Top Five Favorite Sports Movies

Sport movies are really a good way to spend a summer which a relative who loves sports. Today, I will list my favorite sports movies of all time the first Top Five edition.

1. Rocky

Rocky is one of the greatest sports movie of all time and it is the first sports movie that has won Best Picture in the Academy Awards. The underdog Rocky Balboa is very inspiring. No one expect to make this far except for Rocky's girlfriend Adriane. The ending was great proof that you can always succeed in your dreams no matter what happens.

2. Hoosiers

Hoosiers has it all . A underdog story, an alcoholic father, and a story that has heart. I really couldn't decide if Hoosiers should number two or number one. Both of movies are some the best sports movies all time. Every non sports fan should see this.

3. Rudy
 Rudy is about a Norte Dame guy who wants to be in a game for the Norte Dame team back when it is best college football team in the nation. Rudy never give up for a chance to play as a Norte Dame football player and his dream finally came true. This movie is based on a true story about the life of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger and learning more about his life is worth seeing for any sports fan.

4. Remember the Titans
 Remember of the Titans is movie that involve a black coach named Herman Boone who gets hired as coach instead of the former coach Bill Yoast. Herman Boone tries to create a team with a bunch of white and black people, so they can get along with each other.  Bill Yoast was a vice coach for the main part of the movie, but still tries to motivate people to get along with each other. The story can be really tragic at times, but this movie shows that teamwork can impact any sport team. Anyone who is an sport fan should see this movie

5. The Blind Side

The Blind Side is a true story about a guy named Michael Orr who was currently homeless and needs to get to college very soon if he wants to play football. This is the most modern film that I found very inspiring and the shows a lot of character development. A modern sport that anyone could enjoy.

Honorable Mentions: A League of Their Own, The Karate Kid, and many more sports movie I've seen.
