"Aright, just who deflated the footballs anyway?":

“ALRIGHT, JUST WHO DEFLATED THE FOOTBALLS ANYWAY?”: As NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell continues with his investigation into the controversy as to what made the Indianapolis Colts fold like a cheap origami castle in a monsoon during the AFC Championship Playoff Game (How about being outcoached and outplayed, Rog?), all eyes are on Arizona-  not to detect illegal aliens (why should anything change this week?)  -but for the playing of this year’s annual NFL excuse for generating commercial advertising revenue. Let’s just hope that Madison Avenue will not embarrass itself any more than usual and that, if featured on godaddy.com ads this year, Danica Patrick might show off her alleged skills as a race car driver equipped with more than a thong and stripper pole.

Once again it is time for America’s favorite competitive game- no not that sorry excuse of homoerotic excess (outside of a stag film where can you see more concentrated hugging, butt slapping and feverish embracing?) called American football  -but the monthly Classic Film Images Quiz, this edition brought to you by SKITTLES, the favorite All-American breakfast candy of drunken tailgaters from coast to coast. In this edition we celebrate the0000FEBa pigskin tournament in all of its myriad cinematic incarnations from comedic to inspirational (though could anything come remotely close in inspiring women to pursue the celibate [certainly man-free] life than “Ray Rice, Private Elevator”?). The following twelve images are taken from a film which if not wholly about the great gridiron soap opera is prominently concerned with moving the ball past the line scrimmage and into a fat resigning bonus. (Not so coincidentally, the number twelve exactly corresponds with the point spread CSR has taken as the extent of a New England victory. No tanks necessary, Cubanos will do.) As usual, it is up to the heartiest of souls to examine and identify the film from which all twelve images originate, the first to do so correctly receiving that most coveted of Super Bowl day trophies (far fewer have been given out than that silly Vince Lombardi tchotchke), the CSR Culture Shock Award, redeemable for cash at Tower Records in all Boston locations or a cabinet post in the Obama administration (just call the Fed and ask for Vicki). Good luck.




About chandlerswainreviews

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.
