    Miller's Sweet 16 Sports Movies

    1. The Natural
    2. CaddyShack
    3. Raging Bull
    4. Charriots of Fire

    1. Field of Dreams
    2. Bull Durham
    3. Rudy
    4. Breaking Away

    1. Rocky 2
    2. Rocky
    3. Brian's Song
    4. The Longest Yard (original)

    1. Hoosiers
    2. Slapshot
    3. Bad News Bears
    4. Miracle

    Pretty decent bracket but Brian's Song is WAY too low. I think Bull Durham might be a one seed too. Field of Dreams is too high. Who's left out???

    Re: Miller's Sweet 16 Sports Movies

    I see they have rocky 1 & 2, but my favorite is 4. Who doesn't want to see Rocky beat the snot out of Ivan!?

    Also, no Mighty Ducks? Come on!

    I also like Vision Quest, but that is a lesser know movie, and it is about wrestling so most people wouldn't dig it.

    Re: Miller's Sweet 16 Sports Movies

    This list could be a good topic settled by the members of CF. Do individual polls with 1vs4 2vs3 for each group.(24 hours to vote for each pick) Then have a final four in a week.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    It also depends on your age....I'm 23 so the newer ones sit better with me.

    Re: Miller's Sweet 16 Sports Movies

    Only possible ones I can think of that were left out are North Dallas 40, White Men Can't Jump, A League of Their Own, and Pride of The Yankees. BUT, they are close enough to the others that it's not that bad to leave them out.

    I think this needs to expand to 65 movies.

    Thank you! I love the Ducks.
