Mine was the 1981 AFC Divisional Plaoff in Miami between the Dolphins and the San Diego Chargers on a warm, humid night when the super high-scoring Air Coryell Chargers jumped out to a 24-0 first quarter lead before Dolphin backup quarterback Don Strock entered the game and brought the Dolphins back to the minus side of a 41-38 overtime Charger victory.

Then next week, the Chargers were stonewalled in Cincinnati by a combination of the red-hot Bengals and a -59 degree wind-chill factor. And later that evening, I got to watch the 49er dynasty take shape when Joe Montana hit Dwight Clark in the end zone to defeat America's Team.

That Chargers Dolphins must have messed up NBC prime time that night?

The Pats had to cheat on that one by video taping the Rams practice before the Super Bowl, even with that, they barely won. The was the Pats first time for getting caught for cheating.

Gotta be Super Bowl III for me, was a Jets fan since they were the Titans and it was great watching the Jets legitimize the AFL. The cherry on top for the year was watching the Mets take the World Series.

That was the year that the three NYC major sports teams beat the Baltimore teams in the championship games. Pretty hard to take, but not as irritating for me as the 1979 World Series.

I always liked the bad weather games for reason, as you just never knew what would happen. It wasn't memorable for any other reason but I remember the Seahawks and Chiefs playing a game on Sunday night in 1998 in some of the worst rain that I've ever seen. At it's worst, all either team could do was run the ball up the middle and hope that the running back held onto the ball.

Steeler 13-10 win over the Ravens in Baltimore, on Sunday night football back in Dec 2010. Defense was front and center in that game, and it was a hard fought battle. Big Ben nose was even broken by Haloti Ngata big paws in that game. That was a old school classic, and will always be one of my favorite games ever.

That reminds me of that Miami/Pittsburgh prime-time (I think ESPN) game a few years back where the most memorable play was a punt that hit and stuck in the ground without bouncing.

Broncos vs Steelers in the wild card game a few years ago. Tebow to Demaryius for 80 yds for the win first play in overtime. That was the loudest sports bar I've ever been in.

Maybe Broncos vs Packers in the Super Bowl. Packers were very heavy favorites. It was a great game...for the Broncos.
