Buster Douglas surviving a Tyson punch, getting up, and eventually knocking him out. It was shocking.
Christian Laetner's last-second shot in March Madness.
Watching a minor-league baseball game live where the hometown team came back to win in the bottom of the ninth when runners advanced by being hit by the pitcher, walking, a pitcher balk, and stealing home.
It's wrestling, but I was there in Greenville in 1998 when Ric Flair came back to WCW from the lawsuit exile. We screamed and screamed and screamed.
The Houston Oilers blowing a 30+ lead in Buffalo. And years later, that team as the Titans running back the Music City Miracle against Buffalo to make the Super Bowl.
The aforementioned Sid Bream moment. The entire floor of our dorm exploded in joy.

Originally posted by The GameMichael Jordan's last playoff shot; he made Byron Russell look like a fool. He dribbles fakes out Russell sets up for the mid-jumper and it's good with 5 seconds to go for the Jazz.
Oh man. Jordan pushed off on Russell with his free hand. Anyone who even tries to debate this is just silly.
I've witnessed a lot of great moments in sports, but the two that really stick out for me to this day are Game 6, 1986 World Series and John Riggins touchdown run on 4th down from Super Bowl XVII. Those two things are probably the reason why I love baseball and football above all. Other moments that I love are:
-Dikembe laying down on the court screaming after the #8 Nuggets did the impossible and beat the #1 Sonics.
-Frank Reich's comeback against the Oilers.
-John Elway's first championship.
-Tyree's helmet catch.
-Big Z's no-hitter from last year.
-And, of course, all of the Redskins' Super Bowl victories. XVII was the sweetest, but XXVI was the most satisfying. People forget how dominant that team was.
Am I in Horseville? Because I'm hearing nothing but naysayers!
For me it really is baseball. There is nothing else that makes me feel as light and happy as the moment the first pitch of a ball game is thrown, and I'm sitting amidst thousands of people all trying to will their team on to victory.
