Thread: Biggest Sports Goofs.....

  1. #1

    Biggest Sports Goofs.....

    Since it was supposed to be the start of The Masters tomorrow, have been watching Golf Channel a little more than normal. Last night caught a couple minutes on the Robert DiVencenzo debacle where he signed an incorrect scorecard and missed out on a playoff for a shot at winning The Masters. I have never seen a more dejected winner than Bob Goalby sitting there basically trying to process that he had just won on a technicality.

    So that got me to thinking...what is the biggest sports goof you can remember?

    The one that jumps out at me immediately is the Chris Webber timeout in the '93 championship game against North Carolina.

    July 22, 1986, Mets @ Reds.........2 outs bottom 9 when Dave Parker nonchalantly tries to catch a routine fly and drops it allowing the Mets to tie the game..........New York would eventually win the game, in 14 innings, but a huge fight broke out when Ray Knight push Eric Davis of a base that he stole..........Both benches cleared..........It was amazing!

    I'm guessing we're thinking more mental than physical, right? So no Bill Buckner.

    Does Buttfumble qualify?

    That was one of them. The other blunder he made was in a Super Bowl where he picked up a fumble and was about to run it in for a touchdown but slowed down to showboat and a Bill was able to strip it from behind for a touchback. The Cowboys still won the game though. Stinkin' Cowboys.

    Jean Van de Velde -- that is a great one!

    I remember one of the announcers said he would have been better off just using a putter on the 18th hole and he would have won it. About a month after the Open was over, Van de Velde went back to the course and teed off with a putter on 18 and made a double bogey, which would have won him the title. His caddy should have broken his driver in half walking from 17 green to 18 tee!

    I'm shocked that the two recent blunders in the Super Bowls where the Falcons and Seahawks snatched defeat from the jaws of victory giving wins to the Patriots on both occasions.. Neither team has ever recovered from those coaching gaffes.

    Another infamous blunder was Freddy Brown of Georgetown getting confused and throwing the ball to North Carolina's James Worthy in the final seconds costing the Hoyas a chance of winning the NCAA men's basketball championship. That was a jaw dropping mental error that rivals C-Web's ill fated time out.
