So much of my life has been centered around playing/watching/talking sports. My earliest memory as a sports fan was October 1986. I was 7 years old and remember my father stomping around the house after the groundball went through Buckner’s legs. Since that time, I have been fortunate enough to attend a good number of sporting events, and each experience comes with a unique story. In August 1998, I was in Chicago with a friend to watch the Cubs/Cardinals and McGwire/Sosa. In December 2003, 28 inches of snow forced my dad and I to listen to the Patriots/Dolphins game on the radio as we were stuck in traffic on Route 1, a mile away from the Gillette Stadium parking lot. I was in Yankee Stadium for the “bloody sock” game and never once realized that I was witnessing sports history.
Today, I try to get to as many sporting events as possible. But with a full time job, and an expanding family, it’s becoming more and more difficult to get to a game. This is how the idea for viewmyseats.com came about. I wanted to create a place for fans to exchange their sports stories and experiences. My hope is that viewmyseats.com will be a place for insightful sports commentary and fan generated tips that will help others maximize their experience at the ballpark/stadium/arena. This blog is dedicated to the sports fan. Send us your pictures, share your experiences. Enjoy the view!
