I hope everyone reading this has a safe and healthy New Year’s Eve. This holiday never made any sense to me. Tomorrow we will all feel exactly the same, and finally the world can get back to work. Growing up, this was the only day I ever watched College Football. Now, the only sports I consume is the NHL’s Winter Classic, a truly amazing event. This was an interesting year for me. Biggest thing? Conquered Lyme’s Disease, and am now down 17 lbs. on a new detox/cleanse program. Getting my health back! And will be on MLB Network in January.
Tonight I’ll be with friends, keeping 1 eye on Syracuse Basketball hosting Cornell and the other on my New Jersey Devils who are in Detroit. I figured a fun thing to do is to show some of my long-going opinions, and get in the mood for some fun debate in 2015.
Here we go:
4. College Basketball
8. Ping Pong
11. And WAY down the list…. NBA Basketball (can’t say that will ever crack the Top 5)
1. Safeco Field
2. Coors Field
3. Citizens Bank Park
4. Petco Park
5. Nationals Park
AT&T Field in San Francisco is gorgeous, but they get undo credit for water that they didn’t build. Pittsburgh is also great, but I’d make it more of a Top 10. I’ll rank all 26 that I’ve been to in 2015 here on Sportsblog.
My Favorite Athletes (People I’ve met & people I’ve never met)
Ken Griffey Jr.
Athletes I admire but never had a personal relationship
That was fun. Not really scientific, but there is a story for every name and place there. All to be told next year.
Anyway, Happy New Year! Here’s to great things in 2015!
