It didn't take place on a diamond, or a court, or a gridiron. It wasn't run indoors, on a track, or on grass. It took place on a stage and if it doesn't change you just a little bit, you may be watching for the wrong reasons.
It may not be dramatic, but as far as sports moments go, there can be no debate that it makes any list in regards to how memorable it was.
Makes me tear up every single time.

The 1995 Mariners, back when I used to like baseball. The Mariners came back from 13 games back to take the AL West. They started out the ALDS down 2 games to 0 to the Yankees, but came back and to tie the seires 2-2. Down 4-2 in the 6th inning of game 5, the Mariners came back to tie 4-4 in the 8th. The game went to extra innings and the Yankees took the lead 5-4 in the bottom of the 11th. In the top of the 11th with Joey Cora and Ken Griffey Jr. on base, Edgar Martinez hits a walk off double, Griffey beats the throw to the plate scoring from 1st base. That season was just a series of comebacks for the M's, unfortunately they couldn't get bast the Indians in the ALCS though, but still an amazing season.
That **** was heart breaking. Luckily for us, Rashard Lewis made some insane shots in that series. And that freaky game where Aslton of all people, just went off for like 26. Crazy. That was a special season for me.
As for another personally "dramatic" moment...I'll always remember when Romo took over for Bledsoe. There was just something about it. Just had that feeling that it was kind of a big moment. Granted, it hasnt amounted to a Super Bowl yet. But the QB switch finally ended our drawn out QB search. Stopped the damn carousel. And even that game against New York...dude comes in and throws an INT on his first pass, but then he was just off from that point on. Just a really great moment. Similar to when Brady/Warner/Big Ben took over...just without the trophy at the end of the year. :/
It's all made the more memorable by the video in my sig. haha.
This easily is tops for me. I have a bigger passion for the Longhorns then anything else anyway, this was my favorite team of all time, and the hype leading up to this game made it incredible. Really should I say all season. I think I would have enjoyed this a ton even if my team wasn't playing. #1 vs #2 at the beginning of the year, two teams power housing everyone week in and out. Dominant Hesiman front runners all over the place, easily the two best teams in football and nobody slipped up.
I remember thinking there was no way we were gonna lose this game with Vince. Sometime after the Michigan Rose Bowl and the game vs Ohio St I just felt like he was always gonna find a way. This game had so many big plays in it, but after this play I remember me and the 5 people I was in the room with going nuts. After the TD we all ran out into the apartment complex, drunk, screaming with our shirts off like idiots.
Pretty much everyone in the entire metroplex was watching the game too so a bunch of other people started to come outside as well. I remember being so amped out afterwards, can't remember when I got my voice back. What a way to end a great game, and a great season.

I could go on and on about the special ones that I know but I'll just stick with some recent ones. Duke beating Butler for the National Title & then of course my VCU Rams making probably the most impressive run to the Final Four ever.
Good news Minnesota fans. This is actually my fave even tho I am a Cards fan, there is a tie to this. My family are huge Twin fans and we have the 1991 World Series video thing and I used to watch it all the time. And it has Jack Buck's unbelievable call (And we'll see you tomorrow night!). And thats why its awesome to me.
It's kind of sad how people forget some of the best because they weren't recent.
(fast forward to 3:03)
I was watching this with all my friends live, and when we won at the end, there was much, much jubilation. It concluded with a dog pile.
1. Twins game 163 win
2. Favre TD pass vs 49ers as time expires
4. This race
5. Vince Young
6. Women's WC over Brazil
7. David Tyree
8. App State
This is my tentative list of ones I remember. I was only 7 in 1998 when the Vikes should have won the Super Bowl, but I do remember being heartbroken. I was too young to count it. I wish I was old enough to have witnessed the Twins win in 87 or 91...
Manchester United vs Bayern Munich. Munich are 1:0 up with 3 minutes left. United go on to win it in normal time 2:1.

1) Rutgers-Louisville (Pandemonium in Piscataway)
2) Titans-Rams Super Bowl 34
3) Cowboys-Giants 07 Divisional Round (that last desperation pass led to immediate heartbreak, I really thought we were headed to the SB that year)
4) Every Reggie Miller performance at the Garden.
5) Giants-49ers Wildcard game (forget the year, but it was the one where TO scored and celebrated and Strahan came over and pointed to the scoreboard... and then SF had that ridiculous comeback.)
6) Boise St- Oklahoma Fiesta Bowl.
7) Cardinals- Steelers SuperBowl solely on the fact that after Fitz scored that TD in the 4th Qtr with 2 min left, lets just say I never thought I won $50,000 and lost it so quickly in my life... **** YOU BEN ROETHLISBERGER!
8) Marshall-Toledo game where Leftwich was injured and carried down the field by his OLine.

Derrick Brooks, my favorite player, taking an INT to the house in the Super Bowl was a special moment, but it wasn't that exciting because we dominated that game.
Ronde's INT TD off McNabb the game before that was just as big too.
This by far. I always knew Kemba would find a way to win it, but I was so hyped up going into the play that I couldn't breathe when he hit the shot. I've probably watched it again and again about 50 times since.
The day Madrid won the league on the final game & took it from Barca. I'll never forget Diarra & Reyes' goals. Probably the loudest I've ever yelled for a Madrid game until this years Copa del Rey final.
For me it was either the 90s series with the Pacers and Knicks when Reggie Miller hit three 3-pointers in like 5 game seconds, en route to knocking NY out of the playoffs, or it was the 2006 AFC Champ Game where Manning lead a huge 2nd half comeback (or the Pats choked away a huge lead, however you want to put it :D ), en route to a SB win.
