The Best Sports Movie of All Time?

Moneyball. The best sports book ever written.

After years of getting kicked around Hollywood, it’s coming to theaters near all of us. Please Brad Pitt, make this movie realize its potential.

Why am I so obsessed with Moneyball? Simple. It represents new thinking — a totally revolutionary way of doing something that has gone on since the being of time in an antiquated, non-analytical way.

Quite simply, Billy Beane and the Oakland A’s revolutionized sports. They brought math to sports. And they made a backwater team with no budget one of the most consistent top performers in baseball. Awesome.
