It's loosely based on the Duluth Eskimos pro team and a man by the name of Johnny Blood McNally who is in the pro football hall of fame. He served in WWII as a cryptographer. No War hero status.
We've become something of an "expert" on this movie as it was filmed here and for weeks the movie and George Clooney and Renee Zellweger topped the evening news eclipsing real news like fires and shootings and such. And the newspaper devoted mucho space to it and even had a daily countdown until the premiere. The entire town went Hollywood crazy which prompted one of the local theatres to put on a production called "Chasing George Clooney" which I understand was very funny. I missed that as well.
