Your Turn

From a reader.

With sporting events being cancelled and postponed, what sports themed movie or tv show would you recommend to help fill the void?

Rudy, longest yard, varsity blues, the train, invincible is the best

sandybrook said...

The Rocky's and The Blind Side. Also The Wrestler to remember Mickey Rourke before he completed went off the rails.

Vita said...

I love Breaking Away, Rocky I-III, original Longest Yard

T. W. said...

Why not read a book instead? Your brain will thank you.

Rosemary Young said...

Chariots of Fire (sports movie for non-sports fans!)

Shaddup Mimsey said...

The Sandlot

Aisle B Bach said...

In addition to the aforementioned...Slap Shot is a must as is Remember the Titans

Rosie riveter said...

Well since Alf & the rest of the Q's here think this is a hoax maybe they could get together and stream a flag football tourney oh! better yet! WWE Wrestling! Haha
Omg Alf v Monkeyweather first; winner goes against Philly Willy
Oh please in the name of baby Jesus, do this in the middle of a dirty Walmart.

Tv: Friday night lights
Movie: Hoosiers

That marble racing channel on Youtube is pretty lit.

Megley said...

Bull Durham, Tin Cup,The Longest Yard,The Comebacks, For Love of the Game,Tigertown.

Studio54 said...

Nothing. Because this is deadly serious and getting worse by the day I keep the news on because the situation changes constantly.

Rudy

RandomJ18 said...

Movie: A League of Their Own
TV: 30 For 30

Jon said...

Dodgeball

HushHush said...

For all the ski resorts shutting down Hot Dog the movie.
Horror movie with same theme Shredder.

Amartel said...

Caddyshack

Underdog

Ice Castles

Its this crazy 1970s movie about an olympic ice skater who goes blind but then learns how to skate while blind to try to make it back to the olympics while telling everyone her blindness is cured.

It's the silliest movie I have ever seen, and parodied in that Will Ferrell Blades of Glory movie which is also a good suggestion along with Talledega nights

Space Jam

PhillyWilly said...

Something for Joey, the greatest sports movie ever made. TV movie, in fact. true story. check it out.

Melvin said...

The Natural

Chippy Hick said...

The Blind Side; you may cry tho. Also Moneyball with Brad Pit. Eddie the Eagle..true story and played brilliantly by gorgeous Taron Egerton. Cheer is a netflix docu about the best cheer team in US..strangely addictive. Also Last Chance U ..another documentary series about college football. But 100% The Blind Side x

Chippy Hick said...

Aw..Remember The Titans...beautiful story.

Todd said...

Caddyshack

AListDiva said...

Yep, 30 for 30 is a great documentary series on ESPN. Nothing wrong with watching re-runs of old game son the ESPN classic channel either. At least now is a good time to start binge watching a series or watch a dvd that's been sitting around awhile. I'm at the end of a book, but not sure if my library will stay open much longer. Now that my gym is closed i'm going to try and watch Breaking Bad or Mad Men that i've had sitting on my Netflix list for years!

Bull Durham

nancer said...

hoosiers!

Sd Auntie said...

LOL.Rosie. you forgot MDS..

Humor Me said...

Movie: Grand Prix

MyDogSmiles said...

@Rosie and Sd Auntie We will have the last laugh. I hope you both stocked up on toilet paper because you're going to be shitting yourselves in the near future :)

PattiJoy said...

Brian's Song (first version with Gayle Sayers and James Caan); Pride of the Yankees, the Lou Gherig story; The Natural with Robert Redford; Bull Durham, with Kevin Costner and Tim Robbins; The Sandlot; A League of Their Own; Moneyball; Field of Dreams.

Cubs fan here. My daddy turned me into a giant baseball fan, a love that is part of his legacy to me.

Unknown said...

Money Ball, White Men Can't Jump, Jerry McGuire.

Valerie said...

Grand Prix, Rush

La Morena said...

The longest yard with Burt Reynolds, Bad News Bears with Walter Matthau and Tatum O’Neal .

PhillyWilly said...

great call LaMorena with the original BNB, classic. trying to go beyond the usual suspects. Something for Joey will have you bawling.
this is a documentary, but One Nation Divisible about Ali-Frazier I is terrific.

Weekittylass said...

Slapshot. The greatest sports movie of all time.

okmaybeonemore said...

Hoosiers, The Natural

PhillyWilly said...

@MDS dude, just ignore the morons. in their world, Oswald was the lone gunman, Sirhan killed RFK despite firing more bullets than his gun held, a Mcvey killed women and children bc he became disillusioned with special forces etc, and two 100 ft skyscrapers disintegrated bc of 19 skinny ass towel heads with box cutters. I have family members who also take refuge in the words "conspiracy theory", just as the mind controllers intended when they intro'ed it into the lexicon. they will be convinced soon enough. God wins brother...

Sd Auntie said...

Already stocked up for Aramgeddon and ooga bbogga booga bah. 🤣

MyDogSmiles said...

@PhillyWilly God wins indeed brother!

Sd Auntie said...

Sure can dish it out but can't take it. Ooga Oooga bing bong, my conspiracy theories reek like cow dung. TKYDC

Sd Auntie said...

And god is on my side because I do gods work everyday. Not like the nationalist that u are.

Sd Auntie said...

Have a great day everyone. Stay safe and don't let the bed bugs get you

Jeweled Skye said...

Slapshot and North Dallas Forty

A. said...

The League (tv show), it's hilarious.

MinMin said...

The idea that Baseball season may be a LONG way off makes both myself and my husband very sad... so here's our lists:

Truly fun baseball movies:
Major League
Bull Durham
Take me Out to the Ball Game
The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings

Those with a more serious tone:
The Natural
8 Men Out
The Babe
Cobb

Baseball films for those who feel they need a good cry:
The Pride of the Yankees
Field of Dreams
A League of Their Own

Little league movies:
The Sandlot
The Bad News Bears (the original ones - including both "in Breaking Training" and "Goes to Japan")

As for TV:

WATCH BROCKMIRE!!! The first 3 seasons are on Hulu and the last season starts THIS WEEK on IFC. It's hilarious.

Brayson87 said...

TV show:
Blue Mountain State, absolutely hilarious. People also seem to like the Varsity Blues tv show but I haven't had a chance to watch it.

Movies:
Dodgeball, Caddyshack, Major League, Field of Dreams

But seriously if you're hankering for sports just play one of the dozens of sports video games. As many hours of sports action as you want.

Brayson87 said...

Folks who didn't believe the virus was a real threat were just getting bad information, they trusted the wrong sources. Happens to everyone at some point. Even the mainstream media was days if not weeks behind what was being reported online by foreign physicians and regular citizens with video.
At this point though, believe whatever you like, but follow the guidelines to avoid transmission.

SlimKeith said...

Gauloise--That film, is Ice Castles. I LOVED that film in the 80's 90's.

Definitel: Pride of the Yankees. Heaven can wait field of dreams..
Original Bad New Bears rudy Rocky

Aisle B Bach said...

@Brayson87 "If you can dodge a wrench...you can dodge a ball" (hopefully a virus too!)

Rosie riveter said...

So this is all the big plan of God to get rid of only the evil liberals and pedoos??
I've got some bad news for you, my Christian brethren. This will kill the conservatives too. Don't confuse the rapture for coronarvirus.
Your savior trump will happily allow you to die if it means he lies to you in order for his numbers to stay up.


Brayson87 said...

@Aisle, Haha it's such a great movie.

Hoosiers

Vita said...

Now that a couple of people have mentioned figure skating...I, Tonya was really great, and the 90s romcom The Cutting Edge with DB Sweeney and Moira Kelly was lighthearted fun.

Weepers that I'm still not sure I've recovered from-- Brian's Song and The Champ (Jon Voight/Ricky Schroeder)

notthisagain said...

I think the studios see the writing on the wall & like Disney w/star wars & frozen 2 and today w/Universal’s move to release all their current theatrical releases on VoD for $19.99 which is basically the same cost of a movie ticket & small popcorn so I guess if that happens it will help.

Unknown said...

I, Tonya.

MattDaddy said...

The Bad News Bears. The original. Also Semi-Tough and the Longest Yard (original, or course).

fliss92 said...

Agreed, and I tend to hate sports movies anyway.

CBGB said...

The Challenge comes back April 1. Seasons 23 - 35 are always in rotation on Pluto TV.

Pogue Mahone said...

I never watched sports even before and personally I'm GLAD there's a break from it and I don't have my regular TV shows pre-empted because of that crap all the time or have it always hijacking the nightly news.

orangesoda said...

Warrior. I hate sports films (even though I'm a sports fan) but you can't go wrong with Tom Hardy topless.
