I should be honest; I’m not really into sports. I follow the Baltimore Ravens occasionally (I’m happy they’re doing amazingly this year), plus I played tennis and practiced karate growing up. Still, I’ve just never really been interested in sports. The same goes for sports movies. Not that I hate sports movies, I love The Sandlot, The Longest Yard, Cool Runnings, plus a couple others, but I don’t go out of my way to seek out sports movies like I do horror and sci-fi. That being said, I don’t rule them out, a good sports movie needs to have a compelling character for me to latch onto, and Stay Close has that.
