Whats one sports event you would have loved to see live and in-person? How much would you pay?
These are questions I have been asking myself a lot ever since I saw SB Nation ask which sporting event you wish Twitter had been around for. Im taking it one step further, and asking which one youd want to actually be in the stadium for.

The answer is very simple for me, and its not even close. I would empty out my bank account if it meant that I could have been in the stadium for the Miracle on Ice.
That 1980 Olympic game between the USA and the Soviet Union played an important role in my upbringing, especially when it comes to my relationship with my father. I was never alive to see it, but we still talk about it all the time.
I cant even sit here today and imagine what the feelings in that stadium must have been like as our hockey team pulled off the greatest upset in the history of sports. It must have been so chilling and incredible to breathe in the cold air as the final buzzer went off.
Its not a joke when I say that I would empty my bank accounts for two tickets to that game. There wouldnt even be any hesitation. That money would be transferred so fast that your head would spin if it meant that I got to see that game.
How about you guys? Shoot off in the comments with what sporting event you would have like to see in person!
