Some of you may remember a post from last week where I was reveling in, what I considered to be, my best sports day ever. A day at the stadium, all of my favorite teams winning, who could ask for anything more?
Well, it looks like I asked for too much, and the sports gods needed to recoup their kindness by sending some frustration my way. This frustration took form in the NJ Devils who lost by giving up 2 goals in the last 80 seconds of game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals… Sitting in my seat at the Prudential Center, silent and hoarse from screaming all game, I couldn’t help but think that I went from my best sporting experience to, what currently feels like, my worst sporting experience.
While I could rant for hours about how I now hate all sports, especially hockey, and how the sports gods have cursed me in recent years with the most frustrating teams to watch, I’ve decided to go a different route. Consider this the “Worst Sports Day Ever” thread. What is one day/sporting event in your past that haunts you to this day? What day would you like to eliminate from the history books to save you the constant pain and anguish you feel from it? Again, like the Best Sports Day thread, it doesn’t have to be specifically Niners related, but it most certainly can be (and I’m sure you’ll get some empathizers among the nation if it is about our Red and Gold).
Ugh… I can’t even watch Sportscenter the day after something like this…
