    Countless football (soccer) games of many different teams, unfortunately a few rugby games, and a lot of boxing matches here and in the USA. I'm hoping to see my first NBA game when the Lakers play here in October, as well.

    I was at the game where the foul ball bounced off of Jose Cansecos head over the wall for a home run. Carlos Martinez hit it.

    Been to Wimbledon a couple of times, watched a bit of cricket when I was young and foolish. Had a season ticket at Charlton football club for the past few years.
