For me:

Baseball- *61. I grew up with this movie. It made Roger Maris my favorite player in baseball of all time. Major league was good too. I liked the rookie but I saw it when I was really young so there's no telling if I'd like it nowadays.

Football- Remember the Titans. It would be FNL but I liked FNL the show more. Every time I watch it I trick myself into thinking they'll win the championship and when they don't it's just too heartbreaking.

Basketball- White Men Can't Jump. Some of it is laughable. Some lines are corny but they're good in the sense that they have stuck with me since I first saw it.

Golf- Caddyshack, of course.

Track- Prefontaine

Fighting- Never Back Down

Hockey- Slap Shot

nice to see movies that show the ugly side of NCAA sports, even if they aren't necessarily "well made" movies, per se.
