So I’m not really any sort of sports fan, but in honor of the superbowl I thought I should post something just a little bit festive, and it just so happens that one of the greatest movies of all time centers on he game of football.
For those of you who sadly aren’t familiar with this piece of cinematic genius from the mid ’90s, Little Giants is a feel-good movie about a group of “misfit” kids who, after not making their town’s elite pee-wee football team, form their own.
The real kicker? The two coaches are brothers! Hah.
I will, however, share with you 10 things I have learned from it:
1. Spike don’t play with girls
2. They put names on the back of jerseys so the guys at the morgue can identify the bodies
3. Best way to describe an unfortunate situation? “Somebody put a turd in the punch bowl”
4. Don’t be talkin’ ’bout Jake’s Momma
5. It’s super funny to to refer to getting kicked as “holding a pound of Aunt Betty’s nut butter”
6. Mr. Lorenzo, the school janitor, has very hairy ears
7. Even if they beat you 99 times of of 100, that still leaves one time
8. If you eat puffed Cheetos as opposed to crunchy, you’re a wimp
9. Football is 80% mental and 40% physical
10. (and probably the most important) You’ll never get anywhere in life treating your helmet like a lunchbox
