Yep, the ball-girl catch was fake.


Speeaking of ball-girls. I remember watching a game where a ball girl was nearly hit by a line drive, and the announcers were worried about ehr safety and getting hurt. Can't find the clip

Re: Sports video memories

The greatest swimming race in history. Going into the 2000 Olympics the Americans had never lost the event and anchor leg swimmer Gary Hall Jr predicted before the games that the Australians would be 'smashed like guitars'. The Aussies, featuring Michael Klim and Ian Thorpe were determined to use home advantage to make sure that didn't happen. This is what happened next . . . .

I remember it from 2000 ... it was great to be an Australian. Ian Thorpe's swim was amazing, down half a body length on Hall Jr, and came back and won. The salute afterwards was awesome too.

While stumbling around the other day, I came across this recollection of Derek Redmond from the 1992 Games in Barcelona. Very nice piece, good for maintaining perspective.

Re: Sports video memories

Steve Ovett's apearance at the 1984 games were pretty memorable too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHRMs...eature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOZi1...eature=related

Bert Cameron pulled a hamstring in the semi-final of the 400 meter dash at the 1984 games and went on to qualify for the final, for which he couldn't compete in.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xk8MGifQN0

Emil Zatopek is always a sight to watch, it was a pity about Chris Brasher in that race though.

And the unforgettable Miruts Yifter(The Shifter).

I remember seeing that moment live in 1992. It was truly heartbreaking.

On a lighter note, probably the greatest Winter Olympics moment so far this century:
2006 Womens Snowboard Cross Final

Worth it for the BBC commentary alone.

What a pity this catch didn't count. It's still an impressive effort!

Re: Sports video memories

I still get chills seeing this play in the 1992 Sugar Bowl.

The Rundown

George Teague runs down Lamar Thomas and takes the ball away from him as Alabama wins the game and National Championship.





and just for good measure, (and because I saw it on youtube), The Goal Line Stand that won the 1978 National Championship.

Johnny Rodgers Punt Return

One of the greatest Husker moments ever.

(Not too many announcers like Lyell Bremser still left in the world...)

Re: Sports video memories

Talk about your heads up play!

High school football game, the tight end catches the ball in the air but is going to fall outof bounds at the back fo the end zone. While in the air, he catches the ball and pitches it back to a teammate who is legally in bounds in said end zone. Touchdown!
