For some reason the gold medal game of the 2010 Vancouver olympics sticks out in my head.I remember the USA being down a goal with like 30 seconds to go and scoring it with around 6 seconds left and then Candada winning on a Crosby goal in OT.
At the time I was in A Buffalo Wild Wings and every single person had there eyes glued on the TV
This would me mine as well.
The moment I remember most from that game was Curtis Granderson slipping on the wet grass (rained a lot that week), which lead to a lead off double to begin the bottom of the 7th inning. Cardinals scored two runs to take a 4-3 lead.
As great as 2006 was, that World Series still hurts six years later.
To me, that slip WAS the series, for us.
I remember looking at my wife and saying these (rather dumb, in retrospect) words:
"That wasn't his fault. Ah, well...we'll be back next year."
Can't imagine WHAT I was thinking!
No! I greet all my guests with manic enthusiasm. I see to it that everyone is greeted, feted, and fed in the most amazing way! If there is a rain-out I've got a great DVD (Misery! Love that Kathy Bates!)
Why do you say that? Do you think the Tigers will loose? Wait? You believe the Tigers will loose if I invite you to my house don't you? Oh no! The Tigers are going to loose. rklewis2 said so. Well, no use watching the TV now. I'm just going to go to bed. Yeah, if I can just manage to sleep through the next three days I can refill my meds and everything will be rosy again.
That's true isn't it?
Many many 'disappointing' losses ..but none really 'devastating'.
Charlie Hughes dying on the Field near end of Lions/Bears game was as near devastating as I can recall.
Disappointing from an individual's standpoint include Milt Wilcox and Galaragga's each losing perfect game w/2 outs in ninth inning ..Galarraga's even more so because he actually had it but Joyce blew it.
From a 'team' standpoint ..too many to list. But 1987 playoff loss ranks right up there, along with game 163.
Wings/Pens Game 7 in 09.
As for the Tigers, probably of all things Game 162 of 2006 when we blew a lead to KC to let the Twins win the division.
