Mine is a tie between Otis Taylor grabbing Ben Davidson around the neck and wrestling him down after he speared Lenny out of bounds and Nolan Ryan getting Robin Ventura in a headlock and repeatedly hitting him in the face after Ventura charged the mound.

Well, I am a Dodger fan. My favorite sports moment is the 1988 Dodger/A's World Series...game one. I have only been to one World Series game in my life and that was it. I went by myself because I knew I may never get the chance again. Kirk Gibson hits the game ending home run off of Dennis Eckersley and I was there to feel the thrill. It was awesome...

I suppose it ought to be a Chiefs moment, but this is the one that first comes to mind:

1982- Orioles trailed Milwaukee by 8 or 9 games going into September. They cut into the margin some, but were still 3 back as the Brewers came to Baltimore for 4 games to finish the season. Orioles had to win all four, or it was over.

They had to sweep a doubleheader Friday night. They swept it. Had to win Saturday, too. Won it; just crushed 'em. Division's now tied, winner takes all Sunday, but the run ended and the Brewers went on to the Series.

You could say it's a memory of a loser, but that Friday and Saturday and the anticipation of what could be, were the greatest two days of sports memories that I can recall. To this day I believe the '82 Orioles were better than the world championship team of the next season.

1992 National Championship Game

One miserable week of “football experts” telling us that Bama would not be able to handle the Hurricanes team speed and athleticism..

One week of Interviews with cocky Miami players, and even former players who thought they had already won the national championship, and were not afraid to show it.

Absolutely everyone in the national media kissing Miami’s butt and agreeing that Miami would crush the Tide.

………………………………………………………………………..

ROLL TIDE ROLL

Alabama absolutely murders Miami in every aspect of the Game. The Crimson Tide Defense beating the crap out of Gino Torretta to the point that he no longer wanted to take the field.

George Teague intercepting Torretta, and later in the game outrunning the fastest man in college football & stripping him of the ball at the 5 yard line to prevent a Miami Touchdown.

Watching the formerly cocky Canes walk off the field after being beaten like Dogs…a HUGE disappointment to the program!!!

Final Score BAMA 34 - Miami 13

The 1970 play with Otis Taylor was the first to come to my mind also. The second, Mets in 1986,Mookie Wilson play with Buckner. Third, 1970 Willis Reed walks onto the court and scores the first 2 baskets in game 7.

The duel with Mr. Ed in Denver - '94. Willie making that cluthc ****ing catch and Joe putting it right where it needed to be.

And also, I rather enjoyed DT's first half against the Raiders on Monday night football, watching him pummel Jeff George was great, and classic.

World Series 1967. Bob Gibson (pitching on three days rest)the Cardinal ace clearly permitted only three hits, striking out ten batters and even adding a homerun blast of his own in the fifth. Gibson cruised to the decisive 7-2 victory. He now boasted a 5-1 record and a 2.00 ERA in World Series competition, with fifty-seven strikeouts in fifty-four innings and only thirty-seven hits allowed.

A very fond memory of my youth.

The 01 World Series.

Because I was there. Because all the pundits said after dropping 3 straight heartbreakers in New York there was no way Arizona was going to win. Because at THAT time, it was in the running as one of the best world series of all time.

Because it started the Yankee downfall. Because we had both Schilling and Johnson at their peaks. And because we all peed our pants a little when after pitching Game 6, Randy came out to be the reliever in Game 7.

The music blaring, the pom poms, that ugly mug stomping out from the bull pen.

Twas awesome.

I don't really see how any of these could be bigger than Joe Carter's home run. He came up in the bottom of the 9th with two men on and his team down by two, and blasted a home run to win the world series. It wasn't like they just needed one, they needed three runs.

Forget a great finish to some regular season game, forget your team wrapping up a title like a one team does every year. Especially forget some winning effort in a failed playoff run. Ending the world series with a home run, it doesn't get any bigger than that.

The only thing that comes close is a last second kick to win a super bowl maybe, but kicks are just kicks. Hitting a home run has got something that a guy that makes 80-90% of his field goals kicking a field goal dosn't have.

Only thing that touches it is Mazeroski, maybe.

After the Keith Cash hit, these would round out my top five:

2. Montana to Davis, as mentioned many times.

3. Grbac to Rison against the Raiders. The game didn't end up meaning anything, but that was a lightning bolt from the sky. It was an amazing finish.

4. Montana to Barnett on fourth down against the Steelers in the playoffs. (Montana played two years, and he's got two of my top five plays ever.)

5. My memory is sadly fading, but I would have to say it was the Chiefs' third special teams TD against the Steelers in 1986, which got us into the playoffs for the first time in 15 years. I don't remember now if it was the field goal or the punt.

Beneath these, there are any number of great catches by Otis Taylor (the one-hander against the Redskins comes to mind), hits by Willie Lanier and his gang, and sacks by Derrick Thomas where he was lined up and you knew, you just knew, that he was about to wreak havoc. Some of those Dante Hall TDs were pretty nice, too.

The Keith Cash thing can't be overplayed, though. We were in the playoffs, we were getting pushed around by a very, very strong team, and I felt like he turned the whole thing around. He brought the swagger back when we needed it most. It was inspired.

The question is "what is YOUR favorite moment in sports history".

When asked of me, that means MY favorite moment. I could honestly give a rat's ass about anything the Toronto Blue Jays did, have done, or ever will do. I could barely care less about baseball in general, and then you add on top a divisional rival that I have no love for?

How 'bout this -- you keep your opinions and we'll keep ours?

my favorite sports moment isn't from any pro sports but myself.

summer of 1978:

I was 9 and lived in a town of 700 people. The Pony League team was short a player and couldn't find anyone from the Little League team to stick around and play that late so I volunteered. I was still in Pee-Wee at the time and the coach wasn't too hip on the idea of getting me killed by letting me play with 13-15 year olds but I insisted and my folks gave their blessing (I think they were hoping I would get killed) so out I went. They put me in center field so I could be "covered" by the older kids on either side. I was terrified something would be hit my way and the first thing that was was a grounder right back up the middle. It took a bad hop and out of instinct I grabbed it barehand. I thought it broke every bone in my hand.

They sent the kid on around first because they were sure I was about to screw up the play but to the amazement of everyone there I threw him out at second.

I also walked 4 times in that game and scored a couple runs because nobody was used to pitching to anyone my sized. It was a great game.

One of my favorite memories because it was the first time I ever got any respect from the older kids for anything... let alone playing ball.

I think Istill have a game of the week tape of the 86 game against the Steelers. I think there was a long Int return by Kevin Ross, a long kick return by another player and I think Bill Maas blocked a field goat that went for a long TD. Great game,it clinched the Chiefs their first playoff spot since 1971. That was a long 15 year drought. But the following week I got tickets for the Jets/Chiefs at the Meadowlands. Got to watch Blackledge struggle terribly, Chiefs lost 35-15. Only highlight of the game for me was when I called the shot, by predicting Albert Lewis would block the next punt. Called it with a crowd of Jets fans laughing at me.
The Otis Taylor catch with Pat Fisher pinning Taylor's right arm behind his back was the greatest catch in Chiefs history.I only saw one picture of that catch years later in a book at a library in NJ. I starred at that photo for 10 minutes, still couldn't believe Taylor made that catch

2003 KSU @ Nebraska. 38-9, and then beating them in basketball at the Devaney center for KSU's first road win in some time. Tipped in on a missed FT, and some NU fan threw a water bottle on the court, gets them T'd up, and we win the game.

2003 Chiefs vs Broncos. Dante's run back was incredible.

Chambliss hit a f*cking screaming line drive about 6 inches off the turf that was headed toward CF when Frank White made one of the best plays I've ever seen. He went into a backhand dive and snatched that ball. He had trouble getting the ball out of his glove and when he flipped it to Patek at SS, f*cking Reggie (who if he couldn't hit a baseball would have been a butcher)came barrelling in and spiked Patek. But he got the 3rd out on that force play and we survived into the 9th.

I'll never forget that play. Had the Royals not blown it in the 9th, that play would be part of highlights every October.

It showed why Frank was the best 2nd baseman of his generation. But it was forever lost in that grand f*ck up of a 9th inning.

3) Sproles running wild in the 03 Big 12 CCG to pound the "Greatest team In College Football History.". So many years Snyder waited, and then it all came together that night.

4) Rolando Blackmon htting the buzzer beater in the West regional to knock off #2 Oregon St. in 1981.

5) Mitch Richmond attacking the hoop and Cahrles Bledsoe grabbing every rebound in the 1988 Midwest regional semi's and leading K-State over the #1 seed Purdue Boilermakers.

Wouldn't say favorite but most memorable for me was when Michael Waltrip won the Daytona 500. This was the race where Dale Earnhardt died. Just watching Darrell Waltrip see his brother win the race for the first time and the moment he was across the line, Darrel was looking back at the corner where Dale wrecked. You could tell he knew it was worse than it appeared to me. But to have that level of attention and concern for Dale when his brother had just won the biggest race of them all spoke volumes to me.

Favorite for me would have to be the D-Backs winning the World Series. What a great finish to a great set of games.

Another memory I have is when my son executed a triple play. He was 7 or 8: 6-6-3: Caught a line drive to third, stepped on third before the runner could get back, threw out the runner at first before he could get back.
I myself was part of the same kind of deal. My friend caught it, landed on first and threw to me for the third out.

I left several out. Most notably the 1985 Game 3 ALCS performance of George Brett.

Brett homered in the 1st, doubled in the 4th, Homered with Wilson on the 6th and singled in the 8th.
But the greatest play was in the 3rd after Damaso Garcia doubled but went to 3rd on Skates Smith's error.

LLoyd Moseby hit a chopper that Brett grabbed while moving toward the 3rd base dugout, wheeled and threw across his body to Sunny who nailed Garcia at the plate.

That play should be on every October highlight reel.

Followed by Bo Jackson's perfect throw to home from the left field corner of the Kingdome. I remember the announcer (Denny Matthews ?) saying "Has that guy got muscles and tendons or pulleys and cables?"

Bo was indeed special. I remember once in Baltimore, he was at the plate, waving his right hand to call time. It was too late because the pitcher was already delivering. So, he brought the hand back down onto the bat handle while the pitch was on its way, and hit the ball into the left field seats. You got the feeling he could do that kind of stuff anytime he wanted to.

my personal favorite was Dane Iorg's Ninth inning hit in Game 6 that scored 2, with Jim Sundberg scoring the winning run. It was amazing. I was 12... I lived for baseball at the time. I dont think any sports moment can top that sports moment... it is frozen in time as a supremely wonderful element of my youth...

Good times.

I am sorry, my favorite moment was at a High School football game.

The team from the big city was suppose to beat our boys by 40 points, the TV guy from the big city said so on TV the monday before the game.

We go on to beat them 14 to 12, and the fool manned up and came to the little city and was arrested at the city limits and thrown in the little city jail(for a couple of hours).

Then the little city took him downtown to an old, old school eatery and forced him to eat some "crow"(cornish hen).

Nothing like an underdog kicking the ass of the favorite.

The 1991 World Series was my favorite sports moment.

Game six when Kirby Puckett homered in the bottom of the 11th against Charlie Leibrandt to cause this phrase by Jack Buck, "And we'll see you... TOMORROW NIGHT!"

Game seven was Jack Morris' famous ten-inning shutout in which Gene Larkin hit in the winning run.

I just turned ten years old a week before the series began and it was the best gift I could ever hope for.

It was October 6, 1980. Remsen St. Marys beat Kee High 8-4 for the state baseball tournyment championship. I started in right field that game. I went 2-4 at the plate with 2 runs scored. I did have one throwing error. But I also had two put outs on fly balls hit to me. It was the first of SIX State Baseball Championships for our school.

The USA hockey win over Russia and then the Gold
medal game to follow over Sweden in 1980.

Iowa Mens basketaball win over Georgetown
to advance to the Final four......1980

1980 was alot of fun I guess.

The Montana - Elway game was special.

THe 1997 playoff game between KC and Denver
will always be in my memory bank. I was at that game. Beleave it or not, NFL films was at that game filming and a one point in the game one of the camera men was up in the SW corner right beside me, four rows from the TOP of the SW corner. About 10 years ago I saw the 30 minute NFL films documentary of the 1997 Denver team that won the Superbowl....I'm on that NFL films of the 1997 Bronco's. Its towards the end of the show,before they play a few clips form that playoff game that we were jobbed. Vaseline and Tony G. non TD. We had a KC Chief defender TACKLED in the endzone when Denver was puniting out of the west endzone. It should have been a safety for a holding call. How the officials missed that is just :banghead:

Wow I am surprised how many baseball memories are being mentioned.

I grew up with a huge Cardinals fan for a father. I guess that it rubbed off on me, and has gotten more intense as got older, so I have many memories of games I was at or watched on the tube. Here a just a few in no particular order.

1) I had tickets to Gm 7 of the '04 NLCS so when Jim Edmonds hit a walk-off HR in Gm 6 I almost tore the house down.

2) Scott Rolen's Gm 7 HR in the '04 NLCS.

3) Jim Edmonds diving catch in center in that same Gm 7.

4) Pujols' top of the 9th, 2 out, 2 strike HR to bring the '05 NLCS back to St. Louis. (Then they lost.)

5) David Eckstein hit a walk off grand slam against the Braves on my wife's birthday last year, and that was the first time I had taken her to a game in STL.

I know it's only D2, but I put it on there because it was a title game and I got to see it in person.

Its kind of depressing to know that you have already seen the greatest game you will ever see in your life in any sport at any level.




Now that I think about it, you have to put Mazeroski's home run up there above any of the other home runs.
