What defines a year? … Is the answer not the events that occurred?
And wow! … 2012 was loaded with events.
Thankfully, Portland Trail Blazers rookie center Meyers Leonard managed to sum up all of its parts in one compact tweet.
As all-encompassing as that single tweet may be, it does not include any moments in sports (the Olympics withstanding).
This year has seen a lot happen in sports, especially here in the US.
To recap some of the marquee moments:
- Manny Pacquiao fell at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez.
- The New York football Giants won another Super Bowl at the expense of the New England Patriots.
- The San Francisco baseball Giants swept the Detroit Tigers in the World Series after an improbable run that included trailing the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 in a best-of-five Divisional series, and (again) coming back in the best-of-seven League Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
- American tennis star Andy Roddick called it quits in 2012, choosing to retire after years of nagging injuries prevented him from playing at his best while Serena Williams continued to impose her will in women’s tennis.Pages: 1 2
