OK, who stuck with it until the end?
Louis Nix Believes He Can Fly, A Short Film
I did. I was hoping for a faceplant.
Ha - me too.... just waiting for it hoping there would be a zoom in. Still, potentially Oscar worthy. Acting was superb.
It had this slow-motion Koyaanisqatsi-esq vibe to it. Once I was in the loop, I was mesmerized...
Why? Couldn't get through the loop starting at 2 minutes or so. Please watch the Akron video!
Boo this man. BOO HIM
MGoBlog, now with 100% more pissing on you.
(No, I couldn't get through it all either).
Brevity is the soul of wit.
It just makes you a lesser person.
For a big fella like that, getting two inches of air is pretty damn near flying.
I think that we've seen a triumph of the human spirit. You can indeed see an inch or two of air under that young man's feet. He is pushing the very limits of what we can call "jumping"...But I think he pulled it off. Maybe.
Half of me thinks this is hysterical, yet the other half is worried that this cat fell a few stories down. SO MANY EMOTIONS.
and still survive do you not? Anyways, I believe this particular cat did survive.
It's more dramatic
Somehow every movement is in perfect harmony with the music as if they were made for each other.
Hahaha, i had to laugh. especially when the choir chimes in.
nix tried to fly again (fully horizontal) with about 9 minutes left in the 4th quarter, during fitz' 22 yard run.
here is a reference - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAH4TH8T83E#t=4m10s
would love to see this attempt in the short film.
Ok, love watching but ya couldn't include the catch that happened in the next second?
HR: 708 SO: 1122
Um, not to be all baseball-nerdy or whatnot, but neither of those is accurate. The correct numbers would be HR: 714, SO 1330. What you have are his home run total in the American League and his strikeout total while with the Yankees.
Yeah, let's nobody forget that one awesome game he had with the Braves. Emphasis on one. But still...

But the stat is not really the issue here dude. I was trying to draw an inference that to hit a lot of HR's, you also have a lot of SO's...
Yeah, that's all on me. I understand the point you were making, and it was a good one, it's just that the baseball stat nerd in me cringed at the incorrect numbers. Sorry about that bud.
Some people actually CAN fly while playing football.
...that young man cannot fly. Fortunately, DF can sky.
Nice 1/2 inch vertical.
of a football game, that likely nobody actually noticed while it was happening?
That's the MGoBlog Difference!
It was too long but I definitely noticed it during the game. Replayed it a couple times. I'm sure there had to be others that saw it too.
Ace, you're better than that.
Ace, enjoying a little of the wacky tobacky tonight?
of the phrase "short film"????
Schofield looks pretty suave with his slow jam dance moves.
He didnt even fall
Whatever you do, don't quit your day job,
I concur. There was no payoff. Not one of the funnier things I have seen here.
says "I see what you did there...." In the fine tradition of Lois getting smacked in the mammary.
That was the greatest thing I've seen all day, and I just watched the US beat Mexico and clinch a World Cup berth. Man how El Tri has fallen...one might even say they have fallen to earth quicker than Mr Nix! What? One would not say that? Okay, I guess I'll stop drinking and go to bed now.
I absolutely love that you got paid to do this.
Nix does not need any more reasons to feel bad about himself this week. He's still a pretty dogone good football player! I'm feeling pretty lucky that he did not have the chance to splatter our QB all over the field once or twice on Saturday night!
You high as a kite, aren't you? Haha.
Also, I think you just killed Louis Nix's draft stock...
