    Saw this on the DM Reg.

    Instead of what is your top ten sports days of the year, what is your top sports day of the year? Mine is the first day of March Madness. I always take the two days off associated with the first round of the tournament.

    What is your favorite sports day of the year?

    The first 10 minutes of tailgating on the first day of college football. After you get the parking space you want because you're so early, you have everything set-up, the music is playing, you take a seat and you crack open that first beer. Not only the best sports day the best day of the year.

    Re: Saw this on the DM Reg.

    There's nothing I love more than the first weekend of the NCAA. It's my own personal holiday weekend. I vowed a couple of years ago never to work on that Thursday and Friday again. And there is no better feeling then watching Iowa State play in the NCAA and win.

    Second would be the first Iowa State football game of the year. For some reason, last year I was just so ready for football to start. I think it was the hot, dry summer and I was so ready for fall. This year, I am not quite as ready (yet).

    Another day I like isn't really a day, but it is the first bye week for Iowa State in football. It is very enjoyable to be at home and not having to worry about an Iowa State game. Just watch a lot of football. And, although it kind of contradicts what I just wrote, I also love a game Saturday where Iowa State wins, Iowa loses and I can spend the night just enjoying those fact.

    Re: Saw this on the DM Reg.

    I will follow in the first day of March Madness thought. Jan 1 used to be awesome before they spread out all the bowl games and might be in the running otherwise.

    Re: Saw this on the DM Reg.

    If you said anything other than first day of CFB, you're a commie bastard.

    If your 2nd fav is anything other than first day of MBB march madness, you are also a commie bastard.

    If neither of these are in your top 2 - may God have mercy on your soul.

    Re: Saw this on the DM Reg.

    The season opener in football is a CLOSE second, but im going to have to say the Iowa/Iowa State game. One huge statewide party.

    Re: Saw this on the DM Reg.

    First and second day of March Madness as well. I have taken those days off for the past 4 years and will continue to do so. BWW and other sports bars make their money on me and my friends on those days. No other days in sports bring people together to cheer for some no name school to destroy a favorite. Two or three close upsets in a day is icing on the cake.

    Jan 1 would be my top if they hadn't have separated all the bowls, but I agree with you on March Madness. The Superbowl would be my second.

    Also, I don't know how the National Spelling Bee made the list. I think just about the start of any pro playoff season would blow it out of the water or even the Daytona 500.

    Re: Saw this on the DM Reg.

    Gotta go with the start of march madness.

    I mean, the first saturday of football can be a lot of fun, but lets be honest, most of the games played that weekend suck, where for march madness you usually get a ton of great games to watch that first weekend.
