This year was a difficult time for many people because of the nation's financial crisis. But sports always have the power to bring joy and imagination for the people. The people didn’t stop witnessing some of sports' most breathtaking moments and accomplishments.
As we wind down towards the end of the year, it is time to reflect on 2008's greatest sports moments.
We saw David topple Goliath in Super Bowl XLII. We saw magic during March Madness. We saw Green, not Gold, holding the Larry O’Brien Trophy. We saw 08.08.08 as bringing the world together for three weeks. It marked the beginning of eight gold medals. We saw a Lightning Bolt strike gold three times. And gold was the sweet color of Redemption.
Now it’s time to find the Most Defining Moments of 2008. Every month had something buzzing in the air, and this slideshow reflects the best moments for each month. Goodbye 2008, hello 2009!
