I'm sure this call sparked this piece.

A lot of those were simply great plays. The calls themself Laettner, Marv Albert on Jordan, and The Catch especially) were nothing special. I think the Music City Miracle, despite being an obvious forwarfd pass, should have been higher. The Jason Lezak comeback in the relay is probably the most memorable call in my opinion

You're alright.

Anyway, I went back to check out the list, but first I had to scroll down to make sure they had the right call at number one. If I could place myself at any point in history, it would probably be the Miracle on Ice. Which probably means I wouldn't actually hear the call. But, you know, shut up.

I had a date with my later to be wife on that Friday and I called her to say I was going to watch the US vs USSR game. Her response was, "are you ******** me".
She still uses that phrase a lot with me.

By far my favorite Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery call. Best line is Ratery saying, "And when you're sleepless in Seattle why not get...A LITTLE KISS!" to describe the kiss off the rim.

Phenomenal..... LUV Raftery, always have.
He called Morrison extraordinary..... I'm still surprised Morrison fizzled out so badly in the NBA.... like Wally Zerbiak did.

Even though I don't like baseball, Dave Neihaus' in game 5 of the 1995 ALDS when Griffey scored from 1st has always been a favorite of mine.

And there were almost 17 million Canadians on average that watched the whole thing.


Winning the Olympic Gold is to Canadians..... what beating the Yankees in the ALCS is to the Red Sox fans, what beating the Cowboys in the NFC CG is to Redskins' fans, what beating the Celtics for an NBA title is to Lakers' fans, and what beating Michigan means to Buckeye fans...... ALL COMBINED. In 2002 in Salt Lake, it was the first time we'd won in 50 years, almost to the day, and people wept. Then.... to do it on home soil 8 years later..... that's special. Especially since it was expected. Not a medal. THE medal. Not the other colors, just the gold one.


And I'm pretty sure the 20% that weren't watching that game, were serving beer to the 80% that did.


And in 2014, it's going to mean almost as much to Canada..... to win gold on Russian soil. Just to prove a point. To the Russians. Again.
