INTRO: INVINCIBLE WITH GREG KINNEAR
Sound Bite: Greg Kinnear
I did I was a little reticent to do it I wasn’t sure how close I wanted to get to him or how far I wanted to keep him at bay I mean I saw the films and certainly did a quick study on his legacy but he invited me to come up to Wisconsin and what would be his last training camp as an NFL coach we think and I was I took I had to do it of course and it was so cool, I was so glad I did and I really came to have a lot of respect for him you know on a personal level as family guy and also a coach. You know if he hadn’t have been a coach this guy was driven like very few people I have ever met and his ability to instill that kind of enthusiasm with people around him and his players is incredible. He just has such love for those guys and of course he gets a little worked up about that occasionally. We know the wrap on Dick, the tears and all of that but the truth is you know you hold a forty-five minute press conference and you choke up for thirty seconds that’s what there showing around the country that night. So he’s not that guy most of the time, most of the time he’s just very intense and very focused and took a real shot with this kind of open tryout which was kind of a hail mary pass and found Vince Papale.

You know not really, I know Mark, I knew him before but I’d never worked with him. He’s a really talented actor and I thought he did a really good job finding Vince Papale, I mean the truth is there stories are very similar parallels I mean there both two guys where in way over their heads when they were starting this journey together and yet pretty far into there lives. And the truth is you know it wasn’t Dick and Vince that turned the team around, it wasn’t one thing it was the whole time, it was the whole team, there were a lot of guys and people responsible for that. But there is a relationship there that still exists today that is interesting and there is a connection between those guys and I think a mutual respect over kind of how each person faced big odds coming in and managed to solve the puzzle on the way out.
