FOR MOST EMOTIONAL SPORTS MOMENT, WE'RE GOING WITH "THE MIRACLE ON ICE"

[Ed's note: Not sure what All-World Power Rankings is? Please click here.]

Barack Obama's inauguration earlier today was undoubtedly emotional. In the room we were watching in, when Chief Justice Roberts said "…Mr. President…,"about fifteen people straight burst into tears. As such, we wanted to attempt ranking some of the most emotional moments in sports history. One caveat: emotion is inherently contextual, which is to say, if you're a fan of the Oklahoma Sooners, their 13-2 win over Florida State eight years ago is probably more emotive for you than watching USC beat Penn State. We tried to make it as universal as possible.
