One of the few direct comparable sporting events to Game 6's ending was the Champions League Final in 1999. In fact, one of the European Hawks (either Frolik, Oduya, or Handzus) mentioned that one immediately after the Cup-around-the-ice ceremony. I love soccer partly because it doesn't utilize that one word that has ruined baseball, football, and basketball for me: "TIME OUT!"
@admused I watched that happen in 1999. Threw a beer can at the TV, stomped off to the store to get a bottle of gin, my brother and I didn't exchange a word until we were halfway down it. Have never seen either goal since. That's how much that upset me.
But you're dead right: it was more or less a carbon-copy
