    Re: best sports movie of all time?

    <P align=left><FONT size=4><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Here is my favorite scene in a sports movie. It is from Friday Night Lights with coach Gaines addressing the teamat half time on the topic of being "perfect."</FONT> </FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT size=4><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">It gives me goose bumps everytime I see it. Let me share it with you.</FONT> </FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS"><U></U></FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS"><U>Coach Gaines</U>: Well it's real simple: You got two more quarters and that's it.</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Now most of you have been playin' this game for ten years. And you got two more quarters and after that most of you will never play this game again as long as you live. Now, ya'll have known me for awhile, and for a long time now you've been hearin' me talk about being perfect.</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Well I want you to understand somethin'. To me, being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It's not about winning. It's about you and your relationship to yourself and your family and your friends.</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didn't let them down, because you told them the truth. And that truth is that you did everything that you could. There wasn't one more thing that you could've done.</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Can you live in that moment, as best you can, with clear eyes and love in your heart? With joy in your heart?</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">If you can do that gentlemen, then you're perfect.</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">I want you to take a moment. And I want you to look each other in the eyes. I want you to put each other in your hearts forever, because forever's about to happen here in just a few minutes.</FONT>
    <P align=left>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">I want you to close your eyes, and I want you to think about Boobie Miles, who is your brother. And he would die to be out there on that field with you tonight. And I want you to put that in your hearts.</FONT>
    <P align=left><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Boys, my heart is full. My heart's full.</FONT>

    Thy kingdom come.
    Thy will be done,
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    As we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    But deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom,
    and the power,
    and the glory,
    for ever and ever.
    Amen!" </FONT>

      Love it Jomo.....that movie was on my list a page or so ago. LOVE IT.
      The show took SO MUCH of that feeling with it from the movie, which is why it ran as long as it did despite the networks not wanting to carry it. the fan base was tooupset to throw out the window
