    Your favorite sports game ever and why

    Simple. What is your 1 (and only 1) favorite sports game ever?
    I am looking for something like (for example): David Cone's perfecto, yada yada.

    Please be descriptive in describing the game, and why it is so special to you.

    Over to you

    Just 1? Well for games I attended this one Reggie HR, Yanks win 2-0 in the 9th is the one that sticks out the most.

    Probably due to my age at the time, the excitement of the September pennant race and how for most of the game it seemed Boston was threatening while the Yanks did a whole lotta nuttin' I still rememeber the crowd leaving chanting Boston Sucks the whole way out of the stadium.

    And I still have the program where I kept score.
    Baseball is life;
    the rest is just details.

    Threads like this always make the majority of sports games feel left out. It's a popularity contest and very insensitive.

    Not even a question.



    Simply the culmination of an incredible, and to this day, unbelievable run by the Giants.

    NY Giants were playing the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. The Patriots hadn't lost a game all season, quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Randy Moss both had record-setting seasons.

    Giants come into the game as ridiculously huge underdogs. They stay in it all game, and with only a couple minutes left, Eli Manning drives the Giants down the field, including that ridiculous catch seen above. The Giants score with about 1:15, and win the game.

    And even though I'm not a Giants fan, I'm going with that game, slightly over Game 6 of the '09 series and that one game against Boston last year that went 15 innings with A-Rod winning it with a solo homer.

    SB XLII.

    No explanation necessary (already covered anyway). I don't think anything will top that as long as I live.

    The 13-inning Flaherty walkoff game:
    Height of the Yanks-Sox rivalry, July 2004
    Jeter's dive into the stands catch
    A-Rod's pseudo-triple play + throw to home
    Cairo's two triples
    Sierra's horrible game
    Giambi's failed pinch-hit while he had a stomach virus
    Nomar was the only player on either team not to play... because he wanted a day off
    Sheffield @ 3rd, A-Rod @ SS
    I know I'm missing more

    I was expection to come into this thread and see Tecmo Super Bowl as the first reply.

    The Giants/Pats Super Bowl for way too many reasons.
    I'm in your thread, stealing RYMASTER or Ryan_Yankees' identity.

    Err, the lame duck session is the one before the new members are sworn in. It has nothing to do with the "deep-poop" "he" is in.

    Your question is a great one...

    my bad... i thought you were referring to the next 2 yrs---meaning that you were projecting that he'd lose in 2012 despite his incumbency. edit: and the congress part meaning that they would be unable to get anything done because of the dem loss of majority
