5 Things I Must do before Dying

by on January 5, 2009 updated January 5, 2009

1. Super Bowl: It’s a shame that someone that is as big of a sports fanatic as I am has never gone to possibly the world’s greatest sports event. Don’t give me the World Cup or the Olympics. I’ll take Super Bowl tickets any day.
2. Rolling Stones Concert: If Mick and the boys ever decide to drag their old, saggy behinds back onto the stage, I’m there. We’re talking arguably the greatest rock ‘n roll band of all time. And, let me tell you, I can rock with the best of them. So sign me up for the next set of Rolling Stones tickets.
3. The Masters: Along with a sports fanatic and a hard-core rocker, I’m also a golf addict. I can go out and chop up a course with the best of them. And, believe me, when I tee it up, I get money’s worth two fold. If you were to breakdown my round by cost per shot, I can’t be paying more than a nickel per shot. So maybe Tigers Woods, Phil Mickelson and the boys can team a few things … if I can get my hand on some Masters tickets.
4. Kentucky Derby: My favorite author, the late and loony Hunter S. Thompson, once went to the Derby and, allegedly maced an entire suite of big wigs. Put me down for a funky hat, a mint julip and some Kentucky Derby tickets.
5. Cirque de Soliel Love Tickets: If you disagree with me about the Stones being the greatest rock ‘n roll band of all time, then you better think it’s the Beatles. Any other band, except maybe Led Zeppelin or, for you youngsters, the White Stripes, does not belong in this argument. And since the majority of the Fab 5 has deceased, Cirque de Soliel tickets may be the second best thing.
