Re: Most Painful Sports Loss of your Lifetime
1. Carson Palmer's knee going boom. I literally didn't watch any of the game after that play and its still the worst game I have ever watched.
2. Kenyon Martin's leg going boom. I didn't watch this game either as it happened while I was in 10th grade. I remember hearing about it in the hallway on my way to English and just losing it. The best player in the country just went down on the best team in the country a week before the tournament. Then the committee goes out and gives us a #2 seed. Thanks guys.
3. Al Leiter.
4. Ohio State vs Miami - BCS Title game - And not for the reason that you would think. I am a huge Buckeye fan. My friends girlfriend had a few of us over that night to watch the game. Since it went to overtime, it lasted longer than expected and her parents kicked us out because it was 'too late'. I had to listen to the final few plays by Miami on the radio as we went 65 down a 35 trying to get to a TV.
5. I don't remember the exact game, or who the Reds were even playing.... but they won 15-2 and there were TWO brawls in the game. Why was it disappointing? I had tickets. My friend talked me into going out with him that afternoon and he promised he would get me back in time for the game. As we got back to the parking lot in Florence, Kentucky he went to start his car and it didn't start. Dead battery. We got a jump from a guy and drove through the parking lot. As we stopped at a stop sign in the parking lot, the car died. Wound up calling someone to come down there. My friends went to the store to get a battery. Came back, wrong battery. Had to go back again. By the time we got back to my house, it was already past 8. I didn't make it to the game. I still get angry over missing that game.
All Cincinnati basketball related:
West Virginia - half court in the tourney.
UCLA double overtime.
Syracuse in the BE tournament a few years ago.
