    The inspirational true story of Baltimore Ravens’ offensive tackle Michael Oher opens in theaters this Friday. The Blind Side chronicles Oher’s rough road from being homeless to his NFL success as a first round draft pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. The movie is based on Michael Lewis’ book, “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game,” and stars Sandra Bullock, Kathy Bates and Quinton Aaron as Michael Oher.

    In honor of The Blind Side entering the underdog sports movie ranks, we have compiled a list of our favorite movies featuring teams or individuals with a longshot at winning anything, but a bad reputation.
