Nothing is more inspirational than a good sports movie that tells the tale of a down and out team or player that rises to the top and finds glory. These are the stories that are passed down from generation to generation. Even if you're not a sports fan, sports movies always seem like the great equalizer because they often say so much more about society than they do about the sport itself. Many sports-related movies deal with a plethora of other themes, including, but not limited to: addiction, abuse, race, gender, and more. It can be simply about the spirit of competition, but sports movies can be so much more and impact viewers in ways they didn't see coming.What are the best sports movies to watch on Netflix tonight?
