The Daily Citizen sports writers Devin Golden and Chris Whitfield return after the one-week pause due to the wintry weather last week with another two-part episode, the first talking about local high school sports and the second continuing the sports movie tournament.
In part one, the duo talks about the upcoming basketball matchups featuring Dalton against Northwest Whitfield, whether Northwest Whitfield's girls have potential for a deep playoff run and "bubble" teams on the edge of making the state postseason.
The Daily Citizen sports writers continue their quest to name the greatest sports movie as the field is trimmed this weekn from eight to four. With the help of listener Matthew Blackwell, Devin and Chris decide winners of "Hoosiers" versus "Field of Dreams," "Miracle" versus "Bull Durham," "Raging Bull" versus "For Love of the Game" and "Rocky" (original) versus "Remember the Titans."
There are three Kevin Costner movies remaining. How many will make the semifinals? Is "Rocky" versus "Remember the Titans" the de-facto championship matchup? Can "For Love of the Game" continue its Florida Gulf Coast-type run as the ultimate underdog? Is "Hoosiers" not-so-secretly overrated? Is "Miracle" the worst No. 2 seed in tournament history? Does Devin underappreciate older movies, such as "Raging Bull" and "Rocky?"
