And the Sports Oscar for Best Picture goes to….

I have to say I’ve never been a big Oscars guy. One reason is my wife hates going to or watching movies, so until this year I hadn’t seen a nominated movie in like ten years. Another reason would have to be a result of how pissed I got that Pulp Fiction lost to Forrest Gump for Best Picture. I never watched after that until this year.

Two things led to my watching the Oscars with an intensity only surpassed by watching football. First, I recently invested in a beautiful, albeit totally illegal software that allows me to stream movies for free… many times while still in the theaters. I was able to watch almost every movie up for the major categories. Second, there was an office pool that I entered which made the Oscars SOOOO MUCH more fun to watch. I finished dead last by the way, but totally worth it.

It is in this spirit I present the Top Ten Sports Movies Ever Made. I could easily do Top 30 and I know there will be plenty left off the list, but the following are my ten favorite sports movies.
