"First viewing - July 22nd My friend let me borrow this a while back, but until today I haven't been either in the mood for it or had enough time to sit down with it. I'm not a big sports guy in general, so initially I didn't have much enthusiasm for checking this out beyond its reputation. Fortunately a love of sports is not at all required to enjoy the documentary, as it more explores the ups and downs of chasing your dreams with some very realistic depictions of lower-class African Americans "
