Greatest Football Movie Of All Time Tourney Round 1: The Blind Side Vs Paper Lion

New, comments

The Waterboy routed Radio to become the last team in our first region to move on. So we move on to region two with the #1 seeded "The Blind Side" taking #8 seed "Paper Lion."

I'm sure you're all aware of "The Blind Side" at this point starring Sandra Bullock, who won an Oscar for her role. It tells the story of real life NFL player Michael Oher.

The Blindside's competitor is also based on a true story starring Alan Alda as sportswriter George Plimpton, who poses as a rookie quarterback for the Detroit Lions for a "Sports Illustrated" article. Now, this is a 1968 movie so there's a good chance many of of you haven't seen it. However, it is available on Netflix watch instantly. So if you've got that service, I recommend you check it out before voting.
