I just got done watching Remember The Titans, which remains one of my very favorite sports movies.

It made me think about my favorite sports movies of all time.

My top 10!

10. The Longest Yard -- I like the original better, but the newer version had a few good parts.

9. Rocky - I will list them all here, although I think Rock 2 is my favorite.

8. The Replacements -- I just like the whole movie..expecially the cheerleader tryouts!

7. Major League -- It still makes me laugh!

6 Caddyshack -- If you consider this a sports movie. Loved it as a kid. Still laugh when I watch it!

5. League of Their Own -- Very well done. Tom Hanks and Geena Davis were fantastic, as were Madonna and Rosie. Good clean movie!

4. The Natural -- Good movie, although parts of it still confuse me.

3. Remember the Titans -- Good movie. Good football action. Teaches us a lesson.

2. Brian's Song -- I still cannot watch it to this day without crying!

1. Field Of Dreams -- Perfect Movie!

HONORABLE MENTION--Miracle, Bang The Drum Slowly, Bad News Bears, 8 Men Out, Rudy, Happy Gilmore, Mr. Baseball, Karate Kid, MASH

Your thoughts?

Being from Johnstown it's against the law not to say Slap Shot and All the Right Moves...

THIS IS AN ORDER...GO OUT AND BUY OR RENT SANDLOT AND THE ORIGINAL BRIAN'S SONG, AND SIT AND WATCH THEM! Watch Brians Song with your wife or girlfriend..(but not both wife and gf at the same time)

Nobody picked "The Bad News Bears Go To Japan"? How about "Air Bud: 7th Inning Stretch"? "Rollerball"? "The Next Karate Kid"?

I guess you guys just aren't cultured enough.

Telladega Nights was almost my #10 but it just missed my cut. It would be my wildcard #11
