but it should be. I plan to watch it again today.

Anyone else have comments on this movie?

P.S. Also, as an aside, Atlanta's "The Varsity" is included briefly in the movie.
