When I was a kid, I remember watching the Million Dollar Man on TV. Loved that show. Well, apparently inflation’s been working overtime because nowadays all you’ll get for a million bucks is an arm. Just an arm.
I kid. I kid. I’m of course talking about Disney’s uber-popular movie Million Dollar Arm featuring that lovable mad man himself Jon Hamm. Hamm stars as a sports agent at the end of his rope, trying to land the next big thing. When his search takes him out of the country and over seas, things get just a little bit interesting.
From the studio that brought you Remember the Titans and Miracle, presents an inspirational true story of self-discovery, second chances, and personal triumph in the face of adversity. Set against America’s favorite pastime, follow sports agent JB Bernstein as he searches for the next major league pitching star and learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.
I took Allie and the boys to see this when it was in theaters and was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I’m a sucker for just about any sports movie but this one went way beyond your typical baseball film. It really is a fish out of water type of tale (in more ways than one), and full of loads of wonderful life lessons. Jason and Ryan enjoyed it too, getting excited at the key moments and laughing at the numerous light-hearted ones.
Allie of course was in tears by the end, as I could’ve predicted. No worries, I’m not spoiling anything for you at all. She cries on cue practically with most movies either at how incredibly sad something is or how amazingly wonderful and beautiful something turns out to be in the end. So if she’s crying, it means she was moved to tears. Literally.
Anyways, Disney’s Million Dollar Arm is making its way to store shelves this Tuesday, October 7! And because Disney also just loves making dreams come true, they’re giving a copy of the Blu-ray/DVD combo to three of my lucky readers! I’d say that’s pretty much a home run, wouldn’t you?

The biggest thing I learned from sports was always to be a team player 😀
Don’t be a sore loser.
It’s not over til it’s over.
keep working to get better!
Learning how to be a good loser (and a good winner) was my biggest lesson.
I have never really been one to play sports but watching my sons it teaches them how to be team players and gives them something to focus on instead of being out and running around like alot of kids they have the practice and games to look forward too.
If you stay calm you’ll figure out what needs to be done to be successful
Never give up!
I learned how to work as a team!!
My biggest life lesson I have learned from sports is that it is just as important to be a gracious winner as it is to be a gracious loser.
My biggest lesson is that I’m a better supporter than player! (Seriously.)
To keep trying even when I’m not good at something!
with hard work anything is possible

never give up, not matter what
Play to have fun and not always need to win
Sports has taught to be a team player and celebrate my win.
Win or lose, always show sportsmanship.
Give it all you’ve got.
TO GIVE GIVE UP AND ALWAYS TRY HARDER
Never give up
Sports have taught me how to be part of a team and to be a good sport.

My biggest life lesson is how to compete
I have learned patience from sports

My biggest lesson was work as a team

I learned that you can’t always win and to always do your best.
Never give up even when you’re behind in the count!
I didn’t play sports because my father told me I wasn’t coordinated enough. I have encouraged my children to try sports because I’ve learned since that it is about being part of a team and feelling self accomplishment not just winning or being the best.
that you have to work together
I’ve learned that win or lose, it’s all about how you played the game. Same with life, there will be ups and downs but it’s all about how we use that knowledge for the future.
That it is ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them and do your best.
I enjoy watching sports from time to time
I’m guessing you watched 6 million dollar man, not million dollar man. having fun is more important than winning. not sure if life or sports teaches you that.
Practice makes perfect.
In the comments section of this blog post, tell me: What’s the biggest life lesson you’ve taken from sports?
when your team has a winning season 26/27 seasons your first 27 years of life,and then in the has 12 have zero!..you learn just how special a winning team is!
Sports have taught me how to be apart of a team
I learned that I’m terrible at them, LOL. But I love watching the Olympics. 😀
I learned that some people take sports FAR FAR too seriously instead of just having some fun exercise with some buddies. And that men love to watch it mindlessly so you should have your own TV to escape to.
If you don’t believe in yourself, you might as well not even step on the field/track. Belief that you can do anything encourages being a champion.
Whether you win or lose, you still get the satisfaction of knowing you tried your best.
I learned the value of teamwork
Any given Sunday, nothing is for sure in any sport
How to deal with disappointment, when losing.
To not only be a gracious winner, but to also be a gracious loser. You can’t win all the time, but just give it your best shot.
Through adversity dreams are accomplished.
everything can change in a moment, nothing is ever certain.
It takes a team effort to win
You win some, you lose some
Don’t underestimate the underdog and the power of hardwork, inspiration and focus
I learned that teamwork is more important than individual effort.
Sports help you learn that practice pays off.
That teamwork is always the best way to make it to your goal.
Never get to cocky..
practice may not actually make you perfect, but it does make you better.
Sports can help build friendships.
Working together as a team
I think the team participation and being there to support eachother is the best lesson. thanks for the chance.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is to keep going even when things don’t look like they’re going in your favor. Don’t give up! Lots of come-from-behind wins have shown that. 🙂
Sports helps to build confidence and self-awareness.
To work as a team.
Teamwork is key
How to work as a team.
The biggest lesson I learned out of sports is how to be a humble winner.
