And now for something completely different.... Doyle Brunson is a fountain of knowledge, stories, and experiences. Most interviews in the past featuring the 84-year-old legend have focused exclusively on poker and his life as a gambler. However, when 5th Street Sports interviewed Doyle, we were determined to go beyond ordinary expectations. We were far more interested in discovering what really makes Doyle tick inside. Indeed, what are his greatest passions? What does he enjoy most, that is -- when he's not playing poker or wagering on sports? The answer is clear: Doyle loves watching movie westerns. Given his pedigree -- born and raised in Texas, living in Nevada, with a summer home in Montana, while living the life of a modern-day wrangler -- Doyle is something of an expert on this unique genre of American cinema. 5th Street Sports correspondent Nolan Dalla sat down at dinner with Doyle, recently. Together, they discussed the greatest movie westerns of all-time. Prior to this interview, which took place at Roma Deli in Las Vegas in May 2018, Doyle was asked to come up with a list of his "20 favorite westerns." Doyle couldn't contain himself. He not only came up with 20 great westerns. He tripled our request and listed 60 favorites. Doyle probably could have listed 100 movies and talked about every single one of them. Most incredible, without any notes or references, Doyle remembered intricate details about each movie and shared with us why each film on his list meant something special. Here is PART 1 of the series, which ranks Doyle' favorite movie westerns -- #31 through #60. The video clip runs about 20 minutes. CLICK LINK HERE Doyle's list: 31. Big Jake (1971) 32. A Man Called Horse (1970) 33. Broken Trail (2006) 34. Stagecoach (1966) 35. Major Dundee (1965) 36. High Noon (1952) 37. Wyatt Earp (1994) 38. Hour of the Gun (1967) 39.

Hondo (1953) 47. Silverado (1985) 48 Once Upon The Time In The West (1969) 49. Tom Horn (1980) 50. The Alamo (1960) 51. Young Guns (1988) 52. The Undefeated (1969) 53 Joe Kidd (1972) 54.

Are we watching a modern miracle on ice? The NHL's Las Vegas Golden Knights have been called the greatest underdogs sports story in history. No one -- no fan, nor any expert -- expected an expansion team made up of castoffs from other hockey clubs to be competing for the most coveted trophy in the game, the Stanley Cup. Pre-season odds on the Golden Knights winning it all in their first year were as high as 300-1. So, are the Golden Knights the greatest underdog story in sports history? The answer is probably -- yes. Other notable sports upsets we remember took place within a single game, a playoff series, or perhaps weren't quite as outlandish as first thought. It's inconceivable that a new team, including untested players, coaches, and management would rise so quickly to the pinnacle of their sport. Here's a short list of the most cited "great upsets" in American sports history. Where do you think the Golden Knights rank? VOTE HERE ON TWITTER. Some other great sports upsets: 1969 -- Baseball's New York Mets go from worst to first ("Miracle Mets") 1969 -- AFL's New York Jets upset NFL's Baltimore Colts as 16-point underdogs. 1980 -- USA Olympic Hockey Team ("Miracle on Ice") 1983 -- North Carolina State upsets Houston in college basketball championship 1990 -- Buster Douglas stuns "Iron Mike" Tyson and takes Heavyweight Boxing crown 2008 -- NY Giants ruin New England Patriots perfect season and win Super Bowl
