Philadelphia, PA (CBS)—Want to generate a little fire in the belly along with a few laughs, too? Returning again this Thursday night, Feb. 13 at the Eagles’ NovaCare Complex, Glen Macnow and Ray Didinger will host “Sports Movie Night,” beginning at 7 p.m.

Some of the featured films include Rocky, The Hustler, The Longest Yard, Hoosiers and Caddyshack—with Macnow and Didinger providing commentary on the best scenes in each movie.

This marks the third year Macnow and Didinger are teaming together to do this. And each year it’s been a raging success.

The night opens with one of the best pre-game pep talks in sports movie history in Miracle, when Kurt Russell, playing legendary 1980 U.S. hockey coach Herb Brooks, addresses his team prior to their historic game against the Russians at the Lake Placid Olympics.

“It’s really a great time, we give people all the juicy tidbits on the movies – how they came together, actors who almost got cast, legacy moments, Oscars, things like that. People really enjoy it,” Macnow said. “The Eagles serve refreshments, and we give everyone a copy of our book, ‘The Ultimate Book of Sports Movies.’ We do it in that big comfortable auditorium at the NovaCare. Last year, Eagles GM Howie Roseman and President Don Smolenski came by to greet the crowd.”

Tickets are $50 (which includes The Ultimate Book of Sports Movies, a $20 value) and benefit a great cause, going towards the Eagles Youth Partnership. Tickets can be purchased through this link http://events.lincolnfinancialfield.com/radiothon2013/index.html.
