Football Movies: Draft Day (2014)
Sports don't need to be Algebra II.
Moneyball is my favorite baseball movie. That’s probably because I can’t relate to throwing a perfect game or being stuck in the minors or playing major league baseball with a bunch of angels in the outfield. But thanks to fantasy sports and MLB: The Show and Baseball Twitter and even the rise of sports gambling, I sure as hell think I could be a GM.
Yeah, I’ve read Moneyball. I can use a Baseball Savant page. I’ve run trades through Baseball Trade Values. Sure, I’ve never been drafted or hit for the cycle or picked up the save, but Moneyball makes me feel like I can at least be Billy Beane.
Draft Day is Moneyball‘s scrappy cousin. It’s the football Scrappy-Doo to baseball’s Scooby-Doo.
