From a nuetral perspective... The Ashes.

The Ashes.

followed closely by Liverpool winning the Champions League

Norwich's relegation

David Nalbandian's defeat of Roger Federer

and of course, Ipswich's tendency to just throw it all away.

Those were actually two of the best moments. In fact, Australia losing to Bangladesh is one of my favourite moments in cricket's entire history. Absolutely bloody awesome - and hilarious.

My list of the best:
1. New Zealand owning at the rugby (Lions tour, Tri-Nations, Bledisloe, Grand Slam).
2. New Zealand setting the world record for the highest successful one day cricket run chase - and against Australia, no less!
3. Australia losing to Bangladesh.
4. Australia losing the Ashes.
5. Australia just plain sucking at rugby union.

What an awesome year for sport.

Obsessed with them failing miserably.

Merry Christmas, Australia!

Fuck Inter. I Bianconeri sono i tutti.

1. The Philadelphia Eagles winning the NFC Championship.
2. Going to my first professional sporting event - Philadelphia Phillies vs. Cincinnati Reds, May 13, 2005 at Citizens Bank Park.
3. Liverpool winning the Champions League while I was sick at home.
4. Team Canada winning the World Junior Hockey Championship after 7 years of heartbreak.
5. Team Canada winning the World Cup of Hockey.
6. Team Canada winning the gold medal at the Torino Olympics (yeah, I know, 2006, but it's close enough. )

Personally, I loved it when the Aussies were beaten by Bangladesh. Sure it was embarrasing, but made for great conversation!

Losing the Ashes may be the greatest gift Ponting could get as a captain, he will learn a lot from it (especially when he chose to bowl at Edgbaston).

I think we're all forgetting the horse that brang U2 to Australia - Makybe Dive. What a mare. Three Melbourne Cup wins in a row, the most recent perhaps the most spectacular.

Also add the most entertaining F1 season for years, and my beloved Geelong getting jibbed in the semi-final.

And then there was the almighty BATHURST 1000 - Skaife won his fifth and Holden 7 on the trot. I had an awesome weekend.

in no particular order... if i think of more i'll add 'em

-watching a kid that i've coached and known since he was in 5th grade play his first college basketball game

-the mets trading for carlos delgado

-tiki barber's 200+ yard game vs. the chiefs

-for probably the first time since the mid 80s the teams i root for are populated with young futre superstars... david wright, jose reyes, eli manning, jeremy shockey, osi umenyora, channing frye, nate robinson... this may not be much to some, but we don't get to see young players get a chance in new york too often... we normaly just get washed up former stars.

-going to the giants "at" saints game

-sitting at shea stadium watching dae sung koo hit a double off of randy johnson, and then watching him score from second on a blooper to the outfield... top quality unintentional comedy... and to top it off i went to see u2 at madison square garden later that night

-going to see duke play at the garden

-getting to see pedro martinez pitch... for my home team, none the less

-winning a nice chunk of change off the patriots winning another super bowl
