Soccer: Lady Bugs

 

Oh my, how could I have forgotten Lady Bugs?  I may have to try to dig up my VHS copy of it.  And a VHS player.  Or rent it some night on Google Play if it's there.  Great recall!

Football: Johnny Be Good.  Anthony Michael Hall, Robert Downey Jr. and Uma Thurman in a funny movie about a high school football star going through the recruiting process as we might have imagined it in the 80s.

Baseball: Field of Dreams

Basketball: Hoosiers.  Nothing else really comes close for me on this one.  Classic.

Hockey:  Miracle.  Wasn't quite old enough to remember it when it happened, and I love that the actors were actual hockey players.  Very realistic action scenes.

Soccer:  Victory.  Loved this movie as a kid.  Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine, and Pele.  How could you not!!!

Auto Racing:  Talladega Nights.

Bowling:  Don't know why this is even on the list, by default, I feel like I have to go with The Big Lebowski.  I've never seen Kingpin and I don't know any other movies that deal with bowlng.

Surfing:  North Shore. Learned a lot about surfing culture, Hawaii, and Pidgin from this movie.

Golf:  Greatest Game Ever Played.  I was tempted to leave this one off the list because I know what most of answers are going to be.  Yawn.

Boxing:  Rocky III.  Just because that was the first one I remember watching when it came out.  I was too young for the previous two, and Clubber Lang was a perfect villian too.

Amazing, I'm Identical to GolfingDad except for Baaeball which is Field of Dreams for me.

And Field of Dreams is way up there for me too.  There have been times when I would've considered it my favorite.

"Dad???  Wanna have a catch?" :~(:cry::cry::cry:

    • Here are my top five favorite and least favorite players currently on the PGA Tour. Favorites------------Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari Least Favorites----Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Billy Horshel, Rory Sabbatini and Hunter Mahan                                                                                                                                           I don't really dislike the last five as much as I just catch myself pulling against them when they are in contention. (Also, I realize Haas and Mahan are not in the top 125 right now). Who are your favorites and least favorites?
    • Well, it's not an absolute, of course.  It's just a tendency to fare well in the long game and crap out in the short game.  (BTW, the 7-iron over the green was pretty useful information for me.  It is the result of my fiddling with the swing.  Looks like I am getting about 20-30 yards extra off my irons with this hips-first swing.) BTW, on the 7 you quoted, I hit a 2nd shot off the tee since the right shoreline is tree-lined and I did not think I could get a decent drop.  I should have put that part in there.  Naturally that faded some and ended under a tree anyway. pfft Klineka, we are so far off the topic now that I have nearly forgot the point. Actually, this thread has been off point for a long time anyway.
    • made some changes and have a few DTL videos to share. noticed inconsistent ball position was causing some previously unexplained mishits. using a couple of alignment rods to fix this. widened stance and feeling more centered foot pressure. just feels more solid. keeping chin higher at address and throughout backswing. much easier to get a full turn and had the unintended consequence (along with wider stance) of reducing lateral head movement when i load up (à la henrik stenson). using a neutral grip now. most frequent miss has turned into a pull. neutral grip helps prevent pull hooks. first video is a drill (7-iron) i'm using to improve tempo and separation. it's the drill i love to hate: challenging and significantly reduces power but very helpful. this particular swing is acceptable but i want to try to get more separation. 1) i need better core strength and to do more pelvic exercises. and 2) i need to trust the top half will follow the bottom half. feedback or questions? second video is about 80% tempo with a p-wedge. there's a clear difference between this and the drill swing. i hit this ball dead straight but it could've easily been a 10-yard pull if my timing was slightly off. i want to fix this so i don't rely on timing and i think that starts with a more consistent path on the backswing (like in the drill) and getting better separation so i don't jump at the ball from the top before sliding/turning with the lower half. feedback or questions? third video is an example of how much more drastic this swing flaw looks with longer irons. here i'm hitting a 16.5* driving iron. saved the shot with good timing and roasted a baby pull fade but it could have turned out badly. i want this club to be my fairway finder. have made solid progress in the last few weeks but still have a bit of work to do before i'm comfortable bagging it. feedback or questions?  
    • I wear jeans to work, and thus find myself on the driving range wearing jeans quite frequently.   No real positive or negative to swinging in jeans.  a bit hot in the summer.   kinda nice in the fall.   
    • I second what @billchao says. You want someone to take a look at your swing. But if you're going to look on YouTube, just for general knowledge on the swing, I would check out Eric Cogorno. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClOp9ASmFYATO1zFfpB7QlA Or Athletic Motion Golf https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvtpTGbGiMgI8gWlsMUmdLA
