QOTD 7/20/09 Must see sports events

What are the top 10 events in your opinion that are a must see before you die?
  I have seen a few of these lists written lately, so I thought I would chime in on the subject.  I may not have attended all (or any for that matter haha) but they are the top 10 events I want to see before I die.

  1. Stanley Cup Finals game- I have tried the past 2 years and have failed to get tickets both times.  The greatest sport in the world being played at its highest level.
  2. Official UFC event- I have just recently became a fan of UFC a few months ago, but I am already hooked and really wanna go to one of the events.  Hopefully they come to Pittsburgh when the new arena opens up!
  3. World Series game 7- I won't ever see one with my team, but it would still be amazing no matter who the teams are.
  4. NHL winter classic- After watching it on TV the last 2 years, it is a great sight to see.  I can't imagine how amazing it would be in person.
  5. baseball game on the green monster- This has been one thing I've always wanted to do.  I am not a Red Sox fan, but I haven't had a chance to visit a ballpark other than PNC and the view from the monster looks like it would be the best view of any seat in baseball.
  6. NCAA Basketball Final 4- Not a basketball fan by any means, but I always find myself watching the final 4, mostly because of my bracket but I can actually enjoy the tournament unlike the regular season and the NBA.
  7. US Open- I couldn't really enjoy watching golf until the past few years when I started golfing, but I guess to reallly enjoy golf you have to golf yourself to understand everything that is going on.
  8. Super Bowl- I have become less of a football fan each year, butI would still love to go to it sometime.  Most watched/overhyped sporting event there is.
  9. Home Run Derby- Well, only if I was in the outfield.  I was one of those young kids that loved bringing my glove to the game and trying to catch a ball!
  10. Pittsburgh Pirates game in October- To much to ask for? hahaha
