So I finally had a chance to watch "We Are Marshall" and I started thinking of my favourite (yes, I'm Canadian) football movies.
I also decided to add my favourite quotes from said movie.
1. The Program (1993)
Chairman (Dan Hannafin): This is not a football vocational school. It's an institute for higher learning.
Coach Winters (James Caan): Yeah, but when was the last time 80,000 people showed up to watch a kid do a damn chemistry experiment? Why don't you stick the bow-tie up your ass?
2. Jerry Maguire (1996)
Jerry (Tom Cruise): I will not rest until I have you holding a Coke, wearing your own shoe, playing a Sega game *featuring you*, while singing your own song in a new commercial, *starring you*, broadcast during the Super Bowl, in a game that you are winning, and I will not *sleep* until that happens. I'll give you 15 minutes to call me back.
3. Brian's Song (1971)
Brian Piccolo (James Caan): Well, on uh, Fake Draw Screen Right I uh, pick up the linebacker if he's comin', 'less of course it's Butkus, then I simply notify the quarterback to send for a preacher.
4. Remember the Titans (2000)
Coach Yost (Will Patton): ...shotgun? Who do they think we are, the New York Jets?
5. Rudy (1993)
Rudy (Sean Astin): This entire year's been a waste! I've just blown another year of eligibility!
6. The Longest Yard (1974)
Police Officer: Why'd you drive her car into the bay?
Paul Crewe (Burt Reynolds): Couldn't find a car wash.
7. Any Given Sunday (1999)
Kevin Branson (Phil Latzman): Cherubini's down.
Dr. Harvey Mandrake (James Woods): Cherubini! What, did he fall off the bench?
8. Friday Night Lights (2004)
Boobie Miles (Derek Luke): What am I gonna do if I can't play football? I'm not good at nothin'!
9. Varsity Blues (1999)
Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight): It makes me wonder if you know the different between a sneeze and a wet fart!
10. The Waterboy (1998)
Lawrence Taylor (as himself): Which brings me to my second point, kids. Don't do crack.
