The Will Remember Andy Strong

I don't know any sports fan who doesn't love the movie
Remember the Titans

This movie is the poster child for my saying "It's More Than Just a Game" The film has an interwoven complex plot consisting of racism, friendship, brotherhood, purpose, and tragedy is stitched together within the tapestry of a football season/game. That perfect season on the field made them and other people better off the field. That's why They did Remember the Titans.

This year on Sunday's our team is called Andy Strong.

For some reason (mostly because I'm weird), this season/team reminds me of the Movie Remember the Titans

Top Ten Reasons Andy Strong Reminds Me of the Movie Remember the Titans

10. In Remember the Titans two schools merged. Andy Strong is a Choice Parts Old School Merger.

9. In Remember the Titans Coach Boone took Hall of Fame level Coach Yoast job. On Andy Strong Ricky took Rosenmiller job, and Rosenmiller is now the assistant head coach

8. Andy Strong is currently undefeated (Titans no losses), but we are far from perfect both on and off the field. There is a lot of softball to go, but maybe like the team in the movie we can become better men with the good we do.

P.S I'm not afraid to talk about trying to win every game. Losses happen and winning in the playoffs is what counts, but along the way I want to win. Everyone does.

7.  To go Undefeated in the Titans, had to defeated the best coach Ed Henry (the Bill Bellichek of his time), To remain undefeated Andy Strong has to beat West who has two of the best softball coaches of all time - Dio and John

The Force is Strong with West

Don't let their Star Wars day (Awesome) at park fool you. These guys have won more championships than anyone I know. The are formidable, every Warrior need a worthy foe and every softball league needs a rivalry.

6. Haydeen Pantiere was in Remember the Titans as a little kid,
Your Son is getting beat like he stole something

and went on to grow up and become a known actress.
Save the Cheerleader Save the World

Alexandra and Caley are part of Andy Strong

What's Gonna Work Team Work 

One day they will grow up as well (hopefully act better than Haydeen), but not up to be a cheerleader I hope.

5. I love the Strong Side Scene in Remember the Titans... the use of the word Strong reminds me of Andy Strong

Love that scene: "Let's Play Fellas!!!!!!!!!! Left Side!!!!!!!! Strong Side!!!!!!" .. corny nerd heaven

4. Remember the Titans had leadership from their players, coaches can only do so much. Andy Strong has leadership from Jrod, Mike Trenk, Richie Collado, and more. Like Remember the Titans, our players may not get along perfectly, but in the end they want a Victory.

3. Fun - Coach Boone was a dictator. Ricky is a dictator "FUN"

2. Controversy - Remember the Titans was the 1st racially integrated team and had to deal with serious issues. Andy Strong is full of controversies everywhere starting at the top and going all the way down. We have to deal with it
Beware the Dark Side Insider - There is Still good in 

1.In Remember the Titans the team dedicated the Championship game to their injured teammate Gary Bertier.

Sunday May 21st, is league wide Cancer Awareness Day for the Big Apple League

West and Andy Strong are asking all league participants to wear something pink or blue and to make a team donation/contribution to Andy Santana and his fight against cancer. Please post this 

The WESTLANDERS are wearing pink t-shirts with Team Andy on them

 and Andy Strong will be wearing their jersey's (finally) that day.  Both teams will be collecting funds prior to the game. Please contact me, Dio, or John Sheppard for more information.

It is recommended that a player(s) from each team should be present at the field prior to the game to show unity, support, and love for our friend

Win or Lose  They Will Remember Andy Strong
