    Last night. LeBron is offically to Basketball what Peyton Manning used to be in Football or like the Cubs are to Baseball. A complete choke artist when it comes down to winning the Big Ones.:p

    1995 World Series. Game Six. The Indians don't pinch-hit for Jim Poole, because they want to leave him in the game to face David Justice. Poole fails to get a bunt down to advance the runner, and then gives up a solo home run to Justice to lead off the bottom half of the inning. The game ended 1-0 Braves. [face_plain]

    Even irony hates Cleveland.

    One event stands out to me: the 1984 NBA draft. The Blazers could have had Michael Jordan or Hakeem Olajuwon. But they chose Sam Bowie. Sam Bowie! :oops: And who won all the championships from 1991-1998? Jordan and Olajuwon. :oops::oops:

    In 1998 Minnesota Vikings kicker Gary Anderson didn't miss a kick all year. With 2 minutes left, leading 27-20 the Vikings attempt a 38yd field goal which Anderson misses. In overtime Falcons kicker Morten Andersen wins the game with a 38yd field goal.

    The Vancouver Grizzlies could have had Steve Nash. Instead they chose Big Country Reeves.

    They couldn't have had Olajuwon, he went #1 to the Rockets.

    Your points stands re Jordan though. :p
