Top 10 Sports Moments of 2008


Tonight for their Top Ten plays, Sports Center showed the top ten sports moments of 2009. 
Here is my list in no particular order. 

  1. Tiger Woods forcing a playoff and winning the US Open with a torn ACL.
  2. Eli Manning breaking free and completing a circus catch to David Tyree to eventually beat the previously undefeated New England Patriots.
  3. Henry Cejudo becomes the youngest freestyle wrestler to win an Olympic gold medal.
  4. Stephen Curry taking Davidson to an elite 8 and almost knocking off the eventual NCAA Champs, The Kansas Jayhawks.
  5. Michael Phelps winning 8 swimming gold medals in the 08 Summer Olympics.
  6. Mark Perry of the University of Iowa winning his second strait NCAA championship on a torn ACL, also guiding the Iowa Hawk-eyes to their first team championship since 2000.
  7. Michael Crabtree's game winning touchdown catch to beat Texas and knock the Horns out of the national championship game.
  8. Usain Bolt winning the 100m and 200m dashes, breaking the world records in both events.
  9. The whole Brett Favre saga. As much as I hate to admit it I was glued to the TV to find out where he was going to play or if he was going to play.
  10. The Dream (Redeem) Team winning gold in Beijing, making up for their disappointing 2004 Olympic turnout.

Great list
This has been one of the greatest years for sports with the olympics and everything else that has happened.
I would've listed the turnaround of the Celtics or the Rays, or the impressive talent and classiness of the heisman front runners this year over the return of of a qb who was about the 11th or 12th best in the nfl this year, but overall I agree with you.
