    Just got back from seeing Glory Road

    This was a great movie if you follow college basketball.

    I'm a UK fan, and I thought it was well done. I know people complained about the way Adolph Rupp was portrayed, but it was an overall good movie.

    A word of warning, the movie is PG, but there are plenty of references to the "N-word". It's more of in an educational sense, but in case there are some little ones, now you know.

    Overall-

    I don't know why, but it's getting big audiences in El Paso.

    Bruckheimer right? Usually that equals over the top junk. I wouldn't be surprised if they acted like all was right in the world between whites and blacks because of one basketball game.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Bottom line: Rupp was a small-minded bigot. And he tried, long after the '66 championship, to degrade Haskins and the rest of the UTEP team.

    I saw the movie Saturday and thought it was well done. A bit over the top, but very well done.

    My son enjoyed it to and I spend time with him on the message of the movie.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Jerry Brukenheimer is to Hollywood what Palmer Chocolate is to Easter.

    I've seen UK lose enough this season. I think I'll pass on this one.

    Some of the game scenes were filmed at Chalmette High School.
