Once again another year has passed us faster than Marion Jones after a rubbing of the clear. We have looked at the up and coming, and we have looked at the ugly.
Now, it's time to look at those moments that make you feel good.
There have been so many games that stand out and make you say, "Did that just happen?"
This list was probably my toughest list yet.
So, who makes the cut for this year? Which five games blew me away in 2007? Included on the list are three college football games, one NFL game and one Major League game.
5. Stanford over USC
Imagine going to a place where the home team has won 34 straight at its stadium and you are a 41-point underdog.
To make matters worse, your starting quarterback convulsed in a seizure the week before, making him inactive to play.
That was the Stanford Cardinal, who walked into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum knowing they needed a lot of prayer to beat the No. 1 team in the country.
The second half saw a defense from Stanford that came to play.
Despite having a broken middle finger, USC quarterback John David Booty was still on the field. Booty threw four interceptions. They had an extra point attempt blocked and the receivers could not get the ball.
With 0:49 left in the game, Cardinal quarterback Tavita Pritchard found receiver Mark Bradford for a 10-yard touchdown pass on fourth down, giving Stanford the lead and the win, 24-23.
4. Rockies beat Padres to make the playoffs
After a stellar finish, in which the team won 13 of its last 14 games, the Colorado Rockies tied the San Diego Padres for the National League Wild Card at the end of the regular season forcing a tiebreaker.
It was a back-and-forth battle the entire game, but in the eighth inning, the Rockies were up 6-5 until Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday lost an easy fly ball that fell to the ground, scoring the tying run for the Padres.
The game eventually went into extra innings at 6-6.
In the top of the 13th inning, San Diego's Scott Hairston knocked a two-run homer giving the Padres an 8-6 lead.
The game looked to be over, but Colorado pulled out a miraculous comeback in the bottom of the inning. RBIs from Troy Tulowitzki and Holliday tied the game up with nobody out.
Third baseman Jamey Carroll was up with Holliday at third. Carroll his a sacrifice fly in the outfield, allowing Holliday to score, sort of. Regardless of the call, Holliday was called safe putting the Rockies in the playoffs for the first time in their short history.
3. Boise State over Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Sooners were supposed to eat the Boise State Broncos for dinner. The Broncos had other plans.
Starting the game off with an early 14-0 lead, Boise State left Oklahoma scratching their heads.
Leading by as much as 18 in the third quarter, the Sooners began to step it up.
With the return of running back Adrian Peterson from injury, Oklahoma caught fire in the fourth quarter and eventually tied the game up, 28-28, with 1:26 left to go.
Bronco quarterback Jared Zabransky threw an interception on their next possession as defensive back Marcus Wilson returned the ball for a touchdown giving the Sooners a 35-28 lead.
With 18 seconds left, Boise State faced 4th-and-18. Zabransky threw a 15-yard pass to Darrin James, who threw a lateral to Jerard Rabb. Rabb found the end zone and tied the game with seven seconds to spare.
In overtime, the Sooners struck first, leading 42-35.
Once again, the Broncos were at fourth down, and they pulled out another trick play using Zabranksy as a decoy. Receiver Vinny Perretta threw to tight end Derek Schouman for a touchdown.
Instead of going for the extra point, Boise State went for two.
Performing the statue of liberty play, Zabransky faked a throw and handed off to tailback Ian Johnson who scored the winning conversion.
2. Appalachian State over Michigan
The Michigan Wolverines were No. 5 before the season started. They were one of the favorites to make the national title game.
Quarterback Chad Henne, running back Mike Hart and receiver Mario Manningham all came back to try to accomplish that feat instead of going to the NFL draft.
All three probably wished they did go to the draft after Sept.1 of this year.
The Appalachian State Mountaineers were so big of an underdog there was not even a betting line in Las Vegas.
After the Wolverines found themselves down 28-17 at the half, many people were in disbelief.
However, the Mountaineers began to collapse.
Up 31-26 at the start of the fourth quarter, Michigan's Hart ran for a 54-yard touchdown run putting the Wolverines ahead, 32-31, after failing to score the two-point conversion with 4:36 left in the game.
With less than two minutes left, Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards threw an interception in their own territory.
However, during a field goal attempt, Michigan kicker Jason Gingell's kick was blocked, giving the Mountaineers another shot at a potential upset.
With 0:26 left to go, Appalachian State kicker Julian Rouch kicked a simple 24-yard field goal putting the Mountaineers back on top.
Michigan's Henne found Manningham for 46 yards on the Wolverine's first play on their final possession with 0:06 to go.
Gingell attempted a 37-yard field goal that was blocked again, as Appalachian State became the first Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) team to win against a BCS eligible team.
1. Indianapolis Colts over the New England Patriots
The Patriots had this game. They were up 21-6 at halftime, and they were not going to let this game go. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning was being compared to Dan Marino again. New England did forget something. There was still another half to play.
Manning began an offensive onslaught as Manning scored two touchdowns, one passing and one rushing, putting the Colts back in the game.
With the score knotted at 31-31, Patriot kicker Stephen Gostkowski made a field goal, putting New England ahead, 34-31.
The Colts answered back as rookie running back Joseph Addai scored a rushing touchdown on their next possession with a minute left in the game.
Brady uncharacteristically threw an interception on the Patriots final possession as Indianapolis finally got over the New England hump and made the Super Bowl, where Manning went on to get his first Super Bowl ring.
