You were acting like it was the end of the world

Smee, I've been to the Watkins Glen, NY Grand Prix several times...very cool and exciting! (Except for a horrible crash that I was unlucky enough to witness.) And, man, what a party goes on, too.

Have a fortnight ticket to watch the World Snooker Championships at The Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.

The best sporting event I ever attended was the The Open golf championship at Royal Birkdale in 2017 when Jordan Spieth won it.  Gripping drama.

I've experienced the Rugby World Cup, twice. I would like to experience the women's soccer world cup, but I want to see it from the perspective of the swedish teams locker room. Failing that, Le Tour would be nice, and I'd give a nut to see Liverpool in the UCL final.

A stupid person posing for an instagram photo- not even holding a sign for the riders but posing for a picture with the riders meant to be in the background.  Fine her substantially.

Fights have the potential to last a few seconds so i would never pay top dollar to watch it.  but to be up front would be pretty cool.

I'd love a day in an Olympics stadium watching track and field finals. Disappointed I couldn't get access to London 2012.

I've got this thing about taking in a baseball game and NASCAR when I eventually do a road trip in the States. I have no idea when or where. Don't follow them but want to experience that culture.

As someone who has barely seen any sport in person, I'm surprised to see I can tick one of yours above off. I saw Scotland play England about 20 years ago, one of the last games at the old Wembley Stadium. Scotland beat us 1-0 I think but can't remember what the significance of the game was.

No doubt thereís something special about a baseball game. If you ever make it, donít necessarily go to a major league game. You can get the full experience just by attending a ball game in the AAA minor league. Also, get some hotdogs.  ;)
