The Top 25 Sports Stories of the Decade (2000-2009)

After Usain Bolt cracked the 100 meter world record by more than a tenth of a second on Sunday, I thought to myself, “this is the greatest sports story of the last decade.”

I was totally and completely floored.

People weren’t supposed to run this fast. More importantly, people weren’t supposed to run this much faster than everyone else. Track & Field fans are witnessing one of the most amazing talents of our generation.

I called a couple of friends to let them know what happened and of course I made my argument that this was the be-all-end-all of sports stories. Every one of them disagreed and began spouting off other unforgettable storylines that easily blew mine out of the water.

So I sat down and made a list. Five days later, my list is complete. It started as a top 10 list and slowly developed into a massive top 25 I’m a little bit embarrassed to have written.

The length is a little bit absurd and I’m certain there is literally not a single person in the known universe who is going to agree with my picks completely, but it’s the best I could do.

Thanks for reading and if you have any comments or criticisms, let the debate begin.
