    I'll start this thread with the most obvious...

    Just a few weeks earlier, this team was shellacked 10-3 in an exhibition against the team they were to face. The team they were facing was considered unbeatable, and was highly favored. NOBODY thought the team who ended up winning had ANY chance at all to even make it competitive. The result...

    Pats/Rams in the Super Bowl???? Every team has a chance. If the Chargers can run the ball and the Pats commit turn overs I think SD has a good chance of winning.

    I don't know where the frak it went but there was a video of the ultimate underdogs - the 1994 Chargers beating the heavily favored Steelers in their house "where the Steelers don't lose games"

    While I haven't found a video, I couldn't leave this one out.

    Biggest upset ever, Man O' War loses to 100 to 1 underdog, aptly named, Upset.

    This is what makes sports so great, without the chance of the upset, why watch? Never stop believing.

    Jethro Tull over Metallica (1989): Notoriously slow on the uptake, the Recording Academy didn't get around to adding a Heavy Metal Grammy until 1989. Even then, only two of the nominees made sense – Iron Maiden and Metallica. Def Leppard was one Aquanet can away from being a Hair Band, the Grateful Dead was hippie music, and prog-rock Jethro Tull was far too ponderous to be considered "hard," let alone "metal." Metallica was the obvious favorite. When it didn't, Jethro Tull was forced to accept its award under a shower of outraged boos. Meanwhile, in a "Dewey Wins!" turn, Metallica was saddled with thousands of "Metallica – Grammy winners" T-shirts. Tull's victory was so incongruous, it seemed the gods were punishing Metallica for its hubris. In 1992, when Metallica finally won the first of six Grammys, the '89 loss was not forgotten. In his acceptance speech, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich told the audience, "Thanks to Jethro Tull for not putting out an album this year."
