Golden Globes nominations came out this week. Films about athletes — and films that have athletes in them — fared pretty well. Will Smith received a nomination for his portrayal of Dr. Bennet Omalu in "Concussion." The film depicts Omalu's work and research in spreading awareness about the dangers of multiple concussions. Bill Littlefield and Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce discuss the other sports-related Golden Globe nominees. The pair also discuss the probability that a fan will successfully trade an RC Cola vending machine for tickets to see Utah and BYU in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl.
