Did anyone watch the new movie "Invincible" this week? It had a lot of stuff in it that also was in the Eyeshield manga--just off the top of my head there was open tryouts for a pro team (Eagles in the movie, like the Armadillos in ES) central to the story, and they later talked about the trick where you look at the coloration of an opponent's fingers to judge their movement. There was even lots of talk of 40-yard dash times (lead character in the movie had a 4.5).

When I came home after the movie I read up on it on Wikipedia, which said that though the movie was based on Vince Papale's life, it ended up being heavily fictionalized. I wonder if the screenwriter had read Eyeshield? It's doubtful, I know.

I'll bet the mangaka watches "Invincible" sometime, though.
