Today, a new website called The Ultimate Sports List launched at www.tusl.com. The social-media savvy site was created by a fellow sports fan, Tom Walsh, from Cincinnati Ohio. Think of it as a Facebook for sports fans without Farmville, Mafia Wars or "black cloud" status updates.
The site is being launched with some fanfare as he unveils a list in chronological order of the Top 150 Sporting Events in the world as voted by some 20,000 people.
After browsing through the site, I started to create my own Top 10 List of Sporting Events I must attend before ...
A visit to all MLB parks: this is a no-brainer. I have visited 13 of the ball parks and am on a quest to knock off two more this summer (St. Louis and Milwaukee are the targets).
The Kentucky Derby: this easy jaunt has eluded me for last eight years since I have worked the Flying Pig Marathon during this time and the race is always on Marathon weekend (next year, the dates do not coincide!).
The Super Bowl, only if the Cincinnati Bengals are playing in it.
The 16th hole at the Phoenix Open! (you know what I mean.)
The Summer Olympics in London: this will be an amazing opportunity for Americans to watch great moments in sports history and tour an amazing city.
A Saturday afternoon watching LSU play Tennessee at home.
The Winter Olympics: I would mortgage the farm to see USA Hockey in the finals against anyone.
Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Yankees at new Yankee Stadium.
U.S. Open at Pebble Beach
U.S. Open at Pinehurst #2
So what's on your list? Feel free to build it on www.tusl.com or comment below.
