Every movie has its quotable moments, but sports movies are the best. They can inspire even more than regular movies. Here are 10 that may get you to jump out of your chair and do 10 pushups right away. Or something like that.
 
1. Field of Dreams

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time." - When reading this, people are legally obligated to use James Earl Jones' bass voice.
 
2. A League of Their Own

 "Are you crying? Are you crying? ARE YOU CRYING? There's no crying! THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!" --  Tom Hanks' Jimmy Duggan was in need of sensitivity training when talking to his female players. 
 
3. Rocky

"You're gonna eat lightnin' and you're gonna crap thunder!" - Mickey's promise to Rocky while training him could have been dangerous if true. At the very least, you'd hate to be in the next stall.
 

4. Slap Shot

"I'm listening to the f-----g song!" - Steve Hanson's reply to the referee giving him a warning during the national anthem about possibly dirty play never fails to make me laugh. (NSFW Language: You might want to wear headphones or close your office door for this one.)

5. Raging Bull

"You didn't get me down, Ray." -- Jake LaMotta's retort to Sugar Ray Robinson after their fight shows Robert De Niro at his best. 

6. Bull Durham

"Wow. Anything that goes that far needs a stewardess on it." -- Truth be told, I could just have nine Bull Durham quotes here and they'd all be great. Crash Davis' explanation to Nuke LaLoosh about just playing and not thinking things too deeply is sage advice indeed. (NSFW Language: You might want to wear headphones or close your office door for this one.)

7. CaddyShack

"IT'S IN THE HOLE!!" -- Too bad some idiot co-opted Carl Spackler's quote and made it "GET IN THE HOLE!" whenever Tiger Woods was about to shoot. 

8. The Sandlot

"You're killing me, Smalls!" -- This might be the most-used catchphrase in the history of ever. 

9. Chariots of Fire

"I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure." - Many people could say the same thing about what their best talent makes them feel like. 

10. Major League

"Juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside." -- Bob Uecker's character, announcer Harry Doyle, makes me crack up every time I hear his play-by-play of Ricky Vaughn's first pitch. (NSFW Language: You might want to wear headphones or close your office door for this one)
