The Top 10 Best Sports Moments of 2010, According to WSJ

Another list! But really, is there anything better to do on a snowy day than read year-end collections? NOPE.

Who picked San Francisco to win the 2010 World Series? You too? We put $4 down last March, and now we own a Bugatti Veyron powered by white truffles!

And only the Lakers have even a remote shot at beating them in a playoff series. They will never lose two games in a row this year. They have put together a much better roster than anybody could ever have expected. There is now no good way to defend them. They are unguardable. They are indefensible. They are just too good and have added so much shooting and are so versatile that they will score at will.” Read more
