Putting the year of 2008 into words is quite the task. From eight gold medals, to one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history, to game-winning shots, 2008 had it all for the sports fan.
The year of 2008 showed great sportsmanship and also players getting into off the field problems. In the NBA, NHL and even college football, head coaches are getting fired left and right.
2008 was also home to both the Olympics in Beijing and the Euro Tournament (soccer for those of you who don't know what it is. If you don't, you missed out on a great tourney).
With so much that has happened this year, what more could a sports fan ask for?
Author's Note: These moments are in no order. The pictures are also some of the ones that you might not have seen yet. I wasn't happy just picking photos that are the most popular, or that everyone has already saw or are in other slide shows.
Also, coming with each picture is a brief write-up of the story to help you remember the great moment.
Enjoy the ride through 2008!
