Third Round of Boston’s Greatest Sports Moment Tournament Calls for Tough Choices

Third Round of Boston's Greatest Sports Moment Tournament Calls for Tough Choices We went easy on you in the first two rounds. Now the Boston's Greatest Sports Moment matchups get really interesting.

Almost every moment contained in the third round of the BGSM bracket has, at one time or another, been described as the greatest moment in Boston sports history. By next week, eight of those moments will be eliminated. 

Curt Schilling pitching with a bloody sock in 2004 was chilling, but Bobby Orr's flying goal has stood as a lasting image since 1970. One of them gets the heave-ho this week.

The rest of the matchups are just as tough to call. Cast your vote to make sure your favorite moment makes it to the quarterfinals.
