First of all, when you get to the top of the hill on that winding road you get to what is named Pleasant Hill and it is aptly named. Besides cards, Frank has movie night every Friday, and that’s the only time you can view anything as Frank has no TV on any other time.
October’s Friday Moves are as follows: This Friday, in honor of the undefeated Big Red vs. New Philly game, Frank’s at 5 p.m. (as always on Fridays) will show the move “Remember the Titans” about a high school football team in 1971. As always, there will be free popcorn and dollar beers. After the movie they will have the Big Red game on the radio and there will be fresh beer bratwurst on famous Steubenville bakery bread for only $1.50. Beer will still be a buck.
The following Friday at 5 p.m. the movie will be “Knute Rockne All American” with Ronald Reagan making his famous statement when things are down tell the boys to win one for the Gipper.
The October Friday movies end, as always, with Frank’s favorite, the 1971 movie “Brian’s Song” with the great cast of James Caan, Billy Dee Williams, Dick Butkus, Jack Warden and Shelly Fabares.
If there is a World Series game on a Friday with the Indians in it Frank will call an audible and show the movie “Major League,” another Frank’s favorite. Frank also wanted me to remember he has the same Brunswick pool table that he and I used to play on. He was glad I left town or the bar would be called Rick’s.
Frank also has the same juke box he had back in 1966 and has never changed the records. It still costs a nickel a song. One catch however is back in the 60’s Frank did not card you. Now everyone he doesn’t know gets carded as you need to be 55 and older to get in.

E. MICHIGAN +5.5 at Army: The Eagles from Ypsilanti, Mich., have a very good defense and have gone UNDER the total in all five of their games this year. This will be another one and we will also take the points as Eastern Michigan has gone 6-0 ATS after playing Toledo, who they played last weekend. EASTERN MICH/UNDER
