As 2008 winds down, here at 4th and Fail, like everywhere else, reflect on the year that was. We'll start off with the Top Plays of 2008.
11. (Honestly, who makes a list with 11 items?). Alexander Ovechkin's sick goal falling down
10. Mario Chalmers' three-pointer in the NCAA championship game.
9. Michael Phelps' one one-hundredth of a second win in the 100-meter butterfly.
8. Usain Bolt's record-breaking sprint in the 100-meter dash.
7. Knowshon Moreno goes airborne against Central Michigan.
6. Graham Harrell to Michael Crabtree against Texas.
5. Tiger Woods forces a playoff in the U.S. Open
4. Manning to Tyree: The Catch, The Play, whatever you want to call it. We call it Amazing.
3. Dwight Howard in the dunk contest. We couldn't pick just one, so we give you all of his dunks from the night that saved the dunk contest.
2. Hakeem Nicks and his behind the back catch against West Virginia.
1. Philip Lutzenkirchen's riSICKulous play in the back of the endzone. Where I come from, we call this, "the Greatest."
The music is fitting, as this play truly was second to none in 2008.
