The Greatest Sports Pep Talk…Ever!

The good and rather committed people over at Screen Junkies have edited together a great little montage featuring some of the best and most famous inspirational locker room speeches in cinematic history. You can almost smell the deep heat and sweaty jock straps. Are you ready for this? I can’t hear you. Are you ready for this? Where’s the fire in the belly? Stoke that boiler and go out there and rip into that shower of shite! You can do it!

Which reminds us we’re off to watch Slap Shot again. Greatest sports film ever made.
