Here at Flavorpill, we can’t help getting a little excited about the US Open, even though we’re not usually particularly sports-focused. However, what with all the action going on right now, we’ve been noticing just how ingrained sports are in our daily lives, even when we’re not noticing it — we hear sports metaphors daily, look out our windows to kids playing ball on the street, and even engage in some healthy activity ourselves every once in a while. To that end, we’ve collected ten great sports scenes from movies ostensibly not about sports, so we can feel inspired to incorporate our US Open mania into our lives with no guilt. Click through to watch our ten favorite sports scenes from dramas, comedies, and other non-sports-based films, and let us know if we’ve missed any of your favorites in the comments!
