I generally steer clear of sports movies. For the most part, they are cliché-ridden and the action scenes too often don’t resemble the real thing. I report and opine on sports, a fantasy-based industry, so I obviously prefer my fantasy sports scenes to be as close to the real fake stuff as possible.
Oh, and sports movies generally depict sportswriters and broadcasters to be total morons, and these days I have Twitter and e-mail to remind me of that. Who needs to pay $10 or $12 at the cineplex for the sweet (and sour) nothings that get delivered free of charge?
