We may need a First Four in this tournament.

While I agree with the sentiment we didn't do that for cereal and I'm good with it. It's alot to add while picking 64 as it is plus it's a hole another round I have to do as host.

You are the man for having Long Gone in there. My favorite baseball movie. It's one not too many people know about.

Also things to consider are remakes

I know this blasphemy to most on here but I enjoy newer Longest Yard more than the original.

Also what about a franchise like Rocky. Some could make a case a couple of Rocky movies could make a top 64 sports movie list.
Rocky 1 is the best in the series, but I would say Rocky 4 had a lot of cultural significance at the time due to the Cold War. I would just include those two.

Trouble with the curve underrated BB movie with Clint Eastwood
Slapshot is a great hockey movie but if it goes up against Miracle on Ice Ugh what a rough pic.
Hoosier easily best BB movie but the Fish who saved Pittsburgh was campy fun if I remember right
Breaking Away is a bicycle race movie that isn't terrible
Man I'm glad I'm not on this committee it'll be a tough one.
