I don’t know about you, but it was so nice to see football season return this past weekend after an off-season of labor strife and doubt. For as much as America loves their football, they also love their football movies. In honor of the return of high school, college, and professional football, it seems fitting to churn out a new Top 10 list. Richard Roeper has his Top 5 list. I’ll double that list, plus two.
The front-runner that emerged was a proposed stadium located on an area of land adjacent to the Nissan car plant. The 48,000 seater gound was labelled “the Wembley of the North”. The plans did not come to fruition. In 1992, Nissan launched an official objection, ultimately forcing Sunderland to abandon the idea. In 1995, Sunderland put forward a plan to build a stadium on the former site of Wearmouth Colliery. The area, on the north bank of the River Wear in the Sheepfolds district of Sunderland, was only a few hundred yards from Roker Park, and close to the centre of the city. On 13 November 1995, the Sunderland Chairman Bob Murray announced that the Tyne and Wear Development Corporation had approved plans for Sunderland to build a 34,000-seater stadium on the site.
For a smart casual look, you can opt for the Shark jumper with the white and navy neck band. It gives at once a modern, contemporary look. The knit is so perfect and well finished that one doesn’t feel the seams at all. Indulge in any activity that takes your fancy, whether it is lounging about at home, or else wandering outdoors in the woods, or stepping out for just a stroll by the stream. In fact, the jumper quality is so good that you won’t even feel the nip in the air, so go out and enjoy the fresh air. You can carry a Paul and Shark jacket for additional protection on especially cold, wintry days.
Now, this change of odds is purely a result of the bets that the bookie is receiving and the money the bookie has at risk. It is not at all related to the ‘real odds’ (whatever they are) of the outcome of the event. The bookie is merely shortening the odds to protect himself (because he is taking too many bets at long odds which would be painful for him to lose), or lengthening the odds on other horses to balance off the shorter priced horses by moving the betting away from the favourite, again to protect himself or herself.
Many football clubs organize these football trials from time to time since the country always wants talent in the form of specialized football players. You just need a break and also lots of potential so that you can enter the professional club. However, it is not that easy as it seems. You must have the guts, will and enthusiasm to take up the job. Regular practice and lots of devotion and time is needed to draw a path to glory. You must be serious otherwise be ready for the repercussions which it will offer.
ITS BEST LESSON: FOOTBALL BONDS AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY– Kind of like other movies on this list that share themes, this lesson could have gone to Friday Night Lights and Remember the Titans too, but fits here just as well. When tragedy strikes the small tight-knit college community, it’s the courage to continue the football program, despite being outmatched by their superior opponents, that best honors those that were lost.
The 2008 Super Bowl will be the event of the century and the ring is the most sought after in a long time. The teams that want it are powerful reminders of the fact that, in the NFL, big money contracts may distract for a time but the driving force behind this game is the desire to be the best and having the ring to prove it.
