It's MCW. Started by Boxer a while back, I've been though for a bit now.. Most of you know how it works but if you're new here (for which I greatly thank you) here's how it works. A theme is picked each week. You choose a movie to fit the theme and find a clip, preferably three minutes or less, and post it on your blog.

I'll most anything that I've ever participated in or that has a ball in it whether it's women's 9-ball, bowling or jai alai. Some sports are boring (everyone immediately thinks "soccer", correctly I might add) but all in all I enjoy them.
While this week's feature isn't my all-time favorite sports movie, this clip is in the top five. Paul Newman stars in "Slapshot". A movie about a hockey team about to go belly up. Too boost attendance, Newman, the team captain comes up with a plan to change the teams image. He wants them to be brawlers and then he sign's the Hanson Brothers. In this scene the teams are warming up. The good parts are at the 1:15 mark and at the end. Happy MCW.
