There are loads of sports events I really want to make sure I get to before the next life (when I might not be such a sports fan).
- Hong Kong Sevens Tournament (rugby) – there are loads of rugby 7s tournaments, this is the original headline event.
- State of Origin series (Australian rugby league)
- A Superbowl (American football)
- An All-Ireland GAA football final with Dublin beating Kerry, Meath, Cork, or Tyrone. Actually, make that 4 All-Ireland finals (with Dublin …)
- Tour de France Alpe D’Huez stage finish
Would like to attend:
- Heineken Cup final (rugby), preferably with an Irish team, preferably not Munster again (I don’t mind Munster, it’s just the bloody fans that are annoying).
- Rugby World Cup final
- Snooker World Championship match at The Crucible
- The Ashes (cricket)
- CFB Bowl game (American college football)
- MLB World Series Game 7
- NBA Championship Game 7
What about you, sports fans, what sports events must you attend before you meet your maker? Post a comment and let me know!
