Great documentation of humble beginnings
16 March 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

For anyone that thinks the NFL was always huge, its a real eye opener to see that it was peanuts back in the 50s. These guys were part animal and part lover of the game, in various percentages. That is why they played, no other reason. The numerous interviews by the participants are probably the highlights, but the entire piece is well written and narrated. Its very interesting from start to finish. A must see for any true NFL fan.
