Hoosiers, Glory Road, Invincible, Leatherheads (plain goofiness…very enjoyable), Remember the Titans (saw this last year in US History), We Are Marshall, The Greatest Game Ever Played and Prefontaine (XC camp) are all great sports movies and as weird as it is, quite a few are done by Disney.

I want to see Million Dollar Baby, Coach Carter, Gracie, Goal!, Cinderella Man, Dodgeball, Gridiron Gang, The Longest Yard and Seabiscuit very much…when I have the time, I’ll most likely pass out because I can’t decide what movie I’ll see first on the site as a whole.

Is Jerry Maguire a sports movie too?
