Tyreeli or whatever it is called. All I could remember is being in my dad's study b/c I couldn't watch it with other people and I heard my mother and sister reaction to the play's whole development in the next room. So whenever I see the replay of it, I always hear how my mother and sister reacted.

David Wright off of Mariano to win in epic comeback fashion in the Subway Series. I was there and I think a jumped over two rows of seats in celebration.

Jay Alford's sack against Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.

Amani Toomer's catch and run against Dallas in the 2007 playoffs.

Mike Piazza post-9/11 Home Run.

Marlon Anderson's inside the park Home Run.

Endy's catch.

Out of pure schadenfreude:
Ronde Barber's INT of McNabb in the NFC championship game and pretty sure last football game at The Vet.

Ivan Rodriguez's body of work in the 2003 MLB playoffs. Was he roided up beyond belief? Yes but, his overall performance in calling games, hitting, and catching were on a different level than any other player that post-season. Schadenfreude because I was sick of the Cubs/Yankees/Red Sox being the decided choices for the World Series when that Marlins team was way more compelling and in hindsight, way more talented than credited.

Favre's last play parts I-IV.

Out of pure misery:
Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright's curve ball.

DeSean Jackson.

Tre Junkin's snap.

Other's that I had no connection with the teams:
Memphis' breakdown against Kansas.

Tracy Porter's Pick 6 in the Super Bowl.

Kane's silent goal to win the Stanley Cup.

Hakeem Warrick's block against Kansas.

Blake Griffin's dunk on Mozgov (sorry, Knicks fans, that was sick).

Dwight Clark going over Everson Walls in the 1982 NFC Championship game.

That Phi Slamma Jamma jumper/alley oop.

George Brett's pine tar escapade.

The Miracle on Ice.

Being a 'Cuse alum, the Hakim Warrick block always.

I'm not a NY Giants fan, but I'll never forget the Tyree catch.

I also have a feeling the Desean Jackson punt return will remain burned in my memory for a long time.


I didn't know you were a 'cuse alum too!

Here are a few...

Not a play, but Namath wagging the #1 finger as he headed into the Orange Bowl tunnel after Super Bowl III

Jay Alford's sack against Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.

Good call. Almost more memorable than the Tyree catch... I guess they were both memorable in their own way and perfectly symbolic for the game itself (alford, the rookie i think who never sacked anyone or had one sack, just going right up the middle and taking down one of the best qbs in the nfl...). Anyway, Alford's sack was a perfect way to pretty much end that game.

Yeah, that was a sweet play. Kind of feel bad for Alford. I thought he was going to be a good player in their DT rotation, but he tore his ACL and MCL before the 09 season. The Giants cut him this past season.
