By | 13 Comments

After last week’s venture into uncharted Air Bud territory, I wanted this week to be all about some of my favorite sports movies that I’ve ever seen, as we head into these last few weeks of this <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> venture.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Cool Runnings’

By | 37 Comments

A funny thing happened along the way to writing today’s installment of <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a>, as I told a friend that I was watching the 1993 Disney comedy Cool Runnings and he responded, “Oh, the guy who wrote that movie <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1jd679/i_am_tommy_swerdlow_writer_of_cool_runnings/" target="_blank">just did an AMA on Reddit</a>.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘White Men Can’t Jump’

Declaring any one movie the greatest basketball movie of all-time would be an exercise in futility, as there are simply way too many good hoops movies that have been made over the years.

Now that we’re done poisoning my already slightly-below-average brain functions with <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/air-bud" target="_blank">the entire Air Bud series</a> – congratulations to star Kevin Zeger on his engagement this weekend.

My exact thought to myself on Monday morning was, “God, I’m handsome.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Air Bud: Golden Receiver’

By | 9 Comments

Yesterday, I decided that I’d devote this week’s installments of <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> to watching and possibly <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2013/07/73-sports-movies-in-73-days-air-bud-world-pup" target="_blank">celebrating the entire Air Bud series</a>, as there were five films (not counting the Air Buddies spin-off franchise) and five days in a work week, and I took College Algebra three times, so it works out pretty well.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: 'Air Bud'

One of the things that I love most about any movie is the ability to avoid nonsensical back stories.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Teen Wolf’

I was hoping to sit on Teen Wolf a little longer for the stretch run of <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a>, not because it’s a movie that I particularly like or even remotely care about, but because it is one that has always left me scratching my head.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘The Sandlot’ (Special 20th Anniversary Edition)

By | 41 Comments

Back in May, the news that the Great Hambino and Squints (real names: ummmmm…) from The Sandlot <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2013/06/ham-and-squints-from-the-sandlot-reunited-at-a-twins-game-last-month" target="_blank">stopped by the broadcast booth</a> during a rained out Minnesota Twins/Boston Red Sox game went mostly unnoticed, but it still eventually reminded us that this year marks the 20th anniversary of that beloved baseball movie.

I was going to have to scrape the bottom of the barrel eventually in this <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> feature eventually, so I figured why not today.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Kingpin’

By | 47 Comments

As some readers, Twitterers and strangers in my Turkish bathhouse have pointed out, there has been a very strange and presumably coincidental trend on cable TV lately, with the random HBO, Cinemax and Showtime channels airing some of these movies that I’ve written about for this <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> feature within a day or two of posting.

Originally, when I made my first list of movies to watch for this <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> exercise in making me a much dumber person than I already am, I realized that I almost completely excluded martial arts movies.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Juwanna Mann’

By | 4 Comments

One of the things that I wanted to make sure to do in this voyage of <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> was be a little more revealing about my own taste in movies and so-called comedy, because while it’s fun to remember <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2013/07/73-sports-movies-in-73-days-baseketball" target="_blank">how much most of us loved</a> BASEketball or make fun of people <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2013/07/73-sports-movies-in-73-days-bring-it-on" target="_blank">for their nostalgic love</a> of Bring It On, it’s only fair that I also let it be known that I’m just as much of a schmuck as everybody else, and I have terrible taste sometimes, too.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Ed’

As I’ve stated several times before, one of the goals of this quest to watch <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> is to watch older movies that I’ve never watched before, either because I avoided them like the plague or because I just never got around to them.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘Bring It On’

By | 34 Comments

I wasn’t too thrilled with <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2013/07/73-sports-movies-in-73-days-the-scout" target="_blank">yesterday’s edition</a> of <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> because I was pretty bummed that I didn’t like The Scout as much as I once did, so I wanted to have a fresh perspective today with a sports movie that I’ve never seen.

73 Sports Movies In 73 Days: ‘The Scout’

By | 9 Comments

As I’ve mentioned several times already in this quest to fill the time leading up to the 2013 NFL season, a lot of the <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/73-sports-movies-in-73-days" target="_blank">73 Sports Movies in 73 Days</a> that I’ve been watching are films that I’ve watched before, but it has been so long since I’ve watched some of them that I don’t remember if they were truly good films or not.
