I went to various Spurs games in the old Arena during 7th/8th grade which would make it '79-80ish. $5 seats in the nosebleeds! I'd say I was 12/13 at the time.

Don't know the exact date, but the event would be a Cincy Reds game in the early 70s.

Cleveland Browns-Pittsburgh Steelers game in Cleveland, 1975. It was, to put it mildly, an experience I will never forget.

Bat night for the 1984 Seattle "Anything can happen" Mariners vs. the Red Sox.

"Anything Can Happen" was the team logo and was on the bats as well.

I attended a number of Hawaii Islanders games with my grandfather from 1973 - 1975.
Sadly, the stadium is no more. I remember running around the bleachers and eating peanuts. I think I have a couple of baseballs that were fouled off.

1984 Orange Bowl Classic - Miami 31, Nebraska 30, Miami won its first national championship.

I remember that since my dad had given enough money to the school that he was a member of the "Hurricane Club" I got to go on the field after the game.

April 8, 1986 - Astrodome with my dad.

Rookie Will Clark thrills the crowd by hitting a home run in his first at bat, and off no less than Nolan Ryan. The Giants beat the Astros 83.

this is pretty sad, but I can't even remember my first sporting event.

It was either in 3rd or 4th grade for me back in 86, 87 or 88. I'm from Jersey and my best friend and his pops took me to a Nets game; I can't remember the opponent but the Nets got destroyed. Neways, I instantly became a Nets fan. Back then our best player was Dennis Hopson, hahahahha...the DARK AGES.

Around the same time, I went to a Devils game with then and they played the Mapleleafs. The only thing that I remember was that there was a fight and the Mapleleafs player got the living crap beat out of him as there was blood everywhere. That's how I became a Devils fan too.

Well... I guess with those two teams, it was a pro sporting event.

Whoops, missed the "pro"

Then it was a Mets game at Shea back in 1985. I can't remember who they played. I do remember that Gooden pitched for the Mets though.

In the mid 70's I had the pleasure of watching the Kansas City Kings play the NewOrleans Jazz in an official NBA game in Omaha, NE. Pete Maravich was the star of the game for the Jazz. The play I'll never forget was while he was standing under the opponent's basket, he rolled the ball the length of the floor to a fellow team member for an easy layup.

Don't remember what age, but i'm guessing around 10. Went to a North Stars game with my dad and my brother (not sure if there was a 4th with us, if there was, they weren't memorable i guess).

I completely remember it because we sat behind one of the goals, getting there kinda late, and I guess a lady 2 rows in front of us was taken to the hospital because she got hit by a puck in warmups. I flinched the entire game whenever someone took a slapshot.
