So, So Wrong

Anyway, the list recounts their choices for the Top 30 Villains in Sports Movies. A noble cause, I must say, but their choices are so misguided.
Where do I start? First off, the Yankees from Bad News bears are 24th. 24th! How is that possible? They helped provide us with one of the greatest lines in movie history, courtesy of Tanner Boyle: "Hey Yankees... you can take your apology and your trophy and shove 'em straight up your ass!" Vic Morrow as the manager. His snot-nosed kid who held onto the ball so Engleberg could get a home run. That's definitely Top 10 material.
And speaking of the Top 10, that list included The Program, The Mighty Ducks, Sandlot and Rudy. And some of those weren't even real villains, but plot points. I'm sorry, Rudy's "athletic ability, size, and strength" do not qualify as a villain. In fact, the real villain in that movie is Notre Dame.
To top it all off, Judge Smails from Caddyshack wasn't even in the Top 10. Unacceptable. I expect a new list at some point. To quote the great judge, "Well, we're waiting."
