At the end of the summer I decided to embark upon a journey that would assuredly reap uncountable rewards. That journey has been long and arduous, but it is slowly approaching its end. Last August I decided to create something that combined two of my favorite pastimes: drinking beer and watching sports. Thus, I began compiling a Power Hour of sports movies.
The project contains both classic sports movies as well as non-sports movies that have memorable sports scenes.
It certainly hasn't been easy, but I'm getting there. It's getting to the point where its pretty tough, so that's where you come in. I currently have a product that has 35 scenes in it. I have a small list of movies/scenes that I know will be added. Then I have some wiggle room. I need some suggestions and help to finish this bad boy off. Right now there are some movies with multiple scenes. Ideally there will be exactly 60 movies represented with 60 scenes. Lists? Lists:
