The Blind SideInspirational sports stories have always been a popular subject for movies, but there's a special subset of this genre – true life underdog stories – that can be the most awe-inspiring of all. The latest such film, 'The Blind Side,' is the tale of Michael Oher, the formerly homeless son of a crack addict who overcomes seemingly impossible odds to play for the NFL. (He was the Baltimore Ravens' first-round draft pick this year).

Narrowing this field down to the 10 greatest films is no easy feat, and obviously open to argument, but we gave it a go. Just about all of them are guaranteed to choke up even the most hard-boiled jock.
