View Full Version : Field Trip Article

The Texans took a field trip to see the new release of THE LONGEST YARD yesterday and Carter Toole wrote a piece about it. I have to say that I am somewhat surprised at the article. It was one of the rare ones he writes that I finished and I actually had a laugh.

My favorite part..."The movie, which opens tomorrow, stars John McClain of the Houston Chronicle and also features a bunch of fringe Hollywood guys like Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and Burt Reynolds. The movie takes place at a fictious Texas prison, where the warden gives the inmates a chance to play football against the guards.

Sandler's performance as former NFL quarterback Paul Crewe somehow overshadowed McClain's latest 15 seconds of cinematic fame. The film also featured Nelly, Bill Goldberg and Michael Irvin as inmate players, and Steve Austin, Brian Bosworth and Bill Romanowski as guard players."

Good job, Carter.

It looks like my Bucs took a very similer trip as well, but other than the Bucs and Texans I haven't found another team that got a special screening.

For some reason when I read this article, it reminded me of the old days when Bum Phillips coached the Oilers.
