2008 was a year to be remembered. We saw the Giants upset the Patriots in perhaps the biggest upset in NFL history, Tiger Woods win the US Open on one leg and many other sensational stories.
Michael Phelps's amazing feat of eight gold medals in one Olympic game was the event in the sporting world that captured us the most. He entertained us for a few short weeks in August but it seemed like much longer.
Phelp's feat will stand for at least another four years for the simple fact that there won't be another Olympic games until then.
Of all of the championships and accomplishments of the year, Phelps's was the most difficult because he had to do it over a short period of time. He even beat others at their best.
