* In the 1999 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills started Doug Flutie who had returned to the NFL after a successful career in Canada. Coupled with a strong defense, Flutie had clinched a playoff berth before the last game was played, and his backup Rob Johnson played an excellent game to close out the season. The following week, Johnson remained the starter (though no one will take credit for that decision) and lost to Tennessee on one of the biggest miracle plays in NFL history. To double the sting, the Bills ''haven't made the playoffs since.'' It's still a sore enough subject to start arguments in a Buffalo bar.

* With 12 seconds left in the first half of SuperBowl XVIII, the (at the time) Los Angeles Raiders were leading the defending champion Washington Redskins 14-3 and had pinned Washington deep in their own-territory. During an earlier meeting that previous October, the Redskins managed to pull off a screen pass from quarterback Joe Theismann to running back Joe Washington that gained 67 yards. So assistant coach Charlie Sumner replaced starting linebacker Matt Millen (yes, '''THAT''' Matt Millen) with little-used backup Jack Squirek, who was assigned to cover Washington man-to-man. The result was Squirek making a leaping interception and landing in the end-zone for a touchdown that basically broke the Redskins' backs.

* First overall draft pick Drew Bledsoe had been the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots for seven years and was arguably the best quarterback the franchise ever had. Then in the second game of the 2001 season, he was hit by Jets linebacker Mo Lewis, shearing a blood vessel in his chest. Who steps in? Second-stringer and sixth round draft pick Tom Brady, who would then lead the Patriots to four Superbowl wins.

* [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] is an avid baseball player, but he can't seem to do anything right, not even hold a 50 run lead with one out left when Peppermint Patty puts him in after he's sold some peanuts. (Once again, the keyword is "somehow": We cut from Patty getting hit by Charlie's 2nd pitch, to her waking up in bed and finding out from Marcie that their losing streak is still intact.)

* A ''FreaksAndGeeks'' episode has Bill urging Coach Fredricks to put him and his fellow geeks on the gym-class baseball team. They get their wish...and find their side getting shelled before the first inning is over.

* In ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'', the Devil Bats play against the Yuuhi Guts during the Fall Tournament, only to find the coach has replaced the regular line-up with ringers from the other sports teams at Yuuhi High School. After the Devil Bats manage to gain a strong lead anyway, the coach reluctantly sends in the regular lineup, who fail to make a comeback, but still put up a good fight (this is even more pronounced in the manga, when it's the regulars who score Yuuhi's only touchdown against Deimon instead of the ringers).

* Averted in Game 5 of the 2015 World Series. New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey seemed to be on his way to one of the greatest postseason pitching performances of all time, pitching eight shutout innings against the Kansas City Royals. Harvey argued with manager Terry Collins to be allowed to finish the game, even though he had passed the 100-pitch mark. Upon coming back out for the ninth, Harvey promptly gave up a leadoff walk to Royals outfielder Lorzeno Cain. Harvey was then pulled after giving up a double to infielder Eric Hosmer, which scored Cain. Hosmer scored the tying run, and sent the game in to extra innings. The Royals then put up five runs in the twelfth, and then held on to win the game, and since they had already won three of the previous four games, they won the series.
