    Re: 101 things all sports fans must experience before they die

    Boy I sure need to get some stuff done
    ;D

    1. Summer Olympics (every four years in a different city). (Atlanta)
    72. Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (August in Sturgis, S.D.). (Twice - Old man grounded me the first time
    ;D)
    82. Minnesota high school hockey tournament (March, Minnesota). (1977 I think)
    88. "Monday Night Football" (September-December, various NFL cities). (Last year)
    91. Little League game (spring, early summer, everywhere). (To many to count.
    Both my kids played and I managed after they moved on)
    100. A Harlem Globetrotters game (many dates, many cities). (They come here to Va every 3 or 4 years or so.)
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    He has the Calgary Stampede, but not the World Famous Bucking Horse Sale in Miles City, Montana.
    Town ball in Minnesota #40.
    What about Walleye fishing in Minnesota, any type fishing for that matter.

    These are events for sports fans to attend, not participate in.
    You must admit that fishing as a sport is insanely boring for spectators.

    .....yet people watch bowling, curling, other mind-numbing sports.
    Personally, I don't mind watching a good fishing show...but, that only counts as an event when I'm on acid.

    Huge difference between bowling, curling and fishing.
    In the first two, you can see the action (however mind-numbing you may find it) as it happens.
    In fishing, the action is all happening below the surface.
    So you're basically watching a guy standing, holding a pole.
    Weeeeee.

    I bet you can stand there holding your pole and you enjoy it, only lasts for a few seconds, but, enjoyable nonetheless.

    If holding your pole is a sport, I am the Michael Jordan of it. ;D

    He forgot "Seeing your team win a Championship".
    If I could witness the Vikes win a SuperBowl, all the other things on that list would be second-rate to me.
