BECAUSE THERE'S NO MACTION, WE HAVE 30 FOR 30 TO FALL BACK ON

There is no football on tonight, but there is a 30 for 30 on Ole Miss football and integration, and that's practically MACtion with a tangy hint of racism thrown in for good measure. Red Cup Rebellion did a Q and A with Wright Thompson about the documentary, and it's something you should read, but your eyes are saying: isn't that James Woods from the 1996 film Ghosts of Mississippi? Doesn't this film have nothing to do with football? Is James Woods wearing what is quite possibly the worst prosthetic makeup ever placed on a man in a film, and that's saying something considering the horrendous beards in Gettysburg? Does the intersection of "southern historical film" and "Hollywood" always produce "shitty, terrifying makeup?"

The answers to all these is HOTTY TODDY because Hugh Freeze says so, and no, you cannot get a retweet for your friend's sick child Fromunda Cheese because Hugh Freeze isn't falling for that shit this time.
