Corky’s 100 Favorite Sports Movies

This is a list of my 100 personal favorite sports movies of all time.  I am simply ranking these movies based on the entertainment value they have in my eyes.  This includes how good the story line is, acting quality, the sports accuracy, humor, and re-watch-ability.  My list basically comes down to how much the movie entertained me, and if I will be able to watch it multiple times.

Eagles Going for it all in 2011!

The Philadelphia Eagles seem to have Super Bowl aspirations for the ’11-’12 NFL season.  They finished last season 10-6 and lost in the playoffs to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers by a mere 5 points.  It was Michael Vick’s first full season back since being released from prison and he impressed.  He was actually electrifying most of the season.  While he always has an injury risk because of his style of play, his QB IQ should only go up with another year under Andy Reid and the rest of the Eagles staff.
