Flagstaff, Ariz. — It was back to the movies for the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday. A year ago, coach Ken Whisenhunt called off practice one day late in training camp and sent his players to the movies. What followed was a season that ended in a surprise run to the Super Bowl.
Being a bit superstitious, the coach decided to stick with the movie break. This time, his players were expecting it.
The choice of fare: “District 9,” “G.I. Joe, the Rise of the Cobra,” “The Ugly Truth” and “Funny People.”
Whisenhunt chose the alien thriller “District 9.”
