Michael Phelps

Michael Phelps breaks a world-record time as he wins his first Olympic gold medal at the Athens Games, adding fuel to Phelps mania. Although Phelps failed to match Mark Spitz record of seven gold medals, Phelps took home eight medals, six of them gold. He also got much attention for sportsmanship by giving his spot to Ian Crocker in the 4x100 medley relay final. Because he swam a leg in an earlier round, Phelps would earn whatever medal the U.S. took home, but it allowed Crocker to grab gold after losing his best event to Phelps earlier.

The Bloody Sock

The Pacers Brawl

Pacers forward Ron Artest, with help from teammate Stephen Jackson, sparks the biggest mle in the 58-year history of the NBA by going into the crowd and attacking a fan, who threw a beverage at him. The event gets dubbed "The Malice at the Palace" since it was at Detroit's arena. Artest is suspended for the rest of the Pacers' season -- 86 games -- the longest non-drug related penalty in NBA history.
