    I was at the Camden Yards game when Queen Elizabeth visited. What a PITA that was!

    And we went to an O's game 5 days before he broke the record and even that was pretty incredible...

    Forgot about that one, she met Reggie Jackson not long after he was in a Naked Gun movie attempting to assassinate the Queen!

    I've been at the "old" Yankee Stadium for some special nights including Workd Series clinching wins. The craziest thing was Bat Night back when I was a youngster in the late 80's. They gave out mini bats. The equivilent of Billy Clubs. The stadium was a rough place to begin with those days, but that night was unreal. Nothing like handing out 20000 weapons, adding alcohol and hoping for the best.

    6-14-96 Cal Ripken Jr. 2216 consecutive games in KS. Didn't even know about the record, went for my brothers birthday and they gave me an "I was there" card.

    Dice-K's first win in Boston (Huge deal at the time)

    Red sox hitting back-to-back-to-back-to-back HR against the Yankees at Fenway.
    Downsizing my AJ collection. If you are looking for a specific card (non-multi player), PM me, I may have it.

    The weeks leading up to Ripken breaking the record were pretty cool with them counting down the numbers in the middle of the 5th inning every game. My uncle bought about a week's worth of games around the record breaker at the start of the season so I was there quite a bit.

    Booooooo. Was an A's fan then. Remember Glenn Braggs breaking a bat over his back on a swinging strike follow through. Beast

    Bonds tying ruth

    I was actually in the seats right above where the ball landed. You could see my buddy running down the stairs to the railing on Sportscenter that night.
