1992 NLCS Still Makes Me Sick

"The Catch" game (1982 NFC Championship game between the Cowboys and the 49ers).

The very-beatable Bengals were waiting to play the winner in the Super Bowl and I never wanted my team (Cowboys) to win a game more.

It hurts just thinking about it :~( :~( :~( :~(

A close second was the 1995 NFC Championship game (once again Cowboys vs. 49ers). The Cowboys were going for their 3rd consecutive Super Bowl and with the very-beatable Chargers waiting for them.

Troy Aikman opened the game with 3 INTs (which the 49ers converted into TDs and a 21-0 deficit). The Cowboys fought back courageously but came up short 38-28 :-t :-t :-t :-t

All that was back in the day when I rooted for a TEAM. None of this "The Cowboys can win but they have to allow Warrick Dunn to run for 120 yds. and a TD and they can't score more than 20 points on the Atlanta defense...".

Good ol' Sid Bream. Francisco Cabrera knocked him in from second. For a while, TBS had commercials where Sid and "Franky" would drive around in a big Braves' helmet remembering that ALCS while promoting the Braves.

Must suck to be a Pirates fan.

Yeah well suffer through the 2004 ALCS. I can remember screaming at the top of my lungs and having a fit when Torre decided to pitch to Ortiz instead on Mienkawitz.


Then there was that horrible 1995 ALDS against Seattle. Oh how I hated the Kingdome.

As a Braves fan, Game 7 of the 1991 World Series against the Twinkies was a tough loss to swallow. Lonnie Smith on first, Terry Pendleton puts one in the gap, Lonnie stops after rounding second, thinks it might get caught, makes a move back to second, sees ball drop, and only makes it to third.

I think it was 0-0 into extra innings, Braves loss.

Watching Hebert pull Gant off first pissed me off too. That ump should've been fired.

Game six of the 1985 World Series.
I guess you could call Don Denkinger the Bill Buckner of umpires.

One man's bane is another man's boon. Game 7 of the '92 NLCS was the greatest moment in sports for me.

I'm only 17, so I havent had a ton of heartbreaking moments quite yet.

But I remember just sitting on my bed in shock when Pujols took Lidge deep last year.

One of my earliest memories (re: age 3ish) is Ernest Byner's fumble against the Broncos. I remember hardly even knowing what was going on, but the announcers said the Browns weren't going to the Super Bowl and I cried. I can't watch that game on TV, and it's a lucky thing I was too young to remember the Drive.

Later, when Jose Mesa choked away game 7 of the '97 World Series I was miserable for weeks.

But the single most traumatic memory was the 6th game of the 1995 World Series. I was 10 years old, so it was the perfect confluence of being old enough to understand what was going on and young enough to sob into my pillow for hours. I was at a Halloween party that night and sat in the corner and watched the game the entire time. The Indians were down 3-2 in the series, but I knew they were the better team and I had absolute confidence--up to the final out--that they were going to win the series. But when Mark Wohlers recorded that last flyout, at that precise moment in my 10-year-old life, I realized that the playoffs are a total crapshoot.

I burst into tears and turned to my mom, who had just arrived to pick me up from the party. I looked at her and said "Mom, everybody knows the Indians are the best team in the league. Why can't they just give them the trophy?"
