    Great goal - not even close to the greatest sports play however.

    Ben Watson running down champ bailey was an amazing play. Still to this day I say champ fumbled thru the end zone

    Though the Butt-fumble was a very fortuitious play for the Patriots the greatest sports play still has too be the Willie Mays over the shoulder catch. The throw to second base was so good that the guy who tagged up and went to third on the play couldn't score,The Polo Grounds CF wall was over 483 feet from home plate,so the throw to second was approximately 366 on the fly! Go out to your nearest baseball diamond and measure 366 feet and see if you can make that throw!On the fly. I bet there are very few Major Leaguers who could even make that throw even if they were facing the second base bag when making it! Let alone just turning and throwing blindly to the general vacinity of second,Willie's throw was dead on nuts!!

    That was a great play,as Ben was the only Patriots player who didn't fall down from exhaustion while chasing Champ on that play.

    Funny, this is the play that came immediately to mind when I saw the headline of this thread.  I saw Mays play late in his career as that once great arm of his was beginning to succumb to wear and tear as well as aging.  His instincts, however, and his remarkable ability to seemingly float to a well hit fly ball were still in tact.  Extraordinary athlete and I totally agree; greatest sports play ever that catch and throw.

    This play doesn't seem remarkable at all, kind of ordinary. Then again, I'm no soccer fan.  But I can remember seeing Pele bicycle kick goals, which seems a lot more athletic than this.

    As for Pats plays, I can't come up with one more dramatic or more remarkable than Vinatieri's 45 yarder in the snow.

    For Boston plays: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=VNpJXDPnQTE&feature=endscreen

    Not a Pats play, but the Marshawn Lynch TD run against the Packers was pretty memorable. Registered on the Richter Scale after all.

    Beckham . . . hitting from over 60 yards (180+ feet beats the 122 ft shot) out is right up there!

    Now, other than the Patriots, in my near 50 years of watching the game, this one is number one for me.

    This may not fall in the category of 'Greatest Play', but in my 72 years, this is to me the greatest performance in sports history.

    Willie Mays amazing. I've always remembered this run by Steve Young as one of the coolest, if anything because he is a QB and not so fast, he just executes every single cut, follows every blocker, and runs the table all the way to daylight. Especially considering it wasn't a designed play it is amazing.

    No it's not.  Perhaps GA used it in one of it's ads.  I've never seen it but I assure you it's real.  Remember seeing it right after it happened, on the web, and thought if that were a MLB player it would be all over the highlight reels.  To bad it was JUST a ballgirl, eh?
