    The Blind Side, the story of current Baltimore Ravens left tackle Michael Oher and the wealthy family that rescued him from the street, is currently the No. 1 movie in America.

    It certainly has a lot to attract viewers’ interest—an uplifting story and a great actress in Sandra Bullock playing Leigh Anne Tuohy, the woman who takes Oher in when she sees him on the street without a coat in winter weather.
