No matter the sport, I absolutely love sports. Minus soccer, I'm sorry but I never can appreciate soccer no matter how hard I try. It's just not for me. Again, I'm sorry. Anyways throughout history there are some crazy matches that for one reason or another we were robbed of. Now let me explain which events I will be including, very simply these athletes would have needed to be active during these hypothetical events. So, for example I will not be discussing Bill Russell vs Shaq to see who the better center is. Or like, Mohammad Ali vs Tyson Fury. However, I will bring out the time machine for a future article if this article gets some good feedback.

On the other hand, fleeing to the Italian mountains from the Nazi’s during WWII made everything that followed seem like child’s play. But it still may be fair to ask, as the bombs were falling and his village being leveled, how much sense could a boy of nine actually make of this.
The Grinch, tears of Joy, fans (if only for one night), and a 30th appearance, the PDC World Championships showing it has it all once again. Darts fans love the worlds as do the players, its a special tournament regardless of what is happening around the world.
Roller coasters are one of the easiest metaphors to describe anything that can rapidly change at a blink of an eye. Life, love, and in this case, sports, are all ideas that are compared to those man-made thrill rides we see at amusement parks. They all have the same premise: taking you on a small, minute long journey that can conjure up all kinds of emotions.

Sooner or later, you're on the actual ride screaming with enjoyment, or more often than not, with fear and anxiety. No matter how you look at roller coasters, they will always spark up some kind of emotion after going through them.
