8 of the Most Ridiculous Sports Losses of All Time

Lopsided games, games that went downhill for the strangest of reasons, and stupid mistakes that led to failure, all are profiled in these losses in a variety of sports. Take, for example, the 1940 championship game between the Chicago Bears and the Washington Redskins. The Bears won, 73-0!

The coaches George Halas and George Preston Marshall hated each other from way back. Before the game Marshall called the Bears quitters and cry babies. He also sent Halas a telegram saying how happy he was the Bears had made it to the final so the Redskins would have another chance to beat them. You see, shortly before the championship game the Bears had lost to the Redskins 7-3. Halas was pissed and worked his team up into a winning frenzy. Less than a month later they would deliver a 73-0 thrashing, all thanks to Marshall’s trash talk.

Notre Dame vs. Army at Army. 1973. First time since 1913 that Notre Dame faced Army at Army.

End of the first half, Army 3, Notre Dame 0.

End of the game, Army 3, Notre Dame 62.

62 points in one half. It was quite awesome to watch. Willie Fry was amazing.
