What is the greatest sports game you ever watched?
It doesn't matter what the sport is: football, baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey or golf. Fans have seen a game or match that they believe to be the greatest ever played. Which one is yours?
Nice question. As a Brit I'll go for soccer - football! in my country!.....Two outstanding matches: Brazil versus Italy in the World Cup final in 1970...two outstanding teams performed to the limits in this classic - Brazil had the edge however and with some excellent team work and individual prowess managed to undo the Azzuri 4 goals to one. Pele was the star. This 1970 final has gone down in history.
Liverpool FC versus A.C. Milan in the Champions League final of 2005 saw Liverpool, the underdogs, come back from 3 goals to nil down at half-time to win the ultimate club trophy with an incredible second half performance which saw them score 3 goals in 7 minutes, then go on win the penalty shoot out. One of the greatest come backs of all time.
1985 match-up between the New York Giants vs Chicago Bears, Lawrence Taylor (Giants), and Michael Singletary (Bears), Oooh-Weee...they were on fire!
I would select:
(1) the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" United States Olympic victory over the highly talented Soviet Union hockey team.
(2) the 1972 Hockey Summit victory over the Soviet Union in Game 8; more precisely the winning goal in the "dying" seconds by Paul Henderson for Team Canada.
There were 2-3 moments:
1 - The entire game of the Final of the Rugby World Cup 2011 - edge of your seat stuff, and yay! We won!
2 - Sarah Ulmer winning her Gold in...an Olympics in cycling - just watching her at the end, struggling to breath, she'd put so much into it.
3 - Valerie Adams throwing her first winning shot.
That's terrific! You always love the moments that some people might not have appreciated as much. We don't get Rugby in Chicago much, so I'll have to look up that one.
Apparently its on Canadian cable...I think...friends of ours watch it in Canada if they miss them while they are here. Youtube maybe??
Probably. The only match I ever saw was part of a 30 for 30 documentary about Nelson Mandella and the famous Springbok upset of New Zealand in the World Cup.
We, for Indians, Cricket is our religion and Sachin is our God. Though he retired, he gave us a lot to cheer upon. His records will be there always and no one can beat it. After cricket, we love watching Football and Hockey.

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.

There are a lot of sports now but not all of them have time slots in ESPN. Of course Basketball and Football need their airtime, but I think some sports should have less airtime (like baseball and soccer) and some should have more airtime (like beach volleyball). What do you all...
