my Top 10 Sports achievements of the Decade

1) The Boston Red Sox win the ALCS after being down 0-3 to their arch-rivals the New York Yankees, go on to win their first World Series in 86 years
2) Lance Armstrong wins the Tour de France 7 straight times
3) Michael Phelps wins 8 gold medals at the 2008 Olympics
4) The New York Giants stop the New Englands Patriots' perfect season in Super Bowl XLII
5) The Texas Longhorns led by Vince Young beat behemoth USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl, the greatest college bowl game ever played.
6) Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O' Neal lead the L.A. Lakers to 3 straight NBA titles (one of which stolen from the Sacramento Kings by shady refs but whatevs)
7) S.F. Giants star Barry Bonds passes Hank Aaron's all-time Home Run record (also shady but hey I witnessed plenty of those dingers!)
8) Tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams dominate the decade in Grand Slam singles and doubles wins
9) George Mason University makes the 2006 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four as a #11 seed
10) The Fresno State Bulldogs Baseball team wins the 2008 College World Series in a historic underdog victory (the photo below is mine from the victory rally)
