When Villanova beat Georgetown for the National Title in 1985.
This was the only time I have seen an entire team be at their best...Their FG Pct as a team was 78.6!!! That's Nuts!!

1995 AL wild card... Game 2...Yankee Stadium, Yanks in the playoffs for the first time since I could walk. Sat 10 rows behind Mattingly on the first base side... Watching the Captain, Bernie and then finally Leyritz. About a gallon of beer was dumped on me from the upper deck... Was the best feeling of my life!!! The screaming of New York, New York... The honking on the streets of the Bronx...

The next 3 games were heartbreaking... Buhner, Martinez and Griffey each hit .900 it seemed like...

Game 3 of the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals. I took my daughter to the game in Raleigh. Series was tied at 1-1. My Canes were huge underdogs to the Red Wings. The game was amazing and we held the lead until the Wings pulled Hasel and Brett Hull scored in the last minute. Then we had overtime. Actually three intense overtimes! Then, Igor Larionov beat the Canes and took our spirit. I knew the series was over. And it was.

Fortunately, we got another chance four years later, and we beat the Oilers in a tight Game 7 that was also a classic. There's nothing better than good playoff hockey!

I couldn't agree more, and despite this mainly being a baseball site, and me being biased, obviously, I believe it is the greatest sport around.

I was at Game 7 of the 1994 National Hockey League Eastern Conference Finals when the New York Rangers beat the New Jersey Devils in double overtime, 2 to 1, to advance to the Stanley Cup finals. As a Ranger fan since 1972, it was fantastic as the Rangers went on to defeat Vancouver for the Stanley Cup. The Devils scored with just 7.7 seconds left in the game and Stéphane Matteau netted the winning goal.

Still have my ticket stub.

Looks like there are more Leaf fans/CDN's at the Florida game tonight (NHL) than there are Florida fans.

It's our March Break up here currently so it's not surprising, as the majority of CDN's head to Florida, that lots of Leaf fans would be there.

I imagine the ticket prices are less than half, even with the exchange rate, than what they are up here!

I believe I got 'saw' and 'watched' intertwined.

Therefore, the best game I ever saw was in the early 1990's when my Alma Mater executed a perfect delayed double-steal to win the State Championship.


Second place was the 1991 NL West Division-Clincher - that started that long run of playoff teams in Atlanta.

That one was particularly weird in that no one, and I mean no one, left the stadium immediately after the final out.

After the initial jumping around, all of the Braves' players stood around and on the pitchers' mound and eye-balled the primitive Fulton County Stadium scoreboard...as the Giants still had to beat the Dodgers to officially bring the title to Atlanta.

The entire crowd was also....just standing and watching...it was eerily quiet.

The very second the Giants won, me and my two pals, having positioned ourselves at the exit, took off.

We made it out of the neighborhood and onto the highway in about five minutes - again, everything was as like an apocalypse movie set.

Obviously, the game was no subject to a local blackout.

It normally took about 45 minutes to get out of a full stadium and maneuver through the bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Pretty Amazing!
