    yeah i still cant believe i spent 10 bucks to see it in theaters 2 months ago...i should've followed my gut instinct and waited, but i'll be damned if i was gonna let my girlfriend choose the movie we went to see...

    good documentary though...

    I thought it was great... very cool, interesting documentary. I had no idea just how popular the Cosmos were in the late 70s. And I loved the Americanized version of the penalty kick -- start 35 yards out and have 5 seconds to advance on the goal and fire a strike.

    This guy was the man. So prolific (his skills and talents were unbelievable) and the quintessential athlete everyone loved to hate. I would LOVE to find a replica Chinaglia Cosmos jersey.

    whole bunch of old cosmos jerseys...they can add numbers, though i dont know about names, but i'd assume they probably could by request...

    also a large selection of other teams throwbacks...

    Although I didn't spend the $$ to see it in the theater I did think it seemed awfully soon for it to move to TV.
    I thought it was great! A major flashback session!
    I was in my mid teens when Pele showed up, and like most, soccer was just not important to me. But I was/am such a big sports fan that I got into it when Pele joined. Then Giorgio, Cruyff, Ricky Davis(?), Alberto, Franz, etc joined. It was freakin' amazing! They really were rock stars!
    I watched the whole two hours with a smile and also realized how FAST 30 years has gone by!
    BTW: Did you get the impression there are still a lot of hard feelings about how it all blew up?? WOW!! Get over it!
