Time for another installment of greatest sports movies. I think that each time I look over my list I want to change a few around, but then realize that there is no need to change anything. We are getting closer to the top choices and today we have numbers 8 and 7.
#8 Major League
I had the hardest time placing this movie so low on the list, because it is such a great movie. Charlie Sheen alone can put any movie in a top ten list, well until he went crazy which I am pretty sure was when he was born. This movie has it all and a whole lot more. I think I need to re-watch it though because I am forgetting all the players names except Willy “Mays” Hayes. Oh well. See it if you haven’t and enjoy the craziness that ensues.
Alright, any kid born between 1980 and 2000 should have seen this movie and placed it on any list of their greatest childhood movies. Sandlot is one of those movies that if you didn’t see it as a kid, you were obviously living under rock or in Siberia or something. If you have never heard the saying, “You’re killing me smalls” or “when I got us into the biggest pickle any of us had ever seen” or “for-ev-er, for-ev-er, for-ev-er” or about a thousand other quotable lines, then you haven’t lived. Sandlot is the movie from my generation that created a love for lifeguards named Wendy Peffercorn. Oh man. What an amazing movie. Definitely a must see for everyone who has never seen it and a second, third, or one thousandth watch for the rest of you.
