From the Archives — Spirit of St. Louis

“He’s a book, he’s a movie, this guy,” said St. Louis Rams former head coach Dick Vermeil after Warner led the Rams to their dramatic 23-16 victory in Super Bowl XXXIV by throwing for a record 414 yards.

Well, the book’s already out. It’s Warner’s autobiography, accurately titled All Things Possible. The movie? There’s nothing in the works–yet–but if you take Rudy, Rock, and Field of Dreams, and roll them all into one, you’ll get the idea what Kurt Warner: The Movie would be about.

Warner insisted after his record-shattering Super Bowl performance that “I don’t think of it as a Hollywood story. It’s just my life.”
