Sports Bucket List:

Like many people in the sports industry I am very blessed (and jaded) to have experienced some amazing sporting events in my life.   I witnessed Robert Horry’s game winning shot at the buzzer to beat the Kings in game 4 of the Western Conference Finals after being down 24 points.  I’ve attended numerous MLB All-Star games, playoffs and opening days topped off by game 1 of the 1988 World Series where Kirk Gibson from the Dodgers hit his legendary home run off the A’s Dennis Eckersley.  After watching March Madness, I started thinking about all of the sporting events I want to go to with my son.  Some of which I’ve already attended, but many will be my first time too.  He is only 3 now so I’ve got some time, but it is never too early to start planning.  Here is my sports bucket list.  I’m sure I may have missed something so let me know what’s on your list.

  • Duke vs UNC basketball game at either school
  • Michigan vs Ohio State football game at the Big House (I’ve been to both for the big game, but as a Wolverine fan and Michigan native this will need to be in Ann Arbor)
  • The Masters – I’m told this is the toughest ticket in sports
  • Final Four – With one of my teams playing
  • Super Bowl – I’ve come close, but never made it to the big game
  • Baseball’s Hall of Fame – I never seem to be in upstate New York, but it will be worth the trek
  • Olympics – Preferably  wrapped into a Summer vacation
  • All 30 MLB stadiums – I’ve been to 19, but will need to start over with my son
  • A championship boxing match – There is nothing like the energy of a prize fight in Vegas
  • Game 7 of the World Series – Hopefully with the Tigers winning it all
