West Virginia, on my mind
so as a disclaimer, i love sports movies. i'm not sure why, but a good sports movie gets me everytime. i'm not saying i don't love a good romantic comedy, but when i really want to indulge and need a crying night i turn on a rise from the ashes sports saga...
tonight i watched We Are Marshall. it is the story of the 1970 Marshall University Football team that died in a plane crash. needless to say, it's heartbreaking, but i found its portrayal of ptsd, community grief, and hope compelling. it is a true story and i loved it.
there we go. i'm a sappy sports gal. it's just reality. we can't do anything about it.
the movie made me want to visit west virginia. i forget that west virginia is called the playground of the southeast.
i hope someday i get to revel in this southern beauty.
