Storyline

George Plimpton becomes quarterback for the Baltimore Colts on "Plimpton! The Great Quarterback Sneak," a one-hour documentary. The author, whose original donning of pads was recounted in his book, "Paper Lion," joins Colt veterans John Unitas, Tom Matte, and John Mackey for a in-depth look into professional football training camps. He also gets his chance to exact "revenge" on his old Detroit Lion friends - like Alex Karras - in a pre-season exhibition game. Written by John C. Witter <jcwitter@aol.com>

Trivia

The marching band seen twice near the end was composed of members of the Ann Arbor Huron High School and Ann Arbor Pioneer High School Marching bands. The band members received free Lions tee shirts which they can be seen wearing during the pre-game practice sequence. The two different band uniforms can be seen very briefly during the half time sequence. See more »
