Well since you put the Chris Weber Timeout, how about an apology from the refs in that game for not calling traveling on Weber about 20 seconds before he called the timeout as he walked in plain view of the refs, the thousands in attendance and millions watching on tv.
How about an apology from the Russians for stealing the Olympic gold from the USA in men's basketball in 1972? The American players still refuse to accept their silver medals because they know they deserve the gold.
Isiah Thomas, for creating the worst team, dollar for dollar, in the history of pro sports...And in the process, handcuffing the Knicks organization to a bunch of longterm, overinflated contracts until 2009. Nicely done!
I would like to see Emerson Fitipalid apologize for drinking orange juice in victory lane at the 1993 Indy 500 instead of the customary bottle of milk. Nowhere in sports is tradition more prevelant and part of the event than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the running of the Indy 500. It was not the place nor the time to plug your investment in the OJ industry. If you don't want to take part in the tradition of the event, either don't win, or better yet, don't race there. The Hulman family should have started a new tradtion that day. If you don't drink the milk, you are awarded last place with last place payout.
Just a thought about #9: "The NHL, for taking teams out of Canada and for putting teams in places like Phoenix and Columbus." Hello, have you even been to Phoenix? Do you know anything about the area or the people? There are a lot of transplants... usually from the Upper Midwest and the Great Lakes regions... people like myself... from Minnesota that now live in the Phoenix area! Oh, wait, I forgot... no reason to put a hockey team in the desert. I gave up all the sports I used to like in Minnesota as soon as I got here. Fishing, baseball, football, basketball, and or course hockey So, everyone else must have done the same thing!
An apology from the Sports media (including SI) for winking / turning the head at the apparent substance ehancement in Baseball and football while at the same time putting so much emphasis on Marijuana usage in sports.
The NCAA for allowing mediocre Notre Dame teams play in major bowl games based solely on ND's reputation. Shawne Merriman for being a juiced up jerk who thinks he knows Japanese. LaDainian Tomlinson for flipping out over the Pats making fun of Merriman's ridiculous dance. The University of Notre Dame football team for being the most overrated college football program in the history of the universe. The NHL for existing. The San Diego Chargers for somehow making their uniforms look WORSE as time goes on. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers for those hideous creamsicle jerseys. Every NFL team that's released an all-orange jersey. The New York Yankee fans for whining about NOT winning the World Series every year (and taking their frustrations out on A-Rod). Terrel Owens, for every time he's ever opened his mouth.
How about every Boston Red Soxs fan apologizing to Buckner. As if his life hasnt been hell because of that, it was a complete accident. Not a dumb play, just an unlucky one. No one deserves as much crap as Buckner has received, now I want an apology from cnnsi for putting him on this list.
Canadien sports fans: For continually and openly insulting America. Clearly Canada doesn't have what it takes to support NHL Hockey. Without cities like Dallas, Phoenix, and Other great Southern Cities, pro hockey would already be a footnote in Sports History. Show some class and be grateful.
An apology from Gary Bettman for allowing the 98-99 Stanley Cup to end on a goal that based on the rules should not have been allowed ! He just didnt have the nerve to tell the Stars to get back to the bench and continue the game
ESPN's hiring of Rush Limbaugh.. ESPN's firing of Harold Reynolds.. Football Hall of Fame for not enshrining Ray Guy: the greatest Punter of all-time. Baseball Hall of Fame for the deletion of Andre Dawson..A Great Baseball Player! NHL for allowing players to deliberately fight and hurt players. NY Giants and NY Knicks for allowing the present coaches to coach!
college football for not having a playoff. the chicago cubs for letting one steve bartman take the blame for them blowing the series when they had leads in the last two games of the NLCS. Durham county for letting the Duke lacrosse case go as far as did.
Lawrence Taylor (as much as I respect him) for taking out Joe Montana in the NFC Final, thus preventing a Superbowl 3-peat. And while we're on the topic: Whoever that chump was that injured Steve Young on a permanent basis, thus preventing another Niner repeat and a unprecedented 6th Superbowl.
