Oh how quickly we forget. Talk about getting caught up in the moment.

Look, I thought yesterday's win for our women over Brazil was incredible. Simply incredible. Bad calls by the referees screwed us left and right, we were down a player for 55 minutes, scored a great goal to tie it in the 122nd minute, had a sensational goalkeeper performance from Hope Solo, etc, etc.

But the #5 dramatic moment in sports? Come on. Will I remember this soccer victory in 10+ years? Maybe.

Will I remember the other nine moments listed? Um, yes. Those are the images we will fully have engraved in our minds for the rest of our lives as sports fans.

We can even remember the announcers' calls for most all of them. Hell, just last week at the bar, I was quoting Vin Scully's call of Kirk Gibson's homer to my friends. And that's not even the call being played on these highlights! That alone shows how significant the moment was; we can remember multiple calls of it.

And ahead of the groundball through Buckner's legs? Really? Sigh. I'm going to stop before I anger too many ladies out there.

Anyway, what do you think? Get your vote on:
