Friday Are For One Question

I know I’m one of only about 47 people who watches every game of the World Series. That’s okay.

But last night’s game was great. Great defense. Low scoring. Won in the 9th inning.

While it was good, it wasn’t one of those sports moments that I’ll tell my kids about (if indeed they care about sports moments). Today’s question is about those moments for you:

“What is the greatest sports moment you have watched?” (And no, it doesn’t count if you saw the highlight of it later. You had to be watching TV, listening to the radio, or seeing it live when it happened.)

    Music City Miracle. And I harshly reprimanded people who “missed it because they were on their way out of the stadium.” SHAME on them!!! SHAME!!! Because:
    A) It’s football. Anything can happen.
    B) YOU DON’T LEAVE A PLAYOFF GAME EARLY! I don’t care if your team is down by 80 in the last 2 minutes.
    C) If you don’t really care that much, make your ticket available to someone who does. MOST of us couldn’t have found a ticket to that game to save our lives. For any price. But I’m not bitter. Just sayin’. . . . 😀

    That is all.

    I was at Game 6 of the ALCS last year when the Rangers beat the Yankees. Most incredible sports moment of my life.

    I got to see the Braves win the ’95 World Series in person. Tom Glavine pitched an incredible 1-hitter, and while I don’t follow much baseball these days, I can remember that last out like it was yesterday. We were at the stadium for at least 3 hours after the game ended. It was chaos, no one wanted to go home.

    Does it matter if I watched it live on TV? If not, then the Iron Bowl of 1972. I was barely 12 years old. Watching at a friends house and when Auburn blocked two punts to come back and beat the Bear Bryant’s unbeaten Crimson Tide …well I just broke down and cried. I remember calling my mom on the phone and just weeping. I’m passionate about college football and at that age probably a little emotional 🙂

    Could this year be a repeat???

    Punt Bama Punt and WAR EAGLE!

    These are great guys. And no, for our purposes, it doesn’t matter if you watched it on TV. It just matters if, like Becky said above, you didn’t watch it at all and only tuned in for the highlights, or you left early only to hear the miracle on the radio.

    Doesn’t count. DOES NOT COUNT.

    Music City Miracle. I was watching it on TV just across the river in the fellowship hall of FBC Nashville (scrapbooking) and after seeing the play on TV, we went outside and could hear the crowds cheering from the stadium. Great sports moment!

    I’m a Cardinals fan.. just being upfront here… so last nights game was tough, but I watched every minute of it… and love watching baseball… but I would say my most memorable was listening to the Miracle on Ice in the car on the radio as we were traveling ! Still remember we nearly crashed as we celebrated, and I was too young to drive at the time, but we went crazy! USA! USA!

  • Rob Kuefner says:

    For clarification… I wasn’t driving. My friend’s Dad was!

    In 2002 I watched Wes Welker gain 251 all purpose yards in a victory against the Longhorns at Jones Stadium in Lubbock. It was one of the best individual football performances I have seen.
