One of the few 'girlie-girl' cliches you could accuse me of exhibiting is an aversion to organized sports ... except when it comes to the movies. I couldn't tell you who won last year's Superbowl, but I've seen just about every football movie from North Dallas Forty
to Rudy, and the same could be said for most of the major sports: baseball, basketball, hockey, you name it. I may not follow sports in the real world, but I will always watch a sports movie, and that habit can be traced back to Youngblood
, a film near and dear to me for no other reason than it filmed just a few blocks from where I grew up. So if you haven't seen it, you're in luck, because the 80's hockey classic is now available at SlashControl as one of their free movies.
The 1986 film centered on a farm boy named Dean Youngblood
