Guest Blog - Sports Movies (Keri Mikulski) & Giveaway

In honor of the blog tour for her new book, Head Games, I asked Keri Mikulski to share with us some of her favorite sports movies. Here's what she had to say...

My Top Three Favorite Sporty Movies

1. Love and Basketball
The best sports movie of all time! A little bit of Vision Quest, but with a female lead, basketball action, and plenty of romance!

2. Vision Quest
A perfect mix of an underdog sports story and romance. Check out the Matthew Modine jumping rope scene -- yum! :)

3. A League of Their Own
Total classic! Best line ever -- "there's no crying in baseball."

Honorable Mentions:
Bend It Like Beckham,
The Natural,
Blue Crush,
Cutting Edge, 
Whip It,
and Gracie.

I cannot wait to check out the new Reese Witherspoon movie, How Do You Know? Witherspoon plays an ex-Olympic softball player.

Thanks so much for sharing your list with us, Keri! Also, to go along with the theme of this post, Keri is giving a $10 Blockbuster gift card to one lucky commenter on this post. You have until Jan. 25th to comment & enter.

  5. I haven't seen any of those movies either. Does Fever Pitch count as a sports movie? I really liked that one...
