Talk about your broad topics.
But this, Independence Day, is the time to talk about the significant victories in American sports, be they by national teams or individuals representing the country, or just by American athletes or in an American sport.
This list will be an amalgamation of all of those.
Will some of your favorite moments be left out? Undoubtedly—if there is one sure thing in the construction of a list like this, it is that no two people’s lists will ever be identical.
So what I went looking for were the victories that defined the American sports scene, moments that changed it.
Some won’t surprise you. Some might.
In any event, enjoy and have a happy Independence Day.
