I didn't know what else to add. But I've been to both the World Series (1998 Yankees @ Padres Game 3)

And the Stanley Cup (2003 Devils @ Ducks Game 3)

NLCS game 6 (the last at Busch Stadium) and the '03 Divisional Round are the closest I've gotten.

None can't be an "other". The Olympics is an "other", Daytona 500 is an "other". None is a "none". My answer is "none".

Even though the Daytona 500 is the biggest event in Nascar, its not the championship.

1958 US Open. I also went to the PGA but I don't remember the year. I went to an open practice for the 1988 Final Four at Kemper.

It should be a bannable offense for a non-Chiefs fan to post a poll like this on a Chiefs board.

Well, I dont know how that would work. I guess any time you saw a Main Title match in person.

Royals - and it was awesome. I was 14 at the time, and I remember my Dad let my older brother go down to run around on the field but I had to stay with him.

Thats cool and lame, but still seeing something like that must have been great. Plus the blowout meant no tense moments. I hate the Cards too, glad your a Royals fan.

AFC Divisional Playoff game in 03 Colts vs. Chiefs is the closest I've gotten to any of those. I was at the Daytona 500 when #3 won(98) and when he died(01).

I was at game 1 of the '88 World Series when Kirk Gibson hit a 2 run homer in the bottom of the ninth to beat the A's in LA.

I was at the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston when the Patriots defeated the Panthers 3229, as Adam Vinatieri kicked a 41-yard field goal with four seconds left.

Been lucky not only to go to these, but see two great games.

I've never attended one, but it's worked out that I lived in quite a few cities involved in major sporting events. I lived in Buffalo three of the years the Bills went to the Super Bowl. I lived in Washington DC the year they went to the Stanley Cup Finals against Detroit. I lived in Houston when the Super Bowl, MLB All Star game, World Series and two NLCS's were played there.
I just never went. Too much money in my opinion. The only one I really wish I'd gone to was the Stanley Cup Finals, but I'm a Sabres fan and the Caps had just beat the Sabres in the Eastern Conference finals so I was feeling a lot of hatred toward the Caps. The kind of sports hate only hockey can produce for me.
