Great Moments In Film – The Bad News Bears (1976)
Not only is The Bad News Bears a very funny movie, but it also exposes the dangers of youth sports. How do we balance keeping the game fun while teaching the kids how to play and trying to win games? More often than not, it’s the adults that ruin everything for the kids and it’s a problem that is very prevalent today.
This would be the end of the movie, where the Bears (a bunch of misfits for the most part) have come up just short in the championship game. I absolutely love their reaction to the “apology” that their rivals, the Yankees, make. I don’t think I could have said it any better than this little kid does. I love whenever FORCED sportsmanship is shown for what it really is: an absolute crock.
