One of my favorite moments, being able to see Malone and Stockton before they retired

This was when the Kings were one of the West's best.

I use to have seasons tickets to the Oilers so ive been to a lot of there games. Now i try to get to 1-2 games a year. Just too expensive. Likewise I use to have season tickets tothe Eskimos too. But there games are about as much fun to be at as a drywall plant so i cancelled them.

I have been to the Seahawks vs Coyboys for MNF a few years ago. And the season earlier to the Seahawks vs Browns game.

I went to a Bluejays game about 10 years ago, for there season home opener against the Angels.

Some Falcons games, some Braves games, some Georgia Tech games, a couple of UGA games, a couple Hawks games, and a couple Thrashers games. Anything local really. I'll be going to the Jags/Chargers game in Jacksonville on Nov. 18th, so that's exciting. I'd LOVE to make it to an LSU game or few at some point, but I never have.


I also went to an Olympic event when they were held here in '96. But I was like 9 years old and it was swimming so I really didn't give a ****, lol. Olympic festivities are so much fun though. The actual competitions are nothing compared to the ceremonies and activities you can participate in.

Countless Eagles and Sixer and Phillies regular Season Games, also went to a couple of Eagles away games in Washington or in the Meadowlands.

Notable Games:

2007 NLDS game 2 where Phillies got beat by the Rockies

2002 Eagles NFC Divisional Game against Atlanta

2002 Eagles NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay (worst loss I ever witnessed)

2004 Eagles NFC Championship Game against Atlanta (After parties were just bananas)

2006 Eagles NFC Wildcard Game last year against the Giants


Could have went to the NFC Divisional game where the infamous 4th and 26 took place against Greenbay, but g/f at the time was pulling a guilt trip because it was her birthday so I ended up giving my ticket to a friend.......

Been to plenty.

Most notable (for me anyway)

Superclasico (football): Boca Juniors Vs Riverplate (one of the most famous/infamous games in world football) Att.70,000 screaming Argie football hooligans

All Ireland Semi finals 2002 (Gaelic Football): Dublin Vs Armagh. Att. 85,000. electric atmospher. "Game of the Decade". Dublin lose by one point when the free taker hits the post in the last second :(

All Ireland Semi Finals 2006 (Gaelic Football): Dublin Vs Mayo Att.85,000. "Game of the Decade". In typical Dublin fashion we blow a 7 point lead (big in GAA) and lose by 1 point. :( (what made it worse was i bought the ticket off a scalper and was in a Mayo section getting poked by this inbred muck savage yelling " we ve got ye now boy!"

countless white sox/cubs games because the camp I went to/worked for for 10 years always went to baseball games for field trips.

A lot of bulls games, mainly in the Jordan era, although the seats were never that spectacualar and even had to stand in the very last row a couple times because tix were so damn expensive. I got somewhat good seats for my bday though :D

was that the series Horry hit that 3 at the buzzer? One of the greatest shots/sequence of events I had ever seen after Jordan.

I miss the Laker/Kings rivalry, was definitely a great era of basketball

yes that was game 4 when Vlade knocked the ball out to Horry instead of trying to grab the rebound. I miss that rivalry too, it was a lot of fun, especially being a Lakers fan living in Sacramento lol. I could never figure out why so many Kings fans had no problem with Kobe but they hated Shaq.

So far, I have gone to 5 Home Nets games and still hoping for more. This year I hope to get more tickets, feel free to talk bout how it was and your experience.

1st game - Nets vs Pistons - For our marketing class, we got to go on a field trip to the nets game. We left the school at around 5 and arrived at the arena shortly after. Since it was a field trip, we got to go underneath the arena and talk with the Nets corporate men like the radio announcers for the Nets etc. While seated, we see Jason Kidd pass literally 10 feet behind where we sat. We were pumped. We go up to the arena and since this was my 1st game it was nuts. The whole atmosphere seeing carter, kidd etc. Pistons ended up winning and the ride back I was mad happy. We sat upper level but still the arena is small.

2nd game - Nets vs Suns Double OT game - Now this game I wouldve never expected to go to. My freinds teacher told my friend that his brother has season tickets and he couldn't go to the Suns game that night so he gave my friend 2 tickets to the Suns game, lower level seats. Me nd my friend ended up going , all psyched up because my frineds favorite player is Amare. We get to the arena and we are one of the first to be there. We take our seats, behind the backboard but we can see everythign since we are so close. we take our seats and since I had my camera, we were 1 feet away from the court and taking vids nd pics. IT was so unreal seeing nash and amare just shooting jumpers and stuff. THe game spoke for itself since it went up to 161-157 or something liek that. IT was so back and forth cant believe I witnessed this game Below are the videos i took:

We had to wait for my pops for like 30 mins in the freezing cold because he couldn't find his way but it was well worth it. We got close enough to Amare because he was underneath us getting hyped up and we kept screaming his name and he acknowledged us so that was cool.

3rd game - Nets vs Celtics
I got these tickets from the basketball team, upper level but still good. I went with Silky. He was all pumped up since Pierce would be playing. We get to the arena on time, get some sorta dog tag, and head to our seats. THe game was up and down and finnaly the game got killed once Paul Pierce hit the game winner by the three point line i think it was. We all were shocked and we left mad confused haha. Still a hella game.

4th game - Nets vs Pistons
Went with the friend who took me to the SUns game. It was a hella boring game but we didnt even notice Rip Hamiliton scoring like 40 ish points. It was boring and the Pistons ended up winning. Rasheed didnt play but he was shooting before the game started. He was shooting lefty half court shots with ease and Making them!!!! Still a game none the less.

5th game - Nets vs Pacers
Got these tickets from a friend from school. I went with my brother since I didnt have a ride and he was the only one who could bring me. They were lowel level seats and we ended up gettin there on time. It was a decent time for much of a deplated Pacers lineup. All I remember is Harrington scorching it up. Decent game.
