''DRAFT DAY" -- JENNIFER GARNER

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jennifer Garner was a true football fan before she was cast in "Draft Day," but she admits to being fuzzy on football as a teenager. Garner grew up in West Virginia, where high school football is a passion. She went to every game because she was in the marching band. Her senior year she caused a scandal by quitting the band and becoming the team's water girl. Garner says she didn't necessarily know what was going on, but she cared about which end of the field they were on with her heart and soul. Garner says she still likes football but her main job on Sundays is to run after the kids so her husband, Ben Affleck, can watch the Patriots.
