Greatest Moments in Sports History

The Top Ten

USA Hockey Defeats Soviets 1980

Like the mumble in the jungle, nobody thought this could be possible

The movie miracle is probably a crappy ass movie. They should make a movie about the '72 summit series or Sidney Crosby's golden goal in 2010. Tell me how many of you care about hockey again? Oh yeah that's right hockey is not a priority down there. For most people in the USA it is just a flip on the screen and on the very back of the sports section. The USA was not at a standstill like Canada was in '72 and 2010.

Well then how come Canada couldn't beat the Russians in the late 70's and early 80's? The Miracle on Ice is #1 around the world because you had a team of college students going up against veterans who won gold in every Olympics since 1960 and defeated every opposition, including the NHL. 1972's Summit Series moment is the best in Canada. But perhaps not internationally. - BUETBU91

Americans aren't known for being huge hockey fans generally, but every time there's a ranking of greatest sports moments in history, the miracle on ice is number one. That being said though, hockey experts almost unanimously agree that the greatest hockey moment ever was the 1972 Summit Series.

The best moment to ever happen in American Sports, if not International Sports, history!

Muhammad Ali def George Foreman

Muhammad Ali was past his prime. Everybody knew that, and he was already beaten by Joe Frasier. People thought his boxing career was over. But George Foreman. He was a beast. He was huge and could knock people out faster than Mike Tyson. He had whooped Joe Frasier and Ken Norton, two of the best boxers ever. But Ali had a plan. He knew if he stood his ground Foreman would get tired. And holy crap did he ever.

There's a clip of Foreman shooting out 4 punches a second, Ali on the ropes one foot away from him. Ali was dogging every punch. Near the end of the 8th round, Foreman was off balance. Ali took the chance and sprang off the ropes, punching Foreman on the head rapidly. Finally, with a hard punch to the jaw, Foreman was down, for the first time in his life. The Greatest Moment in Sports History.

It was something nobody expected,ali was very old and not that fast.
