November Sports Adventure
November 2, 2010 - Al Stephenson
It's now November and it's time to pick that one sporting event to go to (if you only could). I have been giving you my choice of preferred events since the beginning of the year. Golf, auto racing, baseball, college football, college basketball and tennis all have been featured. For the month of November the list is somewhat limited.
With the World Series over, the NBA in its beginning stages and the NFL halfway through the season, the pickings are a little light. Don't think for a minute that there is no where to go though. Sports are available all year long.
As a Nascar fan, the season ending race at Homestead is somewhat appealing. If the current chase stays as close as it is right now - the season ender would be fun indeed. It would be more fun for me if my favorite driver was still participating, but Sterling Marlin retired and I have not been able to find a replacement to root for. So I'm passing on this one.
Perhaps the best bet in November is a college football rivalry matchup. The first one that comes to mind is Ohio State-Michigan, but I've been to a couple of those. Great atmosphere, but it's hard to get as excited since I've experienced it. If I could go to the Big House for one, that would be cool. That is assuming that OSU triumphed. It would be hard to wear the scarlet and red only to see the Wolverines win.
Other games come to mind. Alabama-Auburn will be good this year. Oklahoma-Texas would be fun. How about Stanford and Cal. If they could reproduce The Play - it would be awesome to tell people you were there for that ending. Despite the fact that it would be fun to see how other college crowds tailgate and react to game situations, I think I'll pass for something else.
I am going to choose a Thanksgiving Day tradition. I would like to go to a Dallas Cowboys Turkey Day game, if for no other reason than to see their new stadium. It is supposed to be amazing and I could enjoy watching an NFL game as well. That's my pick.
The view from my seat suggests that heading for Texas is a good choice. I wish I could turn the clock back a few years though. If I could it would be to go to Detroit on Thanksgiving Day to see Barry Sanders run the football. If only...
