Whether it's a fourth quarter drive in the AFC Championship game, or a last second buzzer-beater in the opening round of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament... or a thousand other such moments, there's nothing like sports to captivate an audience and take you on an emotional roller coaster.
Best High School Football Clip Ever:
National Football League
LP Field in downtown Nashville is a great place to see an NFL game.
I created a 2002 NFL Mock Draft that I hosted here on LouPickney.com. It was something that I did for fun, but it drew an amazing amount of web traffic in a short amount of time. I decided to create a side business out of it, and thus DraftKing.com was born -- and still going strong ten years later and counting.
Major League Baseball
New York Yankees
The Yankees are the best franchise in all of sports, period. Note that I started cheering for them in 1988 when my friend Joe Martin gave me a pair of Yankees wristbands. I consider myself grandfathered in as a fan -- the outrageous team spending disparities hadn't yet begun at that point.
National Hockey League
There is nothing like seeing a Predators game live and in person. I still have possession of a puck from a Predators/Sharks game in December 1998, the team's inaugural season.
National Basketball Association
San Antonio Spurs
I became a fan of the Spurs when they drafted David Robinson, and I've been a supporter of them ever since then.
University of Evansville
Did you know that I own the domain AcePurple.com? I'm not sure how it was sitting out there unclaimed, but I snapped it up off the open market. Ace Purple is the University of Evansville's mascot.
