I have seen tons of great sporting events live as shared in an earlier blog post. When reviewing my old blog posts and reading the one about "overall" events it got me thinking about what "moment" was the best. I racked my brain over and over and went through all the shots, goals, bodyslams (Steve Austin jumping from a zamboni onto Vince at RAW sounds cheesy but it was insane at the Joe) and touchdowns witnessed from the stands. The one moment that sticks out above all the rest is when Magglio hit the home run to send the Tigers to the World Series. It was a cold night and the Labatt Blue was flowing! When he hit that ball all your heard was the screams and shouts from 40,000+ people. Bodies flying everywhere; hugging and high fiving like the whole stadium was long lost best friends. It was almost surreal how electric that place was when you realized the team that had the worst record in history the year before was now going to the World Series. I forgot how long the cheering and screaming lasted. It seemed like forever as it carried out into the streets. No one was acting crazy like in 1984 as everyone was just enjoying the moment. Could not have been more of a perfect sports moment.
Looking forward to hearing some amazing moments from everyone else.
