5 Best Sports Movie Moments


A self proclaimed "encyclopedia of useless entertainment knowledge", Andrea has been a movie buff, avid bookworm and tv junkie for as long as she can remember. Generally a fan of epic fantasy and RomComs, living in the great city of New York has allowed her to expand her film interests to everything under the sun….almost (she still stays away from most everything horror-themed.) She can usually be found watching her favorite films on repeat (Lord of the Rings, 300) or mourning the loss of her favorite tv shows (R.I.P. X-Files and Lost). You also will never see her without a cup of coffee attached to her hand.

    Great list! I am a sports girl (watching, anyway), and I love all these scenes. I think my number one scene, though, will always be from The Natural: Roy Hobbs smashing the ball into the lights, stomach bleeding and all. It still gives me chills, even though I usually hate it when movies change the endings of books. I’m just a sucker for those huge happy endings, I guess. 🙂

      Thanks, Michelle! I actually haven’t seen The Natural…although, I believe there may have been an X-Files episode based on that (insert inner geek here.)

      There were a lot of moments I found when I really started thinking about it, but most of them were at the end of the movie and I didn’t want to make an entire article about moments that happened at the end, since I felt that was cheating. So it was a little hard but I think it worked out okay!

    I’m a huge sports movie fan as well, even though I couldn’t care less about watching actual sport (except maybe tennis).

    However, I am ashamed to say that I haven’t seen that many you listed funny enough. Actually, I’ve only seen 2 out of the 5: Field of Dreams, which is such a beautiful movie and Seabiscuit.

    One of my favorite sport movie moment is in Remember the Titans when Julius and Gerry go into their “Left side! Strong Side!” moment, that always gets me.
