    oh gosh. i mean, those are awful.

    i was thinking more along the lines of "i can't ****ing stand X/Y/Z, but sometimes i'll go on youtube to watch this clip of them, because it was historic and/or slightly cool to see."

    if those two still apply,

    Deep down, I can't lie that in 2014-19, it was helluva fun to watch Steph Curry keep hitting insane threes from deeper and deeper.

    It's cheating, but it fits technically with how this is worded - The Chris Webber timeout.

    This goal and similar from the Grannybagger

    Schilling's bloody sock.

    Yeah... I don't know why, but I can still find it in myself to watch it on occasion.

    The 2014 nfc championship game is my favorite Green Bay Packers memory. Probably not in the spirt of the question though.

    Guess I’ll go with the Falcons inexplicably blowing a 25 point lead to Tom Brady.

    The Giants beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl to ruin their perfect season.

    Any of Derek Jeter or Mariano Rivera's highlights.

    I never forget @Guidman when Laettner hit that shot. I was at the Bulls game that night with my dad and brother as my dad's customer took us (the guy bought season tickets to the Bulls right after they drafted MJ...no wonder why he is a millionaire many times over!). They played the Cavs that night and absolutely smoked them. I barely remember that game itself other then my dad laughing whenever Jordan took a jumper since to our vantage point (we were sitting about 10 rows up behind one of the baskets off to the side, fabulous seats) it look like he is shooting down and would still be in the air long after the Cavs were on the ground. But I never will forget the Duke-Kentucky game because people were literally leaving the Bulls game to watch it in the concord. There was a skybox behind us that we were trying to watch it from as well. When it over the PA system that Duke won by one in OT, you heard this huge "OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" and the buzz in the crowd last for minutes. I swore even the players on the bench were talking about it. I might hate Christian Laettner (though I do respect him, dude was one of the best college players I ever seen and was a decent enough pro who actually have translated great to today's game) just like anyone with self respect should but if I ever meet the dude, I will tell him that story.

    It's a walk-off home run to win the pennant after all, to beat those Cardinals (who had knocked out the Dodgers in consecutive postseasons, of course), so...

    Game 6, 2012 ECF.

    Like when they say you remember where you were when JFK was shot, or 9/11. Dive bar in Queens, eating chicken fingers. Corner TV. Watched in horror as LeBron James on the Miami Heat finally figured it out, eviscerating Boston.

    That one is kind of cheating, so also remember rooting against Kobe in the Magic Finals and leaping to my feet after a 3 at the top of the arc to yell "HE'S JUST TOO GOOD!"

    This rebound and clutch three-pointer. I hated watching it (and I'll never forget where I was - at the Best Western in Colorado Springs. I had just started a new job, I was down in CO Springs to do onboarding and training, and I was in that crappy hotel room after eating some tacos at a surprisingly good restaurant, and couldn't a) be amazed at Allen hitting the shot b) be amazed at Bosh getting the board c) laugh at the Miami fans who left a Final's Game with their team still having a chance to win the title and d) be sad about the prayer I posted)



    For my money, the second most clutch three-pointer in NBA Finals history.

    Public Service Announcement

    the Athletic is currently running an offer for new subscribers. First six months for $1/month. They have a full array of high quality journalists and that price point is insane, so I’m finally giving in and subscribing
