Re: Happiest/Saddest/Angriest times of being a sports fan?

Happiest - Seeing England beat Scotland at Euro 96 at Wembley. I remember you had to apply for tickets for games prior to knowing the matches (it was before the draw) and i couldnt believe that i'd got England/Scotland tickets!! It was a magic day and a great game. My other one was seeing Derby finally win a play off final, and it being the first one at the new Wembley!!

Saddest - The following season from that play off final win where we got 1 WIN all bloody season!! God that was depressing!! On a personal level the Hillsborough disaster will stick with me as the saddest. As a young girl in my very early teens i loved Liverpool and so did my best friend who was a season ticket holder and her and her family managed to get three tickets. However, 1 couldn't go on that fateful day so she asked if i wanted the ticket. I, of course, said yes only to be ill that day. (fate?) She stood at the Leppings lane end of the ground, in that middle pen with her dad, and still wonders how she got out. She cant remember hardly any of it, but she had to have counselling for many years after and has never gone to another match. I believe she knew 2 or 3 people (just from going to games) who never made it home. The last couple of days really have brought those memories flooding back.

Angriest- THAT Sun headline. I knew it was lies right from the start, but shows how powerful the media still is that many people believed them. I hate The Sun with a passion and refuse to buy it!! On a footballing level! When Derby sold Tom Huddlestone to Spurs for a pittance i was bloody livid!! It was so idiotic as we were on the verge of promotion ourselves!! Also, on a smaller scale, being 5-2 in injury time in this year league cup only to lose on penalties after a 5-5 draw!!

Happiest: Texans making it to the playoffs for the first time ever, Texans beating the Bengals in the playoffs to get their first playoff win in franchise history, Texans clinching the AFC South title, The Giants beating the Cowboys last season to make the Cowboys miss the playoffs, Sebastian Vettel winning the 2011 F1 season.

Saddest: Dan Wheldon passing away in 2011(I saw the race on TV. The news was pretty sad when it was first presented)

Angriest: Texans disappointing 2010-2011 season, Texans missing the playoffs in the 2009-2010 season because the Jets were far more superior than the Bengals.

Re: Happiest/Saddest/Angriest times of being a sports fan?

Happiest: (Everton last won the league on May 4th 1987, which was the day I was born, so I can't even say that.) surviving relegation against Wimbledon and Coventry I was perhaps too young the even still to enjoy. I would say I have been most happiest doing the Posnan back to City supporters when we came from behind at Goodison to win 2-1. Also, A LOT of the performances at the Olympics and Paralympics have made me happy this year. As well, watching my brother save last minute penalties or just play superbly probably outshine the rest.

Saddest: Gary Speed, Owen Hart, Eddie and any defeat on derby day.

Angriest: Rustu kicking an England players head off against Turkey about 8 years ago. I was so drunk, as where we all, and I think if we could have made it to arustu we may have beheaded him haha. I sobered up and got over it quickly though,

Happiest: Watching the Flames go to the Stanley Cup finals in 2004. I never really watched them in 1989 when they won their only Stanley Cup by the way.

Saddest: Watching the Flames lose game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.

Angriest: The 2004/2005 NHL lockout. It followed the Flames run to the finals, who knows what the Flames would have done that year. This upcoming lockout is kinda disappointing for me also.

2014-2015 Calgary Flames: 45-30-7(97 pts.)(3rd in Pacific Division)
Western Conference Quarter-Finals vs. Vancouver Canucks: Flames win series 4-2

2014 Seattle Seahawks: 12-4(NFC West Champions, NFC Champions)
