The Six Best Sporting Events

I grew up playing sports and watching sports on TV and live. Sports have always been an important part of my life and they always will be. There are many awesome sporting events taking place every day. Racing of all sorts, cars, horses, motorcycles and bikes are all worthy of recognition. Stick and ball sports are tops for me, as you will see by this list.

Super Bowl -Football

This is easily my favorite sport event of the year, regardless of which teams are playing. Of course its better when my team is in it–and since they have 6 Super Bowl wins, they are in it more than most (Go Steelers!). Super Bowl Sunday!! And as opposed as I am to ever watching commercials, the Super Bowl commercials are generally worth watching.

Stanley Cup Finals -Hockey

I love ice hockey. The toughness, the hits, the stylish goals and speed of the game make it one of the best sports to watch, especially live. The Stanley Cup winner truly is the best hockey team of the year. If you have never been to a live NHL game, give it a try. Hockey is addicting and its an easy way to get your aggressive feelings out without ever having to do anything other than watch a tough NHL game.

World Series -Baseball

Baseball can be a little boring sometimes, but the excitement created by the World Series is enough to wake you up. A 7 game series between the best National League team and the top American League team…who gets to pop the champagne this year?

World Cup -Soccer

This sport may not be anywhere near as big in America as it is around the world, but even American's get caught up in World Cup when our team is competing. Soccer will never be our top sport, but the World Cup is a great sporting event! The women's team once again led us all onto their bandwagon s they made the World Cup Finals. Though this time they lost to Japan , it was still an exciting and emotional game.

Daytona 500 -NASCAR Sprint Cup

Many folks make fun of NASCAR, but my guess is that they have never been to an actual NASCAR Sprint Cup race. The Daytona 500 is how NASCAR kicks off its season, and they call it the Super Bowl of NASCAR. Winning the Daytona 500 puts you in a special class of driver's, and every NASCAR driver dreams of winning this race.

Iditarod -Dog Sled Race

It's known as the "last great race on Earth". It is an 1150 mile race in Alaska that takes competitors 9-12 days to complete. As hard as it is on the musher's, it's certainly more difficult on the sled dogs doing most of the work. This sport is not for the faint of heart.
