Was Jean Van de Velde's Collapse at Carnoustie 10 Years Ago the Biggest Meltdown in Sports History?
Jean Van de Velde stepped to the 18th tee at Carnoustie needing just a double freaking bogey to win the British Open. In other words, he had SIX STROKES to finish a hole he'd played three times, at minimum, already that week. And he still managed to need seven, with the final one being a somewhat "heroic" putt that got him way too excited. It's simply an incredible video and if you care about seeing awkward suffering that doesn't harm anyone who's not French, then I highly recommend it. (Via the inimitable Ryan Wilson at FanHouse)
I also highly recommend someone trying to find a bigger sports meltdown in the history of the world.
