Elway's celebration after the GB Super Bowl win made it! Good video overall:

Also the CU Buff's "Miracle in Michigan" is included (still the greatest college football play I've ever seen). Patrick Roy from his Montreal days, too.

All those San Diego Charger clips were extremely inspirational.

Thank you so much! That brought back so many memories and goosebumps. So many great moments and reminders of some of the idiots that have been a part of those memories. One of the best memories was when the Jets beat the Colts in SB III. I had made a ton of bets, at school with the boys who called me an idiot and why girls shouldn't watch football, for the Jets. I cleaned up on Monday! Yeah I got told it was a lucky guess.

Mutumbo beating Seattle is in there too.

As is Kordell's bomb against Michigan - I remember that day lucidly, it was like my 8th or 9th birthday and my whole family (of CU and DU alum) was there watching the game.

IMO - Derek Redmond finishing the 400m at the 1992 Olympics, AFTER he blew out his right hamstring.

It's a shame there's not a single UN-EDITED version on YouTube, morons think putting music over it makes it better, ... what the ****? I was only 16 at the time but I remember watching it live and how the entire stadium went NUTS trying to spur him on to cross the finish line, it was an awesome moment!

Did you know the crew of Apollo 8 were on hand for the coin flip of SB III! ****ing tits!

Elway and Walter will alway be my heroes...

The flashes they show of Walter in there and the Elway clips just give me chills... There's actually a lot of chill worthy stuff in there tho but those 2 stand out to me.

For Elway and Walter much like the song says you've got to lose to know how to win and both those guys who was so good their whole careers getting those titles near/at the end will always probably be my 3 fav moments in sports...

I being a Reggie Miller fan also LOVE them showing him doing the choke sign to Spike Lee.
Reggie scoring 8 points in 11 second is still one of the craziest things I ever saw.

I still remember seeing the Gibson homer when I was like 8 and knowing I had just seen history... another cool moment in the vid...

When I was like 5 I picked the Wolfpack to beat Houston just because I liked their name in a bet with my dad so I also love seeing Jimmy V running looking for someone to hug..

Only thing I wish they would have done was showed the TD pass from The Drive , then the Helicopter and then John doing the fist pump they showed...

But that drum build while they show the flashes of Walter totally gave me chills... The Drum roll under the Babe Ruth homer and the Jordan dunk with the flickery old looking video being timed up with the drums was sweet as well...

Good find Titan...

man how many times in his career did Jordan nail that jumper over a defender at the buzzer? seemingly every time he took that shot it was money

I still get chills from that Kirk Gibson homer. And that was against Eck.

That is one of my earliest sports memories. Watched it at my grandparents house when I was seven. My older brother was pulling for the A's, so of course I had to be a contrarian and root for the Dodgers. I went crazy when Gibson hit it out. It was The Natural playing out in real life. The first time I can remember being really thrilled about the result of a sporting event.

The one that gave me chills was Gretzky. The names Jari Kuri and Marty McSorely really brought that back. I remember watching him play back in like 1990, 1991? I think that is my earliest sports memory triggered by it

Michael Johnson was another good one. I ran the 400m in high school right about the time he made good in the Olympics. 1996 and 2000? Something like that.

Pretty sure it only includes stuff from pre 2000 Zona... So that's why there's no Phelps no Earnhardt crash .... When I watched it I googled the crash date just to see if it was before 2k. But that video is stuff from the last century.
