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

Brother I am planning on coming to a game in the fall.  Sometime in September.   Still overseas so hooking up with someone for a tailgate is the best for me.   I would love to stop by.  

Marc was a great guy and it is cool to meet one of his friends.  

I met Marc at a MS event and he invited to the tailgate the next year for a Raiders game. Great guy, and a great host.

of course just let me know. I was hoping for a UK game next fall but it looks like we are waiting another year at least...

Me too.   I wonder if JR had anything to do with this.  It seems so odd that Carolina has never been there yet every other team from our division has been there at least once.

He was the epitomy of a true Panther fan.

Off the beaten path here but I'd put game-winning QB draw vs. the Packers in 1999 in the 'miracle', or at least 'highly improbable', category.

Not off beaten at all.  I don't think there was one fan in that stadium Packer or Panther Fan that though the QB sneak was going to happen.   

What a great call in a great game.

When I was in high school, I worked at the original Charlotte Coliseum at a concession stand selling popcorn, nachos, etc.  While the game was on and there were no clients, I could step just a few feet out of the stand and have a great view of the game.  This was also back when every game was literally a sell out.  This is definitely one of my favorite moments...the feeling in that coliseum that day was electric...then this happened:

true story, I was there for this. And so was Marc, but I hadn't met him yet

For reasons I won't get into here this game altered my outlook on life which I really needed at the time.

For me, even before I was a panthers fan, I was a Louisiana Ragin Cajun fan.  We hadn't made a bowl game since 1970 and I had never seen us go to a bowl game even though we had players like Jake Delhomme, Brian Mitchell, Peanut Tillman, and Ike Taylor.  It never seemed like we were ever even gonna make a bowl game we had barely missed one 4 times between 2005 and 2010.  With our new coach in 2011, we had an 8-4 record and made the new orleans bowl, which we put 40,000 fans in the stands there for.  Still Ryan Lindley threw a TD pass with 30 seconds left to go up by 1 point.  We got the ball back with no time outs and 30 seconds to work with, and got to a spot for a 55 yard field goal (followed by a 5 yard stemming penalty), still a 50 yarder for a college kid is nothin to sneeze at.  Of Course Brett Baer made it, and that to me was my favorite moment as a sports fan because I had waited so long for us to even be in the game for such a miraculous game winner.  I legit teared up at that game.  FWIW, that cajuns team had Melvin White, Dwight bentley, and Ladarius Green on it, so there was some solid talent there too.  Anyway, here's the game winner that still gives me goosebumps.

I watched almost the whole game on TV at home up until MN got their last FG. Then I drove to my GF's house and sat in my car and listened on SIRIUS to NO get their go-ahead FG. Turned it off and went inside. Checked phone for some reason about 15 minutes later, saw the final score,  and did the biggest facepalm I've ever done in my life. I missed that poo.

Ouch.

Chad Cota's interception against the Steelers in 1996 to seal our first playoff birth was pretty epic, too, for what it was.

I watched that game with a friend who's a Steelers fan.

Week 1 of the 2008 season against the Chargers,  Jake Delhomme threw the game winning touchdown to Dante Rosario with literally 0:00 on the clock.

Being a Knicks fan the game winner by Allan Houston in game 5 of the playoffs against the Miami Heat, our biggest rival at the time, was a great one for me too.

I was at the Oregon-Oklahoma game in 2006 when Oregon won on a controversial onside kick. Oregon was down 13 when the Ducks scored a TD making it 33-27 with 1:53 left. On the following on-sidekick Oklahoma appeared to have recovered and won the game but the refs ruled it Oregon football for some reason. Oregon scored with 21 seconds left to take a 34-33 lead. OU nearly returned the following kickoff for a TD but ended up missing a 44 yard FG as time ran out. Adrian Petersen and Stewart both had monster games.
