Your happiest sports-related memories

I'm talking from the point of view of a fan.

Mine are:

Yugoslavian volleyball team winning gold at the Olympics in Sidney '00. That was joy!!!

Our women's handball team winning bronze at the World Championships '01. First the heartbreaking loss to Norway in the semis (damn you Cecile Leganger ), then great comeback against Denmark in the bronze play-off. One of the rare times I cried of happiness because of sports...

Cuban women's volleyball team winning their 3rd consecutive Gold at the Sydney Olympics. I'm not even particularly interested in volleyball, but I loved those girls, and I LOVE Cuba!

Also probably Cathy Freeman's Gold medal run.

It's not related to a particular sporting moment, but one of my happiest memories is, as an eight-year-old, slowly collecting the entire album of Panini stickers for the Italia 90 World Cup

hmm....mine are all tennis or hockey related.

1999 Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals...up into the wee hours of the morning and seeing Brett Hull flip the puck over a floppin' Dominik Hasek (yes, his foot was in the crease, but noone got off their asses and made them get back on the ice, so tough fuckin' luck ) to win the Stanley Cup.

2000 Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals...at the end of the game, ESPN panned around old Reunion Arena and turned the volume up on the crowd noise whom were all chanting "Ed-die's Bet-ter *clap clap clapclapclap*" over and over and over...brings a tear to me eye

2000 U.S. Open men's singles final - seeing my boy Marat Safin stave off the only break points against his serve in the final game...and that screaming cross-court passing shot to win the match...and the absolute joy that erupted across his face... wonderful day!!

The Chicago Bulls 6 championships, especially the third one with John Paxson hitting the game winning three pointer against Phoenix, I still remember it like it was yesterday.
