#25 The Longest Yard (original)
The 1974 original is the oldest movie on the list, proving the enduring entertainment value in seeing those in authority getting the crap kicked out of them.
#24 Varsity Blues
It's the story of a small-town Texas high school that places huge importance on football. Sounds more like a documentary. Oh, wait. James Van Der Beek is a star quarterback? There are your laughs.
#23 Major League II
The sequel to "Major League" couldn't quite live up to the original. Blame Omar Epps' Willie Mays Hayes.
#22 A League of Their Own
Geena Davis was the star, Rosie O'Donnell provided comic relief and Madonna was a sex symbol. Wow, 1992 was a really long time ago.
#21 D2: The Mighty Ducks
Emilio Estevez doesn't have much of a movie career nowadays, but at least he can claim that his sports movie sequel holds up better than his brother Charlie Sheen's does. Also, he probably doesn't have a potpourri of porn star-provided venereal diseases. Good job, Emilio.
She would have preferred to be hit in the face by the thing that's full of candy.
The collection includes six tight-fitting, breathable gowns designed for athletic females a demographic, according to the company, that believes competition and elegance should coexist.
The dresses were unveiled Wednesday morning at a press conference, where six heavily muscled women sported the dresses and stood in traditional prom poses, their fibrous arms holding punching bags instead of dates. The women stood under a sign that read, THIS YEAR, PROMINATE YOUR DATE, and proceeded to demonstrate a cardio-intense interpretation of a slow dance that culminated with the women body slamming tuxedoed mannequins through fluorescent lamps.

That's probably bad on the wax job.
Derek Jeter = Kermit the Frog
Ndamukong Suh = Miss Piggy
The Little Kid
It's your nephew or your little cousin. And he's the worst player on the field. He's also the most valuable player on the field because the other side will be guilted into giving him a free touchdown or two so his little feelings don't get hurt. You'll want to lock him up with the first pick.
The Injury-Prone Uncle
Once the teams are all settled up, the game begins. But it doesn't officially begin until a play or two later when Uncle Jerry somehow snaps his femur running a crossing route at 3 miles per hour. Then you have to find two replacements one for Uncle Jerry and one for the person rushing him to the hospital before the game can begin again and for real.
Position: WR then fetal
The Guy Who Takes It Too Seriously
The game is supposed to be a fun activity to burn off some calories, but he's treating the family Turkey Bowl like it's the Super Bowl. Drop a pass and he'll be on your ass. And you better not forget any of the two dozen plays or blitz schemes he's drawn up. And don't bother complaining when he drops Aunt Gladys with a clothesline. YOU DON'T COME ACROSS THE MIDDLE IN MY BACKYARD, AUNT GLADYS!
Position: QB/CB who plays aggressive bump coverage
#15 Brian Scalabrine
#14 Jason Garrett
With his athleticism, perhaps he should consider a more profitable sport.
