Question Greatest Sports Moment in a Movie

On the radio they just mentioned a poll of the greatest sports movie moments, or something like that, that was online but I didn't catch the link. I figured that this was as good a time and place as any to bring this topic up.

What is the greatest sports moment in a movie, in your opinion?

For I guess it would have to be when Rudy gets a sack in his last game and gets carried out of the stadium.

Some other notables for me are:
- the Bad News Bears pouring beers all over each other after they lose the championship
- Mickey's last fight in Snatch, Daniel-san giving Billy Zabka the crane kick
- Rocky beating Ivan Drago and ending the Cold War
- Jennifer Jason Leigh losing 'it' in the little league dugout in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

That last one might not really count

Damn fine choice!

I also forgot to mention Big Ern McCraken's reaction to winning the World Bowling Championship. That's a pretty classic moment.

I'd say the greatest sports movie moment was when Conan beat his very first opponent in the fighting pits because if he had lost he would have died.

Does "Ow my Balls" from Idiocracy count as a sports moment?

LOL that is a classic moment. I always love that because at that time my friends and I were all about that game.

I love when Rocky beat the Commie. Another great moment was when Bob Barker beat the crap out of Adam Sandler on a golf course.
