Sporting events have actually been a place to take a person on a date for years. But which sport lends itself better to being a good place to go on a date?
We'll look at all the major, and some of the minor, sports to see where is the best location to take your special someone. We will discuss which is best for a first date, which is best for an established couple, whether or not it is acceptable to do the jumbotron engagement thing and when you should just bring a friend.
Most of you are probably thinking that a sporting event isn't exactly the place for romance. You'd be surprised, each of these events has its pros and cons, and each has its niche in the dating scene.
I, for one, would be excited to go to any one of the events we'll look at. Any guy who took me to a baseball, football, basketball or hockey game would certainly earn himself a few opinion points.
But before we begin I add this disclaimer: know your date. Or at least know a little about him or her. For instance, if Khloe and Lamar ever split, do you really think she'd want you to take her to a Laker game? Do you think Bridget Moynihan wants to go see the Patriots play. But we aren't talking about the dime-a-dozen models and reality stars who date professional athletes. We are talking about the average Joe. Or Jane. Or whoever.
And the thing you must remember, guys, is that chivalry is not dead, and you never know when a camera is going to be turned on you, so NEVER let your date take the hit on a foul if you can help it.
