I'm looking forward to "Through The Fire," ESPN's documentary about the life of Sebastian Telfair during his senior year of high school. It won Best Documentary Feature at the 2005 Urbanworld Film Festival, the Audience Award for Best Documentary at 2005 AFI Fest, and was a Spotlight Selection at the 2005 Film Festival.

It just has to be a step up from the After School Special feel of Code Breakers and the southern sappiness of 3: The Dale Earnhardt Story. And I'm still mad about Season on the Brink starring Brian Dennehy. There has not been a casting choice that poor since Sofia Coppola in The Godfather III.

It airs tonight at 8 on ESPN, if you decide that you've had just about enough of Joe Lunardi.
