As somebody else mentioned, I loved it when Blackpool advanced to the Premier League. I thought they thoroughly deserved it and because I go to Blackpool regularly to see relatives, I support them and have been to a couple of games at Bloomfield Road.
As a player, probably in Ten-Pin Bowling. I play in 3 different leagues and I was at a tournament and aimed to finish in the top 3 in my division. As I started the last game out of 8 I had already played, I knew I needed 223 to finish 3rd, 233 to finish 2nd and 256 to come 1st. I f*cked up with splits on my first 2 frames and managed to strike out, getting 10 in a row. Finished with a 258 and beat 1st by 2 pins. It was f*cking amazing as I doubted myself right from the word 'Go' of that last game and managed to pull it off.
The broncos beating the Steelers in OT on an 80 yard pass from Tim Tebow to Damaryius Thomas in the first round of the playoffs. Sure, they got crushes next week. But watching my favorite team beat my least favorite team, then rubbing it in to all the people at my school (I live in Pennsylvania). It was great, until te next week.
As most of this thread is Soccer/Football related, I'd thought I'd throw in something different. My favorite sports moment was the 2001 NASCAR Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway. Just 5 months prior, Dale Earnhardt, one of the world's greatest drivers and 7 time NASCAR champion, was killed on the final lap of the Daytona 500, protecting his team cars consisting of Michael Waltrip, and his son, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Waltrip won the race. When NASCAR returned to Daytona for the 4th of July weekend, everybody was haunted by the memories of Dale's death. However, in the closing laps, Junior rocketed from 6th to 1st in 2 laps, much like his father went from 18th to 1st in 4 laps to capture his final win just one year prior. This time, Michael Waltrip was the one pushing, and he helped Dale Jr. win the race at the track his father was killed at. The celebration in the infield was one of the greatest and most emotional images in all of sports history. If you weren't a fan, you were amazed at what just happened, and if you were a fan, most were brought to tears by surreality of the event. Absolutely incredible.
Brought up a Cardiff and Spurs fan, and I was just in awe of Gareth Bale in both legs vs. Inter.
As a player I won the double with the local Under 16s team. Further back than that I played for another local team and we were the worst in the league. But we made a stand against the second-place team (our rivals, and the same team I won the double with later on); I scored the goal to tie the game (a delicious, Beckham-esque FK) and we eventually put two more past them to win the game. We still came bottom in the league eventually but that win was fantastic.
The best game I've ever seen with one of the most iconic moments in college football history as the capper. I would just post the Statue of Liberty play, but it seems like everyone always forgets the thrill that led up to that moment.
Oh, and the video doesn't show Ian Johnson's marriage proposal to his girlfriend shortly after he scored.
as a united fan first and a huddersfield fan 2nd this would obviously be my all time favourite sporting moment (football is my favourite sport)
but this (today was special for me being a huddersfield lad) - exactly (to the day) 13 years later I might add was when huderfield won the playoff final in league one to get promoted to the championship (i will add a video when a decent one gets uploaded, right now it is a bunch of morons talking about it not showing it or really poor quality recordings using a potato)
The best moment as a supporter for me is without a doubt the 2010 Championship Play-Off Final between Blackpool and Cardiff City.
A lot of my friends who went to the play off games said the Notts Forest away leg was far better for drama, atmosphere and support. So this struck me as an interesting choice - did you attend at Forest before the Final?
