ESPN: '04 ALCS Comeback 'Greatest' Moment

Millar: 'Don't Let Us Win Tonight'
ESPN has reviewed the Top 20 Greatest Moments In Sports over the last 20 years and tabbed Boston's 2004 ALCS win over The Evil Empire as #1. Interestingly, a couple of other Boston sports moments made the list—Malcom Butler's interception came in at #18 and the 2008 Patriots loss in the Super Bowl ranked #7. But, The World Wide Leader correctly picked the Red Sox ALCS triumph as the best of all. Of course, that ALCS win led to the first World Series Championship in 86 years. But, beating The Empire after being down 3-0 (and being humiliated at Fenway in Game 3 by a score of 19-8) is—in fact—our proudest moment. Ever.
