"HOLY FUCK!" moments in sports.

At the end of lap 21 of the Grand Prix at Kyalami, South Africa, on March 5, 1977, Renzo Zorzi retired his Shadow with a split fuel pipe which had caused a small, but harmless fire. Zorzi's car was parked in a blind brow but two marshalls stationed on the opposite side of the track decided to cross to tackle the fire. At that moment, cars driven by Pryce and Hans-Joachim Stuck suddenly appeared, nearly side-by-side. Stuck's car passed behind the first marshall and ahead of the second marshall, 19 year old Jansen Van Vuuren. Pryce however could not avoid Van Vuuren, hitting him at high speed and killing the marshall instantly. The impact seemed to have only minimal influence on Pryce's car, only slightly damaging its front wing. However, the fire extinguisher Van Vuuren was carrying struck Pryce on the head; the impact tore off Pryce's helmet and nearly decapitated him, killing him instantly. Pryce's car continued down the straight track, gradually slowing down and verging to the right. Jacques Laffite, who was unsure what was going on, moved alongside as the two cars approached Crowthorne, at that point Pryce's car skidded off the barriers, back on the track again, where it hit Laffite's Ligier, taking Laffite out of the race but not injuring him.

As to Van Vuuren, the injuries to his body were extremely severe. His body was split in half and dismembered. It was identified only by exclusion, after the race director summoned all of the race marshalls and Van Vuuren could not be found.

WARNING: FUCKING GRAPHIC

That was fucking... GODDAMN.

You never see it coming, either.

"So, where's the hit? That guy seems to be doing a good job of staying away from the cars. Oh, here comes the guy with the fire extinguisher... no, he made it too. What's the guy doing in the mi... OH HOLY FUCK!"

That Weaver clip is beyond legendary. He set the standard by which Lou Piniella and others follow. Fun fact, Bobby Cox of all people is about to become the all-time leader in games thrown out of as a manager.

Auto crashes are definitely the worst though, the horror crash in Canada a few weeks ago involving Kubica comes to mind. No crash of course is as tragic as the one that killed the best driver ever, Ayrton Senna.

I was thinking of making a wimbledon thread. But didn;t know how many people liked tennis.

I always thought Nadal was going to win due to him playing better in general throughout the tournament. Also I really wanted him to win. After how much effort he put into his final last year. He seemed like he was always fighting a battle he would lose but he never gave up. After that I thought he fully deserved to kick Federer's arse this year and put a stop to his winning streak.

After being 2 sets up I thought he had it in the bag. I was not expecting another 2 hours of the most epic tennis EVER. two tie breakers one of which nadal was up 5-2 and still federer kept pulling it back. Then when Nadal broke his serve and it went to deuce. So go damn epic.

Some amazing moments Nadal's smash hit blocked by federer only to stay in the court. Nadal jumping backwards volley's across the court only to score him points, the net plays. It was all amazing. Two world class players and an AMAZING final.

I had work during the absolute best tennis match ever. FUCK. FUCK. FUCK.

2008 in sports has been pretty epic. One of the 5 best Super Bowls ever played, John Terry vs. the invisible banana, the greatest single accomplishment in golfing history with Tiger at the U.S. Open, and now this. The next half of the year better not let us down.
