Sports Film Tournament


This will be a 64 film tournament. You can nominate up to four films today, hopefully that will get us to 64. If not, we will just nominate some more tomorrow. Traditional tournament rules will apply. I'll put all the films into a random bracket generator. You'll have to have seen both films to vote for them.

Get to nominating:

Bang the Drum Slowly (1973)
8 Seconds (1994)
The Champ (1979)
Real Steel (2011)

(I double-checked that these are all tagged as "Sport" on IMDB.)
If I answer a game thread correctly, just skip my turn and continue with the game.

The Hustler
Bull Durham

They say: that after people make love there's a kind of melancholia, the petite mort, the little death. Well, I'm here to tell you, after a romantic night with yourself there's a very acute sensation of failed suicide. ~Dylan Moran
