The Most Awesome Sports Game Ever
That headline is a bit misleading. I don't have the answer for the most awesome sports game ever, but I have my favorite, and I'm sure you do too.
I thought this would be a great question to pose to the Whale Nation after watching the Syracuse/Virginia basketball game last week. If you are like me, after the Orange were down by 16 points in the second half, the natural thought was that the game was pretty much over, and the Cavaliers would be advancing to the final 4 round.
Obviously that didn't happen. Syracuse started making some great plays, whittled down the deficit, and eventually won the game in one of the most exciting sports contests I have ever seen.
We've seen lots of the 'come from behind' games so far in college basketball playoff games, and that's what makes it so exciting. My question to you is, what's the most exciting, awesome sports game you've ever seen? It could be a game you watched on TV, listened to on radio or actually attended the game.
My favorite? It was when the New York Giants (who had a regular season record of 10-6) defeated the 19-0 New England Patriots in the Big Game back in 2008. No one thought this was possible, but it happened. The Patriots were without a loss, and about to become the first pro football team to have an undefeated season. It went down as one of the biggest upsets in sports history. I will never forget that game.
So, what's your favorite sports game of all time?
