I have to say last nights World Series Game 6 now takes the #1 spot as my most heartbreaking loss. I am not going to relive the details again as I am sure by now all of you know what happened either from Sportscenter or if you stayed up till 12:45 in the a.m. (I am on the east coast) like I did because you are a Rangers fan and wanted to watch them clinch their first ever World Series. I am not even angry at how little sleep I got last night because how late the game went, I would have been angry at myself if I had not stayed up to watch the game. Even as a Rangers fan, that still is the most exciting baseball game I have ever seen in my entire life and I attended Nolan Ryan's 7th no-hitter. There is no way I could have slept with all the adrenaline I had going through my body during the 9th, 10th, and 11th innings.
So this morning got me thinking about, what your most heartbreaking loss as a sports fan is? I know we are all Longhorns fans, but it does not have to be a Longhorns game, it can be any game, I know everybody on here does not root for all the same teams with the exception of the Longhorns. I am 30, so I am to young to remember the 1983 Cotton Bowl game against Georgia (I have heard this game mentioned many times amongst Longhorn fans as their most heartbreaking loss). As rough as the 2009 National Championship game against Alabama was, I consider it more on an annoyance because I feel we will never really know what could have happened if Colt did not get hurt.
Before last night my most heartbreaking loss as a fan, was in 1993 Cowboys vs. Dolphins Thanksgiving and Leon Lett, I was in the 7th grade and that game absolutely devastated me, thankfully the Cowboys went on to win the Super bowl that season, but at the time it was absolutely gut wrenching, and of course the 2001 Big 12 Championship game against Colorado ranks right up there and of course 2008 vs. Tech. But last nights Game 6 is now my #1 most heartbreaking loss.
So sports fans, what is your all-time most heartbreaking loss?
