    Figured I don't spend enough time in this section of Wackbag. Thought I'd come infect it with my nonsense.

    Anyway, here's my contribution to the thread. I was there, saw it live. Roy Williams was the best defensive player in college football at the time. I stand by that statement.

    Known among Sooner fans as simply, "The Play."

    Remember in the opening of ABC's Wide World of Sports where that skier wiped out? Well that's my favorite

    My current top 3...

    Beltran taking strike 3 from Adam Wainwright in the bottom of the 9th in Game 7 of the NLCS to win the series. They go on to win the World Series against the Tigers.

    David Freese's walkoff homerun in game 6 against the Rangers



    And then I've always thought that this one play kind of summed up the "Greatest Show on Turf" Rams from like 99-02.
    Coming off the 99 Superbowl, Rams open the 2000 season in Denver. On one play, they beat the defense so bad that Torry Holt and Az Hakim are running side-by-side for like 30 yards just chatting it up with each other.

    Top 3

    1) Gibson HR off of Eck in the World Series. I was 12 years old then and I remember freaking out.

    2) The Jeter Flip

    ( I have framed autographed pictures of both of those moments in my house)

    3) Ewing put back dunk against the Pacers in the 94 semi finals. I was sitting 14 rows away and the garden ERUPTED then

    In no particular order...

    First NHL game I ever got to see in person. Game 2 of the 2000 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Capitals at Penguins. Tied at 1 in OT with the Pens on the PP. Jaromir Jagr rips a wrister past Olaf Kolzig's ear for the win. Loudest crowd eruption I've ever been a part of.


    Marc-Andre Fleury's save on Nick Lidstrom in the waning seconds of game 7.

    God damn, that was 17 years ago? I remember being glued to the tv for every one of those Ranger games.

    One mans best is another mans worst. By the way, I was at that game. Worst seats I ever sat in, but at it. And probably the greatest single play I have ever witnessed live, was at that game. Endy Chavez's catch.

    This is the greatest game I ever went to (maybe one of the greatest games ever played) and in culminated in with the greatest moment I have ever seen live:

    Good one but the 1992 Dream team was the best. (I feel old)

    They won every game by a shit ton of points, how exactly is that better than Jordan hitting the winning shot?

    I don't really see how a string of blowouts against inferior competition is a great "moment".

    My favorites were all my own sports moments. I enjoyed the US beating the USSR as much as anyone but it's not even close to winning the 8th grade CYO championship.

    In no particular order...
    -Miracle on Ice against the Russkies. It wasn't the gold medal game, but it was certainly the most memorable.
    -Hanging out at Johnny Red Kerr's restaurant, watching the Bulls win multiple Championships.
    -White Sox Scott Podsednik's walk off homer in game 2 of the 05' World series.
    -Patrick Kane's Stanley Cup winning OT goal.
    -1986 NFC Conference Championship - Bears 24, LA Rams 0. During the 4th quarter, it began snowing just as Richard Dent was sacking the Rams QB, and Wilbur Marshall ran it 50+ yards for the TD.

    The entire crowd actually began to cheer the snow.

    Remember the question of the thread is favorite and/or greatest sports moment. Not favorite and/or greatest team.

    Mets/Giants game May 2007. Armando Benitez balks in the tying run then gives up the walk off to Delgado. I was at the game and the place was literally shaking. I'd heard the "shea shake" described, but that was the first and only time I experienced it.

    Watching "The Drive" on TV while praying to my John Elway poster. Tebow's nice, but Elway is the only God I've ever seen walk this earth.
