    The Sandlot got absolutely screwed with a 7 seed. Playing a strong 10 seed no less. And if that's the original Brian's song? that's my dark horse to win it all.

    Kingpin listed is listed twice...


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Dude this is going to be tough. I loved "RAD" but it's going up against the "Natural". This is going to be really hard to choose. I take back what I said before. I like the field of 64.

    Re: Cyclone Fanatic Field of 64 Best Sports Movies Ever

    I'm thinking Rocky IV has the most to complain about, a 12 seed?!?! and a possible Rocky II matchup in the second round?!?

    Drago has some work to do to get out of that region

    Wait a minute...just because a movie has sports in it doesn't make it a "sports movie"...Sandlot should win on that basis alone.

    The Natural may have been a good movie, but I know one thing for damn sure......it should never, ever have been the Homecoming date movie for Atlantic High School. That thing lasted for freaking ever, and left no time whatsoever for post movie fun. Just sayin
