Of course.  Nothing beats that.

Or the answer to this question could be the same as the answer to your last question, you racist fuck.  :)

To the masses the Buckner play will always be the worst due to it being in the WS.

Obviously Buckner is number one, so it's more appropriate to ask what the Second Biggest Sports Blunder Ever is. I nominate Chris Weber calling a timeout in the NCAA finals when Michigan had none left, resulting in a technical foul that iced the game for the Dukies.

It was against North Carolina actually.

Buckner's error wasn't in game 7, though.  That one play didn't cost them the Series, and the wild pitch prior to Buckner's error was far more costly.  IIRC Bob Stanley's wild pitch gave up a run, and moved the tying and winning run into scoring position.  Then the ball went through Buckner's legs.

If not for the WP Buckner's error would have left the Sox up by one,or at worst tied.

Jackie Smith (Dallas) dropping a TD pass in the 1978 Super Bowl actually more directly lead to his team losing.

I rank that ahead of Buckner's screwup and don't forget Romo's botched holding of an extra point was a playoff game also. But that would have only tied the score.

Holy shit, that was an epic fuck-up.

In fairness, I don't think the Cowboys were going any further than that win anyways, even if the hold is perfect and they win it in OT.

I would assume Cowboy fans are pretty happy he didn't get ridden out of town on a rail because of that miscue now.....

BJ are you sure it was a tying FG?  I thought they were down 2.

Edit:  We were both wrong.  They were down one.  21-20

It was a field goal, not an extra point, and it would have given us a 23-21 lead.

One thing that everyone seems to forget:
We had a 20-13 lead with 6 minutes to go in the game. We had just stopped Seattle on fourth down and had the ball inside our own 5.
So the New Jersey Con Man calls a fucking SCREEN PASS, which Terry Glenn fumbles into the end zone for a Seattle safety. They get the ball back and score a touchdown to take the lead.

It can be argued that Glenn, not Romo, was the goat of that game.

I dunno if this counts but what about the fan who caught the ball a few years back, right from the hands of the player, and cost his own team the game (and World Series?). It got a lot of coverage over here as well.

Trying to think of some big football (soccer) ones, my sport of choice. Zidane headbutting Materazzi in his last match was a bad way to go out.

There's been some big final day disasters in golf too.

I forgot. I haven't watched it yet this week (I make sure I watch it weekly) That makes it even better though.

I love that the Eagles are so bad that their fans have to live vicariously through our losses. Speaking of Seattle, Feely has already thrown an INT and you're already down 7-0.

Peter Enckelman's own goal in the Blues-V***a derby in 2002.  Lets a throw-in bounce off his foot and into the net.

There waw one soccer player that got killed (mob?) for fucking up a few years back.  That's a pretty big blunder when you get whacked over it. 

And Donnie Moore committed suicide after giving up that Dave Henderson homer in the ALCS.  Wasn't that in '86 too, to get the Red Sox to that WS?  '86 was a fucked up year.
