Have you ever said the perfect thing at the perfect moment?
If you can't answer that question immediately, the word you're looking for is "No." I say this because dropping the right line at the ideal moment is tantamount to nirvana in terms of the earth-shattering joy it brings.
You never forget those moments—the ones where you whipped out a miracle quip and royally embarrassed a bully or jackass coworker. These lines are called "mic drops," because after they're delivered, there's nothing else to say.
The following are a selection of some of the best literal (and figurative) mic drops to ever occur in the world of sports. They're not always the kindest words, but at the time, they were absolutely and positively necessary.
These are athletes and coaches who said their piece, dropped the mic and walked away.
