Fridays Are For One Question

Here we are in October, the month which, at least in my opinion, is the epicenter of the sports universe. You’ve got the baseball postseason virtually every night, the middle of the college football season, and the NFL all in full swing. It’s a great month, only missing March Madness. But I digress.

October always provides healthy fodder for amazing sports plays. So that’s what this week’s question is all about:

“What’s the one sports moment from history you wish you could have seen live?”

**The goal of “One Question Friday” is simple: To show that everyone has something funny, engaging, creative, and worthwhile to say. So comment away! Be real. Be creative. Think hard. And check back to see how others answered the question.

    I think it would have been pretty neat to watch Phelps in the Beijing Olympics.

    Jordan’s shot over Craig Ehlo in game five of the first round of the playoffs. Must have been like… 1990? Maybe earlier. I can still see it in my mind, watching that game on TV and spazing when he hit that shot.

    Well I have a sickness when it comes to sports moments…it’s all about the Red Raiders for me. I wish I could have been in the crowd when Harrell hit Crabtree (who was in double coverage) with that game-winning TD against Texas.

    “Got the big man! Crabtree, breaks free! Touchdown Red Raiders!!!”

    Probably the race Paul was talking about running in the Bible…BOOYA!!!!

    Seriously though, I would have loved to have seen the kids get that ball back from Hercules in his back yard.

    Ok, I got chills when Nadal beat Federer at Wimbledon. Such class and grandeur. I also would love to have seen Walter Peyton play for the Bears.

    Nolan Ryan’s 7th no hitter.

  • Jeremy says:

    I would have loved to see Kirk Gibson hit the home run off of Dennis Eckersly in the World Series. The limp and the arm pump would have been great to see live. Especially if you were a Dodgers fan.

    On February 22, 1980 an amateur U.S. Hockey Team overcomes incredible odds by beating the Red Machine of the USSR in the Lake Placid games. The year before the USSR beat the NHL All-Stars 6-0 and had dominated the World Championships.
