18 of the Best Fictional Sports Teams We Always Root For
Miami Sharks from Any Given Sunday
The team may be fake, but the title comes from a novel by a very real football player. The book On Any Given Sunday by Pay Toomey contains a line that, on any given Sunday, a football team can win or lose. The Miami Sharks are flailing with their coach of 30 years when a new, young owner comes around thinking about how to take the team in a new direction. Through wins and losses, injuries and egos, the team is always ready to play on Sunday. The film shows the tension between players, coaches, and owners that exists in real sports teams. There is no sugar-coating this team and the realism is a huge benefit.
