Things I saw in person:
2007 Warriors vs. Mavs, game 6:
This is probably the craziest thing I've ever been invovled in. I'm not sure if I sat down at all the entire game. It felt more like a concert than a sporting event. It was strange because although there were highs and lows within that game you could get the sense that everyone there knew something special was about to happen.
2006 A's vs. Twins, game 3:
This was the baseball equivelent of what the Warriors did, at least in the past decade. The A's had made the playoffs so many times but had never been able to get out fo the first, partly at the hands of Minnesota. Haren pitched a gem and Scutaro stepped up big as 55,000 people waved towels non stop, shaking the whole building.
Ichiro throwing out Terrence Long at 3rd base:
I was sitting in the left field bleachers for this, and had a great view. It was Ichiro's rookie season and everyone was still unsure how good he was going to be. I forget who, but someone singled to right while Long was on first and he tried to get to third on the play. Ichiro threw him out on one of the hardest throws I've ever seen. The ball left his hand about 7 feet above the ground and never rose up - it was literally like it was a laser. The entire stadium had the air sucked out of it - we were all A's fans but we knew we just saw something amazing.
