My favorite movie of the year...

has to be The Blind Side!

How many of you have already seen this movie? We don't go to the movies often, as we usually try to wait until they come out on video to save a few pennies. However, everyone kept raving about this movie, and the reviews and trailers that I saw beforehand lured me in. Additionally, the NFL fan that I am always causes me to be a sucker for a football flick.

Well, this is not your typical football flick. It's oh so much more than that. I was very impressed...not just with the movie...but with the story. I really don't want to ruin it for those of you that haven't seen it yet, but I will just say briefly that it's a true story about the sad beginning of the life of Michael Oher that ends with a family literally being the hands and feet of Jesus to this young man. Oher was a homeless African American teenage boy with little future until a rich, white family (Tuohy) takes him in. That's all I'm going to share for now. Trust me. See the movie. Pay the ridiculous movie theater prices. It's worth it. I repeat...see the movie!

Can't wait to hear what you think about it!
