Welcome to Hustle & Pro, Season 2, talking sports and Frisco from youth to pro. Now here’s your host, Kelly Walker.
Welcome to today’s Hustle & Pro. We’ve got a special episode for you. So, I ask all my guests, “what’s your favorite sports movie?” And that’s what we’re going to talk about today. So, I have Daniel Rentie and Brandon May with me to run down some sports movie talk here. So, I was curious to kind of know what different athletes’ favorite sports movies were just to sort of get a different variety and it’s been fun hearing from them. Um, so, I’ve got stuff on the, on the list. Maybe that’s where we’ll kind of jump off from, guys. Um, let’s see. Rocky is one of them. Um, and that’s, I’ve only had one person note that. So, I don’t know if that’s anybody on anybody else’s list. But, um, this next one is a big one. So, I meant, I think we should start there. So, Remember The Titans was like the number one, I think that, yeah – that was the number one most answered question of all of my guests this past season of what’s-your-favorite-sports-movie. So, was Remember the Titans on either of y’all’s sports list or movie list?
It made it. Remember The Titans made it for me. Yeah. I thought about Rocky. But, I didn’t put on there. I love Rocky, but it’s not like my top if that makes sense. So, I know that might be very, very controversial, you know.
With Remember The Titans. I’m wondering the majority of the people that answered that, what age they were.
Yeah, it’s a variety. But, most of them are like, um, if I can remember right’s, legends players and, um, gosh, different high school- it’s, it’s everybody, though, actually. Yeah. It’s not just our-age people. Yeah. But, um, so, I have to admit- so, y’all, have a list on mine as never seen in full from start to finish that I can like remember actually knowing the whole movie and that’s online. So, I know what Remember The Titans is. I know pieces of it. But, I it’s like one of my – kind of embarrassed to admit that I haven’t sat down from start to finish and actually like meant to watch that movie.
Full disclosure mine is Caddyshack. Oh, Caddyshack. Yeah. I know the iconic scenes and I’ve heard the quotes. But, I’ve never sat down and watched it from beginning to end.
That surprises me because that seems like humor you would like.
Oh, I think it’s hilarious. I just never thought to myself, “I’m going to sit down and watch that.”
So, when I watch Caddyshack now, I mean, I don’t set out to like, “let’s watch Caddyshack as a family, guys.” ‘Cause it’s really weird. It makes me really uncomfortable. It’s one of those that, it’s just, there’s a lot of stuff in it that is so not appropriate nowadays and just, just different things going on in there. So, it’s one of those that I know I like, I giggle at it and I laugh at it. But, I’m also like a little uncomfortable when I watch that one.
So, with remember the Titans, what do you think? Because it was so popular with the majority of the people. What do you think it is that resonates, that makes that one of their favorites. Have they, have they explained it?
It’s on your list, Daniel.
It. I mean, I think that’s, I think it’s very multifaceted. I mean, it’s, it’s very on the deep end there because I think, one, people like a good war story connects things like how they talk about the Battle of Gettysburg. Um, and two, the biggest thing was the unifying of two different teams into one from separate parts of town and the whole segregation and everything that they overcame to come together. And it was, it was very practical as far as the, I guess, the leadership, the importance of leadership and setting the example of unity. I think people love the unifying part of it is more so of the, more than the sports achievement. But, I think it was just mainly that, that message, I think. Coming together as a team, coming together, despite all adversity.
And don’t you think that’s kind of a common theme with a lot of these. Because it’s- especially with football movies, it’s not about the actual football in the movie. Right. It’s usually- football movies are, are kind of, um, hard to watch for the football, right? Because it’s, it’s so dramatized, uh, six seconds on the clock is just, it’s hard to watch that and actually try to make that look like a real football scene or something. But, um, it’s always for like that, uh, that team comradery rather than, “Oh my gosh, are they going to win this or not,” to me, for me. I don’t know, so.
That was the best part. About Friday Night Lights.
That was- I was about to say the exact same thing.
Spoiler alert: they don’t win. Um, but, you got to see what they went through over the course of the whole season, the town being against them because they thought they were terrible, fire the coach, putting for sale signs out in his front yard and all that kind of stuff. Like, “man, you guys are ruthless.” But, yeah. To your point though, because I was thinking the same thing. My favorite sport is basketball. I don’t have any real favorite basketball movies. Oh, really? That’s such a difficult sport to replicate authentically on screen. Yeah. So, like, because you have to either find guys who know how to play basketball and then hope they can act. Right. Or find someone who can really act and hope they know how to play basketball.
Yeah. Are you saying Michael Jordan and Shaq aren’t good actors? I’m just kidding.
Yeah. I’m just gonna leave that one alone. White Men Can’t Jump. And then, um, and then He Got Game is where you actually were able to find that crossover with Ray Allen. But, really the best basketball movie is Hoop Dreams ’cause it’s a documentary. So, it’s not about acting. It’s, it’s about following these basketball players as they’re trying to rise up.
Hoop Dreams is really good. But that documentary tier, um, is like, like Through The Fire, Sebastian Telfair, was really good. I know Allen Iverson’s, um, and in LeBron’s More Than A Game and um,
But that’s because like they’re not, it’s not dramatized. It’s not a script.
But I will get Friday Night Lights credit because I think it’s the most accurate to- I think they did a good job of making things physically comparable. Right. Like the hard hits and the blood and like- their scenes were a lot more realistic than like, Remember The Titans and I mean- more credit, too, ’cause that’s like you said, it’s a hard balance to find. Either athletes that can act or actors that are athletes. But, that’s interesting to think about. I actually found my list to be more basketball-heavy, um, which was my big bias. But, I was looking, I was like, man, I only love basketball movies.
Okay. Let me guess. Let me guess. Because based on some of what my guests said, um, there were a lot of basketball movies. Um, let’s see the most-answered basketball movie was Love & Basketball, which I had never of. I realized my sports-movie diversity is really bad. I have no hardly any basketball movies on mine. Glory Road, Blue Chips, Like Mike Love & Basketball, Coach Carter and I don’t want to ruin this one because, Daniel Rentie, you have been on my podcast before as a guest. And your answer to your favorite sports movie was:
Space Jam. I’m willing to die on a hill and say that it is the greatest sports movie of all time. You know what? I will give you that.
Okay. So, that’s fine. So, tell us why.
Oh, um, man, and this was a movie for context. I used to annoy my family with this movie. Um, I don’t know. I mean, you guys have kids. So, you guys know when your kid has that movie. For me, it was maybe two or three times a day I would watch Space Jam. I would be crying if I didn’t have Space Jam. I was the youngest in my family. And so, like, if I saw my sister was watching television and I wanted to watch Space Jam, I would throw a fit just so I can watch Space Jam. And everybody would be like, “just let Daniel watch the Space Jam. Everything will be fine.” That is my like- so, Michael Jordan’s my favorite player. So, that’s one thing. And then obviously I loved Looney Tunes at the time. So, that merging was, was great. But, um, this is what I’m about to say is really, really crazy because I think it’s helped shape me a little, uh, a point to shaping me a little bit to what I care about and believe, cause I’ve watched it so many times. Um, but, Michael Jordan, like, came from his, his high place of playing at the top tier in the NBA and humbled himself to come down to help the Looney Tunes in a battle that would put them in slavery, in a Looney Tune world. And so, he stepped down to help them win a game. No, really it’s crazy scary. ‘Cause one time I was at like this business thing and they were talking about how your favorite movie might have something to do with like your character because you have watched it over and over and over and over again. And I was like, “Wow, that was so humble of Michael Jordan to step down from playing at the highest level to help the Looney Tunes in a battle. It was, it was really, really cool.
Okay, you have seen that on a different level.
I’ve seen it way too many times.
So, you’ve changed my mind. You have. It’s a very convincing argument. My dislike of that movie is very surface-level. Any alien that thinks that Shawn Bradley has the talent you need to win a game- that’s the Maverick’s mind. Yeah. And I’m a Sean Bradley apologist.
Now I have to go watch it with kids and rewatch it, like re-see it from that angle to enjoy and appreciate what you’ve seen in it.
You’ve opened a world.
Some of it is the age range, too. So, that was a ’96 movie. So, I was finishing high school and like moving onto a different part of my life and not, you know, into that. Right, yeah. So, you’re much younger than me. So, I can totally see how that’s just in your wheelhouse of like that’s where, what you were staring at at the TV at the time. So, that’s awesome. Okay. So, I- so, my list, when I was making my list for today, I realized, um, “My list is all one sport and it ain’t basketball or football.” So, yeah, it’s baseball.
I have a theory. So, give me the list.
Okay, here’s my list. Um, Field Of Dreams, which I know some people that’s on their worst list cause they’re so it’s, it’s, it’s the Rudy thing comes into play where it’s so unrealistic, you can’t enjoy it. But, not for me. I love it. I just think it’s cool. Um, League of Their Own is on my list because I’m a softball player and I just loved the whole idea of that movie. 42 is on my list. That is something, one that I watch over and over and every year. Um, Sandlot is on my list. Yep. And Moneyball, because once that, yeah, once that came out, like I just like the breaking down part of the, the statistical breaking-down of all that. And I just thought that was an interesting way for them to explain that story. And um, and I like Ron Washington too. And then he’s in that. Um, but, but ,yeah. So, like I was realizing, “Man, they’re all baseball movies.” And, okay. Tell me your theory. I, I know why. But, tell me why you think, you, you think, you know why I have baseball movies?
No, I think the reason why baseball movies translate in contrast to what I was saying about basketball movies, where it’s hard to replicate that. Baseball movies, just the sport itself, lends itself to so much downtime that you have to tell a story in between each batter, in between each pitch, in between each managerial decision. You don’t have to focus entirely. Basketball is up and down, back and forth the entire game and baseball is a leisure. And so, during that time you have to build a story. So, you don’t have to rely so much on whether this guy can pitch, catch or hit. Yeah. You just have to rely on “how are we getting through this?” And then, obviously, the downtime, too. My number one movie all time, all time-
Hold on. Is it baseball?
Yeah. Okay. Bull Durham. Yeah. That’s it because it’s less about-
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait Daniel, you haven’t seen it? Okay. It’s it’s it’s fun.
If you turn me on Space Jam, I’m going to turn you on Bull Durham.
Bull Durham was, um, one of the popular answers of our podcast guests, too. Um, and it’s on my- I don’t think I know it from start to- like I couldn’t really tell you the whole story of the whole movie myself, either. So, Brandon, tell us why it’s your top movie.
So, Bull Durham was written, uh, by a guy named Ron Shelton who used to play Minor League ball. He also did- he wrote White Men Can’t Jump. He wrote Tin Cup. But, he’s a sports movie guy. Um, but, Bull Durham works because it’s a Minor League baseball team. They don’t have any money. It’s just, they’re riding the bus. So, it’s less about like the game of baseball and more about just what these young guys are going through, trying to achieve their goals. The kicker is Kevin Costner’s character is the end-of-his-career catcher who gets sent to the team to help mentor their young, but erratic, pitcher. So, it’s like this father-and-son relationship. But, they butt heads because the young guy thinks, “Well, I throw the heat,” you know? Um, there’s, “I’m trying to announce myself. Yeah. I’m trying to announce my presence with authority.” And was like, “yeah, but, fast balls are fascists.” Like they have this big back-and-forth. And so, the young guy thinks that the other guy’s being a jerk, but he’s saying, “No, this is how I’m going to break you down to where you finally realize.” Hmm. And so, you know, eventually he starts to become successful. But then, it’s just a whole parade of shenanigans along the way of what happened. Like the guy’s retired. They’re just, they’ve been playing 10 games in 10 nights and they’d been on the bus. We just need a break. And Kevin Costner’s savvy character is like, “Oh, you want a rainout? I can get your rainout.” And they sneak into the ballpark and set off the sprinklers and saturate the field. And so, it’s just all of those kinds of things that only could have come from the experience of somebody who used to play Minor League baseball. Yeah. So, again, it was, and that’s why I love it. It’s because it’s less about how authentic the play is, opposed to how authentic the experiences and the lifestyle. And it’s also hilarious. I mean, it’s just, it’s a really funny movie. There’s they, they go down to the pitching mound and it’s not even about like, “Okay, what are we going to throw to this guy?” They’re talking about, “Well, so-and-so is getting married. We haven’t bought him a gift. What, what gifts should we buy? Well, candlesticks are nice. Everyone likes candles.”
When I watch baseball I think about that stuff all the time. I’m like, “What do you think they’re actually talking about?” Right. But, that’s why I think baseball movies work. Because psychologically, baseball movies are totally different. Some of it’s not about, like, the actual game moments. I mean with Field Of Dreams at the top of my list, it’s not really about a moment of a game and are they about to win a game. It has nothing to do with that. It’s my, um, my baseball stuff, I think goes back to so much of this, like connects me with childhood stuff, especially with my dad because my dad coached me playing. And so, like Field Of Dreams with the connection with his father and it, and you know, all the legacy players and everything is cool to watch. But, I just like that part of it. Like, I remember my childhood stuff growing up and then, of course, the player side and like A League Of Their Own, I liked the actual ball that’s being played in it ’cause it’s cool to see like Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell and these random actresses do, you know, this sport that I like to do. So, that’s why I love League Of Their Own. Every time it comes on, I, I have to watch it. Um, and 42’s on my list just because it’s super powerful and there’s really good baseball stuff within it. But, it’s obviously the historical message is just like overwhelming every time I watch it. Um, okay. I have a question. Do you guys have any movies that like, that you have to watch when you’re on- when you’re browsing your channels and you see that it’s on, you like can’t not click on and watch ’cause, ’cause here are some of mine. Well, Rudy, I mentioned Rudy. I just, I don’t know. It depends on what part it’s on. Some, some of it’s kind of boring parts for me. But, most of the Rudy show, like, I need to watch those scenes. Okay. Jerry Maguire. Like, when I see that on, I just have to watch it. Especially, if it’s anywhere near the scene with him and Bob Sugar on the phone fight, trying to get their clients to commit to them. Right. And he gets down to the, yeah, he gets down to the, to the one Rod Tidwell call, right? And then it’s the “Ants are crawling up my wall” and the “Show me the money” scene. Like, it’s this long drawn-out scene. But, like, that’s one of my favorite. It’s not even, like, specifically sports-related but sports movie scenes, because it’s just great and funny. And the buildup to it is so great. Um, do you all like Jerry Maguire? Yeah. Happy Gilmore is on my fly-by list to where it’s just silly and funny. And when it’s on, like, just see what part it’s on to see what it-
Okay. So, you want to see your favorite, funny part, type of thing?
Yeah, just kind of, like, I dunno. You just have to click on it to see because it’s one of those movies that you have seen so many times that you’re just like, “Okay, well, what? Is this, the beginning of this, the middle? Like, you just like, I can’t not go click in and see where they are in it.
Um, I agree with just in general, when it comes to movies, if it is a movie that I’ve seen multiple times, I will click on it because I know I’m not missing anything. But, if it’s a brand new movie that I’m like, “Oh, I’d really like to see that. Oh man, it’s 30 minutes in.” I don’t want to watch it because I’m going to miss the first part. Yeah, you need to see the whole thing. It’s like when Shawshank Redemption shows up every time on TNT. Like, Oh, I will. Okay. This is when they’re painting the roof. Yeah. And then you move on.
Give it a minute. Yeah, and watch. So, Karate Kid is on my list, too. And I don’t know if it’s a good movie or not, to be honest. I don’t know. Which version of it? Original. ’84 version. But like, it’s one that I just want to see what they’re doing. Like, is this a big moment in that? ‘Cause there was a lot of downtime in that movie, too. But, but that’s one. And then, um, the last one on my fly-by that I was thinking of is The Blind Side. So, I do have some football movies on there. Um, but I just, I don’t know. I always think that that movie’s fascinating also to watch and, and again, it’s um, like I dunno why. I just think it’s funny that Tim McGraw is in that movie and I love Sandra Bullock. So, um, and I like the, the football story obviously in that one, too. So, do y’all have any of those kinds of movies that, that you’ve seen so much? You just have to pop in and see.
Out of, like, out of respect. Um, I would say that’s definitely Space Jam, Love & Basketball. Um, He Got Game. Um, for some reason it’s just different for me because of, of Ray Allen and being in it. Like, if it, if Blue Chips is on, I don’t necessarily have to stop and watch. Same for Coach Carter or- Friday Night Lights I think I’ve watched so much that it’s just like, I don’t think I have to stop it. Yeah. Um, I’m the type of person once I’ve seen it, I don’t always like rewatch every time. But- on Friday Night Lights, did you prefer the TV series over the movie or did you even watch the TV series? Both are equally good. Okay. Um, that’s tough because I love the longevity of the TV series and how they were able to do a backstory. But, um, man, that’s, I don’t know. They don’t seem to, to me. Yeah. But, I would say those are ones I would just stop every time and watch. White Men Can’t Jump. Yeah.
That was just on the other day. Yep. Um, I can add Talladega Nights to that. So, it’s so stupid that it’s like, “Okay. I mean, what’s Will Farrell all up to right now,” you know.
It’s almost like they put a spectrum where you have Days of Thunder and then they went all the way to the other end with Talladega Nights. Right. It’s about the same sport. And then one is just absolutely ridiculous. And the other one is like all intense and hard-hitting.
Okay. What else? Anybody have any, um, any other movies? I have one random obscure, random that I’m betting you guys have never heard of that I want to mention.
Like, I know you haven’t. There’s no way because I couldn’t even remember it. This is something we watched when we were little. Now, disclosure: I was a gymnast first. My parents owned a gymnastics place. And so, my sisters and I were all competitive gymnasts for a while. So, this is a gymnastics movie. It’s called American Anthem. It came out in 1986 with Mitch Gaylord who was an actual, like, Olympian story of his, um, of his life. So, it was one that we used to watch over and over. It’s so bad. It’s like him doing high bar in a barn kind of thing. Um, but, the funny, the funny notes. So, when I was thinking about this- and I called my sister, “Oh, do you remember watching that movie?” – um, so the, uh, one of the main characters, the wife or the woman in that show is Wayne Gretzky’s wife, which is, I didn’t even know. She was in all the Police Academy movies. Yeah. And then when I looked that up, she’s also in a League Of Their Own. So, like, it all came full circle. Yeah. She was some obscure, like pitcher, a character or something. But anyway, so, that’s my random movie note that, that I want to educate you guys on because I’m sure you guys did not sit down and watch it gymnastics movie, like that one. Yeah.
And that’s available on Netflix? I doubt it’s available anywhere. All right. So, I’ve got an obscure one for you then, because when I was making my list, I asked my wife, what’s your favorite sports movie? And she said, Quarterback Princess, which was a made-for-TV movie, starring Helen Hunt as the prom-queen-slash-quarterback of a football team back in like ’83 or something. I had never heard of it. So, I researched it. And I was like, yeah, that looks like, in all due respect, really bad. Yeah. That’s gotta be bad. So, we have American Anthem, Quarterback Princess. Daniel, do you have any?
Mine. Mine is more of like a guilty pleasure. Uh-oh. Is it, Bring It On? It’s Bring It On. It’s Bring It On. So, here’s the thing. My sister used to watch it all the time. And, um, at first I was completely opposed to, like, “Oh man, we’ll, watch Bring It On.” Like, but it was on so much that I ended up loving it. Yes. The sequels, I will admit they are bad, but spot on. Wow.
Did you find the second layer of the story and all the meaning behind it and all that.
I don’t like, no, there’s no like, yeah, I didn’t get that deep into it. Um, I don’t think the writers did either. No, no. Right. I guess, I don’t know. I guess since it was girls and they were attractive. That might’ve been like a thing for me, too. Like, yeah. I think that would’ve probably been a pull factor, right? Like Gabrielle Union.
Like, see, I would have loved to have seen that if they had reversed it and Gabrielle Union was the protagonist and Kirsten Dunst was the antagonist rather than the other way around just to see how they would have played that out. But, yeah, I’ve, I actually have a really good friend who is like sheepishly admitting that, like, that’s one of his favorites.
Oh, I regret to admit it. Like I was like, “Oh, I have to be honest.” Okay, you’re not alone. But, I guess obscure will be Full-Court Miracle, too. It’s Disney, Disney Original. Um, it’s um, so, basically this, this private school. Um, they, they lose their, their head coach. Like, they’re so bad that their head coach just quits. Losing a coach has always a big storyline. But, the team sucks. Like, they’re horrible. But, they find this guy that just is at a park, randomly shooting hoops. And like, “Man, he’s making a lot of shots.” And apparently, he was a former pro player, like tore both of his knees and was just, he was really trying to revive his career again. Um, and then he comes in and they find out that he’s homeless. And um, so, they, and, and, and wasn’t even like a, I think they were, um, was it a- I think it was a Catholic school. And, um, he wasn’t a practicing Catholic. And so like, they, like, they were going to get him kicked out of the school and everything. So, they fought to keep him there and everything like that. They ended up, like, they were so bad. He ended up changing them. End up winning. And like, it’s a very dramatic story. But, like, Disney Originals had a phase to where it would go from like Cheetah Girls to High School Musical, to like where they would, like, every Friday have a new original hit come out, like, where it was just good. And this was one of them.
Does High School Musical count as a sports movie?
I don’t, but I don’t put it there. But, technically it does. And I mean, that was a draw for me. And like, you guys mentioned a bunch of, uh, sports comedies. And I’ll be honest and I’ll say that I wasn’t the biggest fan of sports comedies because I found myself really critical of the, um, the actual sport. Like Talladega Nights I love because, like, I’m not the biggest NASCAR fan. So, I couldn’t be too critical of it. But, like, semi-pro, I’m not the hugest fan of, because it’s too close to what, and I just, I don’t know. It’s a hard for me to uncover that critique type of thing. But, um, that’s just my-
I get you. I get you. That’s probably why, like, yeah. There’s some, like, um, major league- like, some baseball movies that I’m, like, “Eh.” I mean, while I get it, but that, I don’t know, they’re not on my top list, right? All right. I, I didn’t say a shout out, Million-Dollar Baby and Creed are also kind of on my random list. But, then are movies that I also love random that I hate those sports in real life. But, I like the movies about them. I can’t watch actual people boxing anymore. It just, I don’t know, as a mom or something, it hurts me to see other people get hurt like that. But, but, I like the movies cause I know it’s fake. And I just liked the drama in those kinds of movies like Rocky and Creed.
Right. Well, you’re talking about in, especially in sport, like boxing or MMA, where all you know is that warrior in that ring or in that cage at the time that’s being just utterly violent. Yeah. And then, the movies that then take you outside of that, the training that goes into it, the relationships.
That’s what I love about Rocky and Creed. Like ,I disrespected it earlier. But, it’s so inspirational. Like, being able to see that build up to it.
Yeah. And all the people that are basically having to sit there and watch the person they love get beat up. Yeah.
That’s- man, those are brutal. Yeah. But, those are good. They’re good movies. Yeah. All right. Any, anything else? I know we’re wrapping up. But, anything else you guys just have to say out there on your list.
I have notable baseball movies, um, to add to your list. Hardball I loved. BASEketball; that was one of the comedies I loved.
Oh, the South Park guys, right?
And then, um, Angels in the Outfield. Yeah. Tony Danza. I mean, that pretty much completes my list. I think I’ve said everything on there.
Brandon, did we miss any of yours?
Let’s see. Well, all right. It’s not technically a movie. But, The Last Dance, you’ve already covered it. Yeah. That’s got to go in there again. Documentary. Um, oddly enough, I did write down Bring It On. Talladega Nights we’ve covered. Dodgeball. Okay. A True Underdog Story if that, if that counts. And then, if you’re going to allow it, I’ll go Rounders. Oh, yeah. Poker. Ben Affleck. Competitive poker. Uh, Matt Damon is in it. Um, it is, it’s got a huge cast and it’s highly quotable.
I mean, I mean, poker is on ESPN. Yeah.
If you’ll allow it, I’m going to, I’ll throw that out there ’cause it’s a good one. But then, my, my favorite movie of all time, no matter what the genre, yeah, does have bowling in it. Big Lebowski.
Oh yeah. Yeah. Okay. I don’t know if that qualifies as a-
I’m gonna let it. I’m gonna allow it. Allow it, okay. Executive order.
We’ll allow it here on, on Hustle & Pro where no one else is going to be judging if it’s allowed or not.
Oh, real quick. Field Of Dreams. There’s a theory out there that everybody in the movie was dead the whole time.
Oh, Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re gonna throw that out as we’re finishing up?
Yes, it’s the perfect time. It’s called a tease. A cliffhanger, good tease. Cool Runnings is worth noting, too. “Hey, Jamaica, we have a bobsled team.” Can’t go off without that.
Yeah, I forgot about that one. Okay. Well, now I’m going to go home and think about the Field Of Dreams theory and see if, how that, if I can wrap my head around that. Um, and I’m going to go home and watch, what did we, what, Bull Durham, start to finish, and Space Jam, start to finish. So, there’re so many. Yeah. There’re so many, I know.
Anybody listening, just Google it. I’m sure there’s a top-10 list.
Oh, there’s top lists everywhere. Yeah. I looked at a list to come in here. I looked at a list and I was shocked. Like, I, Tonya was on some top lists and that was on my least favorite, those kind of movies. But, everybody has their own opinion. That’s why it’s great. Blades of Glory. Oh, yeah. I’ve heard about that one. Well, thank y’all for coming in here. I know we can talk about this for a lot longer. And um, I mean, I could have done just a whole baseball-movies episode myself. So, it was exciting to hear y’all’s favorites and, and talk through’em. So, thanks Daniel and Brandon for joining me.
Thanks for having us.
