    I meant to start this one in celebration of my 500th post, but forgot. But anyway, here goes:

    As a fan: May 10, 1994, Phillies vs. Braves at Fulton County Stadium. Phillies led 8-1 heading into the 9th, but Braves tied it in their last at-bat (including a pinch-hit three-run homer from Mike Mordecai). Braves won it in the 15th, when Mike Stanton (who had already pitched four scoreless innings) bunted Deion Sanders home.

    As a working journalist: Jan. 3, 2000 Sugar Bowl, Florida State vs. Virginia Tech. Both Michael Vick and Peter Warrick were unstoppable on that night. I think there were something like 25 future NFL players on the field in that game.

    Maybe not all excitement... certainly excitement and/or resonance.

    1. Dolphins-Chargers, 1/2/1982
    2. Game 7, Marlins-Indians, 10/26/97
    3. Super Bowl XXXII, 1/25/98
    4. Super Bowl XXX, 1/28/96
    5. Final round (I had front-row seat on 18 since 8 in the morning at Winged Foot) of 1997 PGA, when the rainbow came right over Davis Love III's head. Ethereal.

    Without a doubt, Game 6 of the '75 Series (as a 13-year-year-old in the bleachers).
    As media, 1987, Providence-Georgetown at The Dunk (the night Rick Pitino wanted go time with John Thompson). Pop Lewis wasn't five feet in front of me when he drilled the three for the win that ignited the Friars' ride to the Final Four.
    As an adult fan, not because it was the most down-to-the-wire game I ever saw, but Tom Brady's first NFL start, with the Pats blowing out Indy. You can argue that was the day the dynasty began.

    Virginia Commonwealth at UConn, March 25, 1988. UConn wins & moves on to the NIT Final Four. An unreal night in the Field House.

    The bug game between the Tribe and Yanks in the playoffs last season was about as exciting as it gets for a fan.

    Fan: Broncos-Patriots playoff game two years ago, when Champ Bailey returned an interception 100-plus yards and lost it out of bounds at the goal line but replay didn't support it.
    Working: Jordan's first title with the Bulls

    As a fan: Francisco Cordova/Ricardo Rincon extra-inning no-hitter against the Astros in '97.

    On the job: Local boys basketball team upsets state's top-ranked team in district playoffs. Yeah, I suck.

    1996 AFC Divisional Playoff -- Colts 10, Chiefs 7... game-time temp around 10... my joints freeze, and Marty does what Marty does.

    1997-- Mizzou-Nebraska... the flea-kicker. To this day, seeing that highlight makes me wanna puke. Literally.

    2003 -- Mizzou-Nebraska... MU's streak of futility ends in dramatic fashion, and I get to see it. That was a fun night in Columbia.
