Ah, sweet memories

This is a video still from the new movie Invincible starring Mark Wahlberg as Vince Papale, an Eagles fan from South Philadelphia who ended up making the team after an open tryout in the 1970s.

Look how they brought the Vet back from the dead.


It’s enough to make you choke up. Well, maybe not.

Greg Kinear was cast as Dick Vermeil, which we think means that Greg knows how to cry on cue. (We tease. We love you Dick.)

Anyway, check out the trailer. It’s a familiar underdog story, but it looks fairly decent. And timing its release for August and preseason football is just good business on Disney’s part.

Eagles fans are going to dig that.
