Great moments in Sports.

What are some of your favorite sports memories ? They can be personal experiences or some memorable events in any spectator sports - Archery to Zebra polo- the sky's the limit. Fly-fishing, Frisbee trick shots...whatever .

I'll start with a personal memory. My dad took me to see Game 3 of the 1971 World Series when I was 10 years old at Three Rivers in Pittsburgh. I was a big Pirates fan - Roberto Clemente and Willy Stargell posters on my wall...and so anyway, to make a long story short, Pirates beat the Orioles 5-1 ( and went on to win the Series). So I got to see 2 of my heroes the same day - Clemente and Brooks Robinson for Baltimore.

I love watching old clips like these too.

My dad took me to Dodger Stadium to see the Angels play after they moved there from the old Wrigley Field, in 1962. He also took me to the Coliseum to see USC-Notre Dame in I think 1964 in a driving rainstorm. We spent most of the first half under the stands lol. We left at the half. It was miserable.

I was at Dodger Stadium for one of Don Drysdale's shutouts during his 58 2/3 inning scoreless streak in 1968. It was June 4, 1968, and Roberto Clemente was in RF for the Pirates.

I was there, in the LF stands, the day they discontinued selling beer in the outfield seats after we pelted Pete Rose with all kinds of refreshments after he flipped us off behind his back cuz we were yelling at him.

Too many Raiders' games at the Coliseum while they were in LA to count.

That time Robin Ventura charged the mound on Nolan Ryan and got his ass beat like a rented mule.

Last night's women's shootout win to capture the gold medal in hockey against the Canadians. It wasn't over until 2:20 AM, I couldn't sleep for an hour or so after it was over. Already a classic.

Congrats to team USA!!!!

Only in America where the people who don't pay taxes demand the people who pay taxes to pay more to subsidize the lives of the non-payers.
