If I don't win, hopefully I can find a friends house to watch it at. I don't have PPV capabilities due to only having basic cable (no box). Phone Post

Wait a minute here. Just because some of us don't have a start date here during that time doesn't mean we weren't fans before our member since date.

Right, and no one should have watched the Ali movie if they were too young to see him fight live. Fuck off.

And, ttt, this is an awesome opportunity for someone. Hope a UG'er wins. Phone Post

The reason this is on PPV I believe is because they didn't want to sell the story out to marketing $'s, but they had to pay for the production of the movie somehow.

It would be great for ESPN to buy it as one of their Real Sports movies like they did Kyle Maynard's movie that would get the story to a very large diverse group of viewers.

TTT in any way - I truly wish that Evan knew the impact he has had on thousands of people he didn't even know.
