People shared a ton of awesome sports memories in response to a tweet of mine.

On Saturday, the Final Four would have started if coronavirus hadn’t canceled sports. Unfortunately, the games didn’t happen, but it did provide an opportunity to raise everybody’s spirits. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I asked people the sports memory they cherish most, and the reactions were pretty great.

Check out some the best responses below.

It’s times like these when it’s more important than ever to keep our spirits high. I know it was just a simple tweet, but I really enjoyed everybody sharing their favorite memories.

For me, there’s one that will always stand out above the rest, and it’s the 2015 Final Four between Wisconsin and Kentucky.

When the world counted us out, the Badgers just bulled their way to a victory against the Wildcats.

There’ll never be another night like that one in my life. The beers were flowing, the atmosphere was lit and it was a hell of a fun time.

I wish I’d been alive for the Miracle on Ice, but I wasn’t. Clearly, that’s also a special moment for a lot of people.

Let us know in the comments what your favorite sports memory is, and together, we’ll win the war against coronavirus.
