10 Sports Things To Do Before I Die

Christy Hammond asks her readers to make a list of sports-related things they want to do in their lifetime. Here are mine.

Some of my highlights already include being at a bunch of Vancouver Canucks playoff games, this year's Canucks road trip to Alberta, being at the Canada-US World Junior Hockey Championships game this past December, and working the NHL All-Star game in Vancouver in 1998 (and helping Glen Sather and John Muckler find their seats).

Some more I want to add to the list are:
  1. To watch the Vancouver Canucks win the Stanley Cup
  2. With the Leafs on the other end of the ice
  3. To be a part of the Winter Olympic games (can't wait for 2010!)
  4. To watch a Duke vs. North Carolina basketball game
  5. To watch an NHL game in every NHL city (3 down, 27 to go)
  6. To watch an NBA game in every NBA city (6 and counting)
  7. To see Steve Nash win an NBA championship
  8. To experience at least one of the great non-North American sports events (ie. running of the bulls in Spain, Tour de France, European soccer or Australian Rules Football)
  9. To attend a US college football game
  10. To interview an NHL player for this blog

Make sure you stop by Christy's and share your list.

Whenever you do go to a US college football game, there is only one place you can go for your first time. And that's the Big House. There is nothing like 110,000+ fans going crazy (especially if you get tickets in the student section, which are really easy to get). Ideally, try to go to an OSU vs. Michigan, Notre Dame vs. Michigan, or MSU vs. Michigan for the best time. :)

Notre Dame still around? :p

I'll have to remember that. I've never been to Michigan and could possibly do the trifecta - Pistons, Wings and some college football!
