Thats a tough team

It had all the makings of a classic heavyweight boxing match - Riddick Bowe vs. Evander Holyfield in the second of what would become three great title bouts. That is, until James Miller grabbed the spotlight. Wearing a parachute with a propeller attached, Miller glided from the sky above and into the ring area at Caesars palace during the second minute of the seventh round. The lines on his paraglider became tangled in the overhead lights, dropping him down at ringside and into the crowd of spectators. With ruly boxing fans and security detail swarming him almost immediately, Miller was knocked unconscious before being sent to hospital where he was charged with dangerous flying. Henceforth, the legend of Fan Man was born - twenty years ago today on Nov. 6, 1993. Tonight, SportsCentre looks back at that infamous moment in sports history with its Top 10 memorable fans - and wants you to vote for your favourite. The Candidates (5): Jeffrey Maier - Game 1 of the 1996 ALCS between the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles and the Orioles were up 4-2 at the bottom of the eighth. Maier, 11, caught a Derek Jeter hit over the rails at the left centre field stands at Yankee Stadium. The umpires ruled it to be a home run instead of fan interference and New York would go on to win the game and the series. Steve Bartman - Another eighth inning incident - this time in the 2003 NLCS between the Cubs and Marlins. With Chicago up 3–2 in the series and 3-0 in Game 6, some fans attempted to catch a foul ball off the bat of Marlins second baseman Luis Castillo. Lifelong Cubs fan Steve Bartman reached for the ball, stopping a potential catch and second out by Cubs outfielder Moises Alou. The Cubs ended up surrendering eight runs in the inning and lost the game, 8-3. They then lost Game 7, which many Cubs fans say was kickstarted by Bartman. Pummeled Nordiques fan - No controversy here, just an old fashioned beatdown. In a home game against the Quebec Nordiques in 1992, Buffalo Sabres forward Rob Ray beat up a Nordiques fan who had snuck onto the ice and approached the bench. That was one brave (maybe not so bright) guy. Philly fan with Tie Domi - Toronto Maple Leaf Tie Domi wrestled with a spectator who jumped from the second row and landed on the glass separating the box from the crowd during the Leafs games against the Philadelphia Flyers at First Union Center. Domi, who had just been penalized early in the third period, twice poured water over taunting fans in the front row before the attacking fan, Chris Falcone, jumped in and landed on the glass. Falcone leaned into it while throwing a punch at Domi. He then fell into the box as Domi grabbed him. The Saddledome Streaker - Wearing only a pair of red socks at a game between the Calgary Flames and Boston Bruins, a fan scaled the glass near the penalty box during a stoppage in play and just over five minutes left in the game. He then slipped when his feet touched the ice and landed hard on his back and head, knocking himself unconscious. After a delay of six minutes, he was removed on a stretcher to a huge ovation from the Pengrowth Saddledome crowd. Watch SportsCentre at 6pm et/3pm pt for the Top 10 most memorable fans.

Ray Nitschke Packers Jersey . "Last year didnt go the way we wanted it to, but we need to look at what went well and what didnt go so well. Hopefully this year we will be better," Brendan Gallagher said after practice. This year, the Canadiens have a little more depth to work with by adding players like Daniel Briere, Dale Weise, Mike Weaver, Douglas Murray and arguably, the biggest addition to this playoff roster, Thomas Vanek, who the Canadiens were able to land at the trade deadline. LOS ANGELES -- Matt Barnes is back playing with the Los Angeles Clippers, and it looked as though hed never been away. Wearing goggles to protect his surgically repaired left eye, Barnes contributed 13 points off the bench, including three 3-pointers to help the Clippers win their fourth straight, 112-91 over the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. "Love having him back," said Blake Griffin, who had 24 points and 16 rebounds. "Hes a guy who has a positive impact even if he doesnt score a basket." Barnes played for the first time since undergoing three procedures to repair a torn retina in his eye. He got hurt on Nov. 18 when Memphis Zach Randolph inadvertently hit Barnes in the eye. "I feel good," he said, adding that he doesnt like the goggles. "I got elbowed and the goggles gave me a bruise. I dont see myself wearing them long." Clippers coach Doc Rivers said of Barnes, "He looked good. He just gives us something extra -- the toughness, the cutting, the basketball IQ. His shot looked good." Jamal Crawford scored 27 points, hitting six 3-pointers as the Clippers led all the way. Chris Paul added 10 points and 11 assists. DeAndre Jordan had 12 rebounds. "Whenever we set the tone in the first quarter it kind of carries us," Crawford said. "Chris and those guys threw some good passes. I had the easy part shooting the ball." Wilson Chandler scored all of his 19 points in the first half and Timofey Mozgov had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Nuggets, who lost their third straight. Ty Lawson added 13 points as Denver was held to 35 per cent shooting. "We just got thoroughly outplayed by a better team. They pretty much did what they wanted to do to us on the boards. Inside, outside, and on the break, our energy was bad," Nuggets coach and former Lakers star Brian Shaw said. "Were not in a good place right now. Weve got to do some soul searching and really get back to the basics if we want to right the ship." Nuggets starter Kenneth ;Faried rolled his left ankle at 8:45 of the first quarter and didnt return.dddddddddddd The Clippers made 13 3-pointers, improving to 21-2 since the start of last season when they make at least 11. They hit five 3s in the third, including three by Crawford, who had 11 points in the quarter. Griffin went coast-to-coast for a dunk in the third, when Los Angeles stretched its lead to 79-60. "Thats a tough team," Chandler said. "Youve got to try to take something away on the fast break, but theyve got the layups, theyve got the lobs or theyve got the open man for the 3, so its kind of tough." Grifffin and the other starters got some rest to start the fourth before he, Crawford, Paul and Jared Dudley returned midway through. Griffin made four straight free throws and Crawford scored to restore the Clippers lead to 20 points with under five minutes to go. Griffin provided two highlights in the second. He dribbled the length of the court, drawing oohs from the crowd as he went behind his back three times before doing a 360-degree spin and hitting a layup. It didnt count, though, when Lawson was called for a foul. Griffin made 1 of 2 free throws to give the Clippers their largest lead of the half, 44-27. "I dont even know what I was doing," Griffin said, smiling. Barnes missed and Griffin flew in and slammed the ball down for the one-handed putback that kept the Clippers ahead by 11. Darren Collison got in on the act, too. Barnes tipped the ball as the Nuggets inbounded and Collison tossed up a 22-foot desperation heave that went in at the buzzer, keeping the Clippers ahead 56-43 at halftime. Collison scored 13 points. NOTES: Nuggets F Jordan Hamilton returned after serving a one-game suspension for throwing a punch in Tuesdays loss to Oklahoma City. ... Clippers G J.J. Redick is expected to get the cast off his right hand early next week. Hes recovering from a broken hand and torn ligaments in his wrist. ...
