What is on YOUR Sports Bucket List?

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.

 In Utah it was always the Broncos and 49ers on tv so lots of fans of those teams here - especially when Steve Young was in SF.  I grew up a Cowboys fan (so painful now - I am trying to quit) Loved Roger Staubach and those cheerleaders!  Also Ravens fans - somehow that became my son’s team and honestly a lot more interesting to follow than the Jerry Jones underachievers.   Still more passionate about CFB and the Utes.

WOW!! I'm so fortunate, my Bucket is full of completed items. I was a teenage groom and father, the kids grew up fast and left home which gave us the freedom to travel. Have been season ticket holders since 1995 ( I've only missed one game). Two Rose Bowls , Penn State & tOSU. Holiday Bowls, Cotton, Sun Bowls and I want to forget the Seattle Bowl. Championship Game in Glendale (he was down). We have been to 9 of the Pac 12 venues. Still on the list are Stanford, Colorado and Tempe. 

 

We have been in or thru 43 states on a motorcycle or a 1948 Ford. In November we are doing a Mississippi River paddle boat trip from NOLA to Memphis then a rental car loop thru SEC country to pick up 6 more states that leave only a trip to Hawaii to complete all 50.   

 

Been to Sturgis, Daytona 500, did the Iron Butt 1000. Been to Rome, Paris, London. Multiple Caribbean Islands and the Panama Canal, various Mexican touristy seaports. 

 

What's left? Indianapolis 500. I received an add for driving an exotic at PIR that will only cost me half of my SS check. I did a Petty car at Las Vegas a few years ago. 135mph. 

 

Tantamount for November will be to find good sports bars in New Orleans and Vicksburg to watch the home game we will miss on the riverboat cruise. The good news for my brother in law and my son is they will get belated and early, respectively, Birthday presents of game tickets.
