    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.

      Wow, I've never been a soccer (football!) fan but I've heard stories of those Premier League matches.  I would've loved to see that comeback.  Three goals in seven minutes is unheard of.  Even I know that.

    1985 match-up between the New York Giants vs Chicago Bears, Lawrence Taylor (Giants), and Michael Singletary (Bears), Oooh-Weee...they were on fire!

      Two great defenses.  Cold.  Windy.  Whiffed punt.  Big hits.  Awesome.

    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.

      I wish I was alive when that Soviet game happened in 1980.  What a thriller and amazing upset.  I never knew about that Summit game.  I'll have to look it up!

    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.

      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.
