Your sports bucket list

    Some of the posts on the Army-Navy thread suggest that the game is one of those things to do at least once in your life. My sports bucket list:
    --Watch a Premier League game in the stands after hanging out in a home-team bar before the game, and then hanging out in a home-team bar after the game.
    --Attending the Sugar Bowl (actually an adjunct to my overall bucket list item of wanting to party in New Orleans).
    --A road trip to several minor league ballparks.
    --Following Tiger Woods for a round of golf.
    --A day at Wimbledon.

    Just one: Attend a Super Bowl.

    Or unless I really come into some crazy money, follow the Texans around for an entire season.

    Too bad you'll have to leave town for that.

    Be careful of this one.

    I drank with Prem League fans of a certain team I like before, after and during a friendly here in the US this summer. Could. Not. Keep. Up. At. All. And boy did they let me know it. Even after the postgame drinking, they wanted to go clubbing. I bailed and hung my head in shame.

    Already seen the Braves play in the World Series twice, and seen Michigan in the Rose Bowl — although my team lost all three times — so the last on my bucket list among my teams is to see the Packers play in a Super Bowl one day. (Of course, they'd probably lose, too.)

    On the same token, haven't yet seen games at the Big House or Lambeau, so I have to get up there soon.

    Other sporting events high on my list:

    - A knockout game in the World Cup, preferably at a historic stadium somewhere
    - A Premier League game (don't care where, but preferably Old Trafford or Anfield or White Hart Lane)
    - An NPB game in Japan at Koshien Stadium, and one at the Tokyo Dome
    - Rangers-Bruins game at Madison Square Garden
    - Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs
    - Australian Open at Melbourne Park

    amazing to know that I have already knocked off many items on the buckets lists of others. I've been to Lambeau and Wrigley, followed Tiger for a round (though following Phil and Jon Daly were more impressive) and partied in NOLA. Go me.

    My list is a premiership game (preferably at Emerites though Anfield would be interesting just to see 45,000 people sing "You Never Walk Alone")
    Warroad vs Roseau hockey
    Milan basketball
    first round NCAA basketball games
    Saturday night game at LSU

    Also I want to have season tickets to a team I care about. Doesn't matter what sport, but just to be there in person for each home game of a season. I'm not even sure it would matter if it was a good season or a bad one. I just want to see the way the year would unfold.
