Goofs

After Marcia got hit by a football, she had flashbacks of being hit. The first flashback is very different than the rest of the them. After the football hit her nose, she covered her face with her hands. Her hair got stuck in the hands and also her hair was swinging more. The rest of the flashbacks matched the real event.
