Which of these real life sport stories below is your favorite?
(This is not a part of the intense movie scenes poll row)
My vote: Miracle (2004)
I was attending the University of Minnesota when Herb Brooks led the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team to victory. Herb Brooks was the coach of the University of Minnesota hockey team at the time.
Hockey is the favorite sport in Minnesota. Many young people play hockey year round. Herb Brooks was a Minnesota hero when the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team won the gold metal.
For your consideration:
Brian's Song (1971 TV Movie)
Based on the real-life relationship between teammates Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers and the bond established when Piccolo discovers that he is dying.
It's tough to choose but I will go with Rush follow by Cinderella Man.
The rivalry between Niki and James trespassing to the movie was simply exciting. The movie is just great.
Cinderella Man for me, shows the determination and and passion of a boxer who has managed to turn around his life but without never lose his humility. When I watch this movie always gives me chills, truly inspiring.
One question, The Warrior is based on a true life story?
The story of the life and career of famed baseball player Lou Gehrig.
Released just 17 months after Lou Gehrig's death.
Lou Gehrig's famous retirement quote,
"Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth."
was originally spoken on Tuesday, July 4th, 1939.
And it was voted as the #38 movie quote by the American Film Institute
Gary Cooper ... Lou Gehrig

The 1919 Chicago White Sox season was their 19th season in the American League.
They won 88 games to advance to the World Series but lost to the Cincinnati Reds.
More significantly, some of the players were found to have taken money from gamblers
in return for throwing the series.
The "Black Sox Scandal" had permanent ramifications for baseball,
including the establishment of the office of Commissioner of Baseball

The new owner of the Cleveland Indians
puts together a purposely horrible team so they'll lose and she can move the team.
Charlie Sheen ... Ricky Vaughn

That's not real life enough for me.
I want the sportsman to be real life, not the farmer.
But you had some pretty good suggestions I will put on the list.
Thank you, ACT_1
If there were other real-life based sport movies with high excitement,
I would like to add some more without baseball or football.
Give other sports a chance, too, please. :D
But anyway thank you. You all were good help.
I loved that film so much that I watched it 4 times In theaters and I enjoyed all of them so much.
(This is not a part of the most intense movie scenes poll row)I don't think this line is necessary.
I was not sure, if all users will get it, that it's different from the named poll-row.
So ok, I will delete this line. Thank you for helping me to become more skillful. ;)
I do not believe that Warrior (2011) meets the criteria for your poll. According to this news article:
‘Banshee’ Co-Creator Jonathan Tropper Inks With CAA
May I suggest just two edits? (They're in bold below. I took the question out of bold only to avoid confusion. I like the question being bolded and I do the same thing.)
