Top ten sports moments of 2010

7. The Ryder cup stays in Europe.
The home crowd watched in muted anticipation before bursting into huge rounds of applause and chants of “Europe, Europe” once Hunter Mahan had conceded the hole. The first ever Ryder cup finale that took place on a Monday was one for the ages as it all came down to the wire.
8. Armando Galarraga's not so perfect game.
It may have been the year of the pitcher in Baseball but the memory that will live on in Baseball fans minds for years to come is that of Jim Joyce's error that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game. Galarraga and Joyce took part in what was easily the most sportsman moment of the year as Galarraga shook the hand of the man who cost him everything he had been working for the next day understanding the emotional Joyce's mistake.
9. Canada beats the USA 3-2 to win Olympic Gold in Ice Hockey.
The Canadians were going up against the Americans who had already beaten them earlier in the tournament. The USA were hoping to mark the 30th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice with a victory over the superstars of Canada while the home nation were looking to be the first team to win the Gold in their home country for over 30 years. A dramatic matchup went into overtime before Sidney Crosby scored the dramatic winning goal.
10. Final four comes down to final shot
The Duke Blue Devils were up by 2 points with .3 seconds to go when the ball left Gordon Hayward's hands from the half court line. The ball bounced off the back of the rim before clearing the hoop and giving the title to Duke. The national championship and winner of the Final Four tournament came down to three inches. A back and forth game was almost won by the underdog, which meant that three inches was the difference between number 1 on this list and number 10.
