Rainy Days Mean Movie Days at Our House: An Anchor Bay DVD Prize Pack Giveaway

by Jennifer Sikora

I love movies. One any given rainy day, you will find me piled up on the couch with my kiddos and puppy surrounding me as we scour our shelves for a movie to watch. I have 5 long shelves of movies — so we always have something interesting to watch — and if I don’t have it, we hit up our local library and grab a few movies there. Ours has over 1,000 to choose from! Classics, new releases, and more — all free to rent. Entertainment and within my budget — need I say more?

A couple of weeks ago, I got to watch a new movie coming out TODAY on dvd. Touchback stars Brian Presley, Kurt Russell and NFL Hall of Famer Barry Sanders.

About the movie:

Former high school football star turned farmer and family man, Scott Murphy (Brian Presley) finds himself with a unique opportunity to revisit his glory days during his high school state championship game where he permanently injured his knee in a game-winning play.  Given a second shot at football fame, Scott seeks counsel from Coach Hand (Kurt Russell) his longtime mentor on and off the field, to help him decide whether to let his fate unfold, or follow a path that will change his future.

I am a big sucker for football movies. They are some of my favorites. This one is right there at the top with all the rest of them — and — with football season here, what better time to grab a new football movie than right now?
