Walt Disney Comes to Oakland
These days you see Hollywood remaking movies such as 'The Longest Yard" and "Bad News Bears". Now there's another movie re-make coming to the big screen and this time the story changes with kind of the same meaning to the movie. Walt Disney has decided to remake the film "Cool Runnings". This time, it won't take place in Jamaica. It will take place in Oakland of all places.
The story is about a coach named Dave Wannstedt who is hired as Pitt's new head coach after Walt Harris leaves. The team is built around a West Coast offense, but Wannstedt wants to make them into a power running team. The team doesn't believe they can do it. It's up to the coach to make them believe they can. There are some bumps in the road in the beginning, but there is some excitement towards the end as it sets the tone for the program in the upcoming years.
The movie is set to come up around the next Blue-Gold game and Pitt fans who attend the game will be able to watch the movie as well as the game. Ticket prices may go up for the game just for the cost of the movie. If you bring your Giant Eagle Advantage card, you will be entitled to free popcorn with a purchase of an overpriced meal at Heinz Field.
