    One event

    You get tickets to one event for one year. What event are you picking and why?

    Personally, I'd love to be at any
    1. World Series Game 7 (especially at Yankee Stadium)
    2. Duke vs. UNC in basketball
    3. Florida vs Georgia in college football
    4. The Masters with Tiger
    5. Olympic basketball
    6. ISU BCS bowl (wishful thinking )

    Re: One event

    Iowa State at football or basketball National Championship would be nice or the Cubs at game 7 at the World Series in Wrigley.

    Re: One event

    At this point I'd take ISU in any bowl. Or ISU in the NCAA tournament whether it's the first and second rounds I just don't care.

    From someone that's been there, Honolulu is one of the most overrated vacation destinations there are. Outside of Pearl Harbor, Manoa Trail, Diamond Head, and the catamaran ride, Oahu is kind of "meh". Waikiki is especially overrated - everything there looks so "40 years ago". The island is extremely overcrowded, and many industrial and run-down areas are sitting right on top of the "touristy" area. I'm sure the other islands are nice though, but as we're talking about a Hawaii home game, you're going to be in Honolulu.

    As far as my choice, first choice would be the ISU BCS game. Second would be the ISU Final 4 game. Third would be World Series Game 7 (especially if the Twins were in it).

    Re: One event

    1. ALCS Game 7 - Yankees @ Red Sox. (I would have said Red Sox @ Yankees if it was in the original Yankee Stadium)
    2. Mens BBall - UNC @ Duke

    The Masters would be cool to walk on Augusta National, but you get way better coverage on TV.

    Coolest thing I've ever done was Pepsi 400 at Daytona. Everyone should become a redneck for a day - it's quite the experience...
