84 Reasons Why 1984 Was The Best Year Ever

As part of its 25th anniversary celebration, ESPN has decided that 1984 was the single greatest year of the ESPN era:

I’m talking about a year that appealed to everybody, one of those years that just had it going – sports, movies, TV, pop culture, music, comedy, goofy subplots – and you were never, ever, EVER bored. I’m talking about a groundbreaking year, with innovations just coming into their own, great actors hitting their stride, memorable rookies stepping onto center stage, maybe even some of the all-time legends making The Leap.

1984 is one of my favorite years, although I remember it for a lot more than just sports. I think it’s definitely the best year of the ‘80s as far as pop culture, movies, TV, and music goes, and since I’m pretty much stuck in the ’80s it follows that I would remember 1984 as my favorite year. I’m sure I could go on for a while about this, but that’ll have to wait for another time. What do you think; what’s your favorite year?
