The Heart Of The Game

Chad and I watched a great documentary last night – The Heart of the Game. It’s a basketball documentary that follows the Roosevelt High Girls Basketball team out here in Seattle. The coach was Chad’s Tax professor in college and one of Chad’s all time favorite teachers, so he was really excited about seeing the documentary and it is really great. Here’s the synopsis:

Attending predominatly white Roosevelt High because her mother thinks she’ll have better opportunities under the school’s successful coach, gifted black hoopster Darnellia Russell puts herself and her coach through the wringer. Shot in a suburban Seattle high school ovr a seven-year period, director Ward Serrill’s stirring documentary explores the complicated relationship between gender, race and organized sports.
