  • 1986 - Robin Yount doesn't even show up to claim his OSNY for Best Shortstop Turned Outfielder, like any cares who Robin Yount is
  • 1999 - The 90's are brought to a stirring close as the Stone Temple Pilots deliver a stirring 23-minute long rendition of "Plush"
  • 2002 - The OSNY's honor the victims of 9/11 by renaming every award, including "Best Team Since The Events Of 9/11" and "Teammates That Best Exemplify Spirit Of The Twin Towers"
  • 2005 - The entire New York Yankees roster stands on one stage to be laughed at and mocked for blowing a 3-0 series lead in the ALCS the year before
  • 2009 - Willie Mays receives 336 standing ovations, setting the record for the most standing ovations in a single sports awards show
  • 2010 - MMA champ Shane Corwin chokes out SportsDome anchor Alex Reiser on the red carpet
