The Greatest Moment in Sports

For over a month I have been wrestling with the phrase, “the greatest moment in sports.” If you will recall, those words were thrown around with great glee by pundits near and far to describe Tiger Woods winning the Masters in April, and many pages were filled with glowing descriptions of how his accomplishment exceeded all the accomplishments that had come before. Not only Mr. Woods’ accomplishments, but apparently everybody else’s as well. That’s the part the I have been wrestling with since then because that is what it means when we say it was the greatest moment. Nothing before it was as good, and nothing afterwards will reach the standard set this day. It’s a pretty hefty weight to put on a moment, especially a moment as fleeting as winning a golf tournament.
