Football is back. Baseball is winding down. Basketball is preparing to start up. This is the best time of year for many people, whether due to their love of sports entertainment, or the change in the weather, or for the fact that the awards season is finally approaching. September brings about many changes, most of which are welcome. So being that the NFL kicks off this weekend (officially kicked off with Wednesday night’s New York Giants/Dallas Cowboys game), I figured we could change up Circuit 3 for the week and let you post your three favorite/best sports themed films. Whether a biopic like The Pride of the Yankees or Raging Bull; a fictionalized sports story like The Natural or Rocky; a comedy like The Bad News Bears or Major League; a documentary like Hoop Dreams or Murderball; or just a movie with a sports background like Field of Dreams or Jerry Maguire; you can choose anything you like that extends to the world of sports.
My Circuit 3 for Sports Movies:
- Raging Bull (1980)
- Rocky (1976)
- Field of Dreams (1989)
What are your three best/favorite sports films?
