Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

I would have to say Tiger also. As someone said, he is so far above the field. Same with Jordan.

I guess what I was really looking for was stuff that, when you tell your teenage/young adult kids, they say "Wow! was it really as good as everybody says". The stuff the enters the cultural mythos as opposed to just the "Skins Fan" mythos. But, hey, it's all good.

Randall Cunningham was on the enemy Eagles, but I loved watching him play.



I remember seeing Randall Cunningham's 90-yard punt live too.

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Aside from the heyday of the Skins, I grew up in the Era of QBs that had all kinds of passing records when the league was run-first (Montana, Elway, Marino, Moon). I also had guys like Gretsky, Jordan, Bo Jackson, Tiger Woods, who each changed the way we look at their respective sport(s).

Then there is Iron Cal, who will always been known for his solid work ethic as 2632 will never be broken, but also revolutionized a position that was mainly taken up by weak hitting guys under 6 foot tall (Cal had 400 HRs and 3000 Hits in his career, 1 of 8 players to do so to go with 2 Gold Gloves).

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Being only 23 and only having actually followed sports the past 7 years or so, I don't think I've really had a bunch of sports moment memories yet. The Redskins haven't won a superbowl since the 90's and I wasn't old enough to care then. The Orioles suck as do the Wizards again. So current DC sports lore is out of the question. I mean it was kinda cool that Jordan played for the Wizards for those handful of months but it wasn't like he was the Jordan of old, in his prime. So what's the point?

Hopefully the area teams get better within the next 10 years so I actually do have amazing stories to tell them when I have em.

Word. Well there are a couple other ones I think that get a bit overlooked. If my son/daughter liked boxing I would have to tell him/her about how dominant Mike Tyson was in his prime and the same for NASCAR and Jimmie Johnson right now.

And of course I'd have to tell them about Ovechkin and Ovie v. Crosby

Now that is one that stands out to me. The ear biting incident. Holyfield v. Tyson. I think that will forever go down as one of the strangest matches in boxing history.

I was lucky enough to be at game 2 vs the Pens last year and that is an experience I'll be talking about for a long time.

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

im probably 10 years old. caps down to the flyers 3-1 in the playoff series. caps come back to force a game 7. flyers go up big, something like 5-2. the caps fight back, score 2 goals in the closing minutes with dale hunter getting a scrum goal to force OT with seconds left in a pile of players in ron hextalls crease.

OT, larry murphy slips a pass to a breakin dale hunter in open ice. he skates in alone, gives hextall alil shoulder dip then goes to the back hand and slides the puck underneath hextall. crowd goes absolutely bonkers! hextall lays motionless on his back with half his body in the net.

best moment ever besides my 3 goals against duquesne to seal a rare win for my college lacrosse team.

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Yeah its weird how things change, Iron Mike went from the best heavyweight we have seen in decades to a guy who bites off ears and tattoo's his face.
Michael jackson went from the king of pop to a ..... well i wont say it. but he was the man until it all went downhill for him.
OJ, uuhh nevermind.
I thought this was interesting.The role of the Terminator was originally going to be portrayed by O. J. Simpson. But, according to (James) Cameron in 1984, "people wouldn't have believed a nice guy like O. J. playing the part of a ruthless killer." Again its crazy how things change.

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

What will I tell my son. I'll tell him about everything that I can remember as long as he is interested. He will know about everything Redskins. The good and the bad as well as the consequences of going against the Redskins gene in his DNA. I don't know everything to list, but whatever comes to mind. I'll eb the old guy who when he brings up some great QB I'll tell him about Marino, Montana, Elway, Cunningham, whoever. I just can't wait to have these talks with him.

Celtics absolute DESTRUCTION of the Lakers to win the Championship in '07-'08. Outside of the Skins SB wins I can't remember a more enjoyable win.

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Since I'm a young gun there haven't been as many moments for me as some of the elders here but I can think of a few off the top of my head I'd tell my kid about when the time is right.

Manning/Brady aka Colts/Pats rivalry
Monday Night Miracle, with Sean Taylor's game clinching hit at the end still in vivid detail.
Tiger Woods, even though I'm still not much of a golf fan.
Alexander Ovechkin, even though where he stands amongst the legends of hockey still hasn't been noted mainly due to not enough seasons (aka i'll be telling my son, "back in my day before Ovie was finishing up his career, he scored goals like it was nothing. Check this youtube clip of the most amazing goal I've ever seen, it was against Phoenix way back in the day when his legend was just getting established. )

That's the ones for now.
