What is your favorite non-MMA sporting event or stretch of games?
 
Besides anything MMA related, what event or more specifically your favorite stretch of a couple days. For example I love the first 4 days of the NCAA basketball tournament. That first Thursday-Sunday where it goes from 64 teams to 16.

Try and keep it specific like the opening round or Championship round of a specific tournament or event.

The UEFA champions league playoffs. Of course they stretch over months. :D

Do you have a particular favorite stretch? Perhaps the begging when there is hope for everyone? Maybe the end where you know who is in it and what is on the line?

Probably the final 16 round, as soon as the group phase stops. I don't really have a stake in the CL since my club is as far from championship material as Sharknado from an Oscar so I enjoy the games and occasionally root against Bayern.

I know the feeling, Oklahoma has never won a NCAA title in basketball. I think they have made it to the title game twice but the last time that happened I was 2 years old. There are plenty of years they don't even make the tournament. But it's still fun to watch. They will be in it this year but they have no realistic chance to win it all. Sweet 16 would probably be the best possible outcome for them this season.

I use to watch NBA religiously. NBA all star weekend!

Strangely I didn't get into NCAA too much. Wayyy too many colleges to keep track of.

Love Soccer. Probably would play soccer if I wouldn't do MMA.

I like the Christmas Day games they have in the NBA. The NBA playoffs are always fun IMO.

I love the World Cup when it comes to soccer. I don't get into club soccer but I enjoy the International games.

My post in the WAYDRN is what inspired this thread. That post probably fits better here...so I'll copy and paste it now :D


Can't wait for March Madness. I took off work on Thursday and Friday like I always do so I don't miss any of the early buzzer beaters. When I was younger I use to get a poster of the whole bracket and put it on the back of my door and every morning me and my dad would go through and fill out the winners from the day before.
I was even lucky enough that 1 time when I was like 8 years old my dad let me miss school and took me to NCAA tourney games that were being played in OKC. I saw Oklahoma St beat New Mexico St and Tulsa upset UCLA. This was back when Big Country was playing for Oklahoma State. Not that any of you probably know what I'm talking about lol

Found a news article from the Tulsa-UCLA game. Happened in 1994.

not to get too sappy buy my dad died when I was a Jr in High School so the NCAA tourney has a special place in my heart.
