Retribution is a Star Wars film made by UGA wide receiver Christian Conley. I first heard of the film on Clay Travis' site Outkick the Coverage. The film features cameos from prominent figures in the Georgia program, including running back Todd Gurley and head coach Mark Richt. (In fact, Richt's cameo could be interpreted as a strange bit of commentary on how unaware college coaches are of their players' extracurriculars.) Perhaps, though, what the film sells best, beyond Star Wars and Georgia football, is the Classic City itself. Sanford Stadium is the perfect setting for action, the campus is idyllic, and the city streets made me long with nostalgia for sleepy autumn mornings in the breast of the south. Enjoy:
Meanwhile, I've written the following pieces for the ESPN TrueHoop Affiliate BallerBall over the last couple of months:
-"The Miami Heat Book Club"--July 4, 2014--Pat Riley hosts such learned men as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in his beach cabin in order to discuss textual adaptations of Hamlet.
-"D'Aulaires' Book of Memphis Mythologies: The Slaying of Bryant Reeves"--June 27, 2014--This story begins in a time before time and concludes with the demise of the ice giant, Bryant Reeves. Naturally, the setting is in Vancouver.
-"Living with Donald Sterling: A Journey from the Meadow to the Backroom and Back"--May 6,2014-This narrative is a Gothic take on the atrocities of Donald Sterling's NBA ownership.
-"The Plumlee Brothers, Hunting for Hidden Gold: Chapter One"--April 16, 2014--The NBA's number one sibling crime-fighting duo encounters strange men, possibly resembling LeBron James and the Bird Man, in the woods.
