"The Blind Side" in Oxford, MS

 "The Blind Side" has been the underdog hit at movie theaters since it's November 20 debut.  Two weeks after opening, the movie is at the #1 spot in not just Oxford, but also the US and Canada.  The movie is based on the true story of a homeless youth, Michael Oher, who was taken in by the Tuohys, wealthy Memphis family, and achieved success playing football at Ole Miss and was then drafted by then Baltimore Ravens.  It is an inspiring story of how the Tuohy's helped Oher overcome many of life's obstacles and adopted him into their family.  The Ole Miss and Oxford community share a special tie to the movie, since Ole Miss was home to Oher throughout his college career.
