All-Time Sports Moment
Either Adam Vinatieri's game-winning field goal in Super Bowl XXVI or Red Sox winning World Series in 2004. When Boston University makes the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament sometime during the next three years.
Most Memorable Game Attended
July 31, 1999. Roger Clemens makes his first start at Fenway Park as a member of the New York Yankees. Down early, Red Sox battle back and tie the game going into the bottom of the ninth. Facing Ramiro Mendoza, before he lost all ability to pitch, Jose Offerman leads off with a triple over Chad Curtis' head into the triangle in center. John Valentin then drives him home with a game-winning double to left. Remember it like it was yesterday. A close seond: Michael Vick, before the dog incident, coming to Chestnut Hill as a sophomore at Virginia Tech to play Boston College. It was the greatest individual performance I have ever witnessed. He made plays and ran through the BC defense on a remarkable 80-yard run that I still remember. You can watch on YouTube.
Most Unbreakable Sports Record
I would say Cy Young's 511 wins, but that was in a different era, when the game was played differently. For now, I'll say Wilt Chamberlain's 100 points in a game.
Ruth or Mays?
Babe Ruth. Mays was great offensivle and defensively, but Ruth is simply the best. Lifetime batting average of .342, 714 home runs, 2,217 runs batted in. I almost forgot, he was 94-46 as a pitcher with a 2.28 ERA. He won 20 or more games twice and once pitched an amazing 326 innings in one season!
Unitas or Montana?
Joe Montana. What Montana did in the palyoffs is simply amazing. Winner of five Super Bowls, and MVP three times.
ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 or SEC?
For college football, there is no greater conference than the SEC. From top to bottom, there are great programs, great coaches, and great players. No other conference is as top heavy as the SEC with Florida, LSU, Georgia, Tennessee, Auburn, Arkansas, and Alabama. Add in Kentucky, Mississippi, Mississippi St., Vanderbilt, and Steve Spurrier's South Carolina team and you have one heck of a conference. For college basketball, I'm going to go with the Pac 10. People may say the Big East, but it is because they have 16 teams. If you look beyond the top 8 teams, the bottom of that conference is absolutely horrible with St. John's, Seton Hall, Providence, Rutgers, South Florida, and DePaul. The Pac 10 has seen Arizona, Stanford, Oregon, Washington, Washington St., UCLA, USC, California, and to a lesser extent Arizona St., all have good seasons and make runs in the tournament. That's 9/10 teams as Oregon State has fallen far from the days of Gary Payton.
