Every sports fan has watched tape of some seminal, iconic moment and wished they could have been there. Certain images stand out of the millions of hours of sports footage. I have been blessed to see some fantastic events in person and far more on television, but there are dozens I would pay a fortune to have seen live. Here are my top 5:
5) “Shot on Ehlo”
Any number of Michael Jordan clips deserved this spot. But the combination of greatest player, classic contest, iconic shot, and turning point in a career puts this one over the top. Young Jordan, under heavy criticism from Chicago sports writers comes out and dominates the favored Cleveland Cavaliers sealing the series with this iconic jumper.
4) Rumble in the Jungle
3) Games 6 & 7 of the ’91 World Series
2) The miracle on ice
1) Jackie Robinson’s first game
