8. The Decision and the Derision. Did you hear LeBron James switched basketball teams? No? Well, we have news. LeBron James plays center for the Minnesota Timberwolves!
7. The Canada-USA Olympic Overtime. Our hockey-crazed in-law Josh is going to be irritated that this game isn't higher on the list, since he flew last-minute from Jersey to Vancouver just to be at this game (though Josh also got to see Avril Lavigne sing at the closing ceremonies.) An extraordinary thriller, not only for its finish (a last-minute tying goal by the U.S.; an OT goal by Canadian superhero Sidney Crosby) but also for the insane pressure on the host Olympic country. Had Canada lost, Vancouver might have melted, and Josh would have had to walk home.
6.5 Alex Rodriguez's 600th Home Run. Just fooling! You forgot this piece of sports history an hour after it happened. Sad but true: The Phillies fan who got tasered and the Jets coach who tripped a Dolphin made for bigger moments.
