Super Bowl XLV (2011) Profile: Aaron Rodgers And His Smart Choice

2011 Oscar Award Nominee For Best Picture “The Fighter” Movie Review

I am a sucker for sports movies, because sports movies almost always portray the scenario of an underdog challenger to the champion, or to the favorite, and the movie is almost always about how the challenger overcomes the overwhelming challenges and succeeds in outdoing the expectations, usually ending with the unexpected defeat of the favorite by the underdog. I can’t get enough of such movies, because, to me, that is what life is about; Working hard, believing in yourself, and surpassing expectations. And that is what sports is about, especially individual sports, but team sports as well.

“The Fighter” is based on a true story of an Irish boxer, Mickey Ward, and his brother who helped train him before he went pro.
