There have been some good OT fanposts over the last week about miscellaneous subjects like baseball cards and worst losses. I thought I would offer one more (sorry if this has been done before).
What is the best sporting event you have ever attended?
I'll start it off with this one...the greatest game I attended was game 3 of the 1988 NBA Western Conference Finals (Mavs vs. Lakers). This was the first home game in the series for the Mavs (who were down 0-2 at the time). Reunion Arena was a madhouse. For those who never got to experience Reunion (Mavs or Stars), that place could get incredibly loud...American Airlines Center pales in comparison. Our seats were near the top of the arena but we were there. Reunion was insanely loud and only got louder with every Dallas basket. By the end of the game, my date (my future wife) and I were shouting to hear each other speak. The post-game was surreal. We were going back to my car and everyone was still shouting and cheering. We still talk about this one guy who shouted "BEAT L.A.!!!" from the foyer of Reunion all the way to the parking lot....the best part was you would hear people answering his call in the distance....we even chimed in a time or two.
I have been to some exciting games since but have never experienced an atmosphere more electric than that one.
So...let's hear it.
