Good Sports: Family Sport

For NFL fans, the movie Draft Day is a must-watch, even if it portrays the lowly Cleveland Browns. Starring Kevin Costner as a general manager trying to revive the fortunes of the Browns, the movie was co-written by Scott Rothman, a Dolphins fan, and Rajiv Joseph, a long-suffering Browns fan.

The Cleveland-born Joseph, 39, whose mother is French-German and father is Indian, is a Pulitzer-nominated playwright who’s making his debut as a screenwriter.

“I think that more than anything, professional football is a family sport,” he told The Source. “You have a lot of coaching legacies and player and ownership legacies from people that own these teams and then pass them down to their kids. And even from a fan base I remember football being the thing that my whole family would sit down on Sundays to watch. We’d watch the Browns play and my mom made chili, and it was a real bonding experience, so we really wanted to capture that.”

Compiled and partly written by Indian humorist MELVIN DURAI, author of the novel Bala Takes the Plunge. [Comments? Contributions? Please email us at We welcome jokes, quotes, online clips, and more.]
