I’m not exactly sure what constitutes something as a short film but what I can tell you is that this 9-minute Madden fumble is worthy of all the awards once the Oscars roll around around. Because that was awesome. Just 9 minutes of captivating entertainment. Couldn’t take my eyes off the screen once. And the coolest part of the video is that it was all based on a true story.
One of the sports that I’ll never really care enough about to learn the rules of is rugby. But I love watching rugby, and to be honest, I think I love watching rugby more because I don’t know the rules of it. I just get to make up the rules in my head as the game goes on and I just pretend like I know what I’m seeing. But anyway, this 9-minute-long Madden fumble looked exactly like a rugby match to me. That’s all that sport is, right? Just some barely-organized chaos while a bunch of giant dudes all pile up on each other, and then after a while someone gets some points out of it.
And as tough as this 9-minute sequence was for the Cardinals, it was still better than watching the first half of that Eagles game last night.
