HBO, Sports Illustrated show wants stories about how sports moments impacted your life

HBO is partnering with Sports Illustrated to produce a documentary series called Sport in America that will explore major moments in sports and how they affected the lives of regular fans and those involved. The show will be “about how our nation’s most compelling sports moments have affected the lives of the people who watched them, and in turn shaped America’s character,” according to the network.

The series, subtitled “Our Defining Stories,” won’t air until 2013, but is soliciting videos of people’s “most memorable/significant sports memory.” Submitted videos are online, though you don’t have to make your video public to submit it, and producers will re-interview people with compelling stories.
