I'll show why football rocks through football videos!
I'm not kidding when I say these two moments are probably the greatest moments of my life.
The first one is from 1999. Man United and Arsenal are in the semi final for the biggest cup in England. They draw and the game goes to a replay. After 90 minutes of the replay the teams are again tied. That's 180 minutes of football been played and nothing is seperating the teams. If Man United win, they have a chance of winning the three biggest trophies in football, something that has never happened before.
And then, oh no! Man United have thier captain sent off, and Arsenal have a penalty awarded. But then the keeper saves it! And the game goes into extra time. After 180 minutes the players are knackered.
And then Ryan Giggs did this.

The second one is from the same season. The Champions League final. All the best clubs in Europe go into one big competition, and this is the final. Man United had allready won the FA cup, they'd won the Premierleague, and this was to win the treble, something never done before or since.
Just watch this video to see how it goes.
The players reaction shows why football is the best sport in the world.
I could watch that again and again.
You only need to watch the first few minutes to get the gist.
