Thought this might be a fun one since many of you have lived across different times and geographies (in @cynicaloldgit’s case the roaring twenties).
What are the greatest athletic achievements you have witnessed while in the stands (let’s try and keep away from those that are emotional attachments and focus instead on actual feats):
In my case:
Red Sox Jon Lester no-hitter vs Royals at Fenway, 2008
A’s Eric Byrne hits for cycle vs Giants, 2003
Michael Jordan 36 vs Knicks, 1997
Tiger Woods winning the US Open at Pebble, 2000
Andrew Luck and Shayne Skov vs Va Tech, Orange Bowl 2011 (at that precise moment, this was the greatest college football team ever despite what @Arminius thinks)
Nick Robinson buzzer beater to lead Stanford over Arizona basketball, 2004
Graf winning the US Open in a thrilling three sets over Seles, 1995
Jeanette Pohlen’s 31 to end UConn’s 90 game hoops winning streak in 2010
Shaqiri scoring twice to have Mourinho sacked, 2018 (okay this one is an emotional one maybe, maybe not, but since I have not been fortunate enough to watch my Reds like some of you, I’m counting it. Plus it’s my thread).
Can’t wait to hear your tales.
