Re: Most Painful Sports Loss of your Lifetime
The first thing that pops in my head is Carson Palmer squirming in pain after the Kimo hit in the playoffs against the Steelers. I damn near cried. All the years waiting, 15, and all the excitement evaporated on his first throw of the game. Devastating, demoralizing, and depressing. The result of the game was a foregone conclusion after the injury. Easily the most unfair and unlucky thing I've ever seen in sports with everything involved with the loss.
*Bengals loss to SF in their 2nd Super Bowl meeting. I was still pretty young so it didn't sting that much.
*Christian Laettner beating UK. Also, still pretty young.
*Arizona beating UK in the '97 Final. UK was unreal that year. They would've clobbered Arizona if their best player, Derek Anderson, could've played.
*Reds losing in '99 to the Mets in a one-game playoff after the Reds choked against the Brewers in the season-ending series.
