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

    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds
