One of the most successful and also one of the best. James Caan and Billy Dee in their prime in a serious tear jerker. You have to admire a football movie that you could watch with a date and not have to pay for!

"God, how he lived!" Um, before he stopped at that toll booth...

This reminds of a baseball film called The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings starring Billy Dee and James Earl Jones (among some other notables like Richard Pryor). Fun movie, but really cool to me as a Star Wars geek: early on, we witness Lando Calrissian pitching to Darth Vader, and The Empire Strikes Out.
