Where would you go? Money isn't an issue.
"I was brought in here to change the culture. I'm going to coach with passion" - Fran McCaffery.
Iowa Hawkeye BCS Championship or whatever they are calling it in the future game. The Masters would be pretty sweet also.
I'd pick game 6 of the 98 NBA Finals. If I had to pick any Iowa related event, it'd probably be The Catch game or Kinnick's Heisman Trophy speech.
Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals, Lakers vs Blazers.
"A good burn is like good sex. It's simple, to the point, and leaves your victim totally destroyed."--Kenny Drebsen
I always wondered what the first Olympics was like. Was every competitor naked? Seems kinda harsh before Off and all.
The Beer Fest from Beer Fest
1980 Winter Olympic hockey games. All of them.
If I had to pick one game, the US vs Soviet game from the same event
-would like to have seen Secretariat run
-See an Ali fight in his prime
-Any baseball game back at one of the Cathedrals in it's prime
-any Iowa game with my Dad
Jesse Owens at the Olympics in Germany, Jackie Robinson's first major league game and the Miracle on Ice.
1985 Iowa vs. Michigan
Good one. If TV counts I did three of those. Does the Twins and Yankees with my Dad in Minny before domes count? That was way good fun.
Watched the Ali fights on bw tv in the tv room in the basment of Hillcrest when it was new. Not the tv, Hillcrest.
And hey Wiser, if you do another old joke on me, I won't be as nice as last time. Just sayin......

Age is relative. You're not old if we compare you to the pyramids .
But cereally, that would have been cool to see. My dad's never been to an Iowa game (he's not as big a fan as I am, though). I hope to get my folks out here sometime soon for a game.
It's tough to pick just one, but here are the first ten I thought of:
-1979 college basketball championship game between Magic's Michigan State and Bird's Indiana State.
-1985 Iowa vs. Michigan
-Jackie Robinson's 1947 debut
-Game 7, 2010 NBA Finals, Celtics at Lakers
-Clay vs. Liston from 1964
-Miracle on Ice (though I'm not that into hockey)
-1968 Olympics (Bob Beamon's miracle long jump and Smith/Carlos' 200M and podium salute)
-2002 Iowa at Minnesota (my personal favorite Iowa game of my lifetime)
-The debut of basketball in Springfield, MA in December 1891
-1988 Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma St in Tokyo. Barry Sanders won the Heisman Trophy that morning, then went out and ran the ball 44 times fro 332 yards and 4 touchdowns to lead his team to a 45-42 victory.
A day of gladiatorial fighting at the Coliseum.
In memory of Tusks.
The 1959 Rose Bowl and/or Game 7 of the 1908 World Series.
Game 6 & 7 of the 1975 World Series Cincy Reds v BoSox.
1986? Texas Bowl, when Chuck Long torched Texas
2004 Cap One Bowl vs LSU; Tate to Holloway
I've been to a lot of Iowa Bowl games, but missed that one, although
watching it anywhere was pure euphoria.
TPC at Sawgrass.......is on my personal bucket list.
Kentucky Derby, also
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
These are all really good. It gets me wishing I could see them all. Who's inventing the time machine for us Vothers?
I was at the Cap 1 game and have told this a couple times elsewhere. But the people right behind were just some locals watching the game. After LSU scored late they said, well let's go and got up and left.
That was something I will never forget. And after the game we were at a bar and one in our group was talking to some LSU fans. LSU fans are great by the way if you didn't know. And he was pretty damn drunk saying, but how did it feel to lose like that? I am mean really I'm not trying to screw with you but how did it feel to lose like that? Ahhhhh memories.
I've heard them and SCar fans are really good fans.
Being a Reds fan, I would have rather gone to Game 7 of that series.
Fish is already on it. What else did you think he was doing in Europe?
I think he should work harder! and true, besides drinking, I'd see no other reason to go there.
