Tico Romao, a fine "independent film scholar" who I follow on Twitter, tweeted out something this morning about the 1999 Oliver Stone football-themed flick Any Given Sunday. I decided to pull out the above little item, a promotional mug, for a promotional shot.
My response to the tweet....
I was sitting in a [Toronto] pub with friends one night when a gent came around and gave us yellow plastic promotional mugs. I still have it. Works well as a pencil holder.
Unfortunately the promotional gesture didn't get me to see the film. (Football. No thanks.)
I had mine for years. I don't know what happened to it. The movie was pretty good. While not a follower of sports, movies with thst setting can be engaging. Hoosiers, Rocky, Slap Shot...
I liked Hoosiers even though, for me, watching basketball is sleep-inducing.
Rocky and Slap Shot are great!
