    Chicocheese, I've noticed that although I had my DVR set for Part 1 & 2 to air at 9:00 & 10:00 pm est. on Jan. 2nd, as per the program guide which I mentioned above, the programming schedule has now changed and reset my DVR to air at 4:00 & 5:00 pm est. TODAY instead for the two part showings :confused: "According" to the upcoming guide, Parts 1 & 2 are supposed to air for the last time at 5:30 & 6:30 pm est. on Jan. 4th.

    If you had already set your DVR, too, then I would assume it would automatically reset to those times as mine did. Anyway, I just thought I would give you a heads up, man! Happy New Year!:)

    I finally watched and recorded it all this morning. I agree that the main 1hr programs were mostly things that I had seen in previous shows. In fact, when it first started I thought that this was something that I already had recorded years ago. Parts 1 & 2 of the 1/2hr "Backstory" episodes were interviews with Starr, Kramer, Davis, Lombardi's son, and Steve Mariucci. I'm not sure that there was anything new in all of this, except I gained a greater sense of how left out his son Vincent felt. You can tell that there is still a lot of pain there because he had a HOF coach for a dad, but never really a dad.

    One thing I never knew-- Lionel Aldridge ask permission from Vince to marry a white lady...He didnt want to be blackballed

    There was another black player in that time, that married a white lady..That player never played for the NFL again because they blackballed him, according to Mrs Aldridge

    I just watched part 1 and 2. A great documentary and quite a story. It's amazing when life brings along real people who are so exceptional they almost seems like fiction. It almost made me want to be a Packers fan. But not quite. :)

    Have they done one on Bill Walsh yet?

    This.

    He missed out on a lot, for sure. The kind of success his dad had, definitely had to come with a price.

    Did anybody else notice the way his son blinked? It's like he was squinting or would tighten his eyes when he blinked sometimes.
    What was up with that?

    In tribute, I was walking around the house today in a white T-shirt and sweat pants pulled up above my navel.

    We didn't watch it until tonight. After the game my wife wanted to watch 24. I said, "Not until we have a Packers pick me up." We watched both parts. I could almost hear the, "Grab, grab, grab!" during that last drive.

    If it's the one I'm thinking about it's a great documentary but terribly sad at the end. You'll see what I mean if you haven't watched it.
