Great Scots

Even though I don't get into high school football, there was something to be said when the Highland Park Scots took the state championship last year. Those local-kids-do-good stories always choke me up. But then I started thinking, well, if these kids lost then their parents probably would have bought them a Hummer to ease their pain. Soon after, I wasn't so moved. Come to find out, there's a whole movie about these little privileged bastards. Band of Champions: The Story of the 2005 Highland Park Scots Football Team (clever title) shows at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 2500 Darnell St., 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Call 817-735-1117 or visit
Tue., May 30, 5:30 & 7:30 p.m.
