    Best, most memorable sporting event you've seen in person?

    Spin-off of the http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...ve-person.html thread.

    What's the best, most memorable sporting event you've seen in person?

    I would say try to keep it non-ISU if you can. If the most memorable sporting event is Iowa State related, then it is. I just foresee many "Oklahoma State-Iowa State football" like responses.

    For me:

    1) November 4th, 2007. Adrian Peterson runs for 296 yards against the Chargers.

    This also happened in that game:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5OFikuwVgA&feature=related"]Longest Return in NFL History 109 FG Return - YouTube[/ame]

    2) October 6th, 2009. Tigers @ Twins Game 163.



    3) Saw Mark McGwire hit a home run when the Cardinals played at the Twins during his 70-home run season in 1998. I was 13 at the time, and didn't give a thought of steroids being involved. I was thrilled to get to see a part of eventual history.

    1982 Final Four, Jordan is a freshman and NC beats Georgetown. Great game and lots of stars in that particular Final Four.


    If you don't think every day is a good day, try missing one.

    ISU over Iowa last year. Chiefs beating the Chargers two years ago for the home opener on MNF.

    The last time we played Nebraska was also pretty memorable, but not a fan of the outcome.

    When I made the game winning shot to win the 5th grade YMCA basketball league. I'm glad I was there to witness my own greatness.

    Saw ISU at MU when Davis went off. Saw ISU come from 20 back to beat CO in a November game on a beautiful day. Both of those were great. Those and a lot of others previously mentioned are good candidates. ISU winning thier first conferance championship and the last Big 8 tournament in 1996 at Kemper Arena is an easy most memorable in person. It was a close game 56-55 and when Calvin Kato drew a charge on one of the KU gaurds in the last couple stretch it was clear ISU was making the breaks it needed to win the game. Not only was it a great game but it really got the monkey of ISUs back and proved they could win. I think that season and that win set the table for the increased level of success we have seen the last fifteen years of cyclone athletics

    Was it 378? Probably right. For some reason 428 was stuck in my head.
