Great Show
20 October 2006 | by ghgreeneSee all my reviews

I only saw 2 episodes of this series and would love to buy them on DVD. The reunion episode was hilarious showing a bunch of middle age men showing up for a reunion and trying to re-live their glory days. I laughed so hard and it was all clean humor. Please ask that this get put on DVD. This episode was incredible!!

The guys re-played their biggest rivals game.

They stole mascots and played the same pranks I did as a teenager in my own high school. Clean but effective and inspiring.

One of the guys played Ned Ryerson on Groundhog day. He outdid himself in this show. I can't remember any more as it has been 13 years since I saw this show.
