skywalkerAinge's drive was a great tournament play and
there's nothing wrong with remembering it under the heading of "Today
in sports: "For the few who haven't seen it, I believe
there's still a clip of it on YouTube.
Uncle RicoYes, every March we're reminded of icon
games/players/plays from past NCAA tournaments - unfortunately for the haters,
one of those iconic plays is John Wooden Award Winner Danny Ainge's
end-to-end game-winning drive versus Notre Dame in the 1981 Sweet Sixteen that
propelled BYU into the Elite Eight.30+ years later, it's still
considered one of the all-time great plays in NCAA tournament history.
Of course we never hear about 2004 or 2008, blah, blah, blah. You see, YOU
think that a National Championship or Danny Ainge's 8 second drive to glory
are not relevant because they happened too long ago. Okay, for the sake of the
argument, I'll agree with you.In sports, the only thing that is
relevant is what you did THIS year. And the only reason that is relevant is
because we don't know what the future holds. Unless of course, you're
done...So, by that standard, Utah football, blah, blah, blah. Utah
basketball? You got it!Which by the way is a shame, because this
year's Ute team played with heart and finished with a bang. Finished too
soon in my opinion. But finished, all the same.
Here we go again. 32 years ago, Danny Ainge , blah, blah blah...
