    There's a lot of great speeches in sports, which one would be your favorite?

    For me it's the Farewell speech of Lou Gehrig and it's not even close. It brings me chills everytime I listen to it. It was 70 years ago yesterday that he delivered this speech at Yankee Stadium.

    you know, when I saw the thread title that speech is what immediately came to mind. I don't think anything else really compares.

    Yeah, I agree. When I saw this thread that's the speech I thought of when I saw this thread. I can't think of a better sports speech.

    Ditto for me. It was pretty much the only one that sprung to mind.

    Lou's speech was timeless.

    Didn't Ali make an amazing speech later on in his life?
