    Sports Movie moments

    I asked Chris this, just wanted to see what some other Fanatics had to say on it.

    If you could see any movie sports event in real life as a fan in the stands, which event would it be? I would pick the end of Major League when Taylor calls his shot.

    Men want to have fun, women want to take fun out to the middle of the woods and shoot it in the head.

    Re: Sports Movie moments

    This is a copout but since they made a movie based on it...

    1980. Semifinals of the medal round. **** the Russians.

    For a completely fictional movie?

    Probably Major League II when Wild Thing returns to face Parkman.

    Being at the first home game the following season after the Marshall plane crash(We Are Marshall). That would have been unforgetable.

    Re: Sports Movie moments

    Of any sporting event I could attend it would not be from a movie. It would be to see Seneca's run, the tornado game, and this year's Nebraska game again. I was at all of them and don't believe there is anything that could come nearly as close to those moments from any movie. That's just me though.

    #1 Rudy because it's a true story followed by Rocky II at #2 and The Natural in the 3 spot.

    This may be too "unreal", but I'd go with the end of Field of Dreams. Always makes me tear up a little.
