Wasting no time tonight folks.

As promised: the Number 4 best hockey movie ever.

This movie is also on my ALL-TIME list at number 14 right behind

"Follow that Bird"

Did I mention I am 23 years old and single... ouch

Anyway.... on To Mystery Alaska

A publicity stunt turns into the ultimate lopsided competition, when the world-famous New York Rangers face-off against the team from Mystery, Alaska, a hockey-loving town of only 633 people. Team Mystery is a rag-tag collection of eccentric locals including the town's sheriffs, its grocer, a deliveryman and a highschool senior who play for the love of the game, not fame or big money.
Its about a bunch of Jobbers who play a game every Saturday in this town in Alaska. When Hank Azaria's character writes a story about it in Sports Illustrated, someone from New York gets wind of it, and a great story is made.
Lots of very good hockey scences in the movie, and believe it or not, Russell Crowe is somewhat tolerable.
Plus if you hate the Rangers this movie is for you. However I would have loved to see this movie made with real NHL guys. Imagine Lemieux playing against some delivery guy. Or Jagr fending off a check from a postal worker and smoking 4 goals top shelf.
This movie only made 8 million dollars, which is horrible.
If it were about High school football, it would of made $181 million.
I hate High School football.
Anyway, another downer to this move is that Burt Reynolds is in it..... yea really the only bad thing.
This is so off topic, but I was searching for a Burt Reynolds video clip and came across this video on YouTube
This is truly one the funniest videos I have ever seen... Including Mark Summers (of Nickelodeon's Double Dare fame) and Burt Reynolds getting in a fight on the Tonight Show...

We usually wanna stay focused on hockey, but this was too good to pass up.

Tomorrow's movie
