The results are in, and the LAMB has picked its Top 10 Sports Movies (for background on this, click here). There were a total of 25 voters, with their votes spread out amongst 102 films.
Surpisingly, this marks the second time (out of four Top 10 lists) where the film that received the most first-place votes failed to finish in first place. However, last time, it finished in the runner-up spot (The Big Lebowski to Monty Python and the Holy Grail), whereas here the film that pulled off that feat finished 5th! Also of note is that the film in question also placed 4th in the Comedy list (it places 5th here). Weird, wild stuff indeed.
Here are your winners (1st place votes in parentheses):
1. Bull Durham – 91 points from 12 votes (2)
So…how many did you vote for? If you’d like to see yours and all the other votes, scroll down. I’ve added a post with all of them, but have dated it prior to this post so it won’t clutter the page.
Others receiving 1st-place votes: Battlefield Baseball, Hoop Dreams, Major League, Personal Best, Pride of the Yankees, The Hustler, The Karate Kid Part II (!?!?), The Longest Yard, The Sandlot (2), and When We Were Kings.
For this last poll, I put the power of “Which genre is next?” in the voters’ hands. Their top selection? Westerns, with 4 votes. The poll is already up, and will be for two weeks – be sure to read the instructions. Go vote now so I don’t have to hassle you later! Thanks.
