I just saw Glory Road this weekend. Great sports movie. However a joke in the movie hit me the wrong way. the team is on the bus driving to the next game. They are fiddling with the radio. A station comes on and is playing "Down In The Boondocks" by Billy Joe Royal. One of the players asks
"Is that Billy Joe Royal?" After getting an affirmative answer he continues "That cracker wouldn't know the poor side of town if it bit him!"
I nearly walked out. I know Billy Joe's story and that is totally far from the truth. In fact "Down In The Boondocks" is telling a part of his story. Thumbs down to Disney for allowing this slander to go on, especially since Billy Joe Royal is still alive.
