Favorite Sports Movies?

Recommended Posts

Over my lunch break at home I caught the end of Hoosiers and it got me to thinking of my favorite sports movies of all time.

I guess I'd have to go with Hoosiers as one of them. Incredible what that team accomplished! I also enjoy Remember the Titans A LOT and I'd have to give a big thumbs-up to Radio.

One movie I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing though is We Are Marshall. That looks like it would be an awesome movie!

Any others you guys like?

One of my favorite movies is Mystery Alaska. We are Marshall previews looks good, will have to check it out. Another good one but is always a tear jerker is Bryan's song. Brian Pickelo and Gale Sayers. A lot of good humor ones like Caddyshack or Happy Gilmore. Got to just love when he gets in a fight with Bob "yes I'm still alive" Barker. What a hoot. Rudy was great too.

I completely forgot about Rudy and Miracle. Those are awesome movies.

Oh, and since I'm a NASCAR fan, I gotta throw out there Talladega Nights! That movie was a hoot!

Hoosiers, Field of dreams, Bull Durham, Rudy.

I just caught Invincible last week and it was also very good.

Cannot forget the original Rocky.

That one is easy....KARATE KID, the first installment. Danielson overcomes all to not only crane kick Johnny in the mush for the trophy but walks away with my dream girl of junior high....I love you Elizabeth Shue.

Another excellent one is Raging Bull starring Robert DeNiro.

It won the Oscar for best picture in 1980.

A lot of good ones mentioned another that I liked was Seabiscuit. One I haven't yet seen but heard good reviews from was Glory road. A baseball one I liked as a kid was The Sandlot. For football what about The Waterboy? I actually kind of liked Varsity Blues.

As far as greatest movies per sport I think Dodgeball gets it for its sport by default, its not neccessarily a great movie, but it has its parts.

Two of the funniest scenes ever made. Swingers deserves so much more acclaim

    • I think Parise has been great this year, like his old self,  one of the few bright spots during a slow start. Liking Greenway more and more, he isn't producing yet but he looked good last night, really starting to use his size out there. Need to see more out of Coyle and Nino. 
    • I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!
    • Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?
    • Since there isn't a lot of covering ground I just don't need the last 30 seconds on a graph or a GPS map to know I've been sitting in the same spot for the last hour.  My phone is always on me when I need to move and I run navionics.  Half the year I'm in my truck when I'm on the move anyway.  If I'm on a dogsled in the bwca I have a handheld.   I'll stick to the flasher.   I upgraded to a bigger screen with the bird, but I just dont need a ton of features that really only make sense on a moving boat.   Just my two cents.
    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
