Well, I should find out some of the damage fees by the end of the week. Going to closing on the refinance of the house at that time too. The timing is just...

The Indians have almost slammed the door on the Red Sox. I wouldn't count out Boston just yet, but it's looking pretty slim for them at this point.

What's up with you?

Ohh, best sporting event I've attended... hmm

Browns vs. Pats playoff game from 94, we won 20-13 and it was about -10 degrees.

QOTD: Game 4 last night. It was a great atmosphere. People in this town are so excited about this team.

Others:
Game 4 of the Cavs-Pistons series in 2006 (the "Guaran-Sheed" game)-the Cavs won a nailbiter to even up the series after Sheed guaranteed a win.

Browns 2002 v. Falcons-The Browns beat the Falcons to give them a chance at the playoffs (which they got when the Jets won later that day). The only time the new stadium has ever matched the old stadium for excitement.

Dayton over Xavier in 1999-The Flyers upset a ranked Xavier team and our student section (including yours truly) stormed the court.

We won that game because the announcer said that the Saints had lost, which clinched the playoffs for the Falcons about 45 times in the final 2 mins, that. If he said it one more time!!! LOL

I was at that game, and another memory, bottlegate against Jacksonville. I have never feared for my life at a game until that one.

QOTD - Tough one. Tossup between any of the Steeler playoff games I've attended, the 2006 MLB All Star Game in Pittsburgh or the 1992 Pirate playoff game I attended (beat Glavine and the Braves 3-2).

QOTD: Definitely the 1989 Iron Bowl. I was only 11 at the time, but I vividly remember Auburn being crazy that whole weekend for the first Iron Bowl in Auburn. After that, probably the 2004 Auburn-Georgia game when Auburn was close to finishing off the undefeated season.

QOTD: I've got a few

UT beating Florida 20-17 in overtime 1998: Never before had I been worried about the stability of Neyland. The entire stadium was shaking.

UT beating Florida in basketball in 2005: The loudest I've ever heard it at the arena

UT beating Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 5 overtimes in 2003: I'd never been so exhausted after a football game ever in my life.

QOTD: Game 1 1988 World Series - Dodgers vs A's - the Gibson HR. Unreal - I have a great, but long story that goes with it. I was 7 years old.

Yeah.... Didn't attend that game though. Just sat at my house cursing Barry Bonds for throwing a lollipop to home.

for me it was in july 1991. I was at dodger stadium when Dennis Martinez threw his no hitter.

QOTD... really have never been to any real "game of note".. best game I ever went to was a Mets/Cards game last year... my g/f got me the tickets.. of course the Cards started pounding on the Mets (King Albert had 2 HR's, one a granny).. so I am sitting there, & turn to my g/f and say "thaaanks for bringing me to this one".. then the comeback began - down 7-1, Delgado cranks out 2 HR's himself (one also a granny) & by the 9th inning, they were only trailing by one run... one on, and Beltran up against Izzy.. first pitch sent over the wall for a GW 2-run HR.. place went NUTS...

I think it was a perfect game...

QOTD - I can not think of any games I went to that were significant. The only thing was I went to the first game ever played in the Cincinatti Bengals home stadium. It was a preseason game against the Bears.

I know it could be argued pro wrestling is not a sport. It is called sports entertainment. If this counts I have seen a few significant things wrestling wise. I saw Owen Hart's last match in WWE before his accident. I was at Wrestlemania 22.

I will never forget that game. I was in 8th grade...stayed up way too late. Sad thing is I know if I was in junior high then a lot of the people on OS were in kindergarten.

QOTD: South Carolina beating Florida in Columbia two years ago. What a great game that was.

1992 Apple Cup. I was 10 but it was unbelievable.

Drew Bledsoe and the Cougars killed the defending national champion Huskies at home. It was cold, it was snowy, and it was incredible.

2001 Hawaii football season. Hawaii playing against Miami(OH) when Big Ben was a redshirt freshman. He was dicing the defense that game. But Hawaii won that game. Another was against Fresno St. David Carr was QB for Fresno St. Hawaii won that game.

The craziest game was against BYU. Hawaii won 72-45. What a game that was. It was pretty shocking that Nick Rolovich racked up I think it was 573 yards passing with I think 6 TD passes.
