McG Shows Off His Kicking Skills At Football Game
Movie maker MCG showed off his sporting skills during a recent American football challenge at America's Marshall University as he wowed a sell-out spring warm-up game crowd with his kicking prowess. The CHARLIE'S ANGELS director, who is shooting new movie WE ARE... MARSHALL with MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY at the West Virginia university, nailed field goal kicks from 20, 25, 30 and 35 yards as football fans cheered him on. MCG was so impressed with his feat he promptly offered to give the university $20,000 (GBP11,000) for letting him achieve one of his dreams as part of university team the Thundering Herd's half-time show. His new film follows the rebirth of Marshall football after a 1970 plane crash, which killed 75 members of the team and their coaching staff.
