The Thrill Of Victory! A Breakdown Of Celebrating My Teams (Mets, Steelers, Celtics, Islanders and Hoyas) Biggest Wins
Manage episode 258589226 series 2308608
Going down a different sports path on Episode 123, as I share my experience of the few thrills that my teams have accomplished over the years winning a championship. Whether you’re a fan of the teams I root for, or not, I’m sure those who know what it feels like to reach the mountaintop can surely relate. On deck:
(4:28) My early memories of rooting for the Georgetown Hoyas college basketball team, as they were champions in 1984.
(10:25) The New York Islanders record setting dominance of the early 1980’s, winning four Stanley Cups along the way.
(17:07) The Boston Celtics halcyon days of the 1980’s, sandwiched by the 2008 championship team. One of my biggest regrets and confession comes from watching the NBA Finals of that year. You won’t want to miss that.
(26:45) The Pittsburgh Steelers capping off four Super Bowl victories in the 1970’s, to the improbable and historic run to winning Super Bowl XL (which was anti-climatic…you have to hear for yourself) concluding with what I call, ‘The Gift That Keeps On Giving’ as the Steelers win Super Bowl XLIII.
(37:35) My first love, the New York Mets as 1986 is the only season I can hang my hat on, despite a couple of World Series runs that fell short. They did provide a thrill of a lifetime as I look back at where I was and how I was ready to burst into sad tears when there were two outs in the bottom of the 10th in Game 6 of the ‘86 World Series.
I hope you enjoy listening to my thoughts and experience of what it was like to witness world championships as it evokes memories of the teams you root for and what it meant to you at that time.
