1st Round
Caddyshack - "It's got to be Caddyshack. How can you possibly go against that?"
Winner Rocky - "The greatest sports movie of all-time. Is there any question? It stood the test of time. It had me drinking raw eggs out of a blender. You can see all the good it did me."
2nd Round
Winner Slapshot - "Sports are all about comedy, as well as human drama. Slapshot combines one of the greatest actors of all-time, Paul Newman, a ridiculous cast."
Field of Dreams - "What a message it sends about chasing dreams, about baseball, the beauty of baseball, fathers and sons, everything else."
3rd Round
Raging Bull - "You want a little seriousness? Give me Raging Bull. I'll take that over Rocky."
Winner Hoosiers - "How is this on the board in the third round? Both of us should be humiliated."
4th Round
Winner Major League - "How can you go against Major League? This is appointment viewing up and down the line."
The Bad News Bears - "Maybe my favorite sports movie ever...the original one. Anybody who ever played little league baseball can relate to it."
5th Round
Winner The Mighty Ducks - "The Mighty Ducks is an all-time cult movie for anyone my age. It's the underdog story with kids and Emilio Estevez."
Sandlot - "We can kind of tell a difference between me and you in this draft. I'm a little bit deeper than you, you're very surface level. How is Sandlot on the board in the fifth round?
6th Round
Winner Miracle - "How can we not get the movie that tried to chronicle the greatest upset in American sports history?"
Rudy - "I'm going with this and it's either going to win me the draft or lose me the draft. As surface level and as shallow as you are, even you dropped a tear when you watched this movie."

The Winner Is

Winner Chris Mueller
4 out of 6

This was one of the hardest decisions we've had to make. All the movies picked are of high quality. We had to put it to a vote in the office and Chris Mueller came out on top by a narrow margin.

  1. NEW YORK, UNITED STATES: (FILES)This undated file photo shows US baseball star Jackie Robinson as he signs a then-record contract to play for the Brooklyn Dodgers in New York. Robinson has been chosen to receive posthumously the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest award Congress can bestow on a US civilian, 02 March 2005, for his accomplishments on the baseball diamond, as well as "his lifetime of breaking down barriers and his unending fight for justice," officials on Capitol Hill said in an earlier press release. US Senator John Kerry and US Representative Richard Neal, who co-sponsored legislation honoring Robinson, will be joined by the ballplayer's widow Rachel Robinson, US President George W. Bush and congressional leaders at the ceremony. Robinson broke baseball's "color line", becoming the first African American to play in the Major Leagues when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Officials in Congress said however that he is also being honored for his contributions to the broader struggle for civil rights. (Photo Credit: Mike Powell/Getty Images)
