Re: Sporting events you've been to in person??

Get out more Mo. The only things you really remember are the finals of anything. I have seen 2 "clinchers" plus a Super Bowl, just haven't seen one I really want which is a team getting the Stanley Cup. Plus I saw a Final Four, a bunch of Rose Bowls, Summer and Winter Olympics, a World Cup final, plus a bunch of other stuff I doubt others care much about.

I know you most here aren't big hockey fans, but the most intense event I ever saw was the Stanley Cup Finals game a couple years ago in Anaheim. Playoff hockey is insane, but a Finals game which is scoreless until late in the 3rd period is off the charts. You don't even have to be a big fan of either team, just the nervous energy there is unlike anything you will ever see in sports.

Re: Sporting events you've been to in person??

i've been at alot of "stuff", but i was at the 2007 afc championship game where the colts came back to beat the pats in indy. i can't imagine a sporting experience being any better or more intense than that. it was un-fucking-real. hard to imagine a sporting event eclipsing it.

Re: Sporting events you've been to in person??

Masters in 95 when Crenshaw won and 96 when Norman shot 78 in final
rd after leading by I believe 6 shots

Practice rds are better than attending the tourney itself and the food
is really affordable

Ya dont really see on TV how hilly the course truly is

i take it you're an indy guy who relocated to houston?

i'm an indy guy who lived in dallas for a while.. and san diego & manhattan... i caught a colts/chargers game in sd and a few rangers & padres games, but i tried to avoid the beatdown i'd have gotten in texas & NYC for flying my true colors. a lack of money helped me uphold my puss-ass philosophy... tho i did go to the packers/redskins game in green bay last season & wore my colts jersey to the game just for the fuck of it (girlfriend was a GB fan... my hypocrisy only goes so far).

NFL - Chicago, Minnesota, Green Bay, Indianapolis
MLB - Cubs, Milwaukee, St. Louis
NBA - Milwaukee, Minnesota, saw the Olympic team play in Vegas (trials)
NCAAF - Wisconsin
NCAABB - Marquette
PGA - 7 day pass for the PGA Championship in 2004 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. Went to the FBR Open for 1 day (sat.) this year at the TPC Scottsdale in Arizona.

When i went to the Colts game a few years ago ('99-2000, just looked, i still have the program for the HS game), on that Friday we went to a high school game in Bloomington. Bloomington North vs Franklin Central. Jared Jeffries was a Senior, Scott May junior, Sean May sophmore. Errek Suhr was the starting point guard as a freshman, played with 1 arm, i think he had a broken arm or hand i don't remember. Hoosiers fans know of him I'm sure, energenic crazy man. That was awesome to watch, almost no fans there, sat right at halfcourt, front row.

Re: Sporting events you've been to in person??

ones of note - been to many games - but these are the most special ones

Feb 24, 1983 - the GREATEST Sporting event I have ever been to....in front of 5.005 people in a 4,100 seat Gym Cal State Fullerton 86, #1 and unbeaten UNLV 78. we all stormed the court with about 2 seconds left. i was mentally exhausted after the game. i would pay just about anything for a good copy of the game - but sadly sense it will never happen - bummer

1992 - Winter Olympics.....saw the Men's Figure Skating Finals, a 1,500 Franc (less than $300 US at the time) ticket for most but i got in for free

1992 Olympics - the FIRST USA/USSR Men's Ice Hockey rematch since the 1980 "Miracle in Ice" - the 2nd greatest sporting event i have ever been to - you had to be there to experience the game - it was the SEMIS meaning the winner played for Gold. USA tied it @ 2 late in 2P and the place went NUTSO. USSR scored 2 in 3P though

2000 - Pro Bowl. shitty boring game but i won a free trip to HI so who the hell cared about the game - we left after 1Q

2002 - Angels/Giants G7 of the World Series. i recall in t* it got loud, then in B8 it got even louder and in T9 it got even louder and when Darin Erstad caught the final out it got even louder. i have Goose BUmps just thinking about it. been to many playoff games

2003 - Ducks/Satans - G4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Ducks won 1-0 on an OT goal a few minutes in. Been to many playoff games - NOTHING better than playoff hockey
