The Little Giants and Rudy‘s Fighting Irish Kick Off a Tourney of Movie Football Teams

Sad that the summer’s coming to an end? Then you’re forgetting the best part of fall: football season’s here! While preseason excitement picks up, take a moment to behold classic football movies, which offer a caliber of drama that even Brett Favre’s story has yet to achieve.
