The most memorable game ever was the great bottle gate scandal at Cleveland Browns Stadium, my best friend Donnie and I were in the second level of the dawg pound for that one. Now I can add watching the human snow delay, Mike Hardgrove, in person at the 2007 Indians home opener. He only did his job, but between him and the ump they screwed the tribe, the fans, and Paul Byrd. BTW it was 15 degrees with the wind chill! Must be something about Cleveland sports, we seem to get the short end of the stick. We finally didn't get the short end of it though in game 2 of the 2007 ALDS vs. the Yankees. Fausto Carmona pitched a 9 inning gem, and Hafner hit a 2 out RBI in the 11th for a 2 - 1 win. The midges were all over the place for a couple of innings but the Tribe didn't show any effects from them like the Yanks did.
Favorite teams are the Browns, Indians, St.L. Cards., Raiders, but most of all we can not tolerate a loss in the last regular season NCAA DIV 1 Football Game to "That team from up north" as Woody would call them. Go Bucs!
My best friend Donnie and I attended the Indians 2006 home opener this year. It was awesome, Casey Blake hit a grand slam, Travis Hafner hit two other home runs. Definately one to remember. Tack on the 2008 opener also. I am not sure what year we started going to the opener together, I believe it was 1998, or 1999. but I have only missed one so far, and that was due to injury.
I have also seen many Bucs games at "the shoe" thanks to Mike Mackan, our Medical director for the paramedic program I help teach at. The only big ten team I haven't seen live is Michigan. There is nothing like a football game at "the shoe" It gets so loud, and energetic you can feel it come right up through the floor, through your feet, and into you.
