10 Moments: Why I am a Sports Fan

Now that we've reached the time of year when there really aren't any big sports games to talk about (don't lie to me, baseball fans; even you know that there aren't any *really* big games until August or September), people seem to be in the mood for predictions about what is to come.

I've decided to buck that trend: to look back. To pause and remember WHY I love sports.

So I give you something special to me personally: my top 10 moments as a sports fan, through the eyes of a college kid from Baltimore.

Unsurprisingly, the list is football heavy; other than the Ravens, we have lacked good sports for most of my time as a sports fan.

Which, of course, doesn't detract from the epicness (it's a word now, even if it wasn't prior to this article) of these moments.

Side note: I was born in 1988; the first major sporting events I can remember came when I was about 8-10 years old, so anything before 1996 is automatically ineligible: I don't remember it.
