Sports Movie Madness Balboa Region (Edited 04/24/13 04:48AM by sisyphus1992)
I'm taking Nyce's advice, or stealing his idea.
Here is my idea of the top 64 sports movies since 1970.
My process.
I only chose movies made 1970 or later.
If you can drink and still compete I didn't consider it a sport. So no poker, pool, bowling, etc...

I know some very good movies didn't make it but there were only 64 slots.
Feel free to disparage my judgement in the coments.

I've never seen either in #3 so I picked the one closest to me almost being born. I was at least conceived maybe. I picked Brian's Song mostly because I refuse to consider racing a "sport".

Brian's Song is going tto be the overwhelming sentimental favorite- not only a true story but a sign of he times of American Society at one if its worst era's- it did make stars out of Williams and Caan

I love Brian Piccolo....and I want you to love him too....

And Kudos to Heaven Can Wait...if you haven't seen it, it IS worth watching (especially since the Rams win the Super Bowl in it)

Rocky.  Ugh.

I haven't seen a lot of these others.

I'm just voting to make a mess.

Cobb is possibly the most underrated baseball movie, if not sports movie, of all time.  TLJ is great in it and look for Roger Clemens in a cameo as a Athletics pitcher.

i've only seen breaking away ("i don't want any 'ini' in this house!") and talladega nights (which is the best movie ever made).

Rocky ended the cold war the way LL and Brad Paisley ended racism last week.
