* The Wild Card berthed 2004 Red Sox's backs were against the wall in the 2004 ALCS they lost to their hated rivals the Yankees the night before to a whopping ''19-8'' at this point the Red Sox were going on an 86 year drought of no World Series titles. All hope was lost for Game 4 Rivera was brought in to shut the Red Sox down, until pinch runner Dave Roberts stole 2nd base, Bill Miller shot a single into center making sure Roberts made it to home tying the game. The game went on for 3 more innings till David Ortiz shot a ''Moonshot'' to right field winning the game keeping the Sox alive. The Red Sox managed to come back from a ''3-0 deficient'' the first and only MLB team to do this and ended ''Winning the World Series'' ending the 86 year Curse of the Bambino

*** Then Strong Bad and Homestar appeared at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0m-k6qZMx8 the opening of w00tstock 2013]]. While the clip that was provided was not animated, it was clear that the sense of humor was still very much the same as it was years before, and the intorduction - a slow zoom-out from a fez to reveal Strong Bad wearing it, all set to ''[[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Also Sprach Zarathustra]]'' - recieved roaring cheers from the audience.

* From Day 1 of the 2008 World Series of Poker Main event, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XunAlp2azhA perhaps the most unbelievable bad beat in tournament history]]--four Aces losing to a Royal Flush.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1l_sOZvXNg This hand from the final table from the 2010 World Series of Poker main event.]] Matthew Jarvis went all-in on pocket nines against Michael Mizrachi's suited Ace-Queen. The favorite going into the flop, Jarvis found himself behind after the flop revealed two Queens and an eight, giving Mizrachi a set of Queens. Then the Turn card was a nine, giving Jarvis a full house (Nines over Queens), and if THAT wasn't enough, the River Card was the Ace of Spades, giving Mizrachi an even better full house (Queens over Aces), and knocking out Jarvis in eighth place.

* This is more of a "look who had a wargaming past"/"one of us"-type "win", but when he was growing up in Birmingham, England, a bespectacled boy was passionate about wargaming. He also took up playing music and later became one of the biggest pin-up teen idol figures of the 1980s. His name? John Taylor of {{Duran Duran}}. Thus proving that a wargaming kid can grow up to be the object of many girls' fantasies.

* To be fair, [[LegendOfTheFiveRings L5R]] is far from the only CCG with awesome characters. However, if all you have to go by are the art and snippets of flavor on the cards themselves (rather than being able to also draw upon extensive [[AllThereInTheManual secondary sources]]), then deciding what is or isn't a proper CMOA isn't always easy. That said, I'm reasonably sure that [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=143607 this little guy]] is having one right there...

* ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'', being an Asian heroic fantasy setting, with over ten years of a continuous storyline, is of course chock-full of them, with most factions within the game having gotten several. Among the characters that have gotten the most:
