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

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
