1986 World Series Greatest Hits (and misses!)

Oh, Noooooooooooo!

The most famous error in World Series history probably cost the Boston Red Sox the 1986 crown. It was made in Game 6 against the New York Mets. The score was tied, 5-5, in the bottom of the 10th inning. A tricky grounder rolled between the legs of Boston first baseman Bill Buckner. The Mets scored a run and won the game. One night later, the Mets beat the Red Sox again to win the Series.

Meet Jamal Anderson

Atlanta falcon running back Jamal "Jam" Anderson is a steamroller. His 5' 11'', 234-pound body flattens NFL defenders.

Jamal had the best season of his five-year career in 1998. He led the NFC in rushing yards (1,846) and the Falcons to their first Super Bowl appearance.

Jamal injured his knee in the first game of the 1999 season. He is expected to miss the entire season. But he'll be back in 2000.
