I went to my first Ohio State football game when I was around 7 years old, and probably attended at least one game every season thereafter through 2006, when I moved to California. In spite of this, I went to Duke, and am a huge Duke basketball fan, which has made me feel pretty conflicted the last couple years. :-)
The night before my law school graduation, I got to go to Game 6 of the NBA playoffs (Cavs vs. Pistons). My dad's friend had somehow nabbed 3rd row seats right behind where players would inbound the ball. Cleveland lost that game, but that wasn't the end of the night. We then went to the Foundation Room, where we dined with one of the owners of the Yankees, who let my dad and me try on one of his World Series rings. It was a loooong night, and I'm pretty sure I was still drunk at graduation (classy, I know), but it was completely surreal and something I doubt I will ever experience again.
