I had a chance to take in When The Game Stands Tall over the weekend and I really liked it.  It’s no Remember The Titans that’s for sure, and I think it tried a little hard to mimic that film, but it’s really well done.  If I had to give it a grade in a classroom I’d award it a hearty B for very good.  I don’t know if I’d recommend you pay full price at night for it but it’s definitely worth a matinee viewing after a cute lunch somewhere.  What really stood tall for me was the hidden hottie Matthew Daddario.

Portland’s Arena Football AWESOMENESS!

IMG_0052Football and lesbians. What a great combination! I’ve found that the stereotype is either really true, or not true at all.  There doesn’t seem to be much gray area with regard to football. I do know that I can’t get my gay boyfriends to even consider football (or, really, any sport), yet I know there are as many differences between gay people as there are among people in general.  There are football loving and hating straight people, gay people, males, females, etc.  There is also a reason there are stereotypes…if there weren’t some truth to it, there wouldn’t be a stereotype.
