  1. I think the narrator did a great job reading out loud for the first time, how about you?

    And Christ pal, learn the pronunciation before you do the fucking video. Elly Manning? Holy crap.

  2. I don't know what is worse…the list or how this guy pronounces names and how he knows so little about the stuff on his own list. This isn't the first video that has made me cringe so hard due to how he pronounces everything.

  3. Ok time to fix mistakes here. Lynn Swan efforts in Super Bowl X won him the game's MVP not the season's. Also SB X took place after the new year in 1976. Also he pronounce Nadia Comaneci wrong. Also he pronounce Eli Manning's name wrong. Pigsburg stealers?

  4. 4:30 This one can be seen on you tube as well. The marching band entered the field before the game was actually over to celibate their win. It reminded me of the line in American Pie (the song) that goes "The players tried to take the field, but the marching band refused to yield."

  5. 9:48 If you have ever seen the "live" reaction to this score it is really amazing. Everyone knew she had done well but the judges didn't have the ability to display a score of "10" so they displayed her score as "1.0". People started booing and her team looked horrified at the injustice of getting 1 for such a performance before they realized what her score really was.

  6. Why does everyone get mad that soccer wasn't every single one? Soccer (at least professionally) is for pussies because they literally practice being bitches so they can get penalties called and everyone knows it too so just stfu

  7. This is BY FAR the worst list ever done, I honestly feel this video needs to either be taken down and re-made or just taken down… Or taken down and edited to all American then called top 25 AMERICAN sports plays. Because most of the largest world sports arent represented once in this… The largest world sport (Football/Soccer) has 2 moments, both about the same player in the same match… and that isnt even the most memorable match in Football history… That shows A LOT of how bad this video is. I am biased but nowhere near as biased as this videos Makers… Literally 20 of those moments will only be known of AT ALL by American sports fans. You need to put in WORLD sports… E.G. The Olympic games… Nothing on Usian Bolt, Nothing on that quite special David Rudisha 800M world record…. Nothing on the guy that invented the High jump backwards technique….. Nothing on Extreme sports OR winter sports… E.g. the first wing suit. The best downhill snowboard run…. These all recognised world wide…Maybe we dont know who did it but i don't know one person who hasnt at least caught a glimpse of these things on T.V…. The world cup…. 

    I'm Half British and Half Madeiran (portuguese) And almost everybody i know on both mainland and offland europe/asia (most of the world doesnt either give a shit or have a clue about Baseball or American Football… The VERY FEW who do are normally the guys that are total idiots. Swag faging it up and trying to be different. The biggest sports across Asia , Europe and south America (Over 80% of the worlds population) Watch a lot of Racket and Bat sports e.g. Table Tennis, Cricket, Tennis, Squash, Badminton. Then there is the BY FAR biggest world sport Football (soccer) Then there is pretty much any other Summer olympic sport which MANY more people care about than even the biggest American made sports.

    This video is equivalent to a British or Australian person Making a video full of moments in Cricket, Rugby, Aussie rules Rugby with a bit of Football. How would Americans feel about that? To be honest If you were to take all time sports top 25 or 250 moments voted for by the world there wouldn't be a Baseball or American football moments in any of those lists… Maybe one or two basketball. That really is it.
