Wow, this movie sounds like....

...a blogger....
 
A 35 year old parking garage attendant from Staten Island, is the self
described "world's biggest New York Giants fan."  He lives at home with
his mother, spending his off hours calling in to local sports-radio station 760
The Zone, where he rants in support of his beloved team, often against his
mysterious on-air rival, Eagles fan Philadelphia Phil.  His family berates him
for doing nothing with his life, but they don't understand the depth of his
love of the Giants or the responsibility his fandom carries.  One night, Paul
and his best friend Sal spot Giants star linebacker Quantrell Bishop at a gas
station in their neighborhood.  They impulsively follow his limo into Manhattan,
to a strip club, where they hang in the background, agog at their hero.  Paul cautiously
decides to approach him, stepping into the rarefied air of football stardom
- and things to not go as planned.  
 
The fallout of this chance encounter brings Paul's world crashing down
around him as his family, the team, the media and the authorities engage
in a tug of war over Paul, testing his allegiances and calling into question
everything he believes in.  Meanwhile, the Giants march toward a late-season
showdown with the Eagles, unaware that sometimes the most brutal struggles take place far from the field of play.
