How about MJ's last game as a Bull, or Rocky's last fight? 8-o

For a second, I thought you were talking about Rocky V, vs. Tommy Morrison in the alley. :-D

Another one that would have been incredible is Wilt's 100-point game. 8-o
1 3 4 6 7 8 8 9 10 15 16 23 32 37 42 44 49 51

I remember watching that, I still think Wrestlemania I with Andre slamming Big John Stud was better. Plus Mr. T and Hulk in the tag team match was kickass. ;-D

Most of the great events have been mentioned. One I haven't seen is Joe Lewis beating Max Schmeling would have been thrilling to watch.

I have to add one that occured in my lifetime.

Being the tennis fan, the event I would most have like to have seen in person - but missed but missed because I was in Basic Training - was the Sampras-Corretja semi-final match in the 1996 U.S. Open.

NEW YORK -- Exhausted to the point of sickness, barely able to move, forced to lean on his racket like a crutch between rallies, Pete Sampras survived an epic ordeal yesterday against indefatigable Alex Corretja.

Sampras vomited on court in the middle of the fifth-set tiebreaker and looked as if he would pass out. Yet somehow he summoned the strength to keep going and set up a second match-point with his 25th ace. Then he watched in utter relief as the Spaniard double-faulted to end one of the most dramatic matches in U.S. Open history, 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7).

Corretja collapsed to his knees and Sampras slumped onto the net before they embraced each other tenderly amid a long standing ovation after the 4-hour, 9-minute struggle -- the longest match of the tournament.

Simply amazing... :-°

1935 Masters, when Gene Sarazen hit golf's "shot heard round the world." A final round, 4-wood from 225 yards on the par 5, 15th hole that went in for a double-eagle, leading to a tournament win in a playoff. ;-D ;-D
