About Invincible

Many football players tend to retire by 35 years old. Our main protagonist is advised against trying out for the Philadelphia Eagles team because he is around 30 years old. With only some high school experience and technically close to retirement age, Papale is not exactly prime rookie material. Nonetheless, he proves everyone wrong and went on to be the oldest rookie in the history of the NFL to play with almost no football while in college.

One thing that we LOVE about this film is that it’s a true story! Vince Papale was a real guy who went against the advice of others and beat the odds to make himself happy. Interestingly enough, the real Papale after retiring from the NFL went on to work as a broadcaster and eventually a commercial mortgage broker. And of course, had a movie made based on his life. True stories are super important to us because it's movies like Invincible that let us know that it’s never too late to follow our dreams no matter how big they are.

Invincible's Relation To Sport Business

In the film Invincible, a few valuable lessons are displayed on the screen for us. A big one for us is to simply never give up when times seem hard. Very early in the film, Pascal loses his job, his wife leaves him and you can generally witness his spirits go way way down. But guess what, his life became something worthy enough to be recreated on the big screen! He recognized his own potential that he held within him all along and brought it to light.
