9 Glorious Moments Where Sports Mimicked the Movies

Nick Blake: ''As we all know, there are film fans everywhere, even (especially?) in the world of sports. That works out well, since athletes are granted a public forum with which to showcase their movie fandom that maybe, say, systems analysts or accountants are not. (Sorry, systems analysts and accountants.)

But while athletes (or coaches) paying homage to their favorite films is nothing that's necessarily new, those instances have come in varying degrees of devotion. Here, we have nine memorable cases of sports mimicking movies, either in front of the camera or on the field.'' (Culture)
