- the Front Range
White sox fan? Noice! You guys are gonna be good this year.I was 3 years old for the late 80s teams, so can't speak to it. I was a freshman at Illinois for the Elite 8 Arizona game. I watched it in my girlfriend's (now wife's of 13+ years) basement on spring break and then we drove to Rosemont just to try to get a glimpse of the team (we didn't, but it was still fun to try).
Non-professional best moments of my life:
2) Births of both kids
3) 2005 World Series Game 2 attendance in person
4) Watching the Illini in the Elite 8 in 2005 in my girlfriend's basement
I'm not sure if any professional moments would rank in those Top 4...interesting thought experiment.
The 2005 team had a few games like this, total domination. We’ve not seen that yet this year until yesterday. That gives me hope for our NCAA run. We are improving.
