On March 27, the new sports flick "Draft Day" will sneak preview at Studio Movie Grill. And IBJ has a stack of passes to give away.

Telling the story of a life-changing day for an NFL GM, the Ivan Reitman film stars Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Sam Elliot and Ellen Burstyn.

To score tickets, all you have to do is enter below and name your favorite moment in your favorite sports movie.

I'll pick winners at random until all passes are gone.

  • Hoosiers -- Of Course
    My favorite moment is the final scene of the state championship. The authentic radio call over the actors is dynamite and compelling story telling. While the movie deviates substantially from the true story of the team, I've found it to be such an inspirational and fun movie to water over and over again.
  • Favorite Sports Moment
    "Do you believe in miracles?" When Team USA beats Russia in Miracle.
  • Lou Gehrig
    Gary Cooper (in The Pride of the Yankees,1942) in a near-perfect reenactment of Lou Gehrig's farewell speech. A goose-bumps moment.
  • League of Their Own
    "There's no crying in baseball!"
  • Sports Movie
    Breaking Away!
  • Rocky!
    We finish workouts at Rock Steady Boxing #RockStdyBoxing with 6:00 round of heavy bag switches. Classic Rocky theme: 5:57. Sweet coincidence. No-brainier for me.
  • Friday Night Lights
    The final drive in the title game of Friday Night Lights.
  • Field of Dreams
    The closing scene of Kevin Costner playing catch with his dad
  • Rudy
    When the other players turn in their jerseys so Rudy can dress the final game. And of course when the crowd chants and Rudy finally gets in the game. Tears every time.
    from Jerry Maquire was by far the most memorable line from a sports movie, IMO. From the same movie, "You had me at hello." Two memorable lines from one movie :)
    • Brian's Song
      Sayers and Piccolo hospital scene...
    • Oops
      I read the "rules" wrong..but from the same movie, when Tom Cruise leaves his job to go out on his own and Renee Zellweger quits and goes with him.
    • Hard to choose
      So many great sports movies moments that I love. My top pick is a bit of a twist as it makes the point that real glory is found in a life well lived: Field of Dreams the exchange between Ray & Dr Graham Ray Kinsella: Fifty years ago, for five minutes you came within... y-you came this close. It would KILL some men to get so close to their dream and not touch it. God, they'd consider it a tragedy. Dr. Archibald "Moonlight" Graham: Son, if I'd only gotten to be a doctor for five minutes... now that would have been a tragedy.
    • RUDY
      Notre Dame Player: You ready for this champ? Rudy: I been ready for this my whole life. Notre Dame Player: Then you take us out on the field champ.
