What is the greatest comeback you have ever seen?
The word "comeback" gets tossed around most often in pro sports. However, it is a word that applies to all walks of life. Robert Downey Jr. and Martha Stewart can attest to that. So what is the greatest comeback in your mind?
This is highly debateable; however, I would have to conclude a Connor's Comeback if you will.
I am mentioning Jimmy Connor's knack for coming back after being significantly behind another tennis player time-and-time again...

That one is pretty good :-)
Good question EJ, off the top of my head, Peyton Manning has to be among the top, with a neck injury and sidelined for a year and coming back and playing the way he did, Benard Hopkins, after being incarcerated for 10 years, coming back and dominating boxing, Robert Downey actually made a couple of comebacks. lol. I guess Id give it to Adrian Peterson of the MInnesota Vikings, tearing both ligaments in his knee and coming back and just running over everyone for 2000 yards.
For me, It happened way back in 2005 and it was the UEFA Champions league final match between Liverpool FC of England and AC Milan of Italy.
It was a wonder because AC Milan quickly took the lead and gave Liverpool no chance of survival by scoring three goals in the first half.
But such a comeback it was because not only did Liverpool equalize later in the second half, but the went further ahead to crown the glory by lifting the cup!
Greatest comeback ever - for me!
when the then nameds Casius Clay beat Henry Cooper in the fifth round.
It was cheating though, Clay's corner split his glove so as to give him time after Cooper had floored him in the forth round. So much for cheats never prosper.
George Foreman lost to Muhammad Ali and retired on 1977. Ten years later he returned to boxing and finally in 1994 at the age of 45 he knocked out Michael MOORER to become the oldest heavyweight champion in boxing history. Big George!
Wow, this is a great question. I'm trying to think of a non sports comeback. As far as sports I'd say Adrian Peterson. After tearing his ACL, he came back and had one of the greatest seasons a running back ever had.
The first thing that came to mind was "comeback" in a playoff series, and I don't think I've been more thrilled or shocked than I was with the Red Sox/Yankees series in 2004. Seeing that whole series, live, as it happened was something else. I just couldn't believe it. I don't think there's anything, sports-wise, that can compare.
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.
John Travolta with 'Pulp Fiction' springs to mind. That catapulted him back into the Hollywood big time.
How about Aerosmith in the late 1980's?
The greatest comeback as far as actors go is definitely Robert Downey, Jr.
