On Tuesday afternoon, Americans will be treated to a speech that will set the tone for the next four years of our nation's leadership.
So what better time to reflect upon some of the great speeches that the world of sports has given us?
What is great about sports' speeches is that their contexts can vary so much. They take place at press conferences, in locker rooms, on the field, and some even take place in movies.
I've highlighted a select few that I think defined either the person or the era. Feel free to chime in if you can think of one that I missed.
