Having lived in Massillon, OH for 25 years and raised my kids there, I can say that this movie captures the way it REALLY is. Football is a way of life there! When I first moved there I was amazed that a high school stadium could pack in 15,000 to 20,000+ (in a town of 35,000 population) people every weekend for a high school football game. In 1976, when I went to purchase tickets for myself and my kids to attend, I was shocked to have to pay $4.00 each for tickets. I never had to pay that much for my college football games. Little did I know at that time the significance of the infamous Massillon-McKinley game. I have never ever seen anything like it anywhere else!!! Many think that they overdo it...and I suppose they do...but there is nothing like the spirit & excitement at one of the games. It's something that I will NEVER forget!!! If you love sports...especially football... this is a film you must see!
