Marshall alums vote early and often for their fave
I did some journalistic snooping while visiting the Tribeca Film Festival (see post below) and discovered how and why "We Are Marshall" won the vote for favorite football flick - thus earning the right to be shown at the "drive-in" Saturday at the World Financial Center.
Turns out a site frequented by Marshall alumni caught wind of the contest and mounted a vast Internet conspiracy to vote early and often. Hence some of the nutty results, including a 93-7 blowout of "Rudy" in the final.
Too bad Notre Dame doesn't have an active alumni community.
(I'm old school, of course. I would have voted for "Brian's Song.")
I know it's a busy sports weekend, but I won't be blogging. I think the wife and kids have started to notice that I've been ignoring them.
See you Monday. Enjoy college boxing on SNY at 4:30 p.m. Wait . . . college boxing?
