    The best I've got is
    The Kings vs Oilers
    The Kings vs Blues
    Both in the first round, both losses.

    I've been to 5 Grey Cups (Canadian Football League's championship games), a bunch of college football bowl games (Fiesta Bowls, primarily) & 1 World Series game (Game 6, Diamondbacks vs Yankees in '01)

    Yes I was in New Orleans a couple years ago to see the Ravens win the Super Bowl and in Tampa in 2000 to see the first championship.

    Also went to the Orange Bowl to my Maryland Terps get destroyed by the Florida Gators

    '09 Grey Cup, Montreal Alouettes vs Saskatchewan Roughriders in Calgary, Alberta.

    Hardly any Alouettes fans seemed to be there, and the team was getting handled pretty much the whole game, yet the Als kept hanging around, and the Riders couldn't put them away.

    Montreal wound up winning on a 2nd attempt FG (1st one missed) after Saskatchewan was penalized for too many men on the field, as I recall.

    My son and a buddy of mine made the trip. We froze our asses off, literally, on the cold, metal, temporary stands they put up, but it was a good time!

    I went to Super Bowl XXX in Tempe. Can't believe it was 20 years ago. I'm a Steeler fan. It was the first time they lost a Super Bowl. 6-2 now. It was a good time, other than the score and the fact that it was at Sun Devil stadium where they had nothing but bleacher (bench style) seating. We were on the 40 yd line, squeezed into bleachers.

    I was in the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum for the '00 AFC Championship game. Man, that game SUCKED.

    After Siragusa crushed Gannon and knocked him out of the game, my Raiders were done. I remember that little flick pass over the middle that Shannon Sharpe ran in for a TD (on 3rd down, DEEP into Raven's territory) - you literally could have heard a pin drop.

    Unless you're seeing your team win, going to the Super Bowl always seemed like something that was much better in theory than practice.

    Agreed. It might be more enjoyable just to watch the game. Take in the atmosphere and whatnot.

    I was an invited guest to SuperBowl 27 in Pasadena Cowboys vs. Bills 1993. I am a Cowboy fan so it was a huge deal for me. I worked for a large retail chain at the time and one of the vendors was a sponsor and took great care of us - plane ride, hotel, game tickets, official parties, you name it.

    There was an NFL party the night before with more food and dop shelv ligga than I had ever seen in my life. I was so worried about missing the official bus the next morning that I held back.

    Then there was a big tailgate party pre game with more food and booze and celebs. Jay Leno was just walking around talking with people. I chatted with Roger Staubach in the food line. I was a huge fan of Meet The Press and chatted with Tim Russert in the beer line. He was a huge Bills fan but we had a nice chat and clinked glasses and wished each other good luck. Classy guy. RIP.

    Michael Jackson was the halftime show. Cowboys won big. Had to take the red eye home that night from LAX so again couldn't really celebrate.

    One month later my wife found out she was pregnant with our first.... kid is 22 now and we tease her and call her the SuperBowl baby.

    Did you get emotional ? I cried when the Kings won their first Cup. When Brownie passed the Cup to Willie Mitchell, man that was the best feeling ever. Only on TV, but still
