Comment from Elbeulah: Wow, a bunch come to mind. For movies, ROCKY and ROCKY II for sure. One I haven't seen moienentd is VICTORY, with Sly Stallone, Michael Caine, Max Von Sydow and a bunch of famous international soccer players, including Pele. It is about a game where a bunch of POWs play the German National Team for charity. The captain of the Germans is played by Werner Roth, another famous international player who came to play in the USA.Which takes me to my first documentary offering, ONCE IN A LIFETIME, which was about the New York Cosmos and soccer in the USA in the 70s. Even if you aren't a soccer fan it's a great documentary. Would 2nd Mr. Shea re: DOGTOWN AND Z-BOYS and add RIDING GIANTS (about surfing). Can't forget MURDERBALL. And for boxing, just watched RING OF FIRE: THE EMILE GRIFFITH STORY. And no list of sports documentaries is complete without WHEN WE WERE KINGS.
Comment from Wilab: Well, glad that Kinsella and Walter Tevis have been remembered (I hope no one wants to noitname the film version of THE COLOR OF MONEY, with the most inept performance imaginable by Tom Cruise). Now, recall William Campbell Gault, the king of all sports fiction...even more for his adult pulp stories than his later YA novels. Paul Bishop is usually suggesting more sports fiction, when not doing "men's adventure"/spy-fiction series, for FFB. For boxing, I always mention Michael Shaara's THE BROKEN PLACE among more famous novels (and his FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME is perhaps his only only other book, a chapbook in that case, that isn't historical fiction of sf). Barry Malzberg's UNDERLAY for horse racing, ahead even of Dick Francis.Films...well, lots. Documentary ROCKS WITH WINGS and the fictionalized version, EDGE OF AMERICA. The rather similar BELIEVE IN ME. PERSONAL BEST. HEART LIKE A WHEEL.
Comment from Bogoce: Breaking Away does count. It was a terrific movie, wasn't it?Chariots of Fire-was that the only one made about the Olympics other than that one about the US Hockey team. You can count the Big Lebowski in my book. Raging Bull is the best of the boinxg movies probably. Hoop Dreams is more about making it out of the slums than basketball. I just loved it. And the Coover book is brilliant.Jack Kerouac invented a similar system for a game he played. North Dallas Forty and Semi-Tough.I think sports' novels are really hard to pull off. It is so visual. http://tmyzfenqoeg.com [url=http://syidscor.com]syidscor[/url] [link=http://hbnwblt.com]hbnwblt[/link]
