I was watching the movie Hoosiers last night and I happened to catch the last 15 minutes of the movie. After trying to figure out Jimmy Chitwood’s boxscore for the final game, we are brought to the glorious moment where he says “I’ll Make it.” I defy any sports fan to tell me that that moment doesn’t give them the chills.
In honor of that moment, I decided to compile a list of 9 more sports movie moments that left me getting the chills.
These are in no particular order
Robert Redford’s Blast in The Natural
Al Pacino’s Inch by Inch Speech in Any Given Sunday
Jake Taylor Bunts in Major League
