Greatest Sports moments in history.Round 2.......

Posted on: July 9, 2009 8:25 am
 


There once was 64 and now there is 32. We are at the second round of voting for the Greatest Sports moments in History. Should be easier to pick your favorites this time around and I hope you find one of yours. Thank for popping in and placing your votes, because for once you can actually say this is a democracy. 100% well of course unless there is a tie. The voting was very close in a few and had to be decided by the tie breaker, I assigned a number to each one and then the TIE BREAKER of the Giants Victory decided it. I will have another tie breaker on this round. Please enjoy the voting and hopefully a little history too.
