    Any sport?
    Any era?

    Fifth Down, yes.

    The Tuck Rule was a bullshit call, and the league embarrassed itself over many months later by trying to tell us the rule said something it didn't say. And, that call changed the course of league history, because without it the Patriots dynasty doesn't get off the ground.

    This. And even more so since it ended resulting in the most undeserved national championship in college football history.

    The '72 Olympic gold medal men's basketball game, which I've heard of, but didn't see.

    The Roy Jones gold medal fight, which I did watch. I still remember the announcer saying before the decision that if Jones didn't win, that there was something seriously wrong. Then Jones didn't win.

    Put me down for Fifth Down, with the call that cost Armando Galarraga's perfecto a close second.
