  tpstar: Here's an interesting (read: unsound) piece sacrifice in the Danish Gambit. It prevents Black from castling, but otherwise not much compensation for White:

JCYC-tpstar (FICS 10/14/07): 1. e4 e5 2. d4 ed 3. c3 dc 4. Bc4 cb 5. Bxf7+!? Kxf7 6. Qb3+ Ke8 7. Bxb2 Qe7 8. Nd2 Nf6 9. e5 Nc6 10. Ngf3 Ng4 11. 0-0 Qb4 12. Ng5!? Qxb3 13. axb3 Be7 14. Nge4 Rg8 15. h3 Nh6 16. Rae1 Kd8 and Black won (0-1).
