The forever silenced sound of a 90's-00's era CART/Champ Car.

Nothing beats that high-rev engine hum and turbo charged whine. The combination was auditory bliss.

Although some engines occasionally sounded like they were exploding when they downshifted. That was always kind of nasty... a totally awesome nasty.

Just can't beat it. F1 is too screachy.

I used to work for UPS and every now and then we'd get boxes with bowling pins in them. Best boxes to load ever. Because if you firmly place them down... delicious sound.

Listening to the quarterback's audible calls on tv.

The crowd eruption after a goal is scored in soccer.

From 10.20 onwards
Not the best example, but you get the point.

A few:

1-Swoosh in b-ball
2-One timer going off the pipe and in
3-The sound of a crisp pass hitting the blade of a stick (at live games its best especially when there is a lull in the crowd noise and you just hear the game being played)

Sounds I love to hear in sports:

1) The "whack" sound of a cricket ball knocking over the stumps
2) The "whack" sound of a well hit shot of a willow cricket bat on the ball
3) Formula 1 engines (the V10's sounded better, but I've only watched in the V8 era)
4) The sound of a scrum coming together in rugby

Sounds that make me cringe:

1) The sound of skate blades digging into the ice (funny I hate this one since I play and hear it all the time)
2) Subcontinent cricketers appealing for an LBW
3) Referee's whistles in the NFL (something about their pitch and tone makes my ears hurt as opposed to other types of whistles)
4) Basketball players' shoes squeaking on the hardwood
