The third match up in the Robinson region features a game winning homerun from Adam Jones as a 6 seed, facing off against the great moment coming in as a 3 seed: O.J. Brigance’s speech to the Ravens after winning the AFC Championship Game in New England.
#6 – Adam Jones Game Winning Home Run Against Phillies
After dropping game one of the three game series, the Orioles rallied back in game two. They took a lead into the eight inning when, ironically enough, Jim Thome tied the game at 4-4 for Philadelphia. It was Adam Jones’ walkoff bomb in the 12th that helped propel the O’s to victory.
#3 – O.J. Brigance Speaks To Team After Winning AFCCG
In one of the best moments after the Ravens defeated the New England Patriots to advance to Super Bowl XLVII, former player and part of the Ravens 2000 championship team, O.J. Brigance delivered an emotional speech to the Ravens in the locker room while presenting the Lamar Hunt trophy for their victory.
Brigance, confined to a wheelchair while he battles the devastating disease known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, said this to his team while millions watched courtesy of CBS Sports cameras.
“Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens. Your resiliency has outlasted your adversity. You are the AFC Champions. You are my mighty men. With God, all things are possible.”
