Have you ever seen a soccer movie?

Well, 2 of the last handful of films I’ve seen were.  The Damned United and Rudy y Cursi.  Both pretty good I thought, except for one thing- little to no actual game being played.  For instance, build up and build up to such n such game, walk through the tunnel, cut to score and locker room(!).  Maybe I’m just a sports movie purist, but can a guy get a little PT?

Is this just for soccer movies?  I think every other sport movie I’ve seen has a substantial amount of said sport being played in it, maybe to add drama, violence, perhaps added suspense and tension between old foes.  Maybe its just tough to film a soccer scene, the field is pretty huge after all.  In any case, if I don’t see some playing next time, I’m gonna be mildly upset.

In other futból news, what the what happened with Ireland v France.   Not cool Henry.  I support a re-match.
