Harvard Beats Yale 29-29

I'm feeling in a sports mood today after watching the U.S. National team trounce the Spaniards in the Confederation's Cup earlier today (take that men who steal our women with your accents and dance moves!).  Unfortunately, there aren't any documentaries about football/soccer coming out, so I'll just have to talk about the next best thing: American Football.

If you head on over to Apple, you'll notice a trailer for a film titled Harvard Beats Yale 29-29.  Now I know that score sounds like it would be a tie, but evidently rules were different back in the good ol' days of college football (1968).  The documentary blends archival footage with interviews from players who participated in this bizarre game.

I've heard a lot about this documentary, but never seen it released anywhere (despite a release date that occurred earlier this year).  None-the-less, this looks like a fun, forget the troubles of steroid driven sports type film (and in Spain's case, the pain of coming one game short of a record unbeaten streak).  Since it's theater release date has already passed, make sure to check NetFlix or your other video rental service to know when you can watch it at home.
