Biggest Collapses of the Past 35 Years
It is rare to see an epic collapse in sports. These are highly trained professionals and, most of the time, they know how to finish a game or a season.
But part of what keeps sports interesting is the old adage, "It ain't over until it's over."
We were all reminded of that recently when the Red Sox blew a nine-game lead and the Braves an 8 ½-game lead in the season's final month, and the Cowboys and Eagles both blew 20-plus-point second-half leads.
But wait, there is more. Here are some more epic collapses from athletes and teams who seemingly had things all wrapped up, until they watched in horror as it all slipped away.—Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Michael Perez/Patrick Semansky/Tony Gutierrez/Jeff Roberson)
