    I'm not real familiar with all the ones you listed but sadly I gotta go with my Yankees, just embarrassing. Just given the whole situation and how it all went down, it's really a no brainer. But I'm over it now.

    I'm a huge AC Milan fan and I have to say that when Liverpool beat us, I felt horrible.

    Yankees 04 for sure... One of the only times Mariano didn't seal the deal... and they had home games... and its never been done before... and it was the red sox and yankees... and it broke the curse... (i can keep going)

    This is a close second in my book. 35-3 lead is blown. It's amazing to watch the replay of that game... and see what the players used to get away with. Sadly... they got away with it all against the oilers. (Running out of bounds and back in bounds and catching a 60 yard pass and the refs don't say a thing about it, is only one example.) Who knows, if the oilers win that game, and win the next one, maybe they never move to Nashville?

    I'd have to say it wasn't us in 2000 or 2008, simply because no one other than us was watching. The Yankees let the world down when Boston took the title.

    there are 3 huge ones imo & I'm having a hard time deciding between the 3:

    Van de Velde (watching that on youtube is straight brutal), Yankees & '99 European Ryder Cup Team (4 point lead for the Europeans, heading into the final day - 10-6 - only to lose 14.5 - 13.5)
