  • The Mighty Ducks Trilogy: Hockey!! I love these movies; I saw every one of them in the theater and I silently fumed for days when my city finally got a minor league hockey team AFTER I left.
  • Ice Princess: Figure skating! And a smart girl! Total win.
  • Miracle: Hockey! This movie. That is all.
  • Personal Best: Track! One of the earlier mainstream LGBT movies.
  • Cool Runnings: Bobsledding! This is one of my grandma’s favorite movies and that makes it one of mine; it’s based on a true story and is funny and heartwarming and pretty much perfect.
  • Ice Castles: Figure skating! I’ll admit while this is supposed to be very heartwarming it isn’t one of my favorites, but worth watching at least once.
  • Go Figure: Hockey and figure skating! It’s a DCOM so you know it has to be fun.
  • Make It or Break It: Gymnastics! One of those drama filled shows that you (or maybe just me) CAN’T STOP WATCHING.
