    @ERTGW2005 // Ami 336 Kirby 909 except the knights were fucked over by refereeing with a call so bad it singlehandedly led to ruling on all majors being reviewable. The lightning just disintegrated while being healthy and having no zebra issues, or any kind of problems.

    I think the Yankees '04 collapse outranks the Cubs debacle in 2003.

  • Larry Drozd  21 days ago

    @Jennifer Cunningham Oh yeah....after coming back against the Yankee's like that....they were unbeatable after that!!

  • Larry Drozd  21 days ago

    @Jennifer Cunningham I'll never forgive the Cubs, and those fans, for what they did to poor Steve Bartman. Never mind the fact that he turned out to be a real class act. It was nice they finally won a world series....but...I didn't even watch a single game.

    The 2004 Yankees is #1 by far.
