In the last moments of 2011, Wagner's Kenny Ortiz produced the best buzzer beater of the year... and maybe the most incredible shot to win a game I have ever seen! Wagner was tied with Santa Clara 62-62. With time running out, Ortiz rebounds his teammate's miss that clanks off the side of the backboard. Falling out of bounds as the horn sounds, Ortiz shoots a rainbow over the backboard and somehow in for the gamewinner.
While the unbelievable shot is one thing, the other amazing element of this clip is the Santa Clara analyst screaming in psychotic denial that the shot should not count. At least I hope it's the Santa Clara analyst due to the tremendous broadcast journalism on display. This is one of the best blatant homer slash crazy person announcing rants you will ever hear, including swearing at the referees off mic, but loud enough for it to be picked up over the air...
Here's the glorious transcript:
"No, that's no good! That's no good! That's easy! No, no no no, that's no good! No good!"
(The refs count the basket)
(the analyst continues his rant presumably off mic)
"That's behind the basket! That's behind the basket! That's bullshit!"
No, that was awesome, and the perfect clip to end 2011 in style.

Wrong. Showtime is owned by the company formerly known as Viacom, CBS Corporation, which also owns CBS. The current Viacom is a subsidiary of CBS Corp.
@hamlinfan93 I was referring to the companies' current names. Regardless of whether one uses their current names or their former names, the article is incorrect.
It states, "Viacom is not exactly a stranger to MMA. After all, they own Showtime which broadcasts Strikeforce and M-1 Global cards as well as owning Bellator's current broadcast partner MTV2. But this fails to mention Viacom's biggest contribution to modern day MMA in the form of Spike TV."
The entity that owns Showtime is not the entity that owns Bellator, MTV2 or Spike TV.
@hamlinfan93 National Amusements is the parent of the "new" Viacom and CBS Corp.. Sumner Redstone is chair of both. Showtime was assigned to CBS Corp, while Spike to the "new" Viacom.
