Top 5 FW/d sports moments of the year

Without the use of The Google, I am going to try to list the Top 5 sports moments of 2011. I'm going to try to mention specific plays ... off the top of my head. Here goes ...

5. DeMarco Murray sets a Cowboys franchise record.
It seems like five years ago Cowboys rookie running back DeMarco Murray broke the team's single game rushing record with a little more than 250 yards against the Rams.

Aptopix-alcs-tigers-rangers-baseball-6ef0d2a7f794c3604. Nelson Cruz's walkoff GS against the Tigers.
It stinks that Cruz finished the playoffs with a very painful moment, but in the ALCS against the Tigers he provided one of the greats when he hit a towering walk off Grand Slam at the Ballpark. 


3. Tank Carder's PBU vs. Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
Disregard the fact that Wisconsin had a receiver wide open in the end zone to tie the game on this 2-point conversion; but TCU linebacker Tank Carder perserved a 21-19 lead by batting down a pass in the final minute to give the Frogs a Rose Bowl win. 



2. Mike Napoli's two-run double in Game 5 of the World Series in Arlington.
The Rangers' catcher broke open a 2-2 game with this eighth-inning drive into the right center gap that put the Rangers ahead in the World Series, 3-2. The Ballpark went wild. Something happened in Game 6, but why re-live it? 

1. Mavs win Game 4 of the NBA Finals v. Heat on Dirk's driving layup.
There are probably 20 possible moments to pick from the Mavs' title winning run, but I wanted one in front of the home crowd and this was it. Dirk goes to his right to hit a driving layup to provide the necessary breathing room in the final seconds. The Mavs went on to win the next two games, and their first NBA title.
