Sporting Events Bucket List
 
What are the top 3 sporting events you would love to attend live before you go to those box seats in the sky?

I'll start

1. Men's (or Women's) Final at Wimbledon
2. The Kentucky Derby
3. A Championship Boxing Title Fight

1. Super Bowl, hopefully skins are there ( I have actually been to a SB in Jan 1973 but I was in my mommy's belly at the time)
2. Lambeau Field
3. A whole weekend during the Dayton race

DEFINITELY Super Bowl and I agree with you about Lambeau Field. I'd really love to see a Skins game at RFK if that could happen...

I'm not sure I'd want to actually be at the Super Bowl if the Skins were there. I'd prefer to enjoy that game from the comfort of my own home with my buddies. Unless I had amazing seats

1. Man United/Liverpool at Old Trafford
2. Start/Finish line at Talladega
3a. Fenway Park for Sox/Yanks in September (I'm an O's fan, but this is just classic)
3b. Wrigley Field Bleachers, catching a Prince Fielder home run and throwing it back

For those that say Fenway, I have probably been to that stadium more then any other stadium in my life time. I say over a 100 times. I will have to say it is kind of a pit compared to say Camden Yards. I imagine Lambaeu is much the same but it is for the history of the game and I get that as well.

To SS33 been to the old Garden many times as well. Saw Bird play Jordan on a Sunday afternoon, it was so awesome. I went with a youth group and we got there really early and they let us in. Joe Kline was warming up and I yelled his name he looked right at me I said you suck. Which he did, in those days he was always the Celtics momentum killer when he came in the game.

Wow...narrowing it down to 3 is tough, so I'll be a jerk and not even really try:

1. Michigan v. Ohio State at The Big House
2. World Cup Final (very well could happen, I'm planning on Brazil in 2014)
3. Super Bowl (preferably not the Skins)

4. Barca v. Real Madrid Clasico
5. Lambeau Field
6. Iron Bowl
7. Arsenal v. Man U at The Emirates
8. Wrigley Field afternoon game
9. Yanks and Saux at Fenway

If you can't tell, I've actually thought about this quite a bit. Actually, a buddy of mine and I have discussed taking 1 trip a year to a different college football stadium for a rivalry game.

Yep, for me it's strictly history. Camden Yards is still my favorite ball park, but I'm a fan of the game and would love to take in games at Fenway and Wrigley.

Uncomfortable wooden seats, no dance team, no lasers/light show, many banners in the old rafters.....I went down to the floor after the game and got to walk out on the floor.....it was awesome.

If the Bruins and C's were both deep in the playoffs there was always a issue of fogging when they put the ice down for the B's. I think the place never had true air conditioning.
