All through the rest of the summer on Mackey & Judd (9a to 1p weekdays), we will - with help from listeners - create top 10 lists. Coming to a consensus is not easy, but the discussion is always fun.
This week's list was the 10 most memorable plays in Minnesota sports history. With help from social media, emailers and callers, we narrowed a list of roughly 50 candidates down to 10. We're still not totally sure about this list of 10, but here's what the consensus led us to:
Kirby Puckett's walk-off homer in Game 6 of the 1991 World Series
Gary Anderson's missed field goal in the 1998 NFC Championship Game
Kent Hrbek pushing Ron Gant off first base in the 1991 World Series
Brett Favre's interception in the 2009 NFC Championship Game
The Drew Pearson push-off play
Jim Marshall runs the wrong way
Kent Hrbek's grand slam in Game 6 of the 1987 World Series
Andrew Brunette's game-winning goal against the Avalanche in 2003
Gene Larkin drives home Dan Gladden to win the 1991 World Series
Grant Potulny's overtime goal against Maine in 2002 to give the Gophers a national title
- Brett Favre to Greg Lewis in 2009
- Blake Hoffarber's ESPY-winning miracle shot for Hopkins
- Chip Lohmiller beats Michigan in 1986
- Dan Nystrom beats Penn State in 1999
... and a million others.
