  • Ever been to a game?

    How many people here have been to any professional sports game? My first game that I was at was a terrible expierence. My first NFL game was the Bronco-Raider Monday Night Football game when they killed us 34-10. Then the very next week I went to the Seahawk-Bronco game which we won 31-9. Then this year I went to a Rockie-Tigers game in June then just 3 weeks ago I went to Washington Huskies and Nevada and then Seattle Seahawks and the 49ers.

    I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience with your first game. I've been extremely lucky so far. I've been to 7 Broncos games (and if I still lived in Colorado I'd go to more) and they've won every game. In fact, I've never been to a professional game where the team I was cheering for lost. That includes 6 NBA games and 5 or 6 MLB games. I've never been to an NHL game but I hear they're fun.

    Football is my favorite sport but those games are also the most expensive on average, otherwise I'd attend more often.

      ya, sucks when your team loses at your very first game.
      i don't live in Colorado so i have never been to any of their games.
      because i live in California,. but, i have seen the Rockies play the Giants a few times, prettyt fun. i would have to say that i am lucky to because i have ben to 3 football games, (2 raider, 1 ninner) about like 15 baseball games (A's and Giants) and 1 basketball game (warriors0 and i1 hockey game (sharks). and 1 college footbal game(CAL). And i am not a very big hockey fan and i don't really follow it, but their games are pretty fun..and cold.

        I live in NY and have been to 2 Bronco games. My first one ever was back on opening day in like 94-95 vs the jets. It was Glyn Milburn's debut and he ran 2 punts back for td's ( i think that was the last time we ran a punt back -looks at deltha) anyway that was a good game

        i unfornuatley went last year vs the jets also, when Griese decided to thro the ball to jon McGraw & pretty much seal the deal on our season

          Have only been to one Broncos game

          1991 or 1992 (I had this discussion on another thread)m whatever season the Broncos went 5-11, I saw them at the Vet in Philly.


          I have seen the Steelers 3 times (all last year, against the Browns, the Panthers, and that crazy Atlanta game last season)

          The Eagles at home against the Chiefs way back in 1990 or something, and on the road in Phoenix twice.

          Cleveland at home against Baltimore 2 years ago.

          Buffalo at home against NE 3 years ago

          Washington at home against the Giants 1993 or 1994. I know I was in college, just can't remember the year.

          Thinking about the San Diego - Raiders game here 12/28, just to heckle the Raiders....always fun.....plus, as you can see, I like to hit at least one NFL game a season, the last few years. I try to anyway.

          For anyone who cares, I have seen more baseball games at the Vet and Shea than I can count, been to Yankee Stadium once (against Baltimore in 1983), the hall of fame game once (I LOVE the baseball hall of fame), Camden Yards once, PNC once, Jacobs Field once, and more AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre games than any other team out there.

          Went to the Boston Garden before they tore it down to see Philly play against the Bruins (when they both stunk, but its always fun to put up with drunk Boston fans), and the Spectrum or First Union Center in Philly to see countless Flyers, Sixers, Big 5, and NCAA basketball tourney games and concerts.

          I am somewhat of a sports nut.

          (Sidebar: I consider myself blessed to have been the legendary Duke-Kentucky NCAA regional playoff game that ended with that Christian Laettner shot. I still get chills thinking about that. The most excting and well played athletic contest I have ever seen. It was something special for sure.)

            I'm from West Virginia so it's hard to catch their games but i did get to see them play the bengals the year after elway retired. Cincy was 0 and 8 a beat the **** out of us; however, i did witness corey dillon break the nfl rushing record! Oh well maybe i can catch a game again with better results.

              I'm from Canada and have never been to an NFL game. I was supposed to go and watch the Chiefs vs Vikings game this year but it's too close to Christmas. Next year I may take the 16 hour drive down to Kansas City and watch the Chiefs play the Broncos. That would be the ultimate for me. I could die a happy person after that. Well, only if the Chiefs won. If Denver won then I'd have to drive back when they play someone like Oakland and I can be assured of a win.

                  I have been to many professional sporting events over the years and have been fortunate in that some of them were quite memorable.

                  The very first was a Green Bay Packers - Baltimore Colts game in 1959 at Milwaukee County Stadium when I was a mere 8 year old. The Colts were defending NFL Champs and repeated in '59. I was fortunate enough (although my feet don't always agree) to have attended the 1967 NFL Championship game (aka the "Ice Bowl") at Lambeau Field with my late Uncle Bob and his brother, Roddy.

                  Other NFL games I have been to were Bear's games, one each at Wrigley Field and Solder Field and several Broncos games at Mile High Stadium when I lived in Denver.

                  There was no MLB when I lived in Denver but I attended many Milwaukee Braves games at Milwaukee County Stadium including two of note. One was Warren Spahn's 300th win and the other was the game that Willie Mays hit 4 home runs. The later was the most amazing individual performance I have ever witnessed.

                  I have been to Cubs games at Wrigley Field (one this season) and Sox games at both the old and new Comiskey Park.

                  I also have been to many Milwaukee Brewers games at both County Stadium and the new Miller Park (one this season). I also was fortunate to have gone to all seven games of the 1982 World Series.

                  I also have been to many NBA games, Milwaukee Bucks games in Milwaukee, Chicago Bulls games in Chicago (at the old Chicago Stadium) and the Nuggets at McNichols. Once I went to a Bucks game in Milwaukee vs Cleveland with some of my frat brothers and one of them went to high school (Racine St. Catherine) with Jim Chones so we went down at half time and met Chones and Kareem Abdul Jabaar. (I also met Oscar Robertson at a Milwaukee night club, Teddy's).

                  I have only been to one NHL game but it was rather memorable. My ex went into labor during the game (at Cobo).

                    That's one hell of hockey game!

                      I noticed some of us have mentioned college games as well. When I was in my early teens I went to every Carroll College home football game for several years but they are just a small school in Waukesha. I just lived nearby.

                      I have been to a few University of Wisconsin games at Camp Randall.

                      In the '70's I religiously (pun not really intended) attended Marquette University home basketball games when Al McGuire was HC. They won the NCAA national championship the last season before I moved to Denver.

                        Ive been to many Broncos, Nuggets, Avs, and Rockies games. Ive also been to games in Gainesville and Athens. Ive seen CU, CSU and Air Force too many times to count as well. I saw a Bucs game at the old Sombrero, and Ive seen a number of college basketball games. UF, USF, Washington, Purdue, Vanderbilt, and Kansas to name a few...



                        Quick: I haven't had my ass whipped in a while. Probably been since like...1911?

                        Quick: Yes, thats the last ass whipping I recall. And I'm looking for him.

                          This could be a good thread. Hate to see it get buried!

                              My first ever NFL game was 2 years ago against the Redskins. Quite possibly the worst.nfl.game.evar. I think the final was 14-10 Washington. I have been to several different baseball venues(Wrigley, Comisky, Miller Park, Metrodump, Kauffman(KC), Coors, ProPlayer, and Turner Field). I've been to one NHL game(Minnesota NorthStars), and one NBA game(T-Wolves) which I about fell asleep at. Now...if you want to talk college venues(football and bball) thats a different story. I could go on forever there.
