Eagles Fans Remember ‘The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenomenon’
Did you ever hear about the garbageman who made the Philadelphia Eagles roster and won them the last game of the season? No, not Vince Papale. He was a bartender and that was a true story. This was the very fictional story of Barney Gorman.
Gorman, portrayed by actor Tony Danza, plays a field-goal kicker for the Eagles and gives one of the most inspiring speeches ever made in the history of cinema, maybe in the history of sports. Seriously, this speech could be translated and used in real-life situations. If you’ve never seen the movie, check it out.
