My Top-10 Sports Movies

Entertainment Everything Else

Before everyone freaks out… no… Miracle is not on my list. I won’t lie, I’m more of a basketball, football, and golf guy. No one will ever change my mind about No. 1. Reminder: this is MY list. I’m aware this would be different for everyone on the planet. So… here we go with the Top-10 best sports movies.

10. The Replacements

Memorable line: “When the Washington Sentinels left the stadium that date, there was no ticker-tape parade, no endorsement deals for sneakers or soda pop, or breakfast cereal. Just a locker to be cleaned out, and a ride home to catch. But they didn’t know that their lives had been changed forever because they had been part of something great. And greatness, no matter how brief, stays with a man. Every athlete dreams of a second chance, and these men lived it.”

9. Remember the Titans

Memorable line: “Water is for cowards. Water makes you weak. Water is for washing blood off that uniform and you don’t get no blood on my uniform, boy you must be outside your mind!”

8. The Sandlot

Memorable line: “Jerk… Idiot… Moron… scab eater… butt sniffer… puss licker… fart smaller… you eat dog crap for breakfast geek, you mix your Wheaties with your momma’s toe jam, you bob for apples in the toilet and you like it… YOU PLAY BALL LIKE A GIRL!”

7. The Big Green

Memorable line: “I’m little, I’m low to the ground, I got power, I got moves! I’m your man!”

6. Little Giants

Memorable line:

Sean Murphy: Get ready, dog-breath, because when I’m finished with you, you’ll be farting out of your mouth, and talking out of your butt!
Rudy “Gasman” Zolteck: Is that physically possible?

5. Glory Road

Memorable line: “Now, they’ve been here before, so they’re not gonna give it to us! We gotta go out there and we gotta take it! Right? TAKE IT! I want you to go out there and TAKE IT!”

4. Rookie of the Year

Memorable line: “Ohhhhh… funky butt-loving!”

3. Coach Carter

Memorable line: “Ghetto hoop stars. Signing autographs and humping the honeys. Well, I’m going to show you what humping is.”

2. The Mighty Ducks franchise

Memorable scene: Russ Tyler in for goal pretending to be Goldberg will go down as one of the best trick plays I’ve ever seen. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so pumped up! Iceland’s coach screaming, “Noooooo” only verified that Tyler’s knuckle puck would find the back of the net. Every movie was amazing and this could easily be No. 1 in the Top-10 list.

1. Happy Gilmore

Memorable line: “Why didn’t you just go home? Are you too good for your home? Answer me! Suck my white a** ball!”
