My greatest sports event ever - was it yours?


I'm 57 years old, and I have been a more-or-less rabid sports fan for about 50 of 'em. And it has never been this sweet.

I was 18 in 1973 when I experienced my worst sports event ever, and 19 when it was nearly as bad all over again (and I think y'all know which two events I'm talking about). We still need to beat Notre Dame a few more times to fully get rid of that badness, but most of it just went away in three glorious hours. Maybe Notre Dame beat us for two national championships instead of just one that we've beat them for--so far--but they never curb-stomped us for a national championship. Put that in your little pot of gold and smoke it, leprechaun.

And by the way, here's a big shoutout to clearwall, jd217, eric murtaugh, and all the other jerkwads from OFD for showing their green butts on another team's site, and making this all the sweeter. Y'all have a great day now.

I think before this it was probably the '92 championship against Miami, because we got so little respect going into that game yet kicked butt so convincingly. Back in my long-ago days of Yankee fandom, it was pretty sweet when my guys came from 14 games back in August to win it all in '78. I got a huge thrill when Mickelson won the Masters in '03 with that incredible back 9 on Sunday capped by a hellacious birdie on 18.

The only one that might've reached this level was when my man Tom Watson nearly took the British Open a couple of years back. But he didn't.

So this is it. The greatest sports moment of my life. How many of y'all fell the same way? If something is better, tell us about it. Stories are good.
