Such A Good Movie--Have You Seen 23 Blast Yet? Review/Giveaway! Ends 2/05/14! #23Blast

Now, I'll be honest-I've never been a huge fan of sports movies, but occasionally I will find one that I like. 23 Blast is actually the first sports movie that I REALLY liked. It was just that good. And, my husband is a HUGE football fan, so I just knew he would enjoy it as well.
(You can win a copy too, but I will get to that toward the end of this post).



Here's a little bit about the movie:
Rated PG-13 (brief drinking of alcohol on school property)  / 1h 42m

As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.

My Thoughts
I watched this movie by myself the first time. I did not want to leave the room. I was drawn into the story. It's a true one, in fact. It was a very inspiring movie. Just because someone like Travis Freeman lost his sight, he never gave up. He didn't let his loss of sight destroy his dreams.
I'm glad that my husband finally watched the movie as well. He said, "Wow. That movie was seriously good, but sad. I plan on watching that again."

If you haven't watched this movie yet, you might need a box of tissues. It has it's really sad parts, but there's a nice mix of humor too. It's heartwarming and overall a great movie to watch with a wonderful message for its viewers.
