    I watched "Any Given Sunday" the other night. It's about the only Oliver Stone movie I've ever enjoyed.

    Great scene with Cameron Diaz (Sharks owner) talking to Al Pacino (Sharks coach) after the fourth loss in-a-row. She goes off on how Tony's (Pacino) style of play is old and that the players have lost faith in him. Tony comes back with how that "style" built the franchise, etc. Tony defends staying with the old veteran QB instead of going with the young, black QB who obviously has more talent but doesn't know the playbook.

    Christina (Diaz) says at the end of the conversation "No intensity, no victory."

    She wasn't just talking about the team. She was talking about how losing no longer seemed to bother the coach. His lack of intensity transferred down to his team who also accepted losing.

    I know it's Hollywood but that hit home a bit.

    I think we should hire Al Pacino to be our head coach. His postgame press conference antics would make us forget about the winless seasons.

    All he has to do is call someone a kockaroach, or bring a child up and say "say hello to my little fren'" and morale instantly improves.

    Just a thought.

    Hmm, that's a great observation TJ. Fisher seems complacent with losing.

    That's a great movie. I don't know why some people hate on it. I loved it.

    Need to watch it again soon. Great observation.
