7 Most Memorable Sports Moments of 2013By Shana Renee
Take a look back at the year in sports on WhoSay.
It's time to say goodbye to the 2013 year in sports. From Super Bowl XLVII to the 2013 Heisman Ceremony, recall some of the year's most memorable moments shared by WhoSay’s athletes, sports anchors, and your favorite celebrities who were on the scene for it all.
1. Super Bowl XLVII
Super Bowl XLVII was one for the ages. Beyoncé's halftime performance, the unforgettable power outage, and of course, the epic finish by the current Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens. NFL Network Rich Eisen and a few more WhoSay sports fans experienced it live and took us behind the scenes of the Big Game.
2. Boston Marathon
The Boston Marathon bombing was a sports lowlight, but a moment we won't soon forget. While extremely tragic, it gave us a reason to rally together as a nation and uplift the City of Boston. WhoSay's celebrities showed an outpouring of support by honoring the victims and tagging photos with #PrayforBoston.
3. NFL Draft
Last April, hundreds of aspiring NFL athletes attended the 2013 NFL Draft hoping to fulfill lifelong dreams. ESPN SportsCenter host Jay Harris took us behind the velvet rope of ESPN's Pre-Draft party. And, the NFL Network's Rich Eisen gave us a peek behind the scenes on Draft Day hosted at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.
4. NBA Championship
Miami Heat and WhoSayer Chris Bosh hoisted his second NBA trophy in June. Naturally, he took us along for the ride at the parade as he and his Heat teammates celebrated repeating as NBA Champions.
5. U.S. Open
One of New York's premier sporting events is the U.S. Open, and each year, the tennis tournament boasts a who's-who of celebrities. See which WhoSay stars flicked it up courtside while enjoying the action.
6. Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alverez
When Floyd Mayweather is fighting, no matter the opponent, it's must-see TV. The record-shattering Pay-Per-View receipts prove it. Last September, the undefeated boxing champion put his WBA (Super) Light Middleweight title on the line against Canelo Alverez and came out victorious. ESPN's Robert Flores was on hand for the pre-fight action.
7. Heisman Ceremony
It's hard to believe that NFL legend and 1988 Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders' first appearance at the Heisman Ceremony took place earlier this month. Sanders documented the momentous occasion and shared it with his WhoSay fans.
