Dang - I can't spell "prairie"... :(

Also, I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' HawkeyeLonewolf - I should have used a closer crop.

That's my boy there - Mr. #10. He was the quarterback and had just handed it off to his guy. I was lucky that we had a nice sunny day for me to take pictures. Oh and his name is Jack :D

Really nice one Mich! The vignette is great! Gotta learn how to do that soon. Can't believe Jack is playing football already! I remember him as a babe. :) *sniff, sniff*

Must see movie.

You might want to check the spelling of "Prarie".

This is one of the few "looks like a cinema poster with good title" photos. 8

Closer on the boys, less words, though your "the story of..." truly seems like a subtitle, not a cheap way of explaining the image. Not bad overall

Not crazy about the added text. Love the image.

A good stab at a credible title (albeit more armchair matinee than cinema blockbuster) and your image matches that title well.

The technicals are pretty good and your edit is sympathetic to the subject but overall it isn't the most movie-poster-ish entry in the challenge.
