Completed: 2. Watch Brian’s Song
Some might call this movie the original “bro-mance” or ultimate “man” movie. And for that, I’m actually ashamed I hadn’t watched this movie sooner.
This based-on-a-true-story is about Chicago Bears players Gale Sayers (a black player) and Brian Piccolo (a white player). The movie tells the story of their relationship including their triumphs and their struggles.
It’s no secret that Brian Piccolo gets cancer and eventually succumbs to it. I don’t want to describe the entire movie. Plus, words won’t do it justice.
I’m a diehard Green Bay Packer fan, but that didn’t prevent me from rooting for the characters or enjoying the movie. It’s a special film.
