Top 5 worst sports moments of 2010 in Detroit
Detroit, Michigan, loves its sports, but they get a lot of disappointment from their teams at times. The top 5 worst sports moments each year seem to be an easy thing to come up with, especially with the help of the Detroit Lions, their National Football League team. This year though the Lions put some heart into their playing but they have still had their share of big mistakes. They are not the only team from Detroit featured on this list though. For the rest of Detroit's teams it is usually someone being robbed of some great right that puts them on the worst moments list.
Detroit Tigers baseball player Armando Galarraga was on the road to the perfect game, he would have been the 21st pitcher to ever throw a perfect game when he was robbed of this prestigious title by a blown call by umpire Jim Joyce. This unreal event still has Tigers fans talking, and angry.
2010 marks the year when Jason Hanson(notes) became the most "losingest" NFL player ever, all because of playing with the Detroit Lions. On a positive note, kicker Hanson was awarded the Ed Block Courage Award for overcoming an injury or adversity. He is the longest tenured Lions player. He deserves more than one award for sticking with them all of these years.
Detroit Lions Alvin Johnson got robbed of a winning touchdown by the powers that be against the Chicago Bears when his could-have-been game winning touchdown grab was called a catch. The Lions are used to losing though.
The Lions are not the only team choking this year though. The Detroit Pistons have also lost more games than they have won. Standing at a big seven wins and sixteen loses at the time of this article, the Pistons need a break!
The NHL Detroit Red Wings are not going to get away without facing the list of worst sports moments of 2010 either. Numerous complaints are being made about the amount of goals they are allowing opposing teams to get during the opening and closing minutes of the game periods. Shame on you!
