Greatest Sports Upsets, Part II

Sports upsets live vividly in our memories, taking us back to that day when we were stunned to see a mammoth underdog take out an unbeatable favorite. We wanted to provide you with a list of the ten greatest upsets in sports to show you that David has conquered Goliath on many occasions.

We are confident that on Super Bowl Sunday the NY Giants will provide New Yorkers with another great memory when they beat the New England Patriots.

8. The Miracle Mets- Only seven years after they came into existence as one of the worst teams in baseball history, the Mets stunned the Orioles in the 1969 World Series. The perennially awful Mets trailed the Cubs by 9½ games on Aug. 13 before rallying to win the pennant and reach their first World Series.

7. Jack Fleck wins the 1955 U.S. Open
A total unknown, Fleck beat Ben Hogan in an 18-hole playoff to win the 1955 U.S. Open, still the most shocking upset in golf history.
