I not only love sports,I love movies about sports. Over the years their have been some great movies and I would like to hear what are some of your personal favorites are. You can name more than 5 if you want but I narrowed mine down to 5.

1.Glory Road-MY All-Time Favorite.... Not only was it a true story,but it showed a coach that was willing to go against the normal mindset of coaching at that time and put the best players on the court regardless of color or what everyone else thought.

2.Any Given Sunday-Oliver Stone is one of my favorite directors and the movie has a great cast and gives what I think is a accurate view of life in the NFL.

3.Soul of The Game- This movies was based on the 3 central players( Satchel Page,Josh Gibson,Jackie Robinson) who made the Major Legue take notice to great players from the Negro Leagues and allow black players into the Majors.

4.Remember The Titans- Another true story that shows how a great coach can bring the best out of his players no matter what is going on in the public or the lockeroom.

5.The Program,Rudy-Two great movies. I could'nt decide which one I liked the most.My favorite part in Rudy was while at Practice, Rudy knocked the QB down and the QB caught feelings :lol

Well there's my 5 what's yours Family?

1. The Natural - I just love this movie. It has terrific actors and a compelling story of loss and redemption. The home run in the lights at the end is classic.

2. The Naked Gun - not a sports movie directly, but it has the funniest sports sequence ever. :lol

3. Major League - What a great cast of characters in this film. The interaction between them all and the love story with Tom and Renea was wonderful.

4. Necessary Roughness - I have to pick this over The Replacements because Scott Bakula and Sinbad were really good in this film (and Kathy Ireland never hurts ;) )

5. Rocky 4 - "I will break you" :) I like this the most of all the Rocky movies. I can watch the training montage in Russia over and over again.

1) Field of Dreams - only sports flick to bring me close to tears
2) Bull Durham - awesome baseball movie with best comedic moments
3) Caddyshack - 2nd funniest sports flick to me
4) Bang the Drum Slowly - wonderful underrated flick - another sad one
5) Major League - any scene with Lou rules.

I find it just unbearable to not give 5a) to Hoosiers. Awesome story and movie.
