Re: Your coolest sports experiences
By far my greatest sports experience was attending the Game of the Century (2006 Ohio State/Michigan game) when Ohio State won 42-39. I was a student at the time.
I Stormed the field with everyone else and stared up at 105,000 people who had all witnessed the same thing that I had. It was a very surreal moment.
This was the last game with real grass so everyone was tearing up the field.
During the senior introductions before the game, I got the heisman chant going through the south end zone student section for Troy Smith.
Number 2 on the list would probably be my first baseball game with my dad when I was little. Got to meet Pete Rose and got his autograph. Even to this day, when you walk through that tunnel, and see the field and all the players...it's awesome.
I attended the infamous "Bush Push" game in 2005. My girlfriend went to school there and got me tickets about 3 rows up in the student section. I wore my buckeyes jersey to the game so whenever it is on ESPN classic you can see me in my white amongst a sea of yellow Notre Dame students. Before the game, some USC guys offered me $800 bucks for my ticket. I was tempted to say the least but I'm glad I kept it and saw what was an amazing game.
Next would be meeting Allen Iverson and getting his autograph at a Cavs/Sixers game during his rookie season.
I've also toured Daytona International Speedway. Got to ride around the track so that was pretty cool. I also met Rusty Wallace and got his autograph. He was always my favorite driver.
So to recap:
1. Game of the Century--2006 Ohio State/Michigan game
2. First Reds game with Dad--Met Pete Rose
3. The Bush Push
4. Meeting Allen Iverson
5. Daytona Int'l Speedway and meeting Rusty Wallace
This year, through my alumni tickets for Ohio State, I was lucky enough to get the Ohio State/Miami game so hopefully I will be able to add that to this list come September.
