Why do we watch sports? Sometimes, when our team has fallen apart and our favorite players have come up short, it's a tough, even impossible question to answer. But sometimes, when everything comes together perfectly and a lifetime's work pays off, we remember. In a year filled with tragedy and controversy, we've taken a few moments to celebrate all that was good and uplifting in sports. From Fenway Park to Augusta National, from Centre Court at Wimbledon to Jordan-Hare Stadium in Alabama, these are the most powerful images and events from the year just past. Enjoy as you remember why you watch.
