Sports Illustrated just released their top 100 greatest sports photos of all time and some Chicago icons made the list. I feel like a proud mama bear when my city is represented in top lists! Here’s who made the cut:
- Coming in at 81: Michael Jordan, All-Star Weekend, Feb. 6, 1988, Photo By Walter Iooss Jr./SI
- Coming in at 50: The one, the only Dick Butkus, St. Louis,Sept. 28, 1969, Photo By Neil Leifer/SI
- Drum roll please….The number one greatest picture of all time: Michael Jordan’s buzzer beater against the Utah Jazz, Game 6, 1998 NBA Finals, Photo By Fernando Medina/NBAE/Getty Images. Doesn’t get much better than that ladies and gents.
Check out the whole gallery, it’s pretty incredible. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/specials/100greatestphotos/?eref=sihp&sct=hp_t14_a0#grid
