Favorite Superdome Memory

Recommended Posts

After hearing the news that the Superdome will most likely be destroyed, I started thinking about my fond memories of the Dome. I have been to many Saints games, but I think my favorite game was Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers knock off the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI. Also, I remember watching my beloved Gators destroy the 'Noles 52-20 in the 1996 Sugar Bowl to claim their first ever national championship. What are some of ya'lls favorite Dome memories?

Super Bowl XXXVI- The game's final play as announced by Gil Santos; I stil get giddy watching this.

"Ken Walter will hold, Lonnie Paxton will snap, from the right hash mark angled to the left for Adam Vinatieri, a 48-yard field goal attempt. Snap, ball down, kick is up, kick is on the way and it is...GOOD! IT'S GOOD! IT'S GOOD! ADAM VINATIERI BOOMS A 48-YARD FIELD GOAL AND THE GAME IS OVER! AND THE PATRIOTS ARE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS! THE PATRIOTS...ARE...SUPER BOWL...CHAMPIONS! THE BEST TEAM IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE!"

4 memories here stick out...

--Jordan's baseline jumper against Georgetown in the '82 national title game.

--Keith Smart's last second shot vs. Syracuse in '87.

--Vinateri's FG in SB XXXVI

--Carmelo Anthony leading the Orange over Kansas to give Jimmy Boeheim his first title in '03.

I still get chills when I hear that call... :D

Best moment in Patriot history, IMO. February 3, 2002.

This would be my favourite memory... the orangemen finally pulling through.

Shut up.

Feaking Nick Collison not being able to hit a free throw.

Vintiari hitting that field goal was so freaking awesome. My favorite Super Bowl moment.
