25 years of life means 25 years worth of sports memories…well more like 19 to 20 (memory before 4 is a little fuzzy). So much has happened in sports that I couldn’t let my birthday go by without sharing the 25 greatest sports moments I have ever seen live. For this countdown which is in no particular order at all I can say that I was there or saw it live on TV. Living them in the moment is what this list is all about, here are moments one through five.
The Allen Iverson shot over Tyronn Lue in Game 1 of the Finals (2001)
Zidane & the headbutt seen round the world (2006 World Cup)
Jadaveon Clowney makes a statement (2013 Outback Bowl)
Robert Horry Game winner against the Kings (2002 Western Conference Finals)
Willis McGahee has his knee liquified (2003 Fiesta Bowl)
And I’m just getting started, more great moments are on the way!
The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia ended last night, and I barely noticed. Here’s what preoccupied me over the last 2 weeks:
Two completely different men in sports have had memorable meltdowns in the last couple weeks, but who did it better? Syracuse Head Coach Jim Boeheim or Chicago Bulls Forward Joakim Noah?

And this is what they want it to look like on Opening Day 2017:
In keeping with my wall-to-wall breaking coverage of last night’s dunk contest, here’s the meme of the day. You can never find the creator of these things, so shoutout to my boy Marcus Sussman for showing me!
The all-star experience that the NBA puts together every year is pretty remarkable when you take a look at it compared to the other major leagues around. With the NFL no one cares about the Pro Bowl and the MLB All-star game never gets the ratings it should for what they call the national pastime.
Uriah Faber has always been one of my favorite MMA fighters going back to his early days in the WEC. What is the WEC you ask? World Extreme Cagefighting, it was bought by the UFC back in 2006 and ended all-together in 2010. He’s had a very productive career so far, especially in a sport that is known for its heavyweights and international stars.But after his first-found TKO loss to Renan Barao at UFC 169 (his second loss to Barao), what lies ahead for the 34-year old?
Jameis Winston has a long spring semester ahead of him. The Heisman Trophy winner doesn’t just have to deal with classes and the inherent fame that comes with being a national championship winner, he also has to get ready for the Florida State baseball season.
Yes, that’s right. Baseball. If you haven’t seen his moment of YouTube fame yet check this out:
A long semester for him means more fun times in Tallahassee.
