50 Greatest Sports Films of All Time: Intro

The moment you've all waited for is finally here. The 50 Greatest Sports Films of All Time. Notice I didn't say HCM's or Henry Cotto's Mustache presents. I didn't say that, because that limits the scope of our list. This list isn't for just this site. This is the definitive sports film list for eternity and the universe. Maybe more.

The list will begin tomorrow with #50, and we will (try) to add a new flick each week day until we reach #1!!! See you back here tomorrow... or really every day. You should always be here.

For more info on how the movies were scored click Read More! === >

Each Party Host (even Peter, his participation counted as his NCAA Tourney win post. The draft is over so as far as we're concerned, so are his posting privileges. Thank you for your excellent draft coverage Peter. Seriously)... where was I... oh yeah: Every Party Host was asked to rank 30 films. Their #1 ranking got 30 points, # 2 got 29, and so on... After totaling up all the values we had our list of 50. SHOCKINGLY, there were some ties. We then checked to see how many lists the film appeared on. The film with more list appearances won the tiebreaker. If they were still tied, we took the average ranking of where they appearead on the list. If they were STILL tied, we took a vote... film vs film. IF, when the list is all posted, and you'd still like to see the result totals... I guess I can email you the excel spreadsheet. But if I screwed up, frack off. This was supposed to be fun you anal dickweeds.

Just to wet your appetite... here's a list of films that received votes but not enough to make the Top 50:

Blades of Glory
Pride of the Yankees
Nacho Libre
The Air Up There
Dead Solid Perfect
Over the Top
The Greatest Game Ever Played
Any Given Sunday
Gladiator
The Last Boy Scout
Bloodsport
Gus
No Holds Barred
Major League 2
Mr. 3000
Gleaming the Cube
3: The Dale Earnhardt Story

Should have #50 tomorrow as long as the guy who voted for it gives me some info on it.... cuz I've never seen it, and I don't think anyone else has.

ALRIGHT!!!! Enjoy the list!

(PS I clearly haven't figured out how to use this Read More deal yet. Please be patient.)
