    Default What is your most painful/disappointing memory as a sports fan?

    Mine would have to be the Lakers losing the 1984 Finals to the Celtics after gagging at the end of games 2 and 4.

    2nd place would be USC blowing a 12 point lead in the final 6-1/2 minutes against Texas in the 2005 BCS Title Game.

    Can one of the moderators please correct it?

    Thank you!

    Fucking last night is Número Uno.

    Also, the Mariners letting their 116 win season in 2001 go in the shitter, similar to the Dubs last night.

    Oh, number two would actually have to be when UNLV lost to Duke in 1991 when they were trying to repeat as champs. Damn, I hate Duke as much as the Patriots. I don't think Tarkanian ever got over that defeat. There's a coach I would've loved to have played for.

    Peyton and the Broncos getting shellacked by the Seahawks was not much fun. I was probably the only person in Washington State rooting for the Sheriff that day.

    Wide right. And the Knicks losing to the rockets would be the most painful.

    USC losing in 2006 to a Texas team they were so far superior to and had the game in hand against. That game will never go away for me.

    Ralph Sampson's miracle tip-in to eliminate the Lakers in the WCF in '86 hurt a lot too.

    In 1993, the Phillies being a half inning away from forcing a Game 7 and............enter Joe Carter. It doesn't help that his home run is a favorite of any WS highlight reel so I keep having to watch it over and over and over.

    Tyson getting KO'd by Douglas was a major upset, in more ways than one...

    Easily the bullshit loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004 in Calgary. Flames Martin Gelinas, who scored every other series winning goal that year, seemed to score to give the Flames the lead at home in game 6 of the cup final. Goal was ruled inconclusive, Tampa won the series in 7. It's been 12 years and it still bothers me to remember it.

    They're my AL team.

    I'm mainly a Nationals fan now, as I live in the area and we finally got a team.
