A refreshing and thought-provoking look at athletes whose legacies have been reduced to one defining moment of defeat - those on the flip side of an epic triumph - and what their experiences can teach us about competition, life, and the human spirit. Every sports fan recalls with amazing accuracy a pivotal winning moment involving a favorite team or player - Henry Aaron hitting his 715th home run to pass Babe Ruth, Christian Laettner's famous buzzer-beating shot in the NCAA tournament for Duke.

While history is written by the victorious, Menefee argues that these moments when an athlete has fallen short are equally valuable to sports history, offering deep insights into the individuals who suffered them and about humanity itself. Telling the losing stories behind such famous moments as the Patriots' Rodney Harrison guarding the Giants' David Tyree during the "Helmet Catch" in Super Bowl XLII; Mary Decker's fall in the 1984 Olympic 1500m; and Craig Ehlo, who gave up "The Shot" to Michael Jordan in the 1989 NBA playoffs, Menefee examines the legacy of the hardest losses, revealing the unique path that athletes have to walk after they lose on their sports' biggest stages. Shedding new light on some of the most accepted scapegoat stories in the sports canon, he also revisits both the Baltimore Colts' l 1. Language: English. Narrator: Curt Menefee.
