      I was there at the Vet as a teenager to see that. Definitively would include it in my personal top ten.

      Dogs and horses surrounding the field, etc. We wanted to run out there but they shut us down! Top ten moment.

            How could you forget the Phils/Astros 1960

            Besides being the greatest 5 games series ever played in the history of beisbol, it had its great singular moments..........

            1. Did Vern Ruhle catch the ball for a triple play or was it a base hit in game 4?

            2. Game 5 Manny Trillo's triple.

            3. Game 5 Greg Gross. bunt single.

                Made up new curse words and lost my voice during the second one.

                    PART OF WHY THEY ASKED ME TO DO THEM EAGLES COMMERCIALS WAS BECAUSE THEY ASKED WHAT MY FAVORITE PLAY WAS.....AT THAT TIME...... IT WAS PEPPER JOHNSON GOES FLYIN FROM BYARS BURYING HIM. I KNOW IT WAS ONLY A BLOCK, BUT DAMN IT WAS A THING OF BEAUTY.

                    ALSO.....1974 STANLEY CUP......OT GOAL BOBBY CLARKE. THAT PASS BY COWBOY BILL FLETT WAS A THING OF BEAUTY.

                      That series taught me that life as a Philly sports fan was always going to be a wild roller coaster ride. Winning that series made it seem possible that they could actually win it all, and they did!

                        Gotta be top three for me Strip sack and last play failed Hail Mary are right up there.

                        Of course, the Eagles are the only Philly team I seriously follow. Other than the Eagles, I'd put AI stepping over Lue in the Finals on my list. And something from the Villanova / Georgetown game. Not that I was a Nova fan but a great upset.

                          My favorite non-Eagles moment ever. The loudest moment in Spectrum history (at the 1:15 mark):


                          (I was at the Genesis concert across the street. The entire scene in South Philly that night was amazing.)

                            Absolutely the greatest baseball series ever played. Game 5 was the greatest deciding game ever played.

                                OK, one from 1960

                                If youre old enough or know your Iggles history.

                                The last time we won the WORLDS FUCKING CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE NFL...........

                                Final play of the game. Jim Taylor alone in the middle of the field. Concrete Charlie left to beat. Charlie makes the tackle and refuses to let Taylor, whos flipping around like a grounded flounder, get back to his feet.

                                Time expires with Charlie still on top. Iggles win!
