Second Round of Boston’s Greatest Sports Moment Voting Appeals Across Generations

Second Round of Boston's Greatest Sports Moment Voting Appeals Across Generations The results in the second round of the Boston’s Greatest Sports Moment tournament could be determined by what generation voters belong to.

Is Rocky Marciano‘s undefeated record bigger than Ty Law‘s pick-six in Super Bowl XXXVI? That may depend on whether you were alive to see the Brockton Blockbuster at his best.

Doug Flutie‘s Hail Mary pass to Gerard Phelan didn’t lead to a Stanley Cup title as Michael Ryder‘s save did, but if you can remember watching Flutie jump for joy, that may sway your vote. And though Jason Varitek may have sparked the Red Sox’ run to the 2004 World Series when he put his mitt in Alex Rodriguez‘s face, Celtics fans rejoiced in 1965 when Johnny Most yelled “Havlicek stole the ball!”

No matter what year you were born, cast your votes for who you think should move on to the third round in the Boston’s Greatest Sports Moment bracket.
