2. Ricky Bobby, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Will Ferrell

You can’t have a sports movie list without Ricky Bobby. I might be one of the few people that will read this article that’s actually a NASCAR fan, but could you imagine the following NASCAR would have if Ricky Bobby was real? Yeah he’s absurd, but all he does is drive fast, turn left, and win races. He does also give some of the best Powerade sponsored prayers I have ever heard.

3. Bobby Boucher, Waterboy, Adam Sandler

“Now, that’s what I call high quality H20”. Hands down the best water boy of all time. Definitely, would have been in the running for the Pro Bowl at water boy.

4. Happy Gilmore, Happy Gilmore, Adam Sandler

Back to back Adam Sandler characters, you had to see it coming. He plays too many great ones to not include more than one. Watching professional golf on Sundays might take over the NFL (probably still not enough) if you had Happy out there running the show on Sundays. From a late Sunday charge to jumping in the pond after his ball.

5. Thad Castle, Blue Mountain State, Alan Ritchson

Hands down the dumbest person on this list. You can’t get stupid from beer and girls right? Must be because he has had about twenty too many concussions. (Thanks NFL).

6. Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, Major League I and II, Charlie Sheen

“Wild Thing, you make my heart sing? You make everything groovy.” Cleveland actually made it to a World Series… And yes I am talking about real life and not just in the Major League movies. Due to this, Cleveland fans are calling for Charlie Sheen to bring back his leather motorcycle jacket, his millennial looking hipster glasses, and his wild arm to throw out the first pitch for Game One of the World Series. Thankfully Major League Baseball is on their “Make Baseball Boring” Campaign and won’t allow this to happen. What a shame.

7. Benjamin Franklin “Benny the Jet” Rodriguez, Sandlot, Mike Vitar

Growing up as a kid playing baseball you looked up to Benny the Jet. Over the years there have been some amazingly fast players, but could you imagine a guy consistently stealing home? Week after week?

8. Otto Rocket, Rocket Power, Joseph Ashton

Really, you could list any one of the characters from Rocket Power here, well except Squid. (Sorry Squid). They would have fed right into the X-Games craze of the 2000’s. Also, I heard they are the early favorite for the 2020 Olympic Surfing Competition.

9. Air Bud, Air Bud Series, Golden Retriever

Wouldn’t be cool to see a superstar dog in real life? I mean he can play basketball, baseball, football, and about twenty other sports. I am not really sure, it seemed like there were fifty Air Bud movies. I am still waiting for them to release an Air Bud cricket movie though.

10. Coach Taylor, Friday Night Lights, Kyle Chandler

Saved the best for last, a.k.a. the best coach of all time. Plus you would get to watch Matt Saracen, Brian “Smash” Williams, and the always drunk Tim Riggins play. Texas forever.

Honorable Mentions

Paul Crewe,The Longest Yard, Adam Sandler or Burt Reynolds

Tim Riggins,Friday Night Lights, Taylor Kitsch

Calvin Cambridge,Like Mike, Bow Wow

Coach Tony D’Amato, Any Given Sunday, Al Pacino

Angels Superfan J.P., Angels and the Outfield, Milton Davis Jr.

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

As for coming to school under the influence, specific statistics can be hard to come by, but there is concern that the increasing social acceptance of marijuana may lead to higher rates of use among teenagers.
