Greatest Moments in Sports History
The Top Ten
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.
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.
Best sporting moment ever for sure, especially because it was going on during the Cold War.
The best moment to ever happen in American Sports, if not International Sports, history!
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.

How isn't this higher? Proves that just a bunch of americans are on here
Before the World Cup Mussolini told the Italian soccer team this: "WIN OR DIE." Uruguay and Italy were up against each other in the finals and Italy won 4-2. 11 lives were saved just from a soccer game.
If a team got a death threat from one of the worst people ever and yet they found out a way to win this is truly the greatest moment in sports history.
After 36 years, Australia solidified their gold medal after setting a world record in the men's 4x100m freestyle relay during the Sydney Summer Olympics in 2000. Ian Thorpe had been trailing USA's Gary Hall, coming into the final 50 metres, but recovered and won against USA, while setting a new world record of 3:13.67.
It was incredible because it was two incredible players retiring in the same match

I'm not a fan of the Patriots, but I think this is the best team the NFL has ever seen. right now there going to the superbowl at 18-0. but I think they can beat New York.
After eight years of Queensland domination, the New South Wales finally broke the drought after winning the State of Origin series 2-1 in 2014. The first two games were dominated by New South Wales, having won the games at 12-8, and 6-4 respectively. Queensland later won the final game at home, 32-8, but the shield had already been transported south to New South Wales.
