The end of my book is very sad, almost tragic in the eyes of a true sports fan. I did not enjoy the ending Odessa-Permian loses the final game. When you read the book it's like you are along for the ride. You are there through the journey of the blood, sweat, and tears. It starts with the dreadful two-days, fighting through the losses, and sticking together as a team. To go through all of that and come up short of the goal really hits one hard. I know when I watched the movie I cried the first time I saw it. That is the only movie I have ever cried in. I have never cried reading a book, however.


  1. Do you know of any other stories that end like this?

  2. I liked books that do that to you. It feels like you're there witnessing it all. Why do you think the movie made you cry but not the book? Was it because you knew what was going to happen?
