Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

I mean besides being at the Skins' next SB Game.

I was watching Monday Night Football and just enjoying the whole Brady/Manning competition when it occurred to me that these two players have created a real legacy that 20-30 years from now will be part of sports mythology and I am getting the opportunity to watch it as it happens.

I am sure there will come a day when I tell my kid "Yeah, they're good but you should've seen Brady/Manning - now that was a rivalrly."

I am just wondering what sports mythos others have witnessed or what part of the current sports you watch will become part of sports mythology?

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

seems like we have had our share. Jordan, Bird and Magic. Tiger Woods. Joe Montana, Walter Payton, Jerry Rice. the steroid in baseball scandal. McGwire vs. Sosa. Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Ray Bourque

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Not to knock Manning and brady but with today's rules i dont hold them in as high of a regard as i do Marino,Montana,Moon and Elway.These guys had to fit their passes into small windows as their wrs were being all but undressed in the secondaries. Back then as a wr going across the middle you knew you were gonna get drilled,this 5 yd BS away from the play makes me sick. 3rd and 17 and you get a 1st because the defender touched the wr on the opposite side of the field of where the QB was looking. AAHHH!! sorry for the rant.

I have a kid and she hates sports, so nothing I guess. But she's well aware of me being a Skins fan.

My son asked me last night why I had a baby picture of him in Redskin gear. Oh how badly I have failed

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Nice thread. Lots of good moments to choose from. I'd probably tell my kids about some Tiger moments, the 2008 Nadal vs. Federer Wimbledon Final...wait are we talking moments or rivalries?

its ok, it happens. My son likes the LSU Tigers and i am a die hard Gator fan. But my Daughter who is 6 came up to me and asked if she could have a Gator cake for her bday party. I almost dripped a few.

Tiger. Plain and simple he is the one that someday we'll be saying..."Man you wouldn't believe how good this guy was." It goes basically Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods. Everyone else is just garnish.

Moss at Dallas in front of the new Ring inducties was classic.

Re: Sports Moments You Will Tell Your Kids

Yep, the Moss miracle game and also the Sean Taylor recovery/Nick Novak game winner against Dallas. I have never jumped so high before in my life!

Also, SB XXII was the first SB I watched. That one is one of the best SB performance of all time, let alone in Skins history.

The '91 season where we were 11-0 and dominating everyone.


In basketball, MJ's game-winner vs. Utah. MJ's game with the flu was incredible. Pippen had to help him walk off the court afterwards. Jordan provided so many thrilling moments. His 3 vs. Portland in the finals. Also, the games where Paxson and Kerr hit game-winners in the Finals. I saw so many of his crushing Cleveland shots too, and the games vs. the Knicks where there was so much hatred and hard play.

This season's WS was great to watch, even as a non-Yankees fan. To open another Yankee Stadium with a dominating WS win is going to be historic.

Also in baseball, watching Mike Schmidt smack home runs back when baseball was still pure and untainted. Nolan Ryan's no-hitters.



So many sports memories so far in my lifetime.
