    That's a pretty good list. I would add Bull Durham.

    As much as I love Caddyshack and Happy Gilmore, I just don't view golf as a sport...same as race car driving, be it Formula 1, Indy or NASCAR

    I have to question everything when the Sandlot isn't anywhere on any of these lists.

    I've read through the posts so far and I gotta question everything when there's no mention of Rudy, Brian's Song, Tin Cup, or Miracle..... and no mention of The Hustler, The Color of Money, Raging Bull, Sea Biscuit, 8 Seconds, or A League of their Own? ...... or no Days of Thunder, Breaking Away, The Express, The Program, The Waterboy, Varsity Blues, or Necessary Roughness?..... or no We are Marshall, Coach Carter, The Hurricane, Legend of Bagger Vance, Ali, Radio, or The Rookie?

    You guys need to watch more movies. :D ....especially the opening poster. :tongue2:

    Ya I don't know how I left The Program out. That's probably my single favorite sports movie of them all. Omar Epps and James Caan were awesome in and it was one of the few movies to accurately portray the lifestyle of a major college football star. It was also filmed at Williams Brice field for those Clemson fans who can't stand the original USC and Epps and Kristy Swanson both also starred together in another good movie Higher Learning.

    A league of their own was blah imo. Varsity Blues was another one of my faves I accidentally forgot about. How, I don't know. Ali Landry in a whip cream bikini will forever be etched in my mind :lol:

    Swanson and Larter were the bomb! Watching all those actors age before our eyes just makes me feel old knowwhutImean.

    I like how the campus and classroom scenes in The Program were filmed at Duke however. Guess they didn't feel SC's campus was worthy enough. :tongue2:

    It was partially a Joe Dirt homage to his firework stand scene.

    There are a bunch of movies that I wish I were older (like 30+) when I first saw them, The Natural being one. Think I would've enjoyed 'em much better.

    Most of the time, I just don't enjoy sports movies as dramas. At best, the sport itself is minimized and only used as a backdrop to tell some other story. At worst, they get everything wrong and its too distracting. For me, comedies translate much better, because even if its over the top and silly, thats part of the fun. I agree with Ohio Fanatic's list, and also add Baseketball, which while make believe and intentionally silly, is at its heart a sports movie also, and a good parody of sports at the time that fans are about to enjoy more than the rest of the audience.

    I gotta say, I agree with Dupree...not literally of course but Rudy was not one of my favorites. At best it was unimaginative...and it was about a school I can't stand since I grew up a Canes fan in the 80's. :theu:

    I've got your back, Boik. I've always thought that Rudy looked like such a lame movie, that I've never cared to waste my time watching it. :up:
