What Is Your Most Heartbreaking Sports Moment?
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Sports can be cruel when that opponent beats your favorite team with a last-second or a near-impossible shot. We have all been there with our favorite team. With no sports now, we all would take anything, even our least favorites one, to get a sporting fix in.
KSLSports.com’s Scott Mitchell really wants sports to be back just to be able to watch his favorite team one more time, win or lose. His most heartbreaking moment as a fan was the Michael Jordan push-off against Bryon Russell in the NBA Finals.
“When you get into these situations, and you don’t have what you normally have you appreciate it and would take anything. I would take the sadness of watching my team lose right now just so I could watch. I just want to watch one more game,” Mitchell said. “For me as a huge Utah Jazz fan, that Michael Jordan push-off was a crusher. If you are really a fan of your team you are with them all the time. When they lose you feel it and when they win you are euphoric over it.
“What was more crushing to me was when Karl Malone was in position before in the low post and was going to score, but Michael Jordan instead his guy he backtracks to steals the ball from Malone.”
Baseball Seems To Have The Most Heartache
There are plenty of responses that show how sports can be impactful in our lives, even when it is bad for you or your favorite team. It was surprising that Michael Jordan’s push-off was only submitted twice and that is the one we start off with.
It was surprising that there were multiple baseball submissions that caused heartbreak.
Others included college basketball and football, some NFL losses, and an NBA moment that caused pain.
