It was a rare opportunity for the sports fan to see many of the world's greatest athletes performing at their peak in the most dire or important of circumstances.

The Super Bowl saw, perhaps, it's greatest catch and most dramatic ending.
The NCAA Men's basketball tournament went into overtimeâ€”thanks to Mario Chalmersâ€”for the first time since 1988.
Two olympians dazzled the world with their athleticism and skillâ€”combining for 11 gold medals.
Not to mention, one of the NBA's best franchises returned to the NBA finals after a long absence.
It was that kind of year in 2008, one we won't soon forget.
