I am very fortunate to have many fun memories from games I've attended over the years. This thread is to share some of the more noteworthy ones. I'll never forget walking to Michigan Stadium on foot for the first time, hearing the dull crowd noise get louder and louder as I drew closer, then finally getting hit by a wave of sound as I turned the final corner on approach. Tom Brady was the QB that day, but obviously we had no idea who he'd become. I also saw a Brady vs. Brees college matchup that really seasoned in significance. In 2003, I went out to Detroit's new Comerica Park to see Roger Clemens go for his 300th win against the hapless Tigers. The weather was beautiful, a sunny Sunday day game, and the milestone brought out a sellout crowd. However, with a 7-1 lead, Clemens ran into trouble in the 5th inning, and the Yankees bullpen eventually blew the save. After nine even innings, Mariano Rivera came in to pitch a flawless 10th and 11th, but the bats had gone flat. David Wells entered the game in the 12th for what turned into an impromptu spot start. He was a former Tiger and got a warm welcome from the fans. Wells pitched 5.2 innings to get the 10-9 win after 17 frames. Clemens stayed stuck at 299, but after 5+ hours, my college buddies and I still went home quite happy. On the other end of the spectrum, I got to see Mike Mussina outduel Pedro Martinez for a 2-1 win at Yankee Stadium in May 2001. Both pitchers went 8 innings and struck out twelve apiece. This game lasted a mere two and half hours but was just as fun as a slugfest, watching two HoF aces mow down lineups full of all-stars. Seven years later, I went out to a Brooklyn Cyclones game (partial season Single A ball) in Coney Island and was surprised to see Pedro pitch a celebrity 3 innings of rehab work for the Mets' minor league team. Not his vintage stuff, but a funny little footnote at the end of his career. In 2009, the Nets were in limbo between their announced destination in Brooklyn and their previous home in the Meadowlands next to Giants Stadium. They took up a two-year residency in Newark and played in the Devils' hockey arena, but could not draw fan support and subsequently always offered huge ticket discounts. (not too different than the New Jersey Nets to be honest). This was around the time I was turning sour on the NBA and really 'noticing' the double-standards throughout sports. While no white athletes were involved, it was cool to see Devin Harris heave up a half-court buzzer-beater. The clip online is 26 seconds, but the officials kept us in our seats for what seemed like ten minutes before they finally confirmed the shot counted. In 2013, the New York Red Bulls produced an exciting 4-3 win against Real Salt Lake. The home team went up 2-0, squandered that lead completely to trail 3-2 after 82 minutes, then finally scored the winner on a diving header in stoppage time after a frantic final push. It was a gorgeous summer evening, and the packed stadium made the atmosphere electric. That was as loud and happy as I've ever seen a soccer crowd. I consider myself blessed to have been able to see a live baseball game in the summer of 2020 with my 93 yr old grandfather. The Traverse City Pit Spitters carried out a modified season of Single A ball. They ran a 'dollar draft' promotion in the second inning, and we didn't even have to wear masks while seated. It was a terrific opportunity. While looking back at all of these fondly, I have been wondering what the future holds for younger generations. I'm set to go back to a Red Bulls game this spring, at least as a trial, and subject myself to temperature checks and mandatory masks outdoors among an arbitrarily fractional crowd. The players will likely kneel, the banners will tout diversity and "anti-hate", and the stadium advertisements will alienate me. Rather than rejoicing at some restoration of privilege, this seems more like a slog. Will it ever go backwards? Doesn't seem likely to me. Sometime soon, we'll need to carry proof of flu "vaccination." Anyway, are their any particular games or fan experiences that stand out in your memories?
