I've had a few but the tops has to be the time I had an unassisted triple play in baseball. Playing 2nd base w/runners at 1st and 2nd and no one out. I'm cheating over to 2nd to keep the runner close. Just then, the batter rips a line drive right over the top of 2nd. I reach up and catch it snow cone style. 1 out. When I land, I land right on 2nd. 2 out. Neither runner had any idea I caught it and just kept running. When the runner from 1st made it to 2nd, I just tagged him. 3 outs. All standing on the bag at 2nd. My fateful moment.

I was fighting for 1st place in a martial arts tournament in the black belt division in Helena, MT. The fight was to move onto nationals. This was full contact, which I love and I had never fought this guy. The place where we were fighting evidently forgot to pay their heating bill. It was the middle of winter and it was damn cold in there, you were close to seeing your breath.

In any event, we were going at it hard, when I saw a spinning hook kick come in. I went to block it and counter and slipped. My guard dropped and I caught it full force on the nose. My nose got busted, which was not a big deal, but the ref stopped the fight for the doc to take a look. I told the guy I was fine, but my instructor wanted to stop the fight. I told him there was no way in hell, I was going to let him do that.

I went back in and won the fight and went onto nationals.

My football team was playing in our division rival's stadium; the winner was to move on and the loser was to go home.
Down 10-7 late in the 4th quarter our stud QB tossed a 43 yard strike on 3rd down to put us at the 1 yard line and our big-time RB took it in from there.
Our D got stiff the rest of the way and, even though they had home crowd advantage, our opponent was hapless and scoreless the rest of the game. The closest they came was a 4th-and-2 pass to their TE that our DB knocked down. It was great.
Their fans still cry about that play to this day. Their tears are like honey.

Playing youth baseball 30 years ago. We played an important game against our biggest rival, and I hit the one and only home run I ever hit in organized baseball. There was a tiny story about it in the old Jackson County Advocate weekly newspaper and it mentioned my name.

Basketball tournament in 8th grade. The score is going back and forth then in the fourth qtr the other team has the ball and is trying to eat up time, however one of the guards gets a steal and I haul ass down the court w/ some defenders waiting for me. My guard drives down the court see's me filling the lane and passes it to me I lay it up and goes in. I run over to the stands and give my dad a hug. Game goes to OT and we win and I finish the game w/ 18 points and 12 Rebounds.

I was a 3rd string QB for my team and had just moved there so I was unfamiliar with the playbook. I was sitting on the bench, not really paying attention when the long-time starter got hit in the back.
The 2nd string guy went in and was really ineffective, then he got his knee rolled onto. Next thing I know, Boom! I'm in.
My coach was an old grizzly Italian dude but he knew his stuff. I went out there and basically just handed the ball off to our all-star RB for a while. Then we decided to play action. Hell, I passed for 2 TD's and 185 yards.
The next week, I was the starter. I had a few bad moments here and there but all in all, I played really well. I'm a scrambler, type of QB so I could beat you either way. We made the playoffs and in the 1st round, I scored the winning TD on a QB sneak with 00:03 on the clock!

We lost in the 2nd round, unfortunately. Afterwards, Coach D quit and signed on with a new expansion team in Albuquerque. He signed me as their new QB. Go Aztecs!

My personal best moment was in Junior Midgets football. I was on the punt team and we punted down to the other team. I hustled down the field and blasted the punt returner right after he caught the ball. He fumbled it into the endzone where I landed on it for a Touchdown. My one and only touchdown ever.

The best team moment was when we were playing our closest rivals in high school. We lost to them the year before by 3 points in their stadium. We were playing this game in their stadium again. We went up 7-0, then 7-7. Then we went up 14-7, then it was 14-14. This same pattern, 21-14, 21-21. Then we took the lead with about 2 minutes to go in the game 28-21.

They got the ball back and scored a touchdown, 28-27. There was about 1 minute left in the game and they decided to go for 2. They ran it right up the gut and were stuffed at the goal line and we won the game 28-27. Best revenge ever.

Blocked punt; lined up in the gap between C and G; ball is snapped and I exploded out of the gate expecting contact;; but they each went a different way. CLear path to the punter.

After failing miserably at RB, the day coach tried me at FS was like finding the perfect Playboy model to pound. I went from suck to fuck shit up in one play.

Awesome.

My actual REAL best sports moment was when I was a Freshman in HS.

I made the Varsity Golf team, (I was the only frshman to ever do so up to that point).

We were in the last tourney of the year and we were playing a course that I knew like the back of my hand. It's the 5th hardest course in the state right now but back then it was #1. I must have played this thing 500 times.

Anyway...

I teed off #1 and instantly knew I was going to kick ass...
I birdied the 1st 3 holes, then bogeyed a par 3, finished the front 9 at -1.
At the turn my coach told me that I would have to finish under par, (which I had never done) if we were to have a chance to win.

The next 5 holes I went even par, then on a par 5 I got greedy and went for the green in 2. SPLASH... Double Bogey.

So now I'm sitting at +1 with 3 to go. A par 3, a par 4 then a 5...

I hit a shot on this 175 yard par three that damn near holed. Tap-in birdie..
Even par.
The par 4 was a wicked dog-leg left and I have a natural fade so I knew to play for par.
I got the 4 then on to the 550 yard par 5...

My driver, a top flight 100 compression and a tail wind gave me a 300 yard drive, (keep in mind I'm a chubby 14 year old).
I had 250 to the green and you don't want to hit it over the green, (OB).
The longest I ever hit a 3 iron in my life was 210. I took that bitch out and swung as hard as I could. Got a great spin, on the green in 2.

10 foot putt for Eagle.
Deep breath. Breaks hard left.
Sunk it.
My very 1st eagle. I pissed myself.

We still lost the tourney but I was the man and got a medal for best round at -2.

I didn't play much my junior year of football. Special teams and mop up duty mostly. One particular game our starting OLB missed a tackle and the coach got pissed. He turned around and grabbed the closest guy to him (me) and said "GET THE HELL IN THERE." I could actually hear the assistant coach asking him what the hell he was thinking as I ran into the game. You just sent a 6'-2" 160 lb kid in to play linebacker!

About the 3rd play I'm in there the QB drops back and I slide into my zone. The QB tries to hit a kid on a slant, but fails to notice the skinny kid in the way of the route. The pass could not have been more perfectly thrown to me. I pick it off, meander 70 yards and score what ends up being the game winning touchdown.

I played Golf in High School too. I had to take an extra class one semester because I had failed English the prior semester. That meant that I had about 15 minutes to get from school to the Golf Course. One time I forgot by clubs and my coach got pissed, but let me use his. He had some really nice clubs. They felt so good swinging them, I was sort of pissed that they were that good.

Anyway, I got a hole in one on a 180 yard 25+ yard elevation green. You couldn't see the hole from the tee, but when I walked up to the green it was in.

Asshole.
I've been playing for 25 years and I've never hit one.
Came within 1/2 inch last year on a similar hole. 7 iron, ball plugged right next to the hole.

On the same hole, my playing partner saw what I did. He was in the sand right next to the green. I guess he got so nervous having seen what I did, that it took him 6 shots to get out of the sand. We still won.

Was playing in a Babe Ruth World Series tournament in Lebanon, MO. Top of 9th (we were HOME team), 2 outs, 2 runners on, my team is up by 1.....batter hits it in the gap and the runners are advancing around, guy rounds third. I'm playing LF and I field the ball and with all my might I chucked the shit from damn near LCF fence....one hopped it to homeplate on a fucking bulls-eye throwout to our catcher.....we win the game and made it to the finals where we got hammered 14-6.....(12 runs in the first 2 innings ROFL)

2 plays, both baseball.

One was similar to the Ozzie/Borroughs play, but the opposite direction. Men on 1st and 3rd, 2 down. A grounder got hit to my right, I made a couple of quick steps and a dive for it but as I started in the air, my 3b got just enough glove on it to pop it up and back a little bit. I didn't bare-hand it Ozzie-style, but I kicked my left leg up and kicked it forward as I was in the air. It skipped right to where I landed, I grabbed it and fired to 2b from my knees to get the force at second. Ended up saving a run in a game we one by 1. Butt lucky? Perhaps, but it was still a damn athletic play.

Another one I've always been kinda proud of because I flat outclevered a guy was on a SB attempt. The catcher fired it high and wide of the bag as I was coming over from SS to field the throw. I jumped over the sliding runner and caught the ball. I circled behind him and waited for him to bring his hands off the bag to brush himself off. A quick swipe tag later and we were out of the inning. I'm pretty sure that kid never forgot to call timeout after reaching base again.

In football, I once made an open-field tackle in practice on our QB. This is notable only because he was a finalist for the Wendy's HS Heisman that year and is now a major league reliever. Yeah...I wasn't a very good football player.

Interceptions for touchdowns are my favorite plays as a player. I never played organized football, dammit, but we played lots of big pickup games on our high school field, and I remember making exactly the same play you did in one of those games, even the same distance. Got to run right by the practicing pompon squad on my way to the score, too. Big win.

Not really a cool sports moment, but at one point I was playing a pickup game of football at a big picnic in high school, and made a reception or an interception or something. The cutest girl in the school (oh my, she was cute) was lying in the grass on her stomach watching the game, and I got tackled more or less right in front of her. When I came up, I'd impaled my elbow on a stick somehow. While it looked gruesome and took forever to heal, it oddly never really hurt. But it was bleeding and ugly and since it didn't hurt I shrugged it off and kept playing even with blood running down my elbow, proving to the cutest girl in the school that I was one tough mofo and I think more than offsetting her getting grossed out by seeing it happen.
