I've seen the movie Brian's Song.It was terrific.
30 March 2006 | by freestyler19320See all my reviews

I loved that movie so much that I saw it again as soon as possible.If you see the movie,it would be impossible not to like it.It was a movie about football,no.It was a great movie,yes.Trust me,if you haven't seen it yet,see it.It was such a great movie I asked my family if anyone else has another movie like that one.After watching it the second time,I wanted to watch it again.You don't know what you're missing.Sure,the life of Brian Piccolo was way better than any movie could ever be,but if you don't know his story a good way to start out is by watching this movie.Anybody can simply say sure,I know the story of Brian Picollo,but half of those people won't know what the heck you're talking about.And for the record,they won't know what they're talking about either.You can e-mail me if you have any questions about Brian Piccollo, Brian's Song, or any other football-related question and I will give you my honest-to-goodness opinion,or in case it's a question that needs a fact,i'll try my hardest to get it for you.
