Our quest to crown SoE's Best Sports Movie is down to the Final Four.
Last week, all three of our remaining high seeds: "Rocky," "Hoosiers" and "Bull Durham," continued to prove their sports movie fan dominance.
"Field of Dreams" and "Major League" provided the second round's most thrilling competition. The California Penal League's finest relief pitcher, Rick Vaughn (played by Charlie Sheen), put up a great fight, but Ray Kinsella's (Kevin Costner) Iowa cornfield prevailed to reach the Final Four and a head-to-head matchup with the pride of Indiana, "Hoosiers."
In case these final decisions are tough, we've put together the most memorable lines from each film.
Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), "Rocky"
"I just want to say hi to my girlfriend, okay? Yo, Adrian! It's me, Rocky."
Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon), "Bull Durham"
"I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball."
Coach Norman Dale (Gene Hackman), "Hoosiers"
"If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game -- in my book we're gonna be winners."
Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), "Field of Dreams"
"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: It's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh, people will come Ray. People will most definitely come."
Vote below now, and find out who reaches our Finals next Friday. And don't forget -- the Best Sports Movie winner will take on our Best Non-Traditional Sports Movie champ, "Caddyshack," for the lofty title of Greatest Sports Movie on Earth.
Here's the updated bracket.
