Top 5 Sports Memories: Number 4

If you have anything you want to add to my memory feel free to comment, if you want give me your top 5, I expect everyone's to be different. 
Honorable Mentions: David Tyree's Catch...Kevin Dyson comes up 1 yard short...Giants commit 11 False Starts...IMA Game of the Century
Number 5: 2001 Huskies beat the Canes in explosive Husky Stadium

Number 4

November 6, 2000 Antonio Freeman's amazing catch:

Rather than explain what happened on the play itself here is the video:

I was 11 when this play happened so I had a bed-time, but my parents usually didn't care too much when I went to sleep. This was sort of one of those occasions, they told me to go to bed, but I didn't want to, which turned out to be an great decision for me. I don't remember much about the game until the play other than that it was a cold game and the field looked like crap.

But when the play happened all I remember thinking is OH MY GOODNESS there is no way that happened! How!?! What?!? WOW...I had to be quiet so my parents didn't wake up but I was just screaming in my head thinking about how amazing and crazy that play was.

For those who weren't watching, which is most people reading this, the play was just a thing of beauty. Watching the replay is nice, but when something is live it is just so much better. 

That was back in the days when Favre was sorta young, and I had no hatred for him...those days are long gone now, he is my least favorite player in the NFL...Second in all sports right next to LeBron James.

Favre is a good player, but stayed around too long, was unloyal to everyone and then decided he wanted to share his..."member"...with a woman who didn't want anything to do with him. I hope he is retired, it is a few years, teams and texts late, but hey eventually all the good ones have to go...I hope!

But he did have one amazing play I will never forget, but the funny thing is, it should have been a pick, not a TD, so Favre doesn't deserve credit in my 4th greatest sports memory!
