What's the best match you ever saw?
Sun, August 19, 2007

Usually, it’s long after you’ve assumed the position on a bar stool and have somehow managed to have blown your cover and exposed yourself as a being guilty of being a sportswriter. That’s when somebody will ask you the damn question: “What’s the greatest game you ever covered?”

My answer has always been the same. “Sorry. Can’t do it. Covered too many to name one.”

Sun Media writers recall the greatest sporting event they have ever witnessed

Waching the last game of the '72 series vs the Soviets at school in 7th grade, the "Miracle on Ice" US v Soviets and Boise State beating Oklahoma with the Hook and Ladder play followed by the Statue of Liberty in the Fiesta Bowl last season.

Every fight that George Chuvalo ever fought. Never went down in over 90 fights. (Ali, Foreman, Frasier)

A heart as big as a tank.

A incredibly courageous Man in both his boxing career and his tragic personal life. A very, very admirable individual.

The 2005 Grey Cup that went into overtime was an instant classic. The 1989 and 1987 Grey Cups were great.

Billy Mills winning gold against world record holder Ron Clarke literally had 100,000 in shock and wonder.This 10,000 meter olympic event in Mexico City presented courage, fortitude,and character to those who understood the significanceof the victory.Bob Beamon jumping 14 inches further than the held world record at the time rocked the track world for 25 years and is heralded by many as the single greatest track victory in the Olympics.

I was 21 at the time of the '72 Summit Series. I remember clearly the media's pre-series hype, which was essentially, "What the heck are the Russians thinking?" We were going to win all eight games, that is, if the Russians chose to hang around to finish the series. Nope, as a ball fan, give me Mazeroski's homer that clinched the 1960 World Series for the Pirates at venerable Forbes Field, or the Twins-Braves seven-game World Series thriller of 1991. But the most memorable? Why, that's Carleton Fisk's 12th inning game-winning homer at Fenway in the sixth game of the '75 World Series, you know, that series the Sox won three games to four over the Cincinnati Reds.

Along with the 1994 Grey Cup, the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. Canadian mens 4*100 metre relay team winning gold. After, Donovin Bailey already won gold in the 100 metre sprint.

My greatest game was the 1985 NCAA Men's Basketball Final. Villanova over highly rated/favoured Georgetown.

Under the category of "favourite sports memory": There is probably no greater example of true sportsmanship than the images of John Stephen Akhwari of Tanzania finishing the 1968 Olympic marathon. A lot of glory goes to the current winners the memories of whom soon fade but Akhwari's action is indelibly written upon millions of hearts, including mine.

For me it was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, May 16, 1971. Chicago Blackhawks were leading 2-0 and had the Montreal Canadiens on the ropes, until Jacques Lemaire's slapshot from just inside centre ice somehow eluded goalie Tony Esposito. From then you could see the Hawks' confidence drain away and the Canadiens - who earlier beat the Phil Esposito-Bobby Orr-led Boston Bruins in one of the biggest series upsets in the history of professional sports - kept coming in waves, with Henri Richard scoring both the tying and winning goals. Rookie goaltender Ken Dryden took care of the best Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita could throw at him to win the Conn Smythe as the playoff MVP. I was only 12 at the time, but became a Habs fan for life that night.

1972 was amazing because it was so competitive.

It was our way of freedom against communism.

More than just hockey.

The way Canada came back after going to Russia was incredible. Nobody thought they could do it.
