    Without a doubt the best "team" comeback in sports history. Just because of the nature of the rivalry. Red Sox had never beat the Yanks when it counted for 86 years. Then they put together two extra inning wins, get the Bloody Sock and pull away.

    All terrific choices. Peterson is the most amazing since he actually seemed to get better AFTER the injury. I actually just learned about Hopkins. Amazing story. Good calls.

    The Raiders said it best during the '70s. If you're not cheating, you're not trying.

    Two excellent choices. Some might say Travolta's comeback eclipses Downey Jr. because he was an afterthought for a long time before that movie came out. Aerosmith has made comebacks a regular part of their greatness.

    That certainly is the popular choice. Why wouldn't it be? From rehab to Iron Man? Awesome.

    I always love guys like that. The real pests who lull you into a false sense of security and then catch you napping.

    You're the second one to mention him. Not surprising. It was a feat fit for Superman.

    Great pick. I watched the story on this. It was a true testament to the idea that the last thing to go in a boxer is his power. George always had plenty of that.
