What is on YOUR Sports Bucket List?

Recommended Posts

I am curious as to where other Duck fans want to visit eventually...what is on YOUR Sports Bucket List?  (It does not have to be Oregon related)

 

I think I would like to go to a Chargers game while Justin is still there, and I need to get back to a bowl game again.  And I would like to go to some away Baseball games, and experience other venues around the conference.

 

How about you?

Great idea, Charles, you took a good one with being at a Chargers game, besides that, definitely a seat to watch the Ducks win the Natty followed a few months later with another Final Four victory and then be courtside as the Ducks cut the nets.

 

It would be fun to get a bus like Madden had and a bunch of friends and just take a visit of all of the stadia of the NFL, MLB and NBA.  Ever since I started watching Wimbledon back in the 70's I wanted to be one of the kids that  stood ready to rush out and get the errant ball off the court.

Funny thing is that as much as I love football, I don't really go to games.  I've seen the Ducks play in person literally ONE TIME - my wife got us fantastic tickets to see Herbert and the Ducks get absolutely slaughtered by a crappy Arizona team in Tucson.  Never even been inside Autzen.

 

I've seen the Cardinals play a few times, and most importantly saw my Steelers destroy Tennessee at Heinz Field on Thursday Night Football a few years ago.  Been courtside at a few Clippers games and saw my namesake and the Showtime Lakers play in the Great Western Forum a few times.  Lots and lots of Pepperdine basketball and volleyball games.  Suns, Mercury, Rattlers, Angels, Dodgers, Coyotes, and Diamondbacks a few times.

 

But bucket list?  If Oregon made the NC game or the Steelers went back to the Super Bowl, frankly I would prefer to watch it on a 60" TV in the comfort of my home.  My only bucket list thing (and we'll probably do this pretty soon) is to see Portugal play in person.  (Can't call is soccer any more - I have to do "football" and "American football".)  If I had the chance to do NBA or something like North Carolina or Kansas basketball courtside, I'd do that in a heartbeat - but you can see the whole court from that close.  Football you miss half the action even if you have great seats.

Would love to just travel one year and go to  football games /weekends at all the great college football game day environments around the country.  Mainly in the south, but would also like to see Clemson, Ohio State, probably Michigan, Notre Dame, and maybe Penn State besides.   That would mean I would be pretty inebriated for a couple months, but a sacrifice I'm ready and willing to make. 🤪

Would like to return to the College World Series.  Saw some of it once at Rosenblatt, would like to see it at the new place.  Women's College World Series.  

Final Four would be good.  An Olympics would be neat.

I have too much to do to sit and watch much. I am still training for a few big races and enjoy participating in sports still. I want to do as much as I can until I have to watch.

 

I suppose experiencing some sporting events with friends would be on my bucket list, but not too high. If a friend said they had tickets to a big event, I would make time. My bucket list is still full of things I want to do, not so much see.

Kentucky Derby.  Got married @ 12:34 5/6/78, the day Affirmed won (last triple crown winner until 2015) Would love to go 5/6/28 on our 50th anniversary (as long as I can count to 8, I can remember it.)

Too many to list.  Have checked off some and the best have been enjoying the event with one or both of my kids and building those memories.  My son still talks about beating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.   Rose Bowl with Utah playing was a big one and worth it even though the end sucked.  See a game in Eugene is right up there - can’t make it this year but soon.  See Utah in a playoff game.

 

Really want to see games in certain stadiums - SoFi, Death Valley (both), AT&T and Bryant-Denny.  Would love to experience one of the big college football rivalries like the Iron Bowl, MI/tOSU, FL/GA.

 

US woman’s soccer team in the World Cup final, NBA finals game with the Jazz (right after I get a unicorn).  Super Bowl with one of our teams playing.

 

Would love to play St. Andrews with my son - and a few other courses that are on his bucket list.

1) Run the table going to every game in a Duck football season (by RV if possible).

 

2) seeing as many NHL games live as possible 

 

3) a game 7 NHL final would be epic

 

4) a Final 4 with the Ducks basketball 

 

5) boxing title fight with good seats

Mostly college football and primarily based on the stadiums/environments that I want to see. No particular order:

 

- Wimbledon

- Daytona 500

- Talladega 

- Iron Bowl; one in each stadium

- Penn State on the "White-Out" night

- Notre Dame v. USC; at ND

- Florida v. Georgia; in the Swamp

- LSU v. ???; at Tiger Stadium

- Tennessee v. ???; at Neyland Stadium

- Clemson v. ???; in Death Valley

- Michigan v. OSU; one in each stadium

- Texas v. Oklahoma; one in each stadium

- T A&M v. ???; at T A&M

 

There's probably more that will come to mind, but that's a good start.

@Goutes18 We’re on the same wavelength 🙂

Currently, my goals are to see the Daytona 500, the U.S. Open and the Masters. The U.S. Open is in my hometown in 2 years, so that should happen barring any sudden changes.
 

Other than that, I’ve been to Autzen and Texas Stadium. I saw the Zags play in Chapel Hill, NC a couple of years ago and have been to a few of their games at the MAC in Spokane. I also saw the Midnight Sun baseball game up in Fairbanks, AK back in 2011 and I highly recommend it. I’m pretty satisfied so far, but if I ever visit Boston in the Fall then I would like to visit Fenway..

My bucket list is short and sweet. 

Catch a 40 lb. chinook in the morning, watch the Ducks win the Nattie in the afternoon, and hit a par 4 hole in one at sunset at Torrey Pines.  Easy peasy.

Duck National Championships in football and basketball---before I croak.

 

To see Portland get an NHL team too.

Go drive the Nurburgring with my Porsche that I picked up in Stuttgart earlier without destroying it.
 

Then pop over to watch the 24 Hours of LeMans before driving down to Sorrento, Italy to hang on the Amalfi coast for a month or two.

I doubt that anyone wants to hear about my ordinary bucket list with dopey things like “See the Toledo Rockets win a national championship in anything” or “Cheer the Lions on to a Super Bowl victory.”

 

No, I think you’d much rather see my super-ambitious list of sports hopes and dreams…

 

My ultimate “Top 10” sports bucket list

 

10.  Pull the plug on Traveler

 

  9.  Torpedo the fleet outside Husky Stadium

 

  8.  Sic the repo man on the Sooner Schooner 

 

  7.  Ship Butch T. Cougar to the Serengeti--see how he does there

 

  6.  Move Utah to West Virginia or someplace they can't bother us anymore

 

  5.  Stick Brutus way high in a Buckeye tree

 

  4.  Cart that obnoxious Stanford Tree to the sawmill

 

  3.  Offer up Benny the Beaver to cancer research

 

  2.  Fill in as a Pac-12 ref and screw over those insufferable Huskies

 

  1.  Kick 10 field goals for My Beloved Ducks in the natty, beat the Canes 30-2

I feel like I'm piggy-backing on some here, but it should be no surprise that we have some of these items in common...

 

1. Watch the Ducks in Autzen, MKA and PK Park (considering flying up for the BYU game this season)

2. Isle of Man TT (I missed my chance to cheer on Guy Martin 🙁)

3. Attend a Worlds Strongest Man

4. Play a round at Bandon Dunes

5. Watch a MotoGP race at CotA (which is only 5 hours away)

Curious - what are "our teams" in Utah?  I grew up in Oregon even before the Seahawks and latched onto the Steelers because most locals were 49ers fan and my family escaped Cali so I wasn't interested in following them.  Most of us ended up fans of the Steelers, Raiders, Cowboys, Rams, etc. - the teams most often featured on TV because they were good.  Wondering if it's the same around the Wasatch range.

My wife's bucket list includes renting a supercar (Ferrari, Lamborghini) and driving the roads around the Amalfi coast, ever since we did that in a crappy mini-compact rental a few years back.  Me, I'm more the '59 Coupe de Ville type of person, and those simply don't fit on our European roads.

Sorry, caught a typo - I think you meant to write "Ducks BEATING Bama (NCG) 2023."

 

Happy to help...

Lol…the tour buses on the Amalfi coast make you want to drive a beat up sub-compact. Those hairpin corners make the road seem like a bike path in some places.
 

I watched a brand new Ferrari a few years back slowly creep by a bus with literally an inch or two to spare.
