C'mon... you know what I'm talking about. The ones you find yourself reminiscing about with your buddies twenty years later. The ones you tell your grandkids about. The ones you talk about with other sports fans as you remind them that "you were there".
Last night's game between the San Jose Earthquakes and the Los Angeles Galaxy was one of those games.
Simply put... it was awesome.

Great company. Delicious food. Amazing half time show. Best seats in the house. And one helluva game.
Then in the 77th minute, Victor Bernardez received his 2nd yellow card, which left the Earthquakes shorthanded (sorry... I'm used to watching hockey games) for the rest of the game. From that point on... time seemed to fly by.
As the two teams entered stoppage time, the Galaxy clung onto their one goal lead. And just when it looked like they were going to walk away with a win... this happened:
One Man Down + Two Goals In 90 Seconds = One For The Ages
And if that weren't enough... we were all treated to an amazing fireworks display after the game:
Thank you Secret Squirrel & Company for taking me to the game and giving me one of my favorite sports memories.
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
