    Boise State Fiesta Bowl



    Vin already posted the Boone HR, so here's some TINO!!!



    (PS - I was at that game, sitting behind Sarah Michelle Gellar and called the grand slam to the point where the security guards were high-fiving me from the ramp below)

    Daniel LaRusso's gonna fight?!? Daniel LaRusso's gonna fight!!!

    One of my favourite cricketing moments, and proof that the sport is not just 5 days of watching grass grow. In fact, the reason I love the sport is that you can go from not much happening to explosive moments in the blink of an eye. Anyway, here we have Australian bowler Peter Siddle giving himself his own birthday present in the form a Test match hat trick.

    I was in the stadium for this, senior year, two days after my 21st birthday. Hands down my favorite.



    Many great Yankee moments, for some reason this sticks out most in a way

    US vs Brazil WWC 2011. The whole game was amazing, what with the Ref letting Brazil retake a PK, Brazil's second goal being offside yet still allowed, Marta (5 time FIFA player of the year!) being booed by the crowd...and of course Megan Rapinoe's insane left footed cross to Wambach's head in the last 30 seconds of stoppage time. I was so proud to be American that day.


    Never thought I'd see a better game of soccer until the US vs Canada semi-final in the Olympics last year. Sinclair scored a hat trick and still lost. Two great goals by Rapinoe. Some interesting calls by the ref. And Alex Morgan scores in the last minute of overtime. Another insane game. Another last second win by the US.

    Well, I have a new favourite cricket moment. This match only just finished, and was one of the best Test matches I've seen, but this was easily the standout. Ashton Agar is 19 years old, in his first match for Australia, and has walked out as the last man in after watching his team collapse like a house of cards. Instead of getting out for half a dozen or so runs like an ordinary number 11 would, he instead spends two hours smashing England all over the place and breaking half a dozen national and world records.

    Sound is absolutely crappy, but best that can be done for the moment:

    Honestly I thought it was kind of meh. Sure it was a nice nod to a very good player but I just wasn't into it. They brought him out for the 8th with a lead which I thought was kind of a slap in the face. He's the best closer of all time, bring him in for the save.

    Edit: Might as well contribute while I'm here. The greatest home run in major league history.

    @Rox -- on the offhand that the NL went ahead in the 8th and the AL didn't score... there is no save. Hence Leyland bringing him in and doing what they did in the 8th just to make sure he pitched.

    Sure, technically, that's a sound reason, but with the way the Senior Circuit wasn't hitting during that game, that wasn't going to happen.

    :p

    I remember watching this live on TV. The first thirty seconds are the most impactful in my mind. It was Father's Day and Jordan had just won his 4th championship and his first without his father at his side. All that combined to bring out just sheer raw emotion out of Jordan that we rarely saw from him. That's what makes this sports moment memorable in my mind.
