A sports movie is generally a movie genre that makes use of sports as the main theme of the movie. It’s usually a documentary film in which sports, an athlete, sports event, or fan of sports are heavily involved, and that rely on sports to some extent for their storyline inspiration or resolution. If you’re looking for something with a little bit of romance and humor, sports movies can provide it in spades, and if you prefer a slightly more serious look at sports, there’s plenty of that as well.
I’ve spent many years working in the sports broadcasting industry, and while the vast majority of my friends and co-workers are incredibly passionate about their sports, there are a surprising number who are completely clueless about what sports is actually all about. Many people think of professional athletes, or big name sports figures, as being hard-core “weird” or “weirdo’s” who participate in a lot of crazy activities, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, disabled sports fanatics and observers are just as passionate about their favorite teams and players as anyone else. This article will explain why the main article of interest is often a sports story, and how its sometimes a good thing, sometimes a bad thing, and definitely should be covered by media outlets that specialize in disabilities and disability coverage.
The main article of interest is inevitably going to be a sports story that features a disabled player, team, or league in some way. As I’ve said before, I personally feel that its always a good thing when big names and sports figures support the development and progression of handicapped sports (especially if those people also have a strong personal interest in helping the development of the sport, as well), but the sad reality is that there are still some awful people out there who seem more interested in disgusting themselves than providing a true contribution to the development of the game. For this reason, I recommend that you contact a sports writer, sportscout, or disability specialist who has experience covering disability sports. Let them know that you want to write an article, and see what they can do to help you get started.
