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.
