    Re: Favorite sports moments

    Without new games they keep showing classic games, and I'm watching them. This time game 6 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals. I only remembered it as the one where Mark Messier scored a hat-trick after media made a big deal of him saying that they would win the game (what captain does not make such a claim before an elimination game?!?!?!). Turns out there was more to that game. The Devils were up 2-0 until a minute left of the second period, and they would have scored five more if not for Mike Richter standing on his head. For two periods it was just him and Brian Leetch vs the Devils. So their disappointment at losing the game was massive. It was Martin Brodeur's rookie season and Scott Niedermayer was relatively new as well.

    My favorite moment of the game was the incredible lack of professionalism from Broadway Bernie Nicholls. He was supposedly cranky about the Rangers trading him to Edmonton for Mark Messier a season after they had acquired him from Los Angeles. He was playing dirty most of the game, but the highlight was with twenty seconds left of the game with the Devils down two goals. There was a delayed penalty on the Devils and the puck was sitting in front of Nicholls but instead of just touching it to get the ref to blow the whistle, Nicholls waited for the Rangers' Glenn Anderson to get closer and then fired a slapshot right at Anderson. Good times.

    I didn't remember all those details, but I watched the **** out of those playoffs. I was in summer school at college because I wanted to take a WWII course that the guy didn't do any other time, I only had to go to class MW 6-8, had no job, it was hot as hell, we watched hockey, drank pink lemonade, reversed our days and nights that summer, and I've never had it that easy again ever.

    I'm pretty sure 1994 was the peak of all existence. Kurt Cobain had the right idea, but he got a little trigger happy and missed the Stanley Cup, Soccer World Cup, and Pulp Fiction.

    Expos would have won the WS and Gwynn would have hit .400. What a great year

    Baker ending the Browns losing streak.

    Rajai Davis with the homer un in game 7 2016.

    Cavs Championship - The whole series was great, but the final 2 minutes of game 7 were GOAT.

    Any baseball game I got to go to with my grandfather.

    Taking a cue from Azzy - Little League Championship game. Bottom of the 7th (we didn't play 9 inning games at that age for time), man on first, I'm up with 2 outs and the game tied. My stat-line up until then was 0-0 with a walk and 3 HBP. Game winning double straight up the middle.

    Also in Little League - Was asked to pitch for the first time in ever in relief with a man on first and second and no out. Struck out the first guy I face on 4 pitches, second batter lined the first pitch he saw from me right back to me, but low. Snagged it and threw it to first for the double play to end the inning. Never pitched again after that.

    I'm sure I'll have more as I actually think about this now that I've actually looked at the thread.
