Papale offers his recollections of the past and tells production anecdotes, like how nervous he was meeting Mark Wahlberg for the first time (he was just as nervous to meet Papale) and praises his portrayal. Gann touches upon the research he did and the story parallels to Rocky. But it is Papaleís natural charm and good humour that comes through the clearest on this track. He spends a lot of time reminiscing about his friends and how they are depicted in the movie. This movie was clearly near and dear to his heart and his passion for the game is very engaging.
Commentary 2: Director Ericson Core and editor Jerry Greenberg Rating:7.0/10 (1 vote) [graph]Login to vote or review

Core says that they didnít have to change much of South Philly to make it look like it did in the Ď70s. Although, they did have to digitally recreate Veteranís Stadium as it had been demolished a few years ago. This is a more technically oriented track as the director talks about how he shot the film while both men talk about the editing process. While this track covers the nuts and bolts of filmmaking it is done so in an accessible way.
