    Nothing else can deliver such a roller-coaster of emotions

    Nothing else can be so thrilling yet so painful, and both at the same time

    There is nothing to compare it too ... Game 7, Yankees Vs Red Sox, is in a league of it's own

    It's Ali & Frazier in a fight to the death ...

    Secretariat leaving them speechless at the Belmont {CAUSE HE WAS MOVING LIKE A TREMENDOUS MACHINE!!} ...

    The USA hockey team Vs the USSR at Lake Placid {DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!?!} ...

    Bobby Thompson's shot heard round the world {THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT, THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!!} ...

    Namath strolling off the Orange Bowl turf at dusk, one finger lofted in the air ...

    Willis Reed limping out of the lockerroom for a Game 7 ...

    Carlton Fist willing that ball fair ...

    Bird & Magic for the championship of each other ...

    Reggie launcing three bombs into an October night ...

    Willie Mays making a Game Saving Catch in the WS that still looks like an optical illusion ...

    Don Larsen one October day, 27 up, 27 down ...

    Messier's calming the nerves of an entire city with his bold words followed by a hat-trick ...

    Kirk Gibson limping out of the dugout for just one swing ...

    Seabiscuit, the little train that could, conquering the mighty War Admiral in a match race for the ages ...

    etc. etc. etc.

    THIS IS ALL OF THOSE THINGS AND MORE ... ALL ROLLED INTO ONE!!!!

    CAUSE THIS IS GAME 7 ... YANKEES Vs RED SOX

    This post was for Yankees and Red Sox fans ... disgruntled Mets fans need not apply

    This has nothing to do with bitter Mets fans ... you wouldn't even begin to understand what's at stake

    BTW, don't you have bigger fish to fry ... like which manager will be attempting to rescue the Mets from the cellar next year?

    I agree with you. That's exactly what it is like.

    BTW - the Seabuscuit story is the most compelling you can find. the movie was great, and the whole story is as great a sports moment as you can get. And I don't even follow the horses!!

    hey you have to add a hockey moment for some of us hockey fans in here....




    How about Steve Yzerman's winning goal from the Blue line in double OT in 1996?

    The biggest hockey moment actually did not happen in an NHL game.

    Team America, circa 1980.

    The next biggest would be Paul Henderson vs. the Russians some 7 years earlier.

    The greatest moment in NHL History is happening right now. It goes by this name:

    THE LOCKOUT

    another hockey moment, the islanders recovering from 3-0 down to beat the penguins in 1975. The last team to win a playoff series after trailing 3-0. In their next series they fell behind 3-0 to the Flyers and tied it at 3 before losing game 7.

    Schilling&#39;s game last night is comparable to the Willis Reed game.

    [The greatest moment in NHL History is happening right now. It goes by this name:

    This is actual the dumbest moment in NHL history by the owners and players&#33;

    I understand where you are coming from GJ & Ham. We all take sports seriously here as evidenced by this website-- the intensity and passion of a 7th game in baseball series, O.T in hockey in the playoffs is something you live and maybe die for if you are on the losing side. It is only more intense when that is against your biggest rival for your Yankees.
