    2002 Western Conference Finals
    1985 NBA Draft Lottery
    Several other NBA draft lotteries
    2001 Pepsi 400 (Earnhardt Jr. wins at Daytona in first race since his father was killed there.)
    Duke-UNLV in the 1991 Final Four (I think UNLV was trying to shave points and it got out of hand)

    I'm not even going to get into boxing.

    I would say the 1998 NFC Title game, but only if Denny Green was on the take.....

    If someone said the Ohio State-Miami national championship game a few years back, I wouldn't argue, but probably just a really bad call.
