This weekend marks the 17th anniversary of the most disappointing sports moment I ever witnessed. The days of the week line up this year too. It was Sunday, November 4, 2001, that the Arizona Diamondbacks completed their seven-game series win over the three-time defending champion New York Yankees. Following September 11 everyone was rooting for New York, but despite the many heroics in that series, the final result was not meant to be.
It would be eight more years until they won another championship.
And they haven’t won another since.
