It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 87

February 21, 2012

Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!

What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll, The Sidekick Comics has now closed. Click HERE to visit and see which animated sidekicks you voted as your favorites.

Thank you to everyone that voted in last week’s polls and made it fun with your comments!

In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “Sporty Stories”, takes a little glance at sport-related films. Do you like sports movies? When compared to actual sporting events, do you find them to be disappointing? I like sports movies myself, but I began to ask myself: “Which sports do I like more in movies?” and, “Do I like sports movies for the sports in them more than for the drama in them?”

Hmm.

So:

Today I ask you…

Place your votes. Leave a comment. If you had to choose the TOP SPORTS MOVIE OF ALL TIME, which would it be?

The poll closes on 2-28-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

    I’ve gone for Boxing only. I was trying to decide between the others, but couldn’t think of more than one film I could say I really liked. So, decided to stay safe. And probably mess up your poll 😉

      I was wondering why it was all messed up. I voted, and then I was like… wait! This is all messed up!

      Jaina, you didn’t mess up the poll! haha. No way possible to do that! Thanks for voting. I actually wasn’t sure if boxing would receive any votes and instead it got the first one!

    I would say Hockey could be in its own category! Miracle, Slap Shot, heck even the Mighty Ducks!

    I don’t really like sports movies to be perfectly honest. Boxing in particular has been done to death. That’s because there is a lot of drama associated with it. Baseball also has been done a lot, because it allows for paused dramatic moments. Its not constantly moving, like hockey or soccer. Hockey usually has to have penalty shots in order to achieve this dramatic pause. Football is also good for drama since its good at having various dramatic situations in a game, and also has the benefit of a “huddle” pause.

    Football and baseball for me, although admittedly I haven’t seen too many basketball films. I am a big sucker for sports documentaries though — especially ESPN’s 30 for 30 series.

    Not a big fan of sports movies, so I only picked one, which was boxing as that has given us some memorable/enjoyable movies (Rocky, Warrior, Raging Bull). Don’t really watch football/baseball related movies as I’m not interested in these sports (although I did check out Moneyball because of the Oscar buzz).

    I’m going for Baseball just because I love Jerry Maguire a lot. Sports movies tend to be motivating, because you can see their efforts physically (well, a lot sports movies I’ve seen). Great topic!

      did you mean football?: Jerry Maguire? Either way you are right about the films being motivational and highly physical. Thanks for voting.

    Although I love watching NBA, MOTOGP and OLIMPIC but I never find watching sport movies as an enjoyable watch. I did like The Replacement and Hardball…but the reason is not the sport, it is the main actor…the handsome Keanu Revees 😉

    I watched Jerry Macquire (I am sure I spelled it wrongly) long time ago and couldn’t understand what’s so good about that movie

    There is a movie called Wimbledon, not so good, I watched it because Paul Bettany is in it.

      of course, Paul Bettany would be the reason you’d watch it! 😉
