comes out at midnight. To be completely honest, we're not sure what it's about; it seems to feature
in a highly prominent role, as well as the
Toronto Maple Leafs
. That latter part is awesome, because not enough movies over time have focused on the Maple Leafs. There are several films in cinematic history with a focal slant towards one sports organization. Here's a few examples by way of Clip Reel.

focused on the Celtics (and oddly, the Jazz).
Angels in the Outfield
For Love of the Game
is pretty Tigers centric.

The Sixth Man
= Washington Huskies.
= ND Football (duh).
has some ties to the St. Louis Cardinals.
