On an earlier topic thread on best movie scenes I posted the following link. There are dozens of great sports movie scenes from films made down through the years but this is one many of you may have never seen.
If you are a fan of classic movies you may find this especially interesting. Since there were no comments I wonder - how many of you actually watched the clip? If you're interested after watching the clip, I wrote extensive comments on the clip on the earlier topic thread. Hope this adds to your day!
"Brick by brick, my citizens. Brick by brick"
I like when Redford knocks out the lights in the Natural. There are about a dozen others but the Natural was the first movie I saw on our first VCR as a kid and was a fond memory.
Wow. A lot to choose from. Brian's Song: The locker room scene where Gayle Sayers tells the Bears that Piccalo has cancer. The end of Rudy. Wild Thing walking out of the bull pen at the end of Major League (and the owner saying how she felt about the song!) Many more.

Great one from the 70's was Something for Joey. It is the story of John Cappaletti from Penn State winning the Heisman in '73, and donating it at the ceremony to his little brother Joey who has Leukemia.

A little bit on the fringe, but the training scenes from Bloodsport. JCVD at his best baby!
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
As a long timer fan of the sweet sport the scene from Gentleman Jim is one of my favorites. It demonstrates something that made sports great. The comments about being a good winner and loser expresses something that seems to be often missing from sports today.
I like Pacino's "inches" speech in Any Given Sunday.
Life Partners Forever_________ nic loves fineScum
I agree. When he hits the home run in the championship game and the sparks start flying was AUsome. But I also like the Rookie with Dennis Quade.
Auburn Family Now, Always, and Forever ! WDE
I like the Bull Durham scene where they meet on the mound during a timeout and discuss candle sticks as a good wedding present.
Agreed, many are good, but few are this inspiring.
Given to me by my brother, on a mix tape, back in '99.
The background music in this is "Peace", by Paul Kelly, on "Soundings in Film".
or, better still, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsxlQWFsgb4. (That's my soul right there.)
The "six inches in front of your face", that's where we Live. It's the choices you make in that place that defines you, and over time, your life, until one day it's all over.
So many of us have grand plans for Out There or The Future, but never really focus on what's right in front of us, right now.
Now... What are you gonna do?
My 2nd favorite, though its about life more than sport, but since it's from Rock balboa I think it counts.
Another great Speech, this time comes from Rocky Balboa
The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!
I watched some of the clip, long clip. No time today at work to watch entire clip. Did it actually relate to a sports clip scene? Not familiar with the movie.
Have to go with anything in Remembering the Titans and Brain's Song as fav movies. A lot of clips on each I liked...
Very underrated movie. I also appreciate how Stallone named this movie Rocky Balboa, therefore not acknowledging that there was indeed a Rocky IV.
