Vote for the one you think was the biggest "upset"
Buster Douglas KO of Mike Tyson
IMO it's gotta be the Miracle on Ice. A rag tag bunch of college kids beating a team of Soviet professionals that could've walzed to a Stanley Cup title in the NHL. I still don't know how they did it.
Although it wouldn't be considered an upset...we all know the biggest comeback in sports history...which began with the event pictured below.
Also considered the greatest choke.
Yep...in recent years, that has been a trend for New York baseball teams.
Miracle on Ice, easy.
It would be as if a bunch of amateur football players from Scotland beat the NFL all-stars, simply inconceivable.
o hell the old guy with the bad knees....kirk..something....only way to win was for him to hit a homer....which he did
 The 1988 World Series home run
Main article: Kirk Gibson 1988 World Series home run
Gibson is perhaps best known for his single plate appearance in the 1988 World Series against the Oakland Athletics. With a stomach virus and injuries to both legs sustained during the League Championship Series, Gibson was not expected to play at all. In Game 1, on October 15, 1988 at Dodger Stadium, with the Dodgers trailing by a score of 4–3, Mike Davis on first, and two out in the ninth inning, manager Tommy Lasorda inserted Gibson as a pinch hitter.
Gibson hobbled up to the plate to face Oakland's future Hall of Fame closer Dennis Eckersley. Gibson quickly got behind in the count, 0–2, but received two outside pitches and fouled off a pitch to work to a 2–2 count. On the sixth pitch of his at bat, a ball, Davis stole second. With an awkward, almost casual swing, Gibson used pure upper-body strength to smack a 3–2 backdoor slider over the right-field fence. He hobbled around the bases and pumped his fist as his jubilant teammates stormed the field. The Dodgers won the game, 5–4, and would go on to win the World Series, 4–1.
