Not that I'm shocked. Look at the choices, aren't they missing one?

Yes, CHC gives up eight runs after nobody on and two out in the 8th inning, blows a 3-1 advantage in the 2003 NLCS, and loses the NL Pennant to FLA!!:smile::D:

:rolleyes: Did you read the very end? The Sun-Times did not compile the list. They got it from Gannett, they are not in Chicago.

Anyway, most of the choices were not even lame, they were that weak.

They're missing quite a few, but it seems to be generally fair across the board, albeit a little college-biased.

For example, in 2007 they mentioned the Rockies 21-of-22 game winning streak and losing in the World Series, instead of giving Boston credit for winning the World Series that year.

The 2006 Cardinals aren't listed, nor are the 2003 Marlins.

I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I was glad that the Tribune picked Buehrle as the player of the decade in Chicago. Who cares about the rest of these lists.

One I think is missing is the 2001 World Series in NYC where the president threw the first pitch - for a strike. At that time, six weeks after 9/11, that seemed huge. I still get goosebumps when I read about it.

This video is also pretty good:

I guess I'm wondering what it is that I am missing here. What's not included here that should be?
