Worst Sports Moments of 2003

From Bartman's bungled ball to Kobe Bryant's court case, Kidzworld looks at the Worst Sports Moments of 2003.

Dan Snyder Dies

The death of Atlanta Thrashers forward, Dan Snyder, in a car accident was a tragic start to the NHL season. Synder was killed when a car, driven by teammate Dany Heatley, veared off the road in September, 2003. Heatley survived, but suffered major injuries. The accident was a reminder that no matter how much money you make, you're never invincible. Heatley is expected to return to the Atlanta Thrashers before the end of the 2003-2004 season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Collapse

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went from Super Bowl champs to team tragedy in a matter of months. The team ended up cutting Pro-Bowl receiver Keyshawn Johnson and Warren Sapp spent more time making commercials than making plays. The Bucs finished the season with a disappointing 7-9 record and missed the playoffs.

Steve Bartman Bungles a Ball

Steve Bartman became the most hated man in Chicago since Al Capone, after knocking down a catchable foul ball, which would have brought the Chicago Cubs a step closer to their first World Series in nearly 60 years. Bartman's brain fart kept the myth of the Chicago Cubs Billy Coat Curse alive, which left fans saying, "wait until next year," yet again.

The Detroit Tigers Stink

The Detroit Tigers had one of the worst seasons in the history of baseball in 2003. The team struck out more times than a computer geek on prom night and finished with a dismal record of 43-119. Detroit players actually celebrated and drank champagne after finally winning their final game of the season, cuz it saved them from setting a new record for losses in a season.

Kobe Bryant Goes To Court
While the outcome of Kobe Bryant's rape trial probably won't be known for months, the whole episode is bad news for the NBA and sports in general. Even if Kobe Bryant doesn't go to jail, it will be a long time before he repairs the damage done to his wife, the Lakers and the NBA.

    Talk about your experiences on your journey to making it to the NBA if you share this dream, and how it is coming along from the beginning to now. I can offer some advice to help along the way whether it be effective workouts or how to excel in your school's basketball team.

    I do dabbing and like to toast bread. 4 time MVP all star dabber, named to the USA dabbing national team. I also toast some mean bread and have 100 Michelin Stars. I also play cricket on a horse, water polo on jellyfish, and do underwater hockey. Nothing too big
