My Pick for the Top Sports Moments of 2008

#9: Wimbledon Final: Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nader

The best tennis match ever played! (ha! None of you have seen me and my buddy Dan play Wii Tennis at 5 a.m.!)

Oh who am I trying to kid? Anyone who is not a tennis fan is thinking the same thing that I am….so what? How exciting could it have been. Sure it could be the best but it’s still a tennis match, the most boring thing to watch on t.v. Hmm…It’s kinda like watching my cat watch birds fly by outside without the “Ugh! Whap. Ugh! Whap. Ugh! Whap.” noises.

But the match is on every list I’ve read. And there was one particular quote that really jumped out at me.

“How epic was this four hour and 48 minute marathon? When it was finally over, England’s power grid suffered from a massive spike in demand for electricity.  A spokesperson said fans were “so transfixed by the tennis, they could not move from the sofa to switch the lights on until the end.” Indeed, none other than John McEnroe, a four time champion, called it the greatest match he’d ever seen. Few would argue the sentiment.” ~TSN.Com

I guess I should clarify: I am not electing the actual sports moment to my list, I’m electing that quote!
