Leaf: The Film Clip!

A few months ago, Mike Tanier wrote about the new independently-made "mockumentary" Leaf, about everyone's favorite quarterback bust. Mike mentioned that he had a small role in the film, basically playing himself. The folks from Parking Lot Films have put out a film clip from the movie, shown on the NFL Network and other places, and it stars... our very own Mike Tanier! For those of you who always wondered what he looks like, now is your chance.

Cool. As I mentioned in that long ago thread, I still think that the Ryan Leaf story would be good material for a more in-depth, John Feinstein-type book.

Who'll play the love interest? My money is on Natrone Means or that saucy Junior Seau.

Tanier had beer thrown at him by Ryan Leaf?

5 - No. But I think it's worth spreading that as a garbled version of events just to increase the legend.
