Important blown calls in sports history

In honor of tonight's horrific call at first base costing Detroit's Armando Galarraga a perfect game, let's hear all about huge blown calls of the past.

 

 

One I specifically recall is when an umpire (Denkinger) call a Kansas City runner safe who was clearly out. At the time, St Louis was winning the series 3 games to 2 and winning the game 1-0. If that runner was called out, the game is over and the Cards win the WS. Instead, that runner scores to tie the game and KC eventually wins the game. The Cardinals then proceeded to implode in game 7 to lose 11-0frown.gif

It doesn't matter much to anyone else on this board, but back in 2006, Rutgers at West Virginia, Steve Slaton clearly fumbled the ball & Devraun Thompson picked it up & ran it in for 6...until the zebras got together & ruled the ball was down by contact. RU lost the game by 2 in triple overtime mad.gif

The "best" was the "illegal block below the waist" call on Hasselbeck--as he was trying to make a shoestring tackle after an INT. headscratch.gif
