Which Championship would you want to see?

New, 48 comments

With the ultimate trophy on the line, which event would you want to be in attendance for?

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Happy Wednesday Nova Nation! Tonight is Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues. In what’s been a very back and forth series, someone is finally walking away with a trophy tonight.

Growing up I’d always heard that playoff hockey was the best thing in sports. You know, along with all the other “best things in sports” like the NCAA Tournament, the World Cup, the Super Bowl, etc. At the end of the day, championship games are just really exciting! It’s the culmination of an entire seasons worth of work, and only one team can walk away with the title. You can see why it’s so thrilling.

And so with a slow news day yesterday, it got me thinking. If you could go to any team sport Championship Game regardless of the teams playing in it, which would it be? Sure we’d all like to see the teams we root for, but take loyalty out of it for a minute and just think about it from the standpoint of seeing the pinnacle of a given sport. With that in mind, I leave the question to you Nova Nation!
