Yes, it’s that time again. You just got done picking the greatest sports figures in L.A. history, so now we turn our attention to the greatest sports moments in L.A. history. (And, by the way, Orange County moments are eligible too.)
Voting works just like it did last time. List your choices for the 10 greatest, in order, either in the comment field, or by emailing Fabulous Forum editor Houston Mitchell. Points will be assigned for each spot on the ballot, with first place getting 12 points, second place 10, third place 8, fourth 7, etc., down to one point for 10th place.
Voting will last for a week, with the top 10 to be unveiled beginning Nov. 21. If we get enough ballots, we might expand the list to the top 20.
There are thousands of candidates to pick from. Kirk Gibson’s home run? Eric Dickerson breaking the rushing record? Angels winning the World Series? Any of the multiple Lakers titles? You can be specific, such as rookie Magic Johnson scoring 42 points to lead the Lakers in Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals, to broad, such as the 1984 Summer Olympics. It’s entirely up to you.
If you need a refresher course, the L.A. Sports Council did a similar list in 1995, which you can see here.
