Well, number one is a blatant homer-ism, so live with that.

1. Week 2, MNF, Redskins at Dallas 13-0 in the 4th quarter, suddenly Mark Brunell discovers he can throw deep to Santana Moss, and boom! 14-13 and the Redskins find an offense for the year

2. Reggie Bush pushing Leinart into the end-zone to give USC the victory over Notre Dame (the whole game was memorable, but what a play to end it)

3. 6 amazing minutes in Istanbul, when Liverpool over-turned a 3-goal deficit and won the Champions League on penalties.

Here's my top 5:

5. WS Game 3....I still can't believe Geoff Blum hit that homerun.

4. Fresno State vs. USC - REG-GIE! REG-GIE! REG-GIE!

3. Giants vs. Seahawks......I think Jay Feely just missed another field goal :D

2. Spurs vs Pistons Game 5.....how do you not cover Robert Horry?

1. Jets-Steelers....Jets should have won.

Honorable mention:

-USC-ND, just because I didn't actually get to see it

-Jets/Chargers, playoffs

-Colts/Pats, MNF this season :woot:

-Angels/White Sox Game 2 (though I still can't stand Pierzynski or the umpire :cursing: )

Okay, I got a few more:

The Bills beat the Bengals, playing spoiler and doing one of the biggest upsets of the NFL season.

Bobby Abreu at the HR derby, O, wow. He made spacious Comerica Park look like a complete band box.

Insert Witty Signature Here.

1. Wisconsin making the Elite 8 and playing a very respectable conference final vs. eventual Champ UNC (even had a second half lead).

2. Iowa's last second TD vs. USC.

3. Minnesota's punter fumbling the punt vs. Wisconsin.

4. John Stocco's TD run to Beat Michigan.

5. The Michigan / Penn State game (even though I was pulling for PSU)

5. Reggie Bush's performance vs. Fresno State.

6. Ron Dayne's big OT Thanksgiving run (sorry, gotta cling to anything positive he does in the pros).

7. An all-WCHA NCAA Hockey Final Four (refuse to call it by its real name).

8. Wisconsin hockey's 14 game unbeaten streak.

9. Paul Edinger's 50+ yard field goal to beat Green Bay.

10. The NCAA Basketball Tournament (that goes on my list every year).

Watching the NHL lottery Draft, watching Montreal getting into the top 5, and the relief when Pittsburgh got the first pic and not the Ducks.

and then the first NHL game of the year, watching the Leafs over at the guys place with a box of cold drinks ^_^

1.) Penn St. 17 - Ohio St. 10. Awesome game, awesome atmosphere. When Tamba Hali turned Troy Smith's world literally upside down I knew Penn St. football was back in a big way.

I went to the game and I can tell you that that penn st crowd won that football game, tottally overwhelmed Ohio State.

Here's my moments

1. Bengals beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh and all but assure themselves the division

2. Bengals clinch the division at Detroit.

3. Buckeyes victory at michigan. My memory of this game will be listening to it on the radio on a school bus on my way to play a hockey game against Troy High School.

4. Texas vs. Ohio State. It would be higher if the bucks had won, but nonetheless it was a great game that we could have and should have won.

5. Last out of the world series. White Sox dude barehands it to beat the baserunner and The Sox win.

...also (i can't believe i forgot this...)

Notre Dame vs USC.

Eventhough my beloved Irish lost, that was the greatest college game i've seen since....

Michigan vs Texas - Rose Bowl 2005

I don't like either program, but a more exciting college game, you could not ask for...
