3. 1999 Women's World Cup
How good was the '99 World Cup run? Brandi Chastain wasn't just a penalty-kick hero, but the Sports Illustrated cover of her the following week, with her jersey ripped off to expose her celebrating in a sports bra, is perhaps the most iconic image in the history of women's sports in America. The march was among the most visible in U.S. history, in part because it all unfolded on our home turf. (AP File Photo/Mark J. Terrill)
