Default Rudy

I just watched Rudy again last night, but this time with my 11 and 8 yr olds, still brings a tear to my.

What a great movie to sit down and watch with today's kid. No, not everyone is a winner, no, not everything is fair, but if you work hard, have heart you can perceiver.

I forgot just how good it really was.

That would be counterproductive.

Sad what happened to him:

"In 2011, Ruettiger was charged with securities fraud by the SEC, for participating in a pump-and-dump scheme. Settlement of the case required Ruettiger to pay $382,866 in fines, though he was not required to admit guilt."

Wow, it seems somewhere along the way he lost his will.

great movie but not quite accurate. late in the game the coaches wanted to put him in on offense but he refused saying he played on the defense. Notre Dame scored late on a running play not a long pass. also on the famous tackle Rudy was one of three players to reach the quarterback. here check out the "Rudy play" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z950ovP7N4
