Posted on 03/19/2013 7:11:17 PM PDT by navysealdad
At the end of 1999 ESPN ran this breathtaking montage of some of histories' most famous sports happenings and personalities. There are few things better in life than sports highlights set to music, and this is the best of the bunch. This video is basically 7 minutes of chills. Memories of events you may witnessed, clips of events you only heard people mention.

Some great memories. Haven’t seen that in a long time.
The super bowl shuffle is not a great moment in sports.
Too rapid transitions on most of the images, at least for me.
only a split second flash of Secretariat winning the Triple Crown by 31 lengths??...still the greatest sport moment i ever saw. And, way too much of Ali....
I have a dial-up connection and cannot download these.
I wonder if the famous photo of Ty Cobb sliding into 3rd base is among them?
For many years it was considered the greatest sports photo of all time.
With all the hockey they gave Bobby Orr’s “The Goal” what 2 frames? Also missing (or at least I missed them) was the fumblroski, the immaculate reception, Mark Spitz, Joe Namath, Nadai Komanich, Sugar Ray Lenard, Carlton Fisk coaxing a foul-ball fair, shoeless Kip Keno, flag wrapped Bruce Jenner... Oh well, I suppose there were so many great moments that they couldn’t include them all in a short video.
I didn’t see the Fumblerooski, but I did see Franco Harris and Carlton Fisk. Secretariat was there for about a tenth of a second.
The only thing that could have been better would have been to see the two flag-burners get knocked flat on their butts.
Left out Carl Yaztremski throwing out Lou Brock at second base in the World Series.
Now it's complete
No Bert Campaneris throwing his bat at Larrin LeGrow?
Um, that was after 1999.
No Barry Krauss and the goal line stand?
For later reading
Oh, you're no fun anymore.
My vote is Willy Mays’ catch off of Vic Wertz drive in the 1954 World series (shown).
Is Orr celebrating, or landing on his face?
LOL, I don’t know how he ended up landing.
Couple things I'd change.
Too much Ali, not enough Marciano, Frazier.
Replace Dale's victory donut with:
The Pass in the Grass.
It was Cleveland Indians pitcher Bob Feller who handed his bat to Babe Ruth.
