    I have repealed my previous erroneous post. Carry on.

    Were these supposed to be in order? First one I thought of was Ali/Liston, and that's at 93.

    They got the wrong Secretariat picture--should have the one with Turcotte looking over his shoulder at the rest of the field in the distance.

    A couple others that unless I missed them, deserve consideration: Jesse Owens at the 36 Olympics, Fisk waving the ball fair.

    I was shocked by how low the Ali/Liston shot was. Sure, it wasn't the longest fight or even close to the most important fight in Ali's career. But there aren't many shots more iconic than that one. Should have been an easy top 10 selection.

    No bloodied YA Tittle in the end zone? No Babe Ruth at home plate on Babe Ruth Day at the Stadium in 1948, mere months before his death?

    Lists like this are totally subjective but it's hard to imagine a top 100 without those two shots.

    Totally agree with the Babe Ruth photo. I have that one in my office.

    Love the one of Rodman flying out of bounds.

    Another personal favorite not on the list. Looks photoshopped, but it's not:

    Photo of Keri Strug looks like any profile shot. Don't agree there. And no "Miracle on Ice."
