Episode #108 – Winning Sports Movies

We talk a lot about heroes on Let Me Know How It Is. Characters who never say die. Characters who believe in themselves. Characters who find the courage to do the right thing no matter what. These characters are plentiful, but they don’t have to wear a cape to be a hero. Sports movies share many of the themes that we all know and love from superheroes. A genre with its own conventions and tropes and no shortage of memorable entries. Join us as we talk up our favorite sports movies.
