Parsippany Fight Club, Part 2

In the above position, after 27. Bd2 Kh8 28. Ba5??, how many ways does black have to win?  This is what I contemplated for about 20 minutes after missing the move(s) and letting the win slip away along with my team's chances of winning the U1800 title.  Excuse me while I bang my head against the table for awhile.

...Ne3 (also threatening the Queen) or ...Nf4, threatening mate by ...Qxg2# and ...Rxd1+, is pretty deadly.
Indeed so. Strangely, I spent 20 minutes or so looking at ...Nb6 and ...Nc7, but the right moves never occurred to me.
