    They're professional athletes because they're good at what they do. But no-one remembers the good.

    Lol the Americans and Canadians love to take credit for things they didn't invent like American Football which is just rugby, Baseball is just Rounders, Ice Hockey is just Hockey, 'Soccer' (🤮) is football and u didn't even create Basketball, some Scottish bloke did

    Excuse me. Most shocking mistkes of maybe the last 35 years. Look up Fred Merkle. His boner in 1908 cost the NY Giants the NL pennant and led to the Chicago Cubs last championship until 2016.

    I've been a cubs fan since way before bartman. But it was a huge overreaction by the Cubs organization and the fan base. I'm happy that they now gave him a ring after they won the World Series.

    What about Liverpool’s two fuck ups during the 2013/2014 season? Gerrard’s slip is the most famous but them bottling a 3-0 lead against Crystal Palace was the worst.

    I have a quote from a retired MLB umpire who agrees that Galarraga did bobble the ball. Galarraga was not situated on the base, he was moving and not in control of his body, so he has to have the ball secured in his glove, not just in his glove.

    Brandon Bostick in the NFC title game should be on here too. If he does his job, Jordy Nelson gets a free grab at the football, all that would have been left was too run out the clock. Still hurts too this day too even think about.

    I think who atleast deserves an honorable mention is Oliver Kahn in the World Cup Final in 2002. He was the reason for why an average german national team with a few standout players reached the world cup final against Brazil, only for fumbling a straight up shot from Rivaldo that gave Ronaldo the chance for the 1-0. He still got the award for best player, but losing the world cup in that fashion is very frustrating.

    surprised that Nelsons Cruz's unnecessary jump attempt to catch a ball in the outfield when the Rangers were one strike away from winning the world series didnt make the list. the coward jumped ship and changed teams after that year which cemented him as a hated figure in the Texas Rangers organization

    as for bartman im a cubs fan. and im not mad at bartman I would've done the same thing. and so would've like 20 others that was reaching for the ball. and im more pissed at the errors that followed and the lead they blew in games and in that game.

    Now I’m not gonna say the usual how Ramos gave karius a concussion but rather it was the refs fault benzema stuck his foot out preventing karius from putting the ball back into play which is against the laws of the game in soccer or football
