This is our second annual "Top Ten Philly Sports Moments of the year." You can find last year's list here. We will roll out a new moment each day (one over the weekend) from now until New Year's Eve.
As we mentioned earlier in this top ten, the departure of Donovan McNabb on Easter Sunday paved the way for some incredible moments.
The afternoon of the Eagles' Monday night game against the Redskins, I wrote the following:
It sounds kind of a lot corny to say this, but tonight will be the biggest game of Michael Vick's career. It's the stuff movies are made of. He has a chance to put his team in a first place tie with the Giants by beating Donovan McNabb on Monday Night Football.
For those of you who read this site, you know that I am rarely melodramatic. But this is an incredible story that is playing out before our very eyes.
It was the perfect blend of intrigue, importance, and excitement. It was Vick vs. McNabb, an NFC East Rivalry to show that the Eagles had made the right choice- both in letting McNabb go and signing the controversial quarterback.
And it didn't disappoint. Video after the jump.
Rest of the Top Ten here. As always, leave your memories of this moment in the comments.
