Best Place for Teens on Autumn Friday Nights
High School Football Games
OK, quick-best high school football movie ever? Varsity Blues? Good football scenes, but dreadful everything else. All the Right Moves? Young Tom Cruise and an athletic Chris Penn (before he swallowed his brother, Sean, whole), but too much of a downer. No, the answer is obviously Remember the Titans, which is uplifting, exciting, well-acted and mostly true. The dramatic touch of Americana that is high school football is playing from late August to mid-November at stadiums all over town. Don't let your kids go to the mall on Friday nights; send them to the game, and help keep America strong. And even if they don't like football, they can see a live version of Bring It On.
