We’ve all got three or four sports memories that are engrained so deeply into our hearts and minds that we’ll never forget them for as long as we live. You’re probably picturing a few right now, am I right?
Top fan moments from the FANCHEST team?
- Seeing a recently un-retired Michael Jordan in-person as he hit a last second shot against the Atlanta Hawks back in 1995. Most high-fives I have ever given out in my life!
- Watching Endy Chaves of the Mets rob a homer in game 7 of the 2006 NLCS, only to then watch Carlos Beltran freeze on a strike 3 call on an 0-2 count.
Check out some awesome FAN Moments below and share with us your favorite fan moment. Tweet or IG at us @theFANCHEST and hashtag #Myfanmoment- and maybe we’ll even re-tweet or re-post for you (or you may win our weekly My Fan Moment Giveaway)!
- UFC fight fans are full of passion. Yet, Irish fans who worship Conor McGregor take over entire stadiums when their guy is on the fight card.
- This lucky fan got tackled by LeBron James after he hit a half-court shot to win $75,000. Not a bad night. Dude probably got contacted by some personal injury lawyers after the tackle though.
- It appeared for at least half the game that this Patriots fan got all dressed up like an idiot for nothing. Until Tom Brady sold his soul at halftime and ended up winning Super Bowl 51 by being ahead on points for zero seconds during the game.
- Reports in Chicago were that many souls let go of their earthly bodies right after the World Series victory parade. Those Cubs fans had held onto life just long enough to see history made.
- Some fan moments are devastating. Just look at the despair on Jazz fans’ faces as MJ goes out like a titan. But the little kid with Bulls colors on is ready to jump through the roof.
- This is not a good idea, even by Cleveland standards! I get it. You all were excited about LeBron bringing a title back to your “city.” But don’t go all Spiderman on us. It was just a parade.
- Fan moments like the one below make every bad sports story worth the trouble. Check out the young man who was knocked from his wheelchair and then saved from a court-rushing crowd after a big basketball win. C.J. Leslie picked his team up with a monster game, then picked up this fallen fan. That’s what our sports heroes are supposed to do, literally and figuratively.
