    Senior doesn’t get the credit he deserves as he was a really good player.

    Only father son duo to hit home runs in the same MLB game. Likely to never happen again.

    Jr's game winning hit in the 95 ALDS win.

    Edgar got the hit Junior scored the winning run.
    That’s the fastest I’ve ever seen him run, and he “cut the bases” perfectly.

    Still my favorite Seahawk hit and what has to be the most gratifying.

  • I was at game 7 of the Western Conference Finals vs. Utah. As loud as any sporting event I've been to, including all 3 NFC Championship home games.
    Was at the 1 game playoff vs. the Angels, great game.
    But being at Game 5 vs. the Spankees, and seeing the double go in the corner was an amazing experience. We were up the left field upper corner so we were looking down at it and could see it all unfold pretty well. Hugging people I never met, people falling all over each other going nuts. What a moment for a team that waited their entire existence at that point to have a moment like that.

  • Saw a 20yr old Kerry Wood strike out 20 Astro's in 9.
    The stuff he had was unreal..98-99 mph heater with
    a deadly 12-6 curve(best I ever saw) That Astro lineup
    was loaded big time.

    I know your age is close to mine, the Angels with Nolan Ryan and Frank Tanana was scary, especially when they would go 9 and just keep getting better and faster, both were at about 115 to 120 at some points.

  • Was fortunately enough to see Felix' perfect game too. What started as just another afternoon 9 inning lunch at the Safe turned into history. Funny thing was that I knew he had the no hitter going, but I didn't hit me that he had a perfect game til the 7th inning. I remember the last 3 outs, my hands were literally shaking. What a cool moment for an absolute legend in Seattle. Such a shame he never got to experience playoff success.

  • Here are a few:

    Beastquake

    Cal Ripken Jr. breaking Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games record

    The U.S. beating the Soviets in the Miracle on Ice game (it was such a big deal that I can’t even remember off the top of my head which team they beat after that game to actually win the gold medal)

    Finland, off the top of my head. Hard to top that as number one.

    And yeah, all those moments and Largent's hit were awesome.

  • Percy taking that kickoff back deserves mention.

    I started to celebrate as I knew damn well the broncos had no chance.

    Edit: just re-read the title.

    Seahawks related I'll take beast quake 2.0.

    Larry bird going off on Chuck person in 96 was fun to watch

  • Speaking of the Percy SB touchdown (even though it's a championship moment) We had about 25 people at our place for a SB party etc. Right before the 2nd half kickoff, we were saying to each other "if he runs this back, this game is over" Then of course he did. I then jumped on the ground and did some snow angels til my arms started burning.

  • Beastquake is exceptional to watch to this day. I don't know if there is a better run in NFL history.

    I think one of my favorite moments in recent history was the final few minutes of the 2011 MLB regular season when Boston lost to lowly Baltimore in the bottom of the ninth and Tampa Bay came down from 7 runs down in the 8th to beat the Yankees in extras and grab the wild card spot. Boston had come into September with a 9 game lead and went 7-20 that month.

    It was an epic ride the last few days of the season and I remember running around my apartment losing my marbles.

    UMBC beating Virginia was pretty epic as well.
