The Athletes in Film Blogathon continues!

Welcome to Day Two of the blogathon. I recognize the irony in having a blogathon dedicated to athletes on the same weekend that Muhammad Ali dies. What can I say? Just one of those things. I don't think he ever acted in anything, not that it matters. I've seen both the documentary When We Were Kings and the Will Smith biopic about his life. Both excellent films. Both worth seeing. Ali was a giant among men. His legacy will be remembered for generations to come.

You can check out the Day One entries over at Once Upon a Screen, and in case you missed my piece on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, it's right here, and this is Aurora's entry, the Buster Keaton movie College. If you've got an entry for today, put in the comments and I'll help spread the word about it, both here and on Twitter. On behalf of Aurora and myself, thanks for taking part!
