sports timeline

Here are some sports events I attended that have great meaning to me. Feel free to add your own events.

  • June, 1974: at the old Boston Garden, sixth game NBA finals, nosebleed seats, Kareem Abdul Jabbar hits a sky hook in the second overtime against the Celtics to send the series back to Milwaukee.
  • June 14, 1976: at the old Boston Garden, fifth game NBA finals, nosebleed seats, after the crowd had poured onto the court thinking the game over and Paul Westphal called a timeout he knew his team didn’t have resulting in a technical foul but insuring that the ball would be inbound at midcourt, Garfield Heard hits a 22 foot turnaround jumper with one second on the clock to send the game into triple overtime before Boston finally wins it 128-126.
  • September 12, 1979: at Fenway Park, seats along the first-base line, Carl Yastrzemski get his 3000th hit. I still have the ticket.
  • 1975 World Series: front row seats along the third-base line, every game except the memorable sixth game – I had a meeting that night!
