After Bill and Ted had their excellent adventure, after officer Jack Traven saved a bus full of people (most importantly Sandra Bullock) after Neo had to decide between the red pill and the blue pill, Shane Falco became a national hero in The Replacements (2000).
Keanu Reeves, whose first name means “cool breeze over the mountains” in Hawaiian (Thanks IMDB), starred in this story about a football team of scabs filling in for the pros during a lockout.
Alongside Gene Hackman, the man with almost no emotion Reeves leads a group of losers, has-beens and never were’s on an improbablewinning streak.
With the NFL Lockout still in full effect, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to induct Shane Falco’s jersey into the Sports Studio Hall of Fame.
Most of the originals have been stripped and repurposed for other commercials, tv spots and movies. Most recently, the Sentinels jerseys have made an appearance in the newest Jared the Galleria of Jewelry commercial.
But we locked up this signed Falco jersey over a decade ago, so we can guarantee that there’s at least one Sentinel jersey still in existence.
