This thread is to discuss and post your most memorable sporting moments. Different to what the Funny thread is about, as we're not posting about just funny incidents that happen off the field but great football, basketball, olympic moments that you remember from your childhood until now.
What were they and was a sad/happy/funny/scary moment for you?
I'll go first. Most are probably familiar with this, it's one of my most memorable Olympic moments ever, and funny:
It's made even better listening to it in french, as the commentators are so hilarious as they cheer and encourage the swimmer to keep going.
I'll go with James Harrison's 100 yard interception return for a touchdown run in the Superbowl.
So many great things about this. From the fact that sprinting 100 yards nearly kills Harrison(haha). Then on the play itself the sheer number of amazing blocking that made it possible was just fantastic effort. Some of the guys from the secondary throwing a block then getting up and running the play down to throw ANOTHER. I just love that play.
My personal favourite is that ice skater from Australia. It was hilarious. Steve Bradbury won gold & still doesn't know how.
His story can be found on wikipedia:

I have a couple I guess.
This one is prolly the most relevant to this thread. 2004, I was a kid. I'm not gonna lie and say I remember watching it, but I think we were at school and we were allowed to listen to the radio. Then after coming back home we realised how big of a deal it was. In the last second, in 2004 Olympics, Ginobili scored a winner against the world champs (and then we got carried by him and got a golden medal).
"La palomita de Ginobili", called like that because palomita = diving header in football
Then I have 2 more moments.
Milan / Liverpool in 2005, that match taught me that in football, anything can happen in any moment. The match ain't lost till the end. Since that day players like Gerrard (versatile midfielders) have been my favourites.
And well, this last one made me realise that I'm a lucky charm. I had been suspecting it for years but I wasn't sure if it was true
Arsenal was losing 4-0 (it wasn't aired on TV). Dunno where I said (I think here actually) "Give me a link, I'm a lucky charm" and Arsenal ended up winning 7-5. It wasn't a really important match at all, but the comeback was simply epic.

Holy crap how did I forget this one, prolly the goal I yelled the most in my life:

Hurtful for me as a Bayern fan, so all the more memorable
