    First impressions and all that: Breaking Away was the first one I ever saw (just an age thing), and it remains my favorite. Bad News Bears (Matthau version) second. I wouldn’t put the following anywhere near a Top 10 list, but Woodlawn‘s football and social side was surprisingly good. The ending of it was kind of infuriating in a “oh hell no it didn’t play out like that” kind of way. Kind of odd for a movie extolling the power of Christianity to end in a big lie, but the rest of it was surprisingly good.

    I’d have a hard time picking a favorite movie, but for favorote scene from a sports movie it’s hard to top the prison scrimmage in Necessary Roughness. Especially Dick Butkus’s welcome.
    For a favorite line from a sports movie, I nominate “Peave love, dope! NOW GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!”

  4. As my boys enter the sports arena, I have to take the cheap way out and say that my favorite movie is a combination of moments in different movies. Lollygagging locker room scene in Bull Durham, no crying in baseball, the ‘too high’ fan comment in Major League, and the substitute umpire scene in Naked Gun. Obviously, these come in handy for random comments during my kids baseball moments.

    The Natural is a damn-near perfect film. The original version of The Longest Yard never gets old. Though it’s kind of “jokey” now, seeing the first Rocky in 1976 was a fantastic experience. And I love the Warren Beatty version of Heaven Can Wait.

    I can’t pick one, so I’m just going to list some of the sports movies I’ve enjoyed.

    Dodgeball: remember the 5 D’s, “dodge, duck, dip, dive, and…dodge”

    Pretty much any sports movie with Kevin Costner in it. Of course Bull Durham and Field of Dreams stand above the rest. I wasn’t too enamored with For Love of the Game when I first saw it, but it’s grown on me with subsequent viewings. I liked Draft Day too.

    All of the Rocky movies, with the exception of Rocky 5. Creed II was better than I expected, would definitely recommend watching it if you haven’t already, although the training montage (a hallmark of the Rocky franchise) was a little weak in my opinion.

    Necessary Roughness is a good one. I’ve always liked Scott Bakula.

    I’m surprised that no one’s mentioned The Program, since this is a college football blog after all. “WOOOOO! STARTING DEFENSE! PLACE AT THE TABLE! WOOOOOOOOO!”

    One of my favorites that doesn’t seem to get much love is The Replacements with Keanu Reeves. It’s one of those movies that I’ll stop on whenever I’m flipping channels no matter how many times I’ve seen it.

      One thing about Tin Cup that has always bugged me: he had about 250 to the last green and he was hitting 3 wood, correct? On the range after the qualifier for the bet with Simms, he hit a 7 iron 223. “Toed it a bit, but it’ll do!” He didn’t have a club between 7 iron and 3 wood he could have hit into that green with a little more loft, so as to not roll back into the drink? Otherwise, I love the movie. Shelton is great with sports movies, I love White Men Can’t Jump and Bull Durham. Haven’t seen his other films.

      Not if you deflect.

      You have to understand that the “tax cuts pay for themselves” thing is not something they actually believe. Reality tells you that every time.

      What they believe is that it’s easier politically to cut taxes than to raise them. Plus, if the government goes broke they can give everyone the choice of:

      Do you really want to raise taxes on the “job creators?”

      Can we really afford these “entitlements” you call Social Security and Medicare? Don’t they need to be cut, I mean “reformed?”

      It’s all a long con. The sad part is that no one on the left can actually win that argument vs. a friggin’ orange idiot. That’s the saddest most frustrating thing to me. They are stealing all the gains the middle class made after the Great Depression and in broad fucking daylight. The people most likely to be hurt are ironically the most likely to assent to it, albeit unwittingly.

          Last I saw, tax cuts paid for themselves in the sense that the govt is taking in more revenues than before. Same thing happened under Reagan. Problem 1 is we won’t cut spending which more than offsets the new revenues and interest payments on the debt are rising. Problem 2 is when the gig is up, we can only hike taxes so much before the economy goes into recession and we actually lose tax revenue. If the govt defaults on debt payments, that would create another financial crisis.

      The issue is that the only spending cut that is actually popular with the American public is Foreign Aid. Americans, especially Baby Boomers, lover government spending. They just hate paying taxes. They are really Hamiltonian while pretending to be Jeffersonian.

      The Baby Boomers ascended into political dominance around 1980. At the time, the national debut was approximately $1T. They voted for all of the spending and all of the tax cuts. This has led to a debt of $22,027,434,332,952.25 as of yesterday. That is $21T (plus interest!) that those fuckers stole from future generations. Unfortunately, Boomers are still in political power as GenX is small. We are waiting for you to die, and your death is a necessary step to fixing our problems as the Boomers are the impediment to getting anything done.

      Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the Military, and the Interest on the Debt take up more than 100% of revenue. Every single dollar of non-Defense Discretionary Spending is borrowed. In order to make any progress on controlling spending increase will have to come from one of those programs. Politically, you can’t touch any of them. I have a very simple solution though. End Medicare. Boomers refused to pay for the healthcare of their parents (i.e. the deficit spending required to pay for Medicare in the past), so we should refuse to pay for their healthcare. When they can’t afford healthcare, they will die off quickly due to being morbidly obese lard-asses with type-2 diabetes and clogged arteries. Their timely deaths will also elevate the high amounts of money spent on Social Security benefits. In 10 years we would be running a huge surplus.

      With that surplus, we can then redesign our Retirement and and Health Care systems to be funded by prior investment instead of taxation / debt. All it takes is letting the worst generation of people in American history get what they deserve.

        You can’t blame the national debt entirely on the boomers. It was their grandparents who voted for FDR and social security and their parents who voted for LBJ and Medicare. Just those two programs are over $100 trillion in the red. Taxes can’t get high enough to pay for those programs.

          As I noted in my first post, the total federal debt first hit $1T in 1981. It is now over $22T. If you eliminated all the debt accrued before the Reagan Administration, you would get back to the same debt level we have now sometime around the Superbowl.

          Even then, up until the Boomers ascended into power, previous generations had been lowering the Debt to GDP ratio at a steady clip. Older generations were funding their spending by having reasonable rates of taxation on the middle-class. Then, middle-class Boomers decided they shouldn’t have to pay taxes. Now more than 85% of income taxes are paid by 20% of the population. That is how you get this:

          Social Security and Medicare aren’t 100T in the red, they have $100T in unfunded liabilities that the Boomers voted for themselves. In my plan, we don’t pay that $100T. Instead, we let those freeloaders die.

            Not exactly. You’re looking at debt and assuming it’s a tax problem. It’s not. Tax revenue has gone from 7% of gdp in 1900 to 33% of gdp today. But spending has far outpaced the revenue.
            And proposing to kill everyone is good for a laugh, but it’s not happening. So entitlement programs put in place by the Boomer’s grandparents will continue until it’s impossible to continue.

              Debt is neither a taxation problem nor a spending problem. It is a conscious act of deciding to spend more than you are willing to pay in taxation. I’m no fan of Social Security or Medicare; I would love to see massive spending cuts. As I said before, the Boomer’s Grandparents created the programs, but they were willing to fund them. In fact, they funded them while paying down the debt in terms of the Debt to GDP ratio. We have known about the upcoming unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare for decades. What did the Boomers propose as the solution? Oh yeah, cutting their taxes again while creating new unfunded programs for themselves like Medicare Part D.

              You might not be able to notice a modest proposal when you see one. That is fine. My more general point is that other generations should not let the Boomers get a free ride. They didn’t fund their parents retirement / healthcare; we should feel no sympathy for any haircut we make those freeloading bastards take.

                Still incorrect. The government can’t just decide to raise taxes to 150% of gdp in order to pay for excessive spending. The only option is to cut spending.

                And the entitlement programs are Ponzi schemes. They were designed that way. The early investors always come out best in Ponzi schemes. That’s not laudable. You don’t blame late comers for their failure to keep the scam going. The blame more appropriately lies with the creators of the scheme. Especially when the schemes are mandatory. Bernie Madoff never had the luxury of the IRS collecting at the point of a gun for him.

                  Go back to trolling the lefties, Boner. You keep missing the god damn point. For some stupid reason you think I am advocating increasing taxes as the solution. My “solution” was a “modest” proposal, that was entirely spending cuts, so that I could shit on Boomers which was the entire point of my post. I am talking about how we went from $1T to $21T in debt in less than 40 years. We got there, not because Boomers only spent too much. They could have easily kept their taxation policy in balance with their spending, but they didn’t. Boomers voted for every round of tax cuts in full knowledge that it would exacerbate the debt. The fuckers didn’t care. Again, I am talking about historical fact. I am not talking about the future. When you reply to this post talking about how spending cuts are the only solution, I’m going to tell you to blow it out your ass.

                    Yes, I got your joke about letting boomers die. Whatever. That’s not the part of your post I have problems with. It’s your constant attention to cash flow while ignoring the exponential growth of liabilities. When the federal debt goes to $100 trillion in 30 years, will you blame Gen X? Or will you recognize that the Ponzi scheme is defaulting because that’s what Ponzi schemes do.

    From the oh so librul Forbes magazine:

    “Donald Trump listed $1.2 billion of losses on his tax filings from 1985 to 1994, according to a blockbuster report released by the New York Times Tuesday. Those were high-flying years for Trump, then a young, brash businessman getting more headlines-per-square-foot than any other developer. In 1985, Trump appeared by himself on the Forbes 400 list of America’s richest people for the first time, after inventing a fake persona to lie about a transfer of wealth from his father.

    Forbes fell for that ruse—taking Fred Trump off the list and listing Donald alone. But five years later, we published an explosive story, uncovering the trouble brewing inside Trump’s empire. Leaning on nonpublic documents, Forbes writers Richard L. Stern and John Connolly identified the same sort of profitability problems that are still making headlines 29 years later. Forbes took Donald Trump off its list for the first time that year, explaining that a “decline in Atlantic City gaming revenues, unmasking of misstated asset values, declining real estate values and massive debt may have put The Donald within hailing distance of zero.”

    It’s all a con… Always has been.

I’m very glad to live in a country that can and will function very well in spite of “The most important position in the world”.
      I will say this, the tax changes (I don’t know what they are, I have an accountant that does) for 2018 makes it the first year in 20 that I don’t have to pay additional taxes. If the Donald was responsible for that, well, I guess a thank you is in order. That doesn’t change my view of his character.
      MAGA my ass. America has always been great.
      I really really dislike politicians in general.

      • Hillary was the paragon of wisdom,morality and virtue……a strong smart woman who was just standing by her man while he humiliated her but they did accumulated a $400 million slush fund in the Clinton Foundation prior to her coronation. O wait ..what. That mean-spirited bitch hadn’t driven herself in a car for over 30 years and the driver was not on her payroll but ours or the Foundation’s. This so called smartest woman in the world flunked the bar. There is nothing to recommend either one of these two as your moral guru but at least with Trump what you see is what you get.
        I know a lot of people on the blog are lawyers but for those of you who aren’t you should know it is hard to fluke the bar if are not in one of these categories:
        1 attending an unaccredited law school ; 2 going through a family crisis ; 3 working full time while attending law school or 4 foolish enough to not take a Bar review course . This pants suit wearing moron did none of these things…she went to Yale for Christsakes , was the child of privilege and wealth with no job in law school and still flunked the Bar in D.C. but obviously passed the Arkansas bar…..that does not make her the smartest woman in America….it does make her one of the most duplicitous. You don’t vote for your hero ,unless your an idiot who actually idolizes a politician, you 99% of the time vote for the least bad option. Hello President Trump.

          Putin picked the same way you did.

          And he put his military intelligence on the mission.

          Do you often agree with our adversaries? Do you enjoy giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies?

          It seems to me that the issue is no longer Hillary vs. Trump its USA vs Putin.

          I see you’ve taken Putin’s side.

          Are you comfortable with being a traitor?

            Exactly. Mueller is in on it. They all are. Everybody but us, Derek. They’re all traitors.

          Btw the Mueller report says:

          Russia interfered
          Russia helped trump
          Russia hurt Clinton

          So Mueller is probably not “in on” the treason.

          If you deny that reality, then you’re in on it. With Putin and GRU. And you’re a traitor.

      You can tell Derek has never run a business. A business always wants to show the maximum loss on its tax returns. That has nothing to do with the success of the business. Don’t be mad at President Trump because he has better tax accountants than you.
