Woods vs. Rams


Poll Results

Tiger Woods

Why he is on the list: Tiger had a pretty good 12 months. In no particular order: He became the first player since 1953 to win three majors in a year; he won nine PGA Tour events (the most since 1950); his scoring average was 68.17 -- 1.46 shots better than his nearest competitor; he had $9 million in official earnings -- which doesn't include his $100 million deal with Nike. Next question.

Cinderella Rams

Why they are on the list: In 1999, the Rams finished 4-12 and despite the success they had leading up to the postseason in 2000, critics were still saying that the team hadn't faced any tough opponents. Then in the final minutes of Super Bowl XXXIV, it came down to quarterback Kurt Warner's arm against the Titan defense. With the score tied at 16-16 and 2:05 remaining, Warner heaved the ball down the right sideline where Rams receiver Isaac Bruce slowed and outjumped cornerback Denard Walker to grab the ball. Then Bruce dodged safety Anthony Dorsett and ran in for the 73-yard game-winning touchdown.
