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

Plaxico Burress

Dear Mr. Burress,

         I am pittsports85 and have always been a fan of yours.  You are a very talented receiver, and have the potential to be top 5 in the league.  I am here today to ask you a few question.

      My first is what the hell are you doing?  The Giants just gave you a very generous contract of 5 years, 35 million dollars, and this is how you repay them?  

     First you skip a Monday team practice in October and the team cannot reach you for 2 days.  What were you doing?  The team has a right to know what you are doing when they are paying you $7 million a year.  If you had a family emergency, why didn't you contact the team and let them know?

Then you go on and miss a therapy treatment to help rehab your injury?  Why would you do that?  You are always injured and even if you were feeling better, you still should have went.  I hope you were in the other kind of therapy when you skipped this one, because you need it.

Then just last night you were at a night club with a loaded gun?  You have got to be kidding me.  Have you learned nothing from the Adam pacman Jones saga?  You are a celebrity, yes, but you are letting that go to your head.  You should not be carrying a gun around.  It is as simple as that.  And if it was a bad area, you shouldn't be there. 

I hope you can get your head straight, stop getting injured, and be the player we all know you can be.  Just please keep the gun at home, go to practice, and keep conditioned better because you are on a great team, and if you do this it will really help you into getting another super bowl ring.
