    -Above the Rim
    -Eight Men Out
    -Miracle
    -Legend of Bagger Vance
    -The Greatest Game Ever Played
    -Remember the Titans
    -Hoosiers
    -61

    There's a lot more, but I want to give you guys a chance to name a few as well.

    The Sandlot and Hoosiers are at the top of the list, no doubt.

    And I may be the only person in the world who loves Any Given Sunday.

    So you're the one!

    It's ok. I think I'm the only one who likes The Program. Well, I'd still like it if I could find a version with the guys lying down in the road. Kind of in the Replacements and Necessary Roughness category of stuff I feel embarrassed about liking.

    My favorites:
    Bull Durham
    Major League
    61
    Eight Men Out
    Hoosiers
    The Longest Yard (original)
    Brian's Song.

    If I have to pick just one, it's Bull Durham.

    The Program was a great movie..definitely in my top five football movies I've ever seen.

    This is not a plug for Double J's book but you can't even have a discussion about sports movies without including Slap Shot. I mean, it's top five in any list.

    "Field of Dreams" is, in my opinion, one of the worst sports movie ever made. Cringingly awful.

    "Eight Men Out" is fabulous.

    Rocky
    Rocky II
    Rocky III
    Rocky IV
    Rocky Balboa

    Cinderella Man

    All the Marbles (yes it's pro wrestling, but I'm counting it. Besides, Vicki Frederick is hot)

    Plus some others that have also been previously mentioned: The Natural, Eight Men Out, Hoosiers, Bull Durham, Major League.
