Yep. You're also forgetting Tiger Woods and his epic showdown with Rocco. Don't remember a single golf tournament from after that.

Tiger at the '08 US Open may very well be the greatest sporting performance I will have ever seen in my life

From an objective standpoint, I'd go with 1980 or 1991.

Having lived in Northern California, my personal favorites are 1989 through Sept. 1990. I could also get behind the Bad Boy Pistons and UNLV, too.

Kansas-Memphis national championship was 2008 as well. The Chalmers shot/ OT game. Surprised you left that out.

I'm a bit of a dork, and for the longest time, I've rated every major sporting event of the year (at least, the ones I consider important), and then I add up the score at the end of the year to see how "good" of a year it was.

Totally subjective, so obviously others may see my ratings and think I'm an idiot.

For the record, 2008 is my highest rated year. I've included what I had for this year, last year, and '08 to this point. Again, these are just my ratings for how intriguing and competitive the events were.

Also, please PLEASE excuse my quirky editorials for each one XD. Like I said, I'm a dork.
