twenty-five favored sports flicks

entertainment weekly made up a list of twenty-five sports movies that score. and it’s a pretty good list. i’m not opposed to it. but it failed to recognize some stories that are worth some recognition, and i felt inspired to make a list of my own.

the blind side
chariots of fire
chasing mavericks
cinderella man
the cutting edge
draft day
eight seconds
the express
fever pitch
for love of the game
glory road
happy gilmore
the karate kid
major league
the program
saint ralph
the sandlot
we are marshall

what’s on your list?
