What's Your Dream?


So that genius over at Arrowhead Addict, Adam, had a great idea for this week’s Best View column: our dream doubleheaders.  Nine of us Fan-Sided bloggers participated, and the results were amazing.  I was one of the nine chosen to participate and here is mine (I actually overachieved and did two):

First:

I’m in Oregon during the late spring, early summer months.  I’m staying out in Junction City at my great-great-grandparents’ old farm with some distant relatives for my stay.  During the day, I head into Eugene and catch the Eugene Emeralds, a San Diego Padres affiliate.  After the game (which is brief and just a good game), I head over to Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus for the Pac-10 track championships.  I’m a huge running buff, and just to see some of the best college athletes on some of the most hallowed ground in track & field lore would be an amazing experience for me.  I see some new records and experience the mystique of a historic landmark.

Second:

I’m in Green Bay on a Sunday in October.  Da Bears are in town for a good ol’ fashioned grudge match and the stadium is hopping.  I get end zone seats.  The Packers dominate, 34-0.  Sexy Rexy is absolutely eaten alive by Aaron Kampman: three sacks for my man.  Rodgers throws for 300+ yards and two touchdowns, one to Greg Jennings who Lambeau Leaps right into me.  Ryan Grant tacks on 120-plus rushing yards and two touchdowns while the Packers just play a flawless game.  Then the real fun begins.  I hop a mass transit system (I hope there is one) down to Milwaukee for Game 7 of the NLCS between the Brewers and my Phillies.  Cole Hamels pitches eight shut out innings and the Phillies win 2-0 behind home runs by Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, sending them to the World Series.

The rest of them can be read in this week’s Best View.  I urge you all to check them out and leave your own dream doubleheaders here.  I’m interested in seeing what you have to say.
