If you missed it, we debuted our #WNSTSweet16 discussion topics last week-fittingly-by looking over the greatest debuts in local sports history.
We’re celebrating 16 years as being Baltimore’s local sports media leader here at WNST, and every week we’re attempting to make the definitive list when it comes to a particular “water cooler” topic in Charm City sports history.
In the middle of the NFL Playoffs, it seems fitting that in our second week we look back over some of the all-time great postseason moments in area sports history. In fact, that’s the title this week-“Sweet 16 Best Local Sports Playoff Moments.”
So how does Jeff Reboulet’s home run in ’97 stack up against the 1958 NFL Championship Game? What about Drew Nicholas’ shot to beat UNC-Wilmington in the NCAA Tournament vs. Ray Lewis taking the ball off of Eddie George’s hands and running it back to lead the Ravens past the Titans in Nashville? Or Johns Hopkins miraculously winning a face-off and scoring the game-tying goal in just 12 seconds against Virginia in 2005 or even Joe Saunders pitching the Birds past the Rangers in a one-game playoff in 2012?
Luke Jones is in charge of making our “official” list this week and is looking for your feedback. What postseason moments might we not be thinking about? A high school playoff moment? Something from the Baltimore Clippers/Skipjacks/Blast/Stallions/Stars? Maybe something involving a lesser sport at one of the area colleges? Or even another O’s/Colts/Ravens/Bullets moment not listed above?
He also wants to know how you’d rank these moments as he makes the list. If you think one DEFINITELY has to be above another, let him know. You can tell him here in the comments, via email firstname.lastname@example.org, @WNST or @BaltimoreLuke on Twitter or via Facebook.
We’ll be discussing this topic throughout the day Monday on AM1570 WNST.net. We encourage you to get in on the conversation by using the hashtag #WNSTSweet16. On Tuesday morning, Luke will officially unveil his list here at WNST.net and then discuss it with Drew Forrester at 8am on “The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction” on WNST. Luke will check back in with me at 4pm on “The Reality Check Driven By Jerry’s Toyota Scion” so that I can
tell him what he got wrong share my thoughts as well.
We’re enjoying the playoffs, even if they don’t involve the Ravens this time around. Sunday was the one year mark of one of the greatest playoff moments in Ravens history. How do these moments rank? Time for you to tell us.
