As we approach the end of the decade, many sports shows, newspapers and magazines are counting down the top moments of the last 10 years. Fans are remembering the great plays, athletes and championships that helped shape the 2000s.
History: This is one of the reasons sports are so great. It's not always about predicting the next champion or finding the next super star. Sometimes it's about recalling the great things that have already happened. Athletes work hard to perform to the best of their abilities. When they accomplish something amazing, they make history. Fans will always remember Syracuse beating Connecticut in six overtimes in the 2009 Big East basketball tournament, or the Red Sox making a dramatic comeback over the Yankees in the 2004 American League Championship Series. These are moments that will stand the test of time and become a part of sports legend.
Fans: Sports have a way of bringing us back to certain moments in time. As fans grow older, they'll always remember where they were when certain sporting events took place. Boston baseball fans will always remember where they were when the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, the team's first in 86 years. College football fans in Texas know exactly what they were doing when Vince Young and their Longhorns knocked off USC to win the 2006 Rose Bowl. Tennis fans can recite every point in Rafael Nadal's amazing victory over Roger Federer in the 2008 Wimbledon finals. These moments are so great that they have the power to bring fans back to when they first happened.
The end of the 2000s gives fans a chance to remember the best of the best from the last 10 years. Whether it was an epic overtime victory or ending a championship drought, these are the moments that defined a decade and will last forever in the minds of fans.
