The football film game

As we say farewell to 2008 and hello to 2009 I wanted to start off on a lighter note than some of my previous blog’s. Christmas is a not to far distant memory, and one thing I did get excited about was Christmas television, especially films. Last year was a disappointment, I hardly watched any television and as for the films, a re-run of the rather festive Die Hard movies was as good as it got for me. In my boredom, sat at home watching the box, I played a little game – what football players would make good actors, and what character or movie would they star in? You can take in to consideration anything, similarities between the football player and character in a movie, what movie story line could mimic a football player, or even what movie name really personifies the footballer. For example, a complimentary film could be ‘The Rock’ featuring John Terry, as for many people he is England’s best defender. Alternatively, and these are the ones that I really enjoy, you can rip them to pieces. For example, Cristiano Ronaldo in ‘Diving Miss Daisy’, Shawn Wright-Phillips in ‘Little Man’ or even Luiz Felipe Scolari, instead of Marlon Brando, playing Vito Corleone in the ‘Godfather’.

So if you have any other amusing suggestions feel free to add them.

Happy New Year to you all and I hope you all have a fantastic 2009.
