@ProfPJohnson Alas, even with Chicago-style ``friends and family and deceased''-style voting, HIAP lost to ``Above the Rim'' in round of 32. Sympathy vote for Tupac!!!
Can a No 13 upset a No 4? Do you believe in David vs Goliath? Underdogs rising up, speaking for the oppressed, the voiceless? It's up to you, dear voters. Heaven Is a Playground over "Above the Rim"! Vote now, often! Chicago-style! #marchmoviemadness
"HIAP" tidbits: Hakeem Olajuwon does cameo while still Akeem Olajuwon. Also Kendall Gill!! ( he left when Bo Kimble arrived--not happy). Kimble shoots right handed, not lefty for pal Hank Gathers. Sweeney tries to dunk while playing w Rick T, fails. #MarchMovieMadness
So get out there and vote for "Heaven Is a Playground," w DBSweeney and Bo Kimble (great handle) and Mike Warren (not wearing a rug for first time since "Hill Street Blues"! Me,I play a bartender!!!! No lines but believable! 🕺🏻🍻🍸🏀#MarchMovieMadness
