Frank Franklin II / AP
In a July 2004 game against the Yankee’s hated rivals, the Boston Red Sox, Derek Jeter covered a ton of ground to make a one-handed running catch in shallow left field. He had to run so hard to get there that he couldn’t stop himself before he flew into the stands. It’s one of the grittiest plays any modern athlete has made.

Twitter: @bcuban

Dallas Maverick’s owner Mark Cuban has a long and storied history of offending the NBA and its commissioner David Stern. He also, until 2011, had a long history of fielding teams with large payrolls who could never win when it counted. That all changed last year when the Mavericks beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals and Mark Cuban finally got to celebrate with the Larry O’Brien trophy. No picture has ever encapsulated an NBA owner the way this one encapsulates Cuban.

This is what it looks like when you achieve what every kid dreams of in his backyard. Down one run in the bottom of the 9th inning in the World Series, and you get up with men on and hit the Championship-clinching home run. As announcer Tom Cheek said that day, “Touch ‘em all, Joe.”

  With eight seconds remaining in Super Bowl XXV and his Bills trailing the Giants by only one point, Scott Norwood took the field to attempt a 47-yard field goal that would have made his team champions. He missed wide-right and his name became synonymous with choking in the big moment.

13. Carlton Fisk Waves A World Series Home Run Fair

Harry Cabluck / AP

In the 1975 World Series, with his Red Sox on the brink of elimination, Carlton Fisk hit a deep fly ball down the left field line in the bottom of the 12th inning. It looked as though it might go foul, but Fisk began waving his arms and (along with the prayers of Red Sox faithful) seemingly willed the ball to stay fair, sending the series to Game 7.
