Hope everyone is having a great time from Tuscaloosa to Tucson to Tampa to..... um... Topsham (that's in Maine). Stay safe with those fireworks! Here's a little poll to bide the time between parades and hot dog eating contests. Here's the four most kick-butt, awesome, goosbump giving, America F*#$% Yeah moments in sports (well, my memory anyways), which is the greatest though?
Oh, feel free to mention any moment I forgot. The rules are it must involve Team USA or someone representing the US.
Most EPIC American sports moment?

1996 The US Gymnastics team upsets Russia with a one legged vault landing (gym version of a full court shot) (2 votes)
