Lately on WordPress I have seen a lot of lists. Last week I read a post on the most “rewatchable” movies of all time, then just today someone made a list of their “47 funniest movies”. I believe you can find these lists on WordPress, if you want to have a look. So I thought why not make a list of my own. Today [July 5, 1921] is an anniversary of when the Chicago White Sox were accused of throwing the 1919 World Series, and became known as The Black Sox. This leads to my list..The Greatest Sports films ever made. How do I make such a list? It is exceedingly difficult, it has just one qualifier. I love ’em!

Eight Men Out-Baseball

Rocky I and II – Boxing

Field of Dreams -Baseball

Hoosiers – Basketball

The Pride of the Yankees – Baseball

Rudy – Football

Miracle – Ice Hockey

Seabiscuit – Horse Racing

Something for Joey – Football

Brian’s Song – Football

Jerry Maguire – Football

Ice Castles – Ice Skating

The Greatest Game Ever Played -Golf

Remember the Titans – Football

The Bad News Bears – Baseball

The Stratton Story – Baseball

The Natural – Baseball

The Sandlot – Baseball

Saint Ralph – Running

The Express – Football

Hoop Dreams – Basketball

The Heart of the Game – Basketball

Believe in Me – Basketball

Invincible – Football

This is a very subjective list and we do have many of these titles available to borrow at the Library. If I had to name a number one it would have to be Hoosiers.  Please let me know what  I may have left out, or even what your list would look like.
