Your worst days of your life as a sports fan

Nothing like seeing the Pittsburgh Steelers, current holder of the most Super Bowl titles, adding on to their glorified history on this lucky amazing play. I want to forget it (and the game for that matter), but I just can't as it's still fresh in my mind.

November 1, 2010. The day the San Francisco Giants won their first world series was the worst sporting day of my life.

And the day I had to stop using this meme that had given me pleasure for over a decade.

I forgot that they edged the Padres out on the last day of the season. That's gotta sting.

Also, time heals all wounds. I think you should pleasure yourself again.

I was gonna say... how's a Padres fan to call anyone out?? lols

It was easy to call them out because they were so pissed about it. Must have something to do with playing across the bay form the 4 time WS champion A's. Padres fans have long since accepted our mediocrity. Giants fans had not and were constantly reminded of it by A's fans.

5 years later the tables in NorCal have turned dramatically.

Mine, as a Rams fan, may be this week.

My Dad had season tickets in the nose bleeds for a dozen years. I'd say we went to about 60-70 games together over the course of 20 years, still going to a few games a year even after he gave the tickets up (I had moved out of state and it was starting to get difficult for him to get people to go with him. Plus with StubHub we got some great deals on tix the last few years.)

He always found free parking several blocks from the dome and I learned in middle school to walk real fast because he always wanted to beat the traffic after the game. I usually as a kid made him stay to the end even if they were losing by 21 with 2 minutes left.

Even this year with 40-45K in the dome, that place could get quite loud. There is no reason that dome (and the Georgia Dome) couldn't last 20 more years as a NFL stadium with some reasonable renovations like the CVC proposed in its second and final plan (expanded club level and concourse, windows to let in more light, center scoreboard, etc.). The only thing fundamentally wrong with the dome was the stupid lease it had.

Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. My favorite player hits a ridiculous triple with 2 outs and is 90 feet away from sending it to extras. And then Perez pops out. My boss at the time let us all watch the last half inning at the bar because nobody was there. After the game I spent the whole drive home preparing for the return to 60-70 win seasons and being a perpetual joke. That was one of the worst feelings I have ever had.

Hey, look at that. One more trophy, and they'll need another case.

Didn't read through all of these.

Noted a Browns fan already chimed in.

My worst was watching the press-conference in Baltimore when Art Modell announced the team was moving. Nothing on the field compares to that moment.

Worst on field? Game 7, Indians at Marlins, 9th inning. I try to forget that.

Yesterday sucked... :(

I don't care what anyone says... The Seahawks got lucky... they had no control of the game, and then poof, they win. Not to mention that the Wild lost to the :censored: Devils yesterday, and I didn't even get to see it, because NBC crashed and felt like showing the Red WIngs-Ducks game.

Another one was Game 6 of the Western conference Semi-finals. Blackhawks @ Wild

Patrick Kane's game winner was nothing but luck. The puck bounced awkwardly off the boards, right to him, and everyone says that it was all Kane's skill. That's what pisses me off the most... :angered:

And all that was less than two weeks after my best moment. When the Wild beat the Avs (again!) in game 7 OT...

Bengals & Vikes fans on the clock...

Probably the 27-yard missed FG in the playoffs might make top-5 for the Vikes, but if some starts a thread like this a few years from now, I probably won't think to put it on there.

I don't think this Vikings team was going to the Super Bowl anyway. This will not linger like the 1998 and 2009 NFC Championship games because the "what might have been" factor is reduced. If I was the kinda fan that was "NFL #1 and everything else tied for #10" then I may think of this for a long time, but I'm not, so I won't.

Probably the worst days of my sports fan life were when the Sudbury Wolves made the OHL Finals in 2007.

This involves a bit of explanation.

I was gravely ill in May 2007; unable to leave the house most days (depression, mostly).

This just happens to be the time when the OHL Wolves (the major-junior equivalent of the Leafs) make the league championship series.

Anyway, they lost the series 4-2, but just being there brought the city to life. I'm sad that I couldn't really take part in it.

Yeah, that guy is all about lucky breaks....zero skills

His luck even translates to his off ice life, free cab rides and the ladies love him for his soul, not his money.

yeah, he´s a real lucky dude

:lol:

I never said that he doesn't have skill, it was just that one goal that was lucky. I mean a 26 game point requires an awful lot of skill. He may have some luck with that empty netter that was supposedly a hand pass though, but...
