    JC ragging on me on the Wimbledon thread gave me this idea... And before anyone gets the idea that I might be bragging, remember that my print journalism career ended over a year ago... But I know there are some veterans who have covered a hell of a lot more than I have and I'm curious to see who has covered what at some point during their careers.

    Super Bowls - 1
    Olympics - 2 (Atlanta, Sydney)
    NCAA Tournaments - more than I can count
    Bowl games - more than I can count
    Stanley Cup Finals - none
    NBA Finals - none
    Tour de France - none, but several Tour de Trumps and Tour duPonts! Did big features on Lance and LeMond. Counts for something, right?
    World Cup - none
    World Series - one, and a variety of other playoff games.
    Grand slam golf - none
    Grand slam tennis - none. Lots of tennis when both tours stopped here but no grand slams
    Boxing champiosnhip match - Lots with Pernell Whitaker, including the robbery against Julio Cesar Chavez in San Antonio in 1993.

    Two Daytona 500s and more races than I can count. And, no, I'm STILL not the AP Mike Harris.
    One Preakness Stakes. Attended but did not cover a Kentucky Derby

    A career built around college sports but with plenty of variety thrown in there. Zero complaints. My career bucket list includes two things I didn't get to cover: The Masters and the Kentucky Derby. I at least attended the Derby (in 1973, Secretariat's year).

    Super Bowls - none (but a handful of NFL Wild Card & Divisional games)
    NBA Finals - none, but only because my ethically-challenged SE gave what should have been my credential to one of his buddies the one year the local team made it (ton of NBA playoff games, though).
    Grand slam tennis - none, although did hit the now-defunct local ATP stop once
    Indianapolis 500s - 13
    Brickyard 400s - 12
    State basketball championships - 10
    NCAA Tournaments - one Women's Final Four, lots of Big Ten men's & women's tournaments
    State baseball/softball/other championships - too many to count
    County fair demolition derby - 8 times more than I would have liked, so 8
