Huge News! Itunes launch & All Star Game

Hello everyone, hope all is well.  We are still working hard on the film which has come so far.  It is amazing to think back when we were going through the filming (with no real clue what we were doing ).  With that said, we always had at least a thought on where we wanted to go, which was to get Jay's story documented and get it out to inspire and motivate others.

We have succeeded at both, but only because of the amazing effort of everyone involved, the passion of the soccer community, the recognition that Jay's story can inspire others.  We have done all this without any Hollywood "backing" and without any "advertising" budget.  We just got word that we are now up on itunes and amazon!

Below is a link to itunes. I believe this link works for the U.S., UK (and rest of Europe), Canada, and even beyond as well.  It is great to see Jay's story continue to spread and we now hope that it will continue to spread to a "mainstream" audience beyond the soccer world. If everyone has a second and could share this link via facebook, twitter, etc. (and possibly review the film!) we would greatly appreciate it. This is such a major accomplishment for the film.  On another note, Jay just got nominated to the Starting XI of the MLS All Star game.  After a year of injuries and some frustration he is now back and healthy.  The script still isn't finished!

Also, Jay will be playing against Chelsea's squad for the MLS game and we told him he needs to get a copy of the film to Frank Lampard who is in it as well.  Will keep you filled in! As always, Rise & Shine!
