Sports Movies

The spotlights were fixated on Los Angeles last night for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. As we watched Christian Bale and Melissa Leo win the Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards for “The Fighter” last night, it made us think of our favorite sports movies. Here are a few clips from our faorites sports movies for your enjoyment!

Wild Card Weekend Wrap Up

Heading into the Wild Card weekend…

 ·  The top six teams with the most playoff berths since 2000 were all in the playoffs:  Indianapolis (10), Philadelphia (9), New England (8), Baltimore (7), Green Bay (7) and Pittsburgh (7). 

·  A team (Kansas City) went from worst to first in its division for a record eighth consecutive season.

·  Aaron Rodgers threw for 423 yards and four TDs in the Pack’s playoff loss last year against Arizona.

After the Wild Card...

 ·  The upset:  For the first time in NFL history, a team with a losing record won a playoff game.  The 7-9 Seattle Seahawks stunned the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in a shootout, 41-36.

·  The nail-biter:  The Jets and Colts traded leads throughout the fourth quarter until a Jets field goal won the game as time expired.

·  The blowout:  The Ravens were dominant in three out of the four quarters to top the Chiefs 30-7.

·  The near come-back:  Mike Vick nearly led the Birds to a fourth quarter comeback, but fell short to the Pack, 21-16.

 Teams are preparing for what another exciting weekend of football.  Do you have the best gear to support your team?
