We Are Marshall (2006)

Apologies for taking so long to post this. I was out of town. My parents were in town. And then, every time I sat down to write this post, I started to cry because this week's movie is We Are Marshall and dammit if you don't cry in the first 20 minutes.

Ice Castles (1978)

Ice Castles, the story of Lexi Winston: "a girl who refused forget she was once a champion."

Except that for a painful 30 minutes in the middle of the movie, she did forget that she was a champion. Once. She literally won once.

The first movie on the list. So chosen because it encapsulates several of the core values of Inspirational Sports Movies: based on a true story, underdog makes good, slow clap, death, montages.

Ladies and Gents, I present to you....RUDY
