Sports are great. Millions upon millions of people every year across not only the United States, but the entire world, involve themselves with sports one way or another. Whether it be coaching a team, playing for a team or whatever the case may be, it's safe to say that without sports, the world we live in today would be much, much different from the world we currently know.
There are dozens of different sports in the world, ranging from baseball to skiing, football to cricket, basketball to croquet. There are also dozens of different reasons that people involve themselves with sports, no matter the level. One of the most common reasons as to why people love sports is because of the way that sports can lift us and the way that they can make us feel on top of the world and invincible, albeit sometimes only for a moment.
Ever since sports were first played, there have been millions of special and iconic moments. To narrow down the five greatest moments in sports history is no easy task, however the five moments I chose are on this list for a few different reasons.
To be considered one of the greatest moments in sports history, the moment has to be special. It has to be a moment where people remembered where they were when it happened or when they heard the news; it had to have uplifted a large group of people; and it must be an iconic moment in time that will stand on its own forever.
In the following slides, I'll unveil to you what I believe the five greatest moments in the history of sports are. Feel free to comment and let me know what moments you think I missed, what moments I nailed on the head and anything else.
