Movies have been made about just every sport we can think of, we grow to love these characters. But who is the best in their respective sports, we take a look. The only real criteria for this is that person has to be fictional, tons of true stories have been made, we already know how great they are.
Chubbs Peterson (Happy Gilmore)
Shooter McGavin (Happy Gilmore)
Roy McAvoy (Tin Cup)
Danny Noonan, Ty Webb, (Caddy Shack)
Winner: Happy Gilmore
Gilmore is the G.O.A.T., the guy didn’t even know how to golf at first. He was a hockey player that decided to golf, that makes it even more impressive. His long drive was on point, and he adjusted his short game to win. That’s the markings of a real pro, with the memory of Chubbs on his mind Gilmore would win a green jacket. Oops I meant Gold jacket, who really gives a shit. Either way Gilmore was a character he drove up attendance and ratings for the PGA. He did more for the game than any other character.
Bugs Bunny (Space Jam)
All the players from Blue Chips
Jesus Shuttlesworth (He Got Game)
Sidney Deane and Billy Hoyle (White Men Can’t Jump)
Winner: Jackie Moon
I shouldn’t even have to explain this, but I will. Jackie was an owner, coach and player, that’s so much pressure! His team got robbed of becoming an NBA team, people dont forget they got 4th place. I’d say Monix and Clarence played key parts on the team but none of that would have happened without “Love Me, Sexy”
I love baseball movies and my honorable mentions could go on for days. Movies like Bull Durham, Major League, Angels in the Outfield, Rookie of the Year, Sandlot, A League of Their Own, Little Big League, Bad News Bears, this goes on, so ill just skip straight to the winner. Don’t forget about Kenny Powers either, he was on tv show, but still its Kenny F’in Powers.
Winner: Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez
He is fast, smart and can make good contact with the ball. And judging from the long scene where The Jet is running from The Beast, Rodriguez has had stamina and agility from a young age. There are not many movie shortstops, or players in general, who can compete with Rodriguez. Plus Rodriguez grows up to have an absolutely amazing stache with the Dodgers.
Honorable mention (Don’t forget that “Remember the Titans” was true story)
Willie Beaman (Any Given Sunday)
Megget (Longest Yard)
Spike – (LITTLE GIANTS)
Becky “Ice Box” O’Shea – (LITTLE GIANTS)
Shane Falco – (The Replacements)
Winner: Bobby Boucher (Waterboy)
He literally had quarterbacks begging for their lives at the line of scrimmage. In his first football game he ever played, Bobby set the NCAA record with 16 sacks in a single game against West Mississippi. The guy is an absolute unit and has an amazing football sense, he sees the field like Ray Lewis and is a leader in the locker room. Remember when Bobby Boucher showed up at half time and the MudDogs won the Bourbon Bowl? Do Ya?
Honorable Mention (There’s so many just like baseball, but for this ill do a top 10, no particular order)
Reggie Dunlop (Slap Shot)
Gunnar Stahl (D2: The Mighty Ducks)
Gordon Bombay (Mighty Ducks Franchise)
John Biebe (Mystery, Alaska)
Derek Sutton (Youngblood)
Connor Banks (Mystery, Alaska)
Xavier LaFlamme (Goon)
Julie ‘The Cat’ Gaffney (The Mighty Ducks)
Wolf “The Dentist” Stansson (D2: The Mighty Ducks)
Winner: Dean Youngblood (Youngblood)
For true hockey fans this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Its widely argued in the hockey community, but this guy is always right at the top.
Youngblood was one of the purest goal scorers on any roster of any team in any hockey movie. After all, how else would a skinny kid who can’t fight make a team in a Canadian Junior Hockey League? Dean’s goal-scoring ability translated to junior hockey, but it took him a while until his physical play improved. Youngblood demonstrated the total package in the last game of the season. His penalty shot goal sealed the championship for the Mustangs, and his victory in a fight against Racki cemented his position as a true all-around player.
