So Michael's funeral serves as a meeting place for these former rowers and they decide to get together and row again and a movie is made of this.  Amazing.

Click on the above.

Watched the movie. Nice feel good story. Plenty of Michael mentions. 

Shocking how brutal life is for kids growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in Chicago. Difficult to comprehend but this movie certainly goes into that.

Mike, I watched it too.  And there's also a book:

As you said, plenty of Michael mentions.  Good movie.  I wish I'd known to talk more about this with Michael.
