    Here are two of my favorites. Friday Night Lights and Rudy. I have others but what are some of yours? (Can be football, basketball, hockey, baseball or other sports.) :rolleyes:

    I love Rudy, and Little Big League. Those have got to be my two favorite sports movies.

    SLAPSHOT is a true classic! Seen it at least a dozen times and still bust a gut laughing!

    Yes, I should have listed Slapshot! We the movie first came out, Birmingham (AL) had just been introduced to the frozen sport with a new coliseum and a hockey team. I think most everyone in the area went and cheered that movie!

    I wish it would be on Blu Ray.

    Don't know if this can be classified as a sports movie, I don't even play baseball. Field Of Dreams. It involves a ball sport anyways.

    Brian's Song was one of the most sad movies I've ever seen. The man died from testicular cancer. They didn't tell that in the movie.
