I saw Ken Holtzman of the Cubs throw a no hitter against the Astros for 9 innings and then lose 1-0 in extra innings.

My wife was at the Earthquake Game against Auburn.

My son was there for Nolan Ryan's 5,000th strikeout. He got his ticket stub framed with a certificate marking the occasion.

Opening Day 1975. Frank Robinson, the Leagues first black manager for the Indians.

He was a player manager and slugged a home run and we beat the Yankees. Old Municipal Stadium was rocking!

I have an interesting one for LSU fans: I was at the Big XII Championship game in 2007 between Missouri and Oklahoma. It was the final piece of the puzzle that allowed LSU to go to the championship game that year. Here are my others:

1991 Iron Bowl
2004 St. Louis Regional Final, GT made it to the Final 4
2005 GT win at #3 Miami
2006 ACC Championship Game
2007 Michigan-Ohio St
2010 Orange Bowl
