As Landon Donovan deposited the jabulani ball into the back of the net this morning, sending the USA through to the knockout rounds of the World Cup, many people had to be thinking that this was one of the best sports moment of their lives.
We here at NEPD would like to know what your top three sports moments were, what really made you stand up, yell, wake the neighbors, or high-five a perfect stranger? We can exclude the three Patriots Superbowl victories as the lists might get a bit repetitive.
While the Donovan goal certainly got me off my seat, it won’t crack my Top 3 list — I’ll let you guys handle the Patriots moments:
Big Papi Walkoff(s) – Take your pick… either the Game 4 or Game 5 heroics were pretty insane.
Tate to Holloway – The Capital One Bowl hail-mary (video here) left me and my brother-in-laws in a dogpile in our living room with a pregnant Mrs. NEPD cowering in the corner fearful for our unborn child. If you didn’t know it, I’m a die-hard Hawkeye.
And There’s a Steal by Bird! – I remember watching this with my dad on about an 18-inch TV that wasn’t even “def”. That said, it’s the first time in my life that I recall being excited about a game – and that is something to remember.
