People will come to Iowa, Ray.
Megan, Brian Jerry will start Round 2 after that
Well, despite the fact that I had two picks ready, I'll just make my one now. One of the few sports movies to be considered a cinematic masterpiece. Should've won Scorcese his first Oscar, but he had to wait til 2006 to get a Best Director award. I select "Raging Bull." I will now take a nap as I await my next pick.
OH FOR THE LOVE OF THE LORD THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MY PICK.
Raging Bull is the consensus No. 1 sports movie of all time. No question.
It's like Tom Brady, it almost lasted until the sixth round.
To my editors, I think I know who "Charlie" is, by the way.
Oh BABY. Cannot believe this beauty is still on the board in the second round. No. 11 overall pick to MIRACLE (2004) out of Lake Placid, N.Y. Who do you play for? THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The word usage gives Charlie away. How did you like that hat I bought you, Charlie?
The refs hosed the Soviets.
Does a movie about a semifinal really count though?
I play for you, Herb, here at the U
This isn't a snake draft because we're modeling our draft after that Kevin Costner classic "Draft Day"?
This has nothing to do with Naila's (very good) point, nor the fact that Megan kicked off Round 2 with some puck. I've had this movie ranked much higher. There comes a point in every boy's life he sees this movie, and we all have the same reaction during the same scene: "THAT'S THE MOM FROM A CHRISTMAS STORY!?!?!??" Melinda Dillon stole the show, but this show is hockey: "Slap Shot"
Great surprise than Slap Shot lasted until the second round.
Attach the video of the little kid doing the Miracle speech instead
Jerry Zgoda is up ... followed by Chris Miller and Ben Goessling
I have never seen Slap Shot, the Natural or Hoosiers. Just putting that out there.
That's OK, Jeff Day. On a way that means you're classin' up this thing.
And, no, Jerry. A Wonderwall video is NOT a movie.
The writer in me picks...Money Ball. At first, you might have said how the hell do they make a movie of that book. They did, and it was great. So, too, was Brad Pitt and Jonah. Loved the scouts sitting around the table screen -- i know guys like that -- and that song his daughter sang called her dad a loser was cute, too. Love the prominent role the Twins played in it, too.
Chariots of Fire! Nice British angle there Mr. Miller. Giving us some real international flair.
flair ... like in Office Space??
It was about the 1924 Olympics, Charlie ... I think you and Sid listened to that one together on the radio??
It's the Olympics, Charlie!
Goessling has been preparing for this draft for longer than Spielman and Zimmer have been preparing for theirs.
