Favorite sports films of all time.

Lately on WordPress I have seen a lot of lists. Last week I read a post on the most “rewatchable” movies of all time, then just today someone made a list of their “47 funniest movies”. I believe you can find these lists on WordPress, if you want to have a look. So I thought why not make a list of my own. Today [July 5, 1921] is an anniversary of when the Chicago White Sox were accused of throwing the 1919 World Series, and became known as The Black Sox. This leads to my list..The Greatest Sports films ever made. How do I make such a list? It is exceedingly difficult, it has just one qualifier. I love ’em!
Eight Men Out-Baseball
Rocky I and II – Boxing
Field of Dreams -Baseball
Hoosiers – Basketball
The Pride of the Yankees – Baseball
Rudy – Football
Miracle – Ice Hockey
Seabiscuit – Horse Racing
Something for Joey – Football
Brian’s Song – Football
Jerry Maguire – Football
Ice Castles – Ice Skating
The Greatest Game Ever Played -Golf
Remember the Titans – Football
The Bad News Bears – Baseball
The Stratton Story – Baseball
The Natural – Baseball
The Sandlot – Baseball
Saint Ralph – Running
The Express – Football
Hoop Dreams – Basketball
The Heart of the Game – Basketball
Believe in Me – Basketball
Invincible – Football
This is a very subjective list and we do have many of these titles available to borrow at the Library. If I had to name a number one it would have to be Hoosiers.  Please let me know what  I may have left out, or even what your list would look like.
