    Product: The 2006 Nokia Sugar Bowl Commemorative Edition DVD Mountaineers Prove to Georgia and the BCS That They Are One of the Best Atlanta GA. January 3 2006. What might have been the biggest upset in BCS history also may have proved to be the biggest win in West Virginia football history. Feeling like a team that had gotten no respect the Mountaineers jumped all over the SEC Champion Georgia Bulldogs and held on at the end to capture the 2006 Nokia Sugar Bowl Championship. Despite being champions of the Big East Conference with an overall 2005 record of 10-1 the Mountaineers were heavy underdogs entering the 72nd Nokia Sugar Bowl played for the first time ever outside of New Orleans. West Virginia used that as motivation to fuel an early 28-0 lead over the Bulldogs. Led by two sensational freshmen Quarterback Pat White and Running Back Steve Slaton the Mountaineers ran all over the nation`s fourth rated defense and helped accumulate 382 rushing yards. Georgia rallied and cut the West Virginia lead to 31-21 at halftime demonstrating a comeback was still possible. But the Mountaineers would not quit and despite Georgia cutting the lead to three held on with one of the most daring calls in bowl history. Hanging on to a three point lead with 1:38 left and facing fourth and six on the Georgia 48 yard-line West Virginia Head Coach Rich Rodriguez called for a fake punt that punter Phil Brady carried for 10-yards and a first down enabling the Mountaineers to run out the clock and win its first January bowl game since 1948.

    Holiday Inn (Special Edition) Reviews

    Holiday Inn (Special Edition)

    Two song and dance men leave showbusiness to open a Connecticut inn, but conflict arises when they fall for the same woman.In 1942, Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby teamed up at Der Bingle’s Paramount Pictures for Holiday Inn, a black-and-white musical that proves more entertaining than Crosby’s color semi-remake White Christmas in 1954. Astaire and Crosby play partner/rival song-and-dance men who compete for the hand of their performing partner, played by Virginia Dale. After Crosby loses, he moves to the Connecticut countryside where he creates a resort that is only open on holidays and puts on the shows with the help of Marjorie Reynolds. Dumped by Dale, Astaire makes a drunken arrival at the inn on New Year’s Eve and dances with Reynolds. He decides she’ll be his new partner, but doesn’t remember what she looks like, setting off a frenzied search at every subsequent show while the once-bitten Crosby does his best to steer him off track. The theme gives Irving Berlin an excuse to craft or recycle a number of holiday-themed songs, such as (in the former category) “Washington’s Birthday” or (in the latter) “Easter Parade.” The most famous of the new material, of course, is “White Christmas,” which became one of the bestselling songs of all time and the title song of Crosby’s 1954 film. Astaire and Crosby also team up for “I’ll Capture Her Heart,” which playfully contrasts the stars’ specialties, and Astaire’s “It’s So Easy to Dance with You” became one of the signature songs of his post-Ginger Rogers career. Astaire and Crosby teamed up again for Blue Skies in 1946. –David Horiuchi

    John Grisham’s The Rainmaker (Special Collector’s Edition)

    John Grisham’s The Rainmaker (Special Collector’s Edition)

    Francis Ford Coppola directs and scripts an exciting, star-packed adaptation of John Grisham’s novel about an idealistic young attorney who takes on the case of a lifetime. Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) plays Rudy Baylor, a rookie lawyer in over his head on a high-profile case. Opposing him: an army of seasoned legal sharks (led by Jon Voight). On Rudy’s side: Deck Shifflet (Danny DeVito), a feisty “paralawyer” who specializes in flunking the bar exam. Rudy’s chances are slim to none- until he uncovers a trail of corruption that might lead to the one thing that could win his case: the truth.When viewed from a cranky perspective, this by-the-book David vs. Goliath story doesn’t offer any surprises, and it’s a bit sad to watch director Francis Coppola (who also adapted John Grisham’s bestseller) squandering his once-glorious talent on such conventional Hollywood fare. In a more charitable light, however, there’s great pleasure to be found in Coppola’s intelligent, no-nonsense handling of a plot that’s every bit as involving as it is formulaic. Coppola also knows how to bring out the best in a stellar cast, and this is the movie (released in November 1997, just a few weeks before Good Will Hunting) that signaled Matt Damon’s arrival as a major-league star. Damon plays Rudy Baylor, a young rookie lawyer in Memphis (location of many Grisham stories) who takes on a powerful insurance company (led by a sharklike lawyer played by Jon Voight) by representing the family of a boy who was denied potentially life-saving treatment for leukemia. Rudy also comes to the rescue of an abused wife (Claire Danes) and learns the tricks of the legal trade from a seasoned paralegal (Danny DeVito), who sees Rudy as his ticket out of the sleazeball practice run by a shady lawyer (Mickey Rourke). There’s no mystery about where this plot is going, but Coppola takes us there in high style with a sharp script, and Damon strikes just the right note of naivete and strategic intelligence. When Goliath inevitably falls, this courtroom David wins fair and square. –Jeff Shannon When viewed from a cranky perspective, this by-the-book David vs. Goliath story doesn’t offer any surprises, and it’s a bit sad to watch director Francis Coppola (who also adapted John Grisham’s bestseller) squandering his once-glorious talent on such conventional Hollywood fare.
