Once In a Lifetime

Quick programming note: On Wednesday, September 20th, at 8pm, ESPN2 is going to broadcast the documentary Once In a Lifetime. It's about the rise and fall of the Cosmos during the 1970's. I haven't seen it but I understand it's not a bunch of X' s & O's crapola. This film focuses on the off-field insanity that surrounded one of the world's most popular soccer teams in New York during one of the more decadent decades. Lots of stuff about their partying at Studio 54 and the infighting among management. I'm looking forward to it.

Before seeing this announcement, I had been lobbying the Green Mountain Film Festival for them to show the movie during the 2007 festival. It sounded like they were strongly considering it. However, I'm guessing this broadcast of the film will remove it from consideration.

By the way, for those that didn't see the comment someone left regarding the film festival, it will run this year from March 16th to 25th. Now I have to come up with a new film to lobby for.

By the way, the film festival even has it's own wiki now. It's all grown up!

Here's the trailer:

Oh, and on a related note, here's the Week 23 MLS Goal Compilation video from Climbing the Ladder.
