Feb. 15, 1994 -- Trailing by 31 points with 15:34 remaining in the game at LSU, the Wildcats pull off a Mardi Gras miracle. Connecting on 11 three-pointers and outscoring the Bayou Bengals 62-27 during the final 15:34, UK storms back to a 99-95 victory - the greatest comeback in UK history.

Pitt: Of the 29 players in Cooperstown who played for the Pirates at one time or another, 20 of them went into the Hall as Bucs.

About 40 straight years of sellouts, plus a waiting list for tickets of around 50,000.

DC United - other than winning every trophy available to a North American side, I'd say the biggest accomplishment (for me) might have been this year: With the hated Metrostars needing one point in their last three games, and facing last place DC twice, we not only beat them in DC but went to NJ, more than a full year removed from our last road win, and beat them 1-0.

The San Diego Chargers winning a 41-38 OT thriller versus the Miami Dolphins in the 1981 AFC Divisional Playoffs, a game many consider to be the best ever played.

Twins: worst to first 1990-1991

Colorado: Kordell Stewart to Michael Westbrook and the hail mary that beat Michigan in '94 (the greatest college football play that I can honestly remember watching live)

Grant Hill to Laettner to beat Kentucky in the Ncaa quarters in '92.
(the greatest college basketball play I can honestly remember watching live)

Players working hard to entertain the crowds, even though it's been 13 years since they last won their division, 57 years since they won the pennant, and 94 years since they won the WS.
