Football, Family, & Fun!

by | Sep 2, 2011 | Family, TV Show

It doesn’t matter if your favorite is high school, college ball, or the good ol’ NFL. Whether you’ve been salivating over the upcoming season waiting for your favorite teams or you’re cross-eyed from reviewing your fantasy draft lineup, take a break this Saturday night to catch a different kind of play.

Make plans with the whole family this Saturday night to enjoy the movie “Game Time: Tackling the Past” on NBC at 8/7 central.

At the brink of ultimate fame and glory, pro football star Jake Walker’s life and career is interrupted when a family emergency recalls him to a hometown and family that he has spent fifteen years avoiding. As he struggles with the hurt and misunderstanding of the past, he receives the crushing news that he has been cut from the team. With his life, career, and future over, Jake must unwillingly start over and reconnect with himself, his family, and his community.

After watching the other Family Movie Night productions sponsored by Walmart and P&G, we know this will be a down-to-earth, uplifting movie designed to touch our emotions and leave us thinking about the direction we follow in our own lives. These movies are designed to get families talking. An extra added bonus is you don’t need to grab for the remote to silence inappropriate commercials in between.

What I expect from this movie can be summed up in this one quote from the trailer; “It’s not about how talented you are, it’s about how you use the gifts you’re given.”

How you use the gifts you’ve been given.

Kick back with the family this Saturday night and get ready for some football.
