    Looking at it from a purely Irish perspective at the moment my favourite sporting moment of the year was Harrington's second shot on the 17th on the last day of the British Open.

    He'd also easily be Ireland sporting hero for 2008.


    What were this years best sporting moments for you ?

    The tries and goals speak for themselves, but did you see those 6 kicks? They were all simply fantastic.

    I'd also like to add to my list the response made to the Haka.

    Any villains ?

    Faldo springs to mind for me after his Brent-like speech prior to the Ryder Cup.

    Worst ever choice for Ryder Cup captain. I couldn't help laughing when he said he'd consider doing it again. Yeah, right Nicky boy, don't call us, we'll call you.

    Villian- Brett Farve, nobody wants to turn on the tv and here the latest news on you retiring or not, and then constant updates on how your sorry new team is doing this year, nobody cares.

    Then again I am biased, I really do not like Farve that much.

    I do like NFL, though I don't know nearly as much about it as some fellow posters on here. If you wanted an LFC site with NFL fans among its members you've come to the right place.
