March Movie Madness

As it is now March, we thought it would be fun to have a Selection Sunday of our own. Each host chose 5 of their favorite sports movies that we then seeded (randomly pulled out of a hat) into a bracket to face off each week until we have a champion.


2 movies got automatic bids as group favorites…The Sandlot and Field of Dreams

Craig picked

  • White Men Can’t Jump
  • Necessary Roughness
  • A League of Their Own
  • Gleaming the Cube
  • The Mighty Ducks

Tony went with

  • The Program
  • Bull Durham
  • Blue Chips
  • Happy Gilmore
  • Rocky 4

Brian chose

  • Rocky
  • Rudy
  • Love & Basketball
  • Mystery, Alaska
  • Remember the Titans

Beau picked

  • Rocky 2
  • The Replacements
  • Victory
  • Angels in the Outfield
  • Jerry Maguire

Roy chose

  • Major League
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Hoosiers
  • Rocky Balboa
  • Varsity Blues

Nick went with

  • Enter the Dragon
  • Bloodsport
  • The Longest Yard (2005)
  • Waterboy
  • Crooked Arrows (Go ahead, we’ll wait while you Google it…)

You can find our bracket here:

This was a very unscientific bracket, we pretty much made our picks off the top of our heads with not much thought so we obviously overlooked some, like…

Eight Men Out, The Natural, Baseketball, Hoop Dreams, The Rookie, The Bad News Bears, Slapshot, Caddyshack, The Blindside, For Love of the Game, The Greatest Game Ever Played, 42, Above the Rim, Coach Carter, Glory Road, The Air Up There, Spacejam, He Got Game, Semi-Pro, Like Mike, The Karate Kid, Days of Thunder, Kingpin, Dodgeball, Tin Cup, Raging Bull, Ali, The Hustler, Chariots of Fire, Any Given Sunday, We Are Marshall, Little Giants, Miracle, Draft Day, Cool Runnings, Invincible, School Ties, Warrior, The Fighter, Over the Top, Million Dollar Baby, Balls of Fury, Brian’s Song, Knute Rockne All American, Talladega Nights, Blades of Glory, Cutting Edge, Cinderella Man, Ladybugs, Kicking and Screaming, Bend it Like Beckham, Shaolin Soccer, Pride of the Yankees, Creed, and Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

Any we missed? Are our picks way off?

  1. I looked at the “honorable mentions” and found two of my top picks, Little Giants and Miracle… I LOVE this idea and have been following the brackets. Keep it up as I have picked my favorites and want to see how far they go!!
