I'm counting just ones that I personally attended

1) Treadwell's kick against UGA in '87
2) sitting on the 17th green at Augusta in '86 when Nicklaus birdied to take the lead
3) Catching a Dale Murphy homer at Fulton County Stadium roughly 1988

Mine are all Clemson related - I'll leave it to games I actually attended

1-Seeing Clemson dismantle Oklahoma in the 2015 CFP - Orange Bowl

2-Beating Notre Dame when it was only raining on their side of the field in DV was sweet. The look on Brian Kelly's face when he saw 82k strong in a torentrual downpour was worth the price of admission

3-Probably have to go with The Puntrooski game we lost against FSU in 88' I was sitting in the top row of the South Upper Deck in the rain that day. Sad we lost, but a very memorable game for me as a 12 yr old youngin'


* Honorable mention - Clemson/Oral Roberts Super Regional when Tyler Colvin hit a grandslam to seal the deal. Great day of baseball!

** I was also in attendance at the 03' 63-17 thrashing of Coots in Willy B. Actually sat solo in the coot student section. Good times.

*** That 2003 Peach Bowl thrashing of #6 Tennessee was also sweet.

Lol, I'll stop now!

1- watching my son pitch in the LLWS qualifying tournement,I was in center field watching and called it high and inside. Kid never moved at the plate, cracked his helmet and knocked it to the dirt. the England team had rules where they played if you hit a kid you got pulled so they just stood there hoping to get the pitcher pulled. Not the same rules and after a 10 minute arguement, the Umpire called my kid back out to throw a couple warmups, 5 straight fastballs for strikes, looked over at the England coach and said play ball.NEVER fazed him even a little bit. FInished the game on the mercy rule with a chopper back to my son on the mound for a double play.

2- watching my son pitch in the LLWS in Williamsport,Pa.

3- Coming in 1st overall in AMA Motocross 125cc class for the 1st time in 1974.

noodle arm not throw out Sid Bream at the plate. Remember that game like it was yesterday. Was actually supposed to go to that game, but it fell through at the last moment.

Can't say as a 3 yr old I'd have liked to see TD23 score 4 TD'S in Pee-Wee football, although I'm sure it was impressive!

USSR, Treadwell kick to beat Georgia in Athens I guess it was '86, and Chris Michael jumper to bead UNC in mid-80's. Clemson's first soccer championship in '84 is also close, as is Lorenzon Charles dunk to win championship (Dad is State grad).

Reggie Oliver screen pass to Terry Gardner for a game winning TD, with no time left on the clock. 1971 home opener, come from behind win over Xavier. First win after the 1970 plane crash. Everyone had tears in their eyes and didn't leave the stands until the team came back onto the field.

97 yds Mark Fellers to Craig Brantley, in a home win vs VA 28-9. On 11-16-74. Anyone else remember that one ?

While in HS, our son scoring a match winning goal from about 40 yds out. You could hear it screaming thru the air, and see some wicked movement.

I think that's the one I remember Jim Phillips saying, Brantly's split wide left", and then almost whispering," and nobody's covering him!"


Hey bud, I don't know anything about this..

3. Being named starting CF as a sophomore in hs on the second day of tryouts
2. Winning 1st place in a school long distance run, which I had no intention of trying to win until I was on the last lap and realized I had most of my energy left.
1. Early Sept. 1992, FSU @ Clemson. Me and my buddies painted Go Clemson, even though we lost 24-18, it was when I fell in love with Clemson FB.

Great topic!

Personal...

1. When my son's cross country team won GA state in 2010
2. My little league team won the county, and Micky Mantle gave us our trophies, Fort Mill, SC, 1970
3. Tigers ending the 5 streak with scar, and ACC won all its SEC games that day, good feeling!

Wow, what are the odds for both a parent and their child to both hit holes in one? Pretty cool.

With me the odds are not too good. With her, they were pretty good. She owns all of the golf records at her high school. Her longest drive I have measured (by laser, on level ground, no hard pan, no wind) was 283 yds.
