North Texas vs. The Bay Area: Another heartbreaker for North Texas.
Posted Nov 01 2010 9:23pm
When Tony Bennett first sang, "I left my heart in San Francisco," he couldn't have known how much this could apply to North Texas pro sports teams.
Last night, the San Francisco Giants ended the Texas Rangers' fairytale season in Game 5 of the World Series. It got me thinking of Bennett, and other failed Dallas-area championship efforts to teams by the bay.
After the game, I threw out this question on facebook/twitter What loss to a Bay Area pro sports team was more heartbreaking? Giants-Rangers (2010); Mavericks-Warriors (2007); or Cowboys-49ers (1982 "The Catch Game')?
My vote: Cowboys-49ers.
Still hurts to see how Everson Walls was posterized.
