    You guys should stick to movies and entertainment and avoid sports vids. Top 10 Most Shocking Mistakes in Sports ALL have to be championship mistakes: like Scott Norwood's Wide Right or Pete Carroll calling a pass play at the Patriots 1 yd line with Marshawn Lynch available. Leon Lett get caught from behind?!? The Cowboys slaughtered the Bills in that game 2,451 to 17. So it would have been 2,458 to 17 if Lett scores, big deal. Also you should mention that since Buckner and Bartman both the Sox and the Cubbies have won the World Series, so those blows are softened now.

        The worst sport in the world is soccer. To even receive death threats??? Fuck that sport. A win is a win and a loss is a loss. Period. Take like it like a real man.

          Cub fans were incited by cub player and the guy next to him did more to interfere than him. Look at it closer and you'll see

                  Just imagine if u put officiating mistakes up here. Their mistakes actually cost teams playoffs and very important games

                    Bill Buckner gets a bum rap. That ball was hit so slowly, and Mookie Wilson was such a fast runner, that even if Buckner had fielded it cleanly, Wilson would have still made it to first base and the Mets would have won. Agreed that Escobar should have the top spot. Everyone else on this list cost their team a win, or cost them personal embarrassment. Escobar's mistake, in the biggest sporting event in the world, cost him his life.

                          Lol the Americans and Canadians love to take credit for things they didn't invent like American Football which is just rugby, Baseball is just Rounders, Ice Hockey is just Hockey, 'Soccer' (🤮) is football and u didn't even create Basketball, some Scottish bloke did

                                    Excuse me. Most shocking mistkes of maybe the last 35 years. Look up Fred Merkle. His boner in 1908 cost the NY Giants the NL pennant and led to the Chicago Cubs last championship until 2016.

                                          I've been a cubs fan since way before bartman. But it was a huge overreaction by the Cubs organization and the fan base. I'm happy that they now gave him a ring after they won the World Series.

                                                    What about Liverpool’s two fuck ups during the 2013/2014 season? Gerrard’s slip is the most famous but them bottling a 3-0 lead against Crystal Palace was the worst.

Galarraga was not situated on the base, he was moving and not in control of his body, so he has to have the ball secured in his glove, not just in his glove.

He was the reason for why an average german national team with a few standout players reached the world cup final against Brazil, only for fumbling a straight up shot from Rivaldo that gave Ronaldo the chance for the 1-0. He still got the award for best player, but losing the world cup in that fashion is very frustrating.
