Re: I'm going to the World Series
That's awesome GIK - enjoy it - I count my single WS game attended as one of my favorite sports memories.
My father was able to land two tickets to Game 7 of the 2001 series. He told me he was going to scalp them if it came to that. I'm not a Dbacks fan, so I was only mildly paying attention to the series - but my dad called me on that Sunday morning while I was at work and asked if I wanted to go. After asking why he wasn't going to sell the tickets - he said "how many times in your life will you have a chance to go to a World Series Game Seven?" So we went, and it was probably the greatest Game 7 in World Series history, and I'll never forget it.
I had a friend that worked for the now defunt CNNSI - who got us tickets to Game 6 of the 1999 World Series in Atlanta - only to watch the Yankees sweep the Braves in four. Painful painful memory watching them celebrate the sweep while I plane was delayed in the airport, thinking it was one of my only shots to go to a world series.
That's one opportunity you never turn down.
