List Your Favorite Sports Events of the Year.

  • March Madness
  • Opening Day / MLB
  • Playoffs & World Series / MLB
  • The Masters
  • Bowl Season / CFB
  • Playoffs / NFL

I enjoy the watching Super Bowl but it seems like the majority of the games never live up to the 2 week hype.  Don't get me wrong I still enjoy the parties, food, commercials, halftime bands and beer even if the game is a blow out.  It has truly become an event.

  • Super Bowl
  • MLB Opening Day 
  • Opening weekend of College Football/NFL
  • College Football Bowl Games
  • NFL Draft

List Your Favorite Sports Events of the Year.

1. Every Day that there is a Chiefs game on.

2. Every Day that there is a Jayhawks Game on.

3. Every Day that there is a Race at a Super-Speedway (IE Daytona, Indy, Talledega, Michigan)

4. Every Day that is a Jayhawk team in March Madness

5. Every Day that I get to see The Thrill of Winning (I.E. Jayhawks Natl Champs, Jayhawks vs. Mizzou) and the Agony of Defeat (26 Chiefs games the last 2 years)

6. The Day I got to "dress" my new truck with all of the Jayhawks and Chiefs emblems!!

 

(Dang I guess I am a sports junkie cause I also check out the finals in every sport, read the sports section first, and talk about sports constantly! And Yes I did miss 2 whole Chiefs games in 15 years in the front row. The day my son played in the Toy Bowl in Ks. and the day my Brother got married...I tryed to get them to switch the date to a road game but his wife got a little mad at me...lol)

Here's my top ten with a honorable mention;

1. Any playoffs/finals involving the Bruins/Pats/Celts/Sox.

2. Divisional round of Nfl playoffs - Generally 4 great games with 8 great teams.

3. First four days of March madness - So much gambling you don't even know if you are up or down until monday morning.

4. The Hamboltonian - 1.7 million dollar horse race at the Meadowlands.  1 minute and 50 second sprint to a 7 figure pay day.

5. Olympic Hockey - Really hope they don't go back to amatuers.

6. World Junior Hockey - Two weeks of afternoon drinking and Canada is always good.

7. World Cup of Soccer - The only tournament the whole world cares about.

8. Superbowl - National holiday.

9. Slam Dunk competition - Always fun to see what they pull out.

10. Regular season games involving the Bruins/Pats/Celts/Sox.
