So if you didn't realize, the Super Bowl happened this past Sunday, February 5. If you missed it like Mark Wahlberg, you missed the greatest Super Bowl comeback in the 51-year history of the game. The Patriots put up 31 unanswered points, riding the arm of Tom Brady to a Super Bowl overtime win. The Pats comeback was the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history, coming back from a 25 point hole to send the game into it's first OT game.

This game capped off an simply remarkable run of championship games across all Sports. Starting in the spring with the NCAA men's basketball game, to the NBA Finals, World Series, and NCAA Football game. All these games lived up to the hype and gave us a season in sports we will never forget.

Spring and summer sizzle

To begin this Year in review kind of deal, we start in the spring where we saw the true meaning of March Madness.

The Men's Basketball championship game featured Villanova and North Carolina. This game lived up to the hype, each team giving big shot after big shot. It all came down to one possession and Villanova came up with a moonshot three-pointer to win the game. The Wildcats stunned the Tarheels bring home their second championship. That was quite the treat for fans, giving them a game to remember.

Game 7 of the NBA finals was another game in the summer that gave us an indication it was a great year for sports.

The Cavs were down 3-1 in the finals to the Warriors, but the Cavs managed to get it to game 7. The Cavs were down at the half and LeBron James' legacy was on the line. The Cavs managed to come back and Kyrie had the shot of the game and LeBron's block on Iguodala is now know as simply "The Block" the Cavs made it out the game winners 93-89, and LeBron James bringing home a title to Cleveland, coming through on his promise. This was the Cavs first ever championship and the first championship for any Cleveland team since 1964.

(Shoutout to the G.O.A.T Jim Brown for that.) That was only the beginning of a great year in sports.

Fall and winter sensations

Moving into the fall and winter the only thing that got cold were the temperatures. The MLB World Series was nothing short of memorable. It featured two teams who were more than ready for a title, the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs have been the laughing stock f the for a while now, but they finally had their chance to end a 108-year curse over their heads.

These teams had an arsenal of pitchers, so they knew runs were going to be at a premium. Game 7 of the World Series was a wild one taking 10 innings to get a winner. Including a rain delay, the Cubs managed o get out the game with a win and a World Series title squeezing out an 8-7 win over the Indians. The curse was finally over and the Cubs bring back the championship. This game was meaningful to everyone Chicago fan or not, and everyone remembers where they were when the final out was thrown.

It brought happiness to a community that deserved it standing behind their team no matter what.

Moving into January, we have ourselves a colossal game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Clemson in the College Football Playoff Championship. The Tide had a star freshman QB and one of the best defenses in recent memory led by Nick Saban, Clemson had itself a good defense but they also had the best player in the country, QB Deshaun Watson. The defenses got tested and Clemson looked to Watson when the need one final touchdown drive for them to get revenge for their previous year's loss. Deshaun came through in the clutch throwing the game-winning pass with one second left on the clock. The Tigers came away triumphant winners by the score of 35-31. Deshaun got the title he missed out on last year and shredded the Bama defense, throwing for 420 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The championship games in the last 365 days show you why sports are sports. They're unpredictable, intense, and amazing to witness. I had fun watching these games and looking forward to better ones in 2017.
