Oh yeah! Kevin Conolly's narration is grating, but that story is [expletive] AMAZING.


I was in a hotel room, just looking for some mindless nonsense tv, and caught like 15min of the middle of that at like 1am...and I was too tired to stay awake for it, but first thing I did when I got home was find it on Netflix. Just a ridiculously entertaining story. Can you imagine how huge that story would be if it'd happened in the internet age?

Yeah, one of the best, plus most of the "Soccer Stories" shorts they've done have been pretty fun, too.

Oh God, I had no idea they had made one about that. Violence on TV or movies usually doesn't bother me, but even just reading the description of what happened to him makes me feel woozy.

It's the only time I can remember that I had the "blood running cold" sensation. It's a [expletive] snuff film only the guy survives

Malarchuk's life was saved due to quick action by the team's athletic trainer, Jim Pizzutelli, a former Army medic who served in Vietnam. He gripped Malarchuk's neck and pinched off the blood vessel, not letting go until doctors arrived to begin stabilizing the wound.


That's grim, but kind of amazing at the same time. I suspect they don't teach you that stuff in sports medicine classes. Lucky that guy had a Vietnam medic at his side.

Yeah, it sounds like from Logan's post that if the trainer didn't know what to do as a medic the guy likely would have died.

It's gruesome as [expletive]. In the video, the blood is pumping out of his neck with each heart beat, but it looks like a gallon at a time

Jordan's steal, then shot over Malone. Whole play was a great way to cap his career as a Bull.

Ingram steal, Deron's three. Who knew that would basically be the last good thing to happen to illinois basketball in a decade?

Aramis Ramirez's grand slam that put us up 3-1 with Z, Wood, and Prior going. Thought we were going to the World Series for sure.

Schwarber's dong into the Allegheny.

OU going up 28-0 after 5 minutes against Nebraska in 2008. OU picked off a bubble screen pass to get there.

The Roy Williams "Superman" play against Chris Simms and Texas in 2001.

Most of the best ones have already been said.

Paxson in 93 may be my favorite, but also Jordan over Ehlo, Jordan over Russell, Jordan dunk on Ewing and scream, Hester Superbowl opening kickoff, Sosa off of Urbina, Kerry Wood's last pitch in 20K game are all up there.

But I gotta throw in a couple:

Christian Watford
Keith Smart shot
Flutie Hail Mary


And to give some love to Indiana high school basketball, my senior year Jaraan Cornell (future Purdue star) hit the game-winning shot as a Freshman to win the state championship (to beat Bryce Drew, who was on the winning end of a memorable shot in the NCAA tourney for Valpo). Cornell went to a rival HS of mine, but everyone in the city was rooting for them and I grew up with a few players on that team. I was at every game of their title run, and it was fun to watch.

Oh, I started my post intending to put Marshall's hit. And I forgot. I had a conversation on Twitter with Otis Wilson about that hit a few years ago, and he said it was one of the highlights of his entire career.
