Truly great moments in sport

Post  precinct14 on Mon Apr 18, 2011 6:37 am

Billy Mills' 10000m gold medal run at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and more, as beautifully captured and expressed by director Kon Ichikawa, in the official film:

Here's the goal of the century, graphically visible, in all its brilliance, but with Finnish commentary:



And here it is, plastered in captions, but with its original, unforgettable, Hugo Morales Argentinian commentary:

What a terrible advert for football that game was, especially considering the quality of both teams. Thank God for Messi's goal! cheers

It amazes me that Real Madrid resigned itself to tie 0-0 in the Bernabeu...

Typical Mourinho. He always plays for 0-0 at home, then 0-1 away.

Sure, he is a fantastic manager that wins a hellova lot. But his teams are incredibly boring and play horrible negative football.

Which just happened about 10 mins ago. QPR are now Champions!!!!!!!!!!!!


But for how long? The hearing into the hoops signing a player illegally starts on Tuesday and could result in us having points deducted. Holy crap, it's hard to know whether to celebrate today or not. scratch

Plaxico Burress describes his journey from Super Bowl hero to the Latin Quarter to the Oneida Correctional Facility:

"I had a drink in my left hand," Plaxico Burress says. "I’m just walking up the stairs. And, you know, it was dark. And I kind of, you know, missed a step. That’s when I felt my gun ... started to slide. I went to grab it ... to stop it from falling. Pow."

"I knew it had went off. I saw the fire, like, come through my jeans."

"I took a couple more steps and my jeans were like — my jeans are wet. And I looked down. I had some Chuck Taylors on and they were — the white was all red. I’m in trouble," he says.

Plaxico Burress never thought he would go to jail, even after his wife Tiffany, an attorney, told him he could be made an example. His attorney, Benjamin Brafman, informed Plaxico Burress that following Mayor Bloomberg’s press conference, bail had been raised from $10,000 to $250,000.

"I came out, you know, from my little holding cell to the arraignment, and — (chuckle) I sat down with — with Ben," Plaxico Burress says. "He was like, ‘We got a problem.’ I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ He said, ‘Mayor Bloomberg just went on TV, said you should be, you know, punished to the full extent of the law.’ And you know what I said after that? I said, ‘Who is Mayor Bloomberg?’

Without a shadow of a doubt in my mind, Cal Ripken Jr's record breaking 2,131 consecutive games. What an achievement! The O's put on quite the party in Camden Yards, with the president and vice president in attendance and everything. It was really sweet, his kids threw the first two pitches and to cap it off he hit a homer. What could be better? He is the greatest. At the top of the fifth inning, when the nuber officially fliped to 2131 he received a 22 minute standing ovation from the crowd, the opposing team and all the umpires. He's incredibly modest and had to be basically shoved out of the dugout to do his victory lap and shake hands and high five all the fans. I have a commemorative baseball from that game, signed by Cal himself. He's a local Maryland boy, which makes it even better really. I saw him once at a Minor League game, it was incredible! Yeeeeah, come on birds!

wool im looking at the spreads and Arizona is only 3.5 point favourites over the Raiders.  Guess that valiant loss versus tha Chargers must've impressed Vegas.  Anyone think Oakland has a shot this Sundee?

Palmer’s arm strength still an issue: The Cardinals (4-1 SU, 3-2 ATS) stayed in first place in the NFC West with a 30-20 home win over Washington last Sunday. A pick-six off Kirk Cousins with 18 seconds left also allowed them to cover as 5.5-point favorites. The turnover margin was 4-0 overall, something the team can’t count on this week.
Quarterback Carson Palmer was considered questionable heading into last game with a throwing-shoulder injury. He did pass for 250 yards, but it took him 44 attempts (5.7 ypa), and his arm strength is still not 100 percent. Palmer will have extra motivation this week after playing with the Raiders in 2011 and 2012.
Arizona continues to play very good run defense (75.8 YPG, ranked third), despite being decimated along its front seven. The pass defense hasn’t been as good, giving up the most yards in the league (309 YPG), and the yards per attempt (8.1) ranking 29th.
Raiders covering but not winning: The Raiders (0-5 SU, 3-2 ATS) have been more than respectable against the spread, despite being one of just two winless NFL teams. They put a big scare in the Chargers last week before ultimately losing 31-28 as 7.5-point home dogs. 
Rookie quarterback Derek Carr (81.8 rating) had the best game of his young career last week (282 yards, four touchdowns). He finally got help (114 yards) from the anemic running game after averaging 61.5 YPG in the first four. 
Carr will need another good passing effort on Sunday to keep this game close and justify the point spread.

The pinhedz memory goes back an extraordinarily long time--I can remember both the last time I cared about a baseball game, AND the last time I cared about a basketball game.

baseball is pretty boring until October and then all the tedious staring becomes pregnant with the suspence of a Leone.  but you probably wouldn't know that because the teams of your general geographic vicinity don't do jack and shit come OctoberQuest.
