What a year 2005 was. Such an eventful year.
UNC won the NCAA hoops title. White Sox won the World Series. NFL TD celebrations are the biggest thing. The NBA Dress Code and age limit. The "Mexi-Cam". A dropped third strike that wasn't. The nightmare of Hurricane Katrina. Terrell Owens. The New NHL. Raffy getting busted for roids. England regains the Ashes. Jerry Rice, Karl Malone and Reggie Miller retire. Bob Huggins gets canned. Randy Moss admits he smokes the hippie lettuce. Ricky Williams tells us he no longer does. Lance Armstrong wins the Tour de France again. London gets the 2012 Olympics. The massive NCAA conference realignments happen. Giacomo wins the Derby.
The Whizzinator. The Sex Boat. The Super Bowl ticket scalping. The Vikings.
I was a Vivi Award nominee. "Two Minute Warning" launched. We lost Wellington Mara, Sam Mills, Jason Collier, Thomas Herrion and George Mikan.
