Captain Morgan

as a sports fan, have you ever experienced a moment like the Minneapolis Miracle?

big reason why I started this thread

I will admit that it was before my fandom. I was 10 years old and didn't even care about sports (I was a super nerd). But my Dad kept getting more and more excited about his favorite football team. X Clown was a two games before I started caring :( Dad got more hyped than I'd ever seen him for the Super Bowl so thats the moment I was like "sure I'll start following this team." I still remember missing Janet Jackson's nip slip cus I went to the bathroom at the restaurant. Lol. 

I haven't actually gotten to experience alot of major sports moments live. The greatest games I've watched start with the 2008 Chargers and MNF home game against the Bucs. Also the OT loss to the Giants in the old Meadowlands. I literally don't remember another good game that season but those two were epic. 2009 and 10 could be forgotten, but I remember watching Cam in the 2010 SEC Championship both loving that he was probably going to be the Panthers' QB and hating that he swept my beloved Gamecocks in impressive fashion that year. The next year was my first and only sports-fan Championship experience. Tony Stewart won the Sprint Cup and I was on top of the world. I never did get a fire jacket to commemorate and I regret it. 2012 could be forgotten but 2013 stuff starts again. There were so many good games that season for the Panthers. Week 3 against the Giants, the defensive slug fest in San Fran, the MNF game against the Pats, home monsoon game against the Saints, winning the division in Atlanta. 2014 was largely forgettable but winning the division in Atlanta by laying the smack down on them was quite enjoyable. 

Then2015 happened. So many great games. So much hype. Obviously the first Seattle game was one of the greatest sports moments I've ever observed live. I was over at a love-interest's grandma's house and literally scared everyone in the room when I jumped up and screamed as Greg caught that TD. Shutting out Atlanta was amazing. Oh and hearing all the hate as we kept racking up wins. The "undefeated" chants leaving games in Charlotte. I got to help hold the 100 yard flag in the home Houston game, and shake Clowney's hand (big deal to a Gamecock fan).  Froze my ass off in the OT Colts thriller and loved every minute. Savored the win against Green Bay knowing we were the best in the NFC.  Tennessee Mom, the Dab, blowing out the Redskins, blowing out the Cowboys in their place on Thanksgiving, the Return of the Cardiac Cats against the Saints and Giants toward the end of the season, and going up 31-nothing on the Seahawks at home in the playoffs. Even the discovery of the Panthers Spanish Radio team. All amazing moments. We made the Super Bowl too and we we know what happened but the crowning moment of 2015 for me was the NFCCG. If you've never been there in the stadium to watch your favorite team in your favorite sport earn a berth in that sport's biggest game, you just don't truly understand what it feels like. Especially the way the Panthers won. Because we were blowing them out, it was a literal dance party halfway through the 3rd quarter. "Su-per Bowl" chants echoed around the stadium by the end of the 3rd. "M-V-P" chants rained down as Cam scored his last TD of the night with a vintage Superman run. I've never heard a louder "LUUUUKE" than after he picked sixed Palmer in the 4th quarter. Then as the game clock reached 0:05 the entire stadium spontaneously and in unison counted down the last 5 seconds. And I cried like a baby and it still makes me tear up to this day. No one wanted to leave even though it was freezing. We all stayed to watch the confetti and the NFC Championship trophy be presented. I've said it before and I'll say it again, only a Panthers' Super Bowl win is going to top that moment for me in the realm of sports experiences. 

I watched Luke May's last second shot live and was able to catch the Minnesota Miracle live. Even the last second heart-stopper against Tampa Bay is up there on my list of great sports memories. Alot of the other stuff people have mentioned, I just didn't get to see live.

Actually think the Minny Miracle is kind of...minny. Enjoyed Beast Mode tossing the Taint DB aside more.

 

 

Something I saw in person:

 

So many more.

Another event I wish I'd been old enough to appreciate wasn't sports related.  It was Apollo 13 (I was 3).

Damn, young'un, I remember watching Apollo 11 on the black-and-white TV.   I was 6.

It was so good, but the 91 World Series might have been  better.

Everybody remembers the first Panthers-Bucs game that season, but we rarely talk about the second.  That game was great too.

This was the game where Simeon Rice guaranteed victory.

At 3:45, you'll hear Warren Sapp saying their four point lead would be "enough to ice they ass".  A little over a minute later, you get to see Sapp looking at the ground in shame and defeat.

If we had that receiving corp right now, the league would step in to break the team up. It just wouldn't be fair.

X Clown.

It was my sophomore year at ECU. I remember jumping up with both hands raised as it happened and cutting my knuckles on the popcorn ceiling of our apartment. I ran outside and started yelling because what else could you do. A couple other dudes had the same idea. Panthers fans just yelling in the middle of the street in Greenville.

The App State/Michigan game will always be the craziest/miracle game I’ve ever watched. I can’t even begin to describe the emotions or feeling being in Boone when that happened.

I forgot the Chargers-Dolphins game where they had to carry Kellen Winslow off the field afterward.

Man, that game was something to see.
