Ok, I know we have some sports fans out there, I'm interested in hearing your favorite memories of events involving your favorite sports teams or games you attended. You can also list the most painful.
I have quite a few great memories.
in 1987 after the Twins won the American League in Detroit, the team flew back to Minnesota late at night to a fully Metrodome, the place was going crazy waving Homer Hankies everywhere, just a cool moment, in addition to that, I was at Game one of the World Series the next week with my dad.
In 1996, I went with my dad and stepmom to Augusta, Georgia for the practice rounds of The Masters. That alone would be amazing for a golf fan, but one of the days possibly the three greatest players ever were in one group, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods, I got to watch them play the 13th hole and a few others.
spring of 1997, was my final year living at home in Minnesota. My dad and I would go to almost every U of Minnesota men's basketball game from the time I was 3 til 18. It was one of the few times we did things together. That season, the Gophers went to the Final Four, but before they got there, we went to Kansas City for the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament where they won, then once they advanced to the Final Four, we drove to Indianapolis and had they won their game, the national championship game would have been my 18th birthday.
As for most painful watching one of my teams play. The 1998 NFC Championship game when the Vikings lost to the Falcons in overtime...
Sorry for the long first post, lets hear your memories
