Top 10 Sports Comedies

Here is my list of sporting comedies to get you thought the next sportless 2 weeks. I can only take so much Super Bowl sub plots and pro-bowl action before I’m ready to jump off my house into a snow bank.  Here Is my List

10. “Leatherheads” (2007) George Clooney and Jim from “The Office” play as one of the first teams in NFL history. This would be a little higher on my list normally, but Renee Zellweger was the love interest. This wouldn’t have been a bad move if it where 1997 and she didn’t look like a foot. The flick is worth watch, so strap it on and go rent Leatherheads.

9.”The Longest Yard” (2005) This Adam Sandler remake isn’t as bad as I first thought it would be, funnier then the original with respect paid to Burt Reynolds. This movie is fun for the whole family, if you all are inmates in a prison

8.”BASEketball” (1998) Matt Stone And Trey Parker invent a sport that even the laziest man in the world could compete at a high level. The movie is full of some of the best most offensive jokes, with a love story with some really hot chick. This movie made m laugh so hard I almost lost control of my bodily functions.

7. “Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby” (2006) this is a NASCAR Flick with the mind of Will Ferrell driving it. This movie was as entertaining then listening to a NASCAR fan describing his investment portfolio of lotto tickets and diecast Dale Earnhardt cars.

6.”Waterboy” (1998) This is a heart warming tail about a backwoods no nothing wowing the world of college football with his ability to light any one up on the football field. From Adam Sandler, Henry Winkler, to the chick from “Misery” who regrettably got naked in “About Schmidt”. This is a great movie from start to very predictable finish.

5.”Happy Gilmore” (1996) Adam Sandler makes another appearance on the list, this time he is a failed hockey player who has to learn how to golf from Apollo Creed to save his Grandmothers house. His Friends consider a Homeless Guy, and Jaws from the James Bond Films.  His enemies, Shooter McGavin, Bob Barker, and the head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

4.”Slap Shot” (1977) with Paul Newman, is the best Hockey movie of all time. You have the Hanson Brothers putting on the foil, more smoking, drinking, and swearing then on “the Real House Wives of New Jersey”. Save the team don’t save the team I could care less I was just wanted to get out of the movie with dry pants. Added bonus it was shot in Utica, New York

3.”The Replacements”(2000) this movie is easily Orlando Jones’s best work. Keanu Reeves plays ex Ohio State Quarterback Shane Falco who is a current scab player during an NFL like player lock out. This movie is fun and has a lot of hard hitting football action, as well as Neo from the Matrix and a hot chick that looks like Sandra Bullock, but she isn’t Sandra Bullock… that’s for sure.

2.”Major League” (1989) This is easily Charlie Sheen’s best work, and definitely was Corbin Bernsen’s (The guy who played Dorn). This move was more quotable then Yogi Berra giving the State of the Union Address.  I love this movie more then I love an all you can drink Coors Light night. I can’t turn the channel when it’s on, and I quote it to my friends in my sleep.

1.”Caddyshack” (1980) “So I jump ship in Hong Kong and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I’m a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald… striking. So, I’m on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one – big hitter, the Lama – long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga… gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he’s gonna stiff me. And I say, “Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.” And he says, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.” So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.”

Need I say more?
