    Personally, the Eagles-Raiders Super Bowl or game 5 of 83 World Series, which felt like blow outs.

    I remember thinking the 1990 A's were going to destroy the Reds in the World Series.

    Nope, they lost 4 games to 1 I believe.

    so much for the bash brothers.

    We had the misfortune to play Bama in the fall of 1972. We thought we were a very good team, lol.

    The plane flight back to California was silent. Bama 66, Cal 0.
    Ouch.

    Have a nice day

    I agree with the original post, Germany vs. Brazil (7-1) was a real blowout.

    I know there have been other lopsided games in other sports, but what made this particularly a major blow out was that it happened in the semi-finals of the biggest sporting event of the world between two very good teams (actually, the two very best teams historically in the sport during a time when both teams were having a good year). Also, you have to factor in the fact that it was Brazil's home turf. This was not a game where a very strong team beat a mediocre team by a wide margin. These were the best of the best with none having an off year or rebuilding year. That is why it is so lopsided.

    Actually, the Reds swept them in the Series. They presently have a nine game winning streak in the World Series.

    Jags 62-7 over the Dolphins in a 1999 playoff game. Dan Marino's final NFL game.

    Yes, you are correct. I must have been thinking about the 88 series vs LA. I think oakland won the first game and then lost 4 in a row that year.

    The Reds blew the doors off from the A's even with Eric Davis being out. I dont remember which game he was injured, but I think he injured a kidney? attempting a diving catch in the OF.

    Wasn't that a Bud Carson led team?? He showed promise as a HC but faded fast. The Browns have been paying for that walk-over for 30+ years now but it was fun to watch!! :p

  • BrickBrick Posts: 4,907 ✭✭✭✭✭

    If I remember correctly, which I do on occasion, Pittsburgh won the rematch and the Browns had their usual sucking year.

    This game was not as close as the score indicated.

    I didn't actually watch this game but the Memphis Grizzlies beating the OKC Thunder by 73 points has to be up there. The Griz won 152-79 in december of 2021.

    That game was unimaginable. It was like 55-7 at half or something like that.
