    Did you get to meet your fave player, were you at a historic game, did you rush the playing field nude and get arrested on national tv?? what is your fondest memory???

    One that stands out for me is getting a tour of the old Yankee Stadium..I was all giddy and gay :D

    One time I faked a shot on goal to the left and I blasted it into the net on right.

    I was awesome that day.

    True story.

    Four touchdowns in one game

    Greatest while running back ever in an all black school

    Think Al Bundy meets The White Shadow meets Tarzan King of the Apes

    Cleveland Indians Playoff game. The one where Jabba was crying about the bugs in his face. Whipped the Yankees.

    I'm not even a tribe fan, but the crowd was fucking electric and the game was amazing. Never been to another game like it.

    It's a long story so please spare me the "Colin Powell" jokes. :hhh:

    2 years I was working at a company with offices all over the world. My job was to purchase cellphones for the Quality Assurance dept. I would often purchase via the NYC office. My friend Joe says to me "I have a contact in L.A. who can get you phones, his name is Brian." I make an order with Brian, 2 weeks I still haven't received the phones so I send an e-mail asking for news. He apologizes and everything, so Joe replies "Nantrax is Canadian so to make him happy, you should get him some tickets to a game". I'm like "hahaha, typical joke".

    Brian replies "I'm friends with michael cammalleri (he spells it all wrong though), he plays up there now, right? I can call him and see him what I can do". I'm thinking that my friend Joe is playing a joke on me. He's quite the prankster but I decide to go along with it.
    "You know it's my birthday next week and they play that night against St-Louis, that would be a great gift"
    "I'm on it and i'll give you news later"

    3 days later (4 days before the game) I get an e-mail "2 tickets under your name at the ticket office".

    I'm like "WTF, this can't be real". The next day I call the ticket office and explain the situation. They tell me "When players give out tickets, they only are available 1 hour before the game." I tell my wife about this, I tell her that we have to stay in town. The night comes, I go to the Bell Center one hour before the game. Tickets not ready yet... I'm getting nervous. I come back 15 minutes later, the woman recognizes me and tells me to come over. She gives me an envelope and says "Have a good match". I look and 2 tickets! In the red seats, with the Habs scoring in 1st and 3rd period. A bit high but how was I going to complain? Each ticket worth around 100$ each. I leave the ticket office and I start to wonder, who gave me these tickets? Brian or Michael Cammalleri? I go back and ask the lady. She goes back and tells me "Michael Cammalleri gave you these tickets". Fucking Michael Cammalleri gave me tickets as a birthday gift!!! :nutz:

    Habs lost the game in O.T. but who cares.

    I learned after the fact that Brian and Mike were indeed friends, they went to U of Michigan together. Brian's roommate was the Hockey team captain, thus he met Mike that way.

    He even said after "You could have asked to meet to Mike after the game".... "You could have told me this before!!!!" :facepalm:

    But a great experience anyway.
