    What's sports moment would you want to be a part of?

    So CyGuy and I were talking at the bar and were wondering what you all thought. Out of the 5 sports moments listed above which one would you want to do to win a game.


    I chose the walk off homerun just because I'm a huge baseball fan. CyGuy chose the game winning basket and so did the other guy we were hanging out with.


    So which one would you guys choose?

    P.S.- Mug Night got the best of me so sorry for errors in the post.

    I've had a grand slam that was a walk off only because it guaranteed 10 run rule. Not the same as a true walk-off, but it's a great feeling!

    Had a couple of game winning goals in soccer, one in the last minute.


    I suppose out of your list, probably a game winning basket. My best friend had a couple senior year that made me a little jealous.

    Was coaching when a player of mine intercepted pass on 4th down in overtime to win state title. That was pretty sweet.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I have hit a game winning shot in basketball. It was a great feeling, but I chose walkoff homer. Not everyone could hit a homerun.

    I've had multiple walk off hits, but never a home run.

    Walkoff homerun. I never managed one of those in baseball in high school, but I did in a slowpitch softball game, which extended our run in the league tournament. It was everything I ever imagined it would be.

    Re: What's sports moment would you want to be a part of?

    My senior of college we entered our last regular season game 9-1 and played a team who was also 9-1. With the how the district rankings worked out and how games ended up earlier in the day the winner of the game would go onto the D2 national playoffs and we all knew that going into the game.

    With 14 seconds left in the game from the 5 yard line we called a play where I pulled and was the personal protector on a roll out stretch pass play which we scored on and won the game. So I didn't score the TD but it was awesome to be out there leading the QB and see the whole thing uravel right in front of you as I really only had to pick up a guy after the ball was pretty much gone. I can still see that play in my head like it was yesterday.

    Also played in two games in college where we won in double and triple OT with a walk off touchdown similar to ISU-Iowa 2011. Those are a nerve racking blast to play in.

    In high school I hit two game winning shots in bball. The excitement and sense of urgency that is created during a game winning drive in football is more fun to be a part of IMO.

    Gotta go with the Walk-off Homerun. Never hit one but trotting around the bases with all eyes on you, knowing you just won it. No other sport gives you the victory trot that everyone has to watch.

    My senior of high school we ended up winning like 2 games I think. Anyway, one of those games we came back from behind to either tie with about 2 seconds left. My best buddy in high school stole the inbounds pass to half court. Took one dribble. Put it up just past the half court line. Drilled it. Really cool to see it all go down. I never really had the chance to do something like that but think it would be great to do!

    Give me the 160 yard 7 iron snap hook from the left side deep rough to 15 feet and then cupping a birdie putt with 6 feet of break in it.

    At Augusta of course. With a green jacket on the line.

    This would be my second choice hands down.

    Game winner in basketball. Did it once in a youth church league. Incredible feeling. Can't imagine doing it on a big stage.
