Once I learned how to get around You Tube properly, a whole new world was opened up to me. For the sports fan, it is a treasure trove of highlights, bloopers, games, amateurs, professionals, wannabes, neverwills, clips, docos and movies.
I have compiled a brief list of my three favourite sports docos/short films in the hope that it will inspire you as a sports fan to explore what's out there. Please add your favs to the comments section!
3 Must-See Sports Docos
I’m a nut for sports docos and films. I love them and watch them over and over. To do a list like this is not original, but my choices may be films that are new to you.
America do a lot of things better than most, sports docos being one. ESPN have mastered the art of drama/reality and the imagery and substance to their storytelling is largely unsurpassed in the genre. The excellent 30 for 30 series has something for everyone and is a must for all sports fans, but the E:60 short films also have some special ‘surprises’ that should be explored. If you haven’t seen them, get on YouTube and get amongst it. I would love to hear your feedback on my choices and some suggestions of your own…it may be that you love a doco I haven’t seen!
