To kick-off my weekend I went to go check out the new movie that has everyone buzzing – Moneyball – when I started to walk out of the theater I was a loss of words to describe how good this movie was. This, I thought to myself, was a rare spectacle … rarely do I find myself entranced on a movie to the point that I am almost consumed in the movie, but the comedy and emotional one-two punch of the film had me in awe for all 126 minutes. I got to thinking last night, what are my favorite Sports Movies of all time?

With the struggles Tiger Woods has gone through, being the great golfer that he is, people are starting to question if Woods can ever be as dominant as he once was only a few years ago. The Topic is simply scorching because fans have so many different theory on which direction the game is headed and if Golf will transform into another type of system. A lot of questions may be answered starting on July 14 as golf will go to Royal St.Georges to decide the winner of the only major on European soil.
