    In chronological order I've been to these.

    NBA Omaha Civic Auditorium
    KC/Omaha Kings and the Iconic NY Knicks in the early 70's (W. Reed did not play but did see Frazier, Monroe Debuscher, Bradley and some tall,lanky, curly headed no namer buy the name of Phil Jackson as well as Sam Lacey and Nate the "Skate Archibald for the Kings)

    MLB Shea Stadium
    1976 The Mets and the Big RED Machine. Got to see Seaver pitch. (early spring -froze to death in the stands)
    1977 Kaufman Stadium - have been there twice since
    1982 The first run of dozens of games at the Metrodome over the next couple of decades, including the very last baseball game played there.
    PS I personally loved the Dome. When I have to travel 8 hours to see a game I want to make Damn sure there is going to be one. Never had the worry at the Dome. : )
    2002 Chicago trip both Komisky and Wrigley in the same day !!!!!!!!
    1997 and 2004 brought trips to Denver to see the Rockies vs Giants and Cubs
    Haven't been to a game at Target field but attended a recent Twins Fest a few years ago at Target Field
    2019 Target Field Vs the Braves
    NFL
    Three different trips to the Metrodome to see the Vikings - the first was 1998 Playoff game vs the Cardinals ( I know they didn't win it all that year but the '98 Vikings may be the most overall impressive team I've ever watched- including all of the recent power-house teams) and the most recent Farve vs the Bears


    Would obviously love to have seen more but travel distance and too many irons in the fire make it very difficult.

    PS
    Adding just for kicks and grins several games at old Rosenblatt Stadium including a few CWS games, Salt Dogs in Lincoln and the 1982 NCAA Wrestling National Championships at Ames, Iowa. GO HAWKEYES !!!!

    As for the MLB game, it was Sunday, July 15, 1962. The Mets played the Giants in a doubleheader. I was a budding Mets fan and my father was a Giants fan. I bought the tickets for him as a birthday present; probably as much a present for me! I think they were $ 3.50 each! Mays, McCovey, Cepeda. I remember the Mets were losing badly in the second game and my Dad suggested we might leave. I told him the Mets were known for rallying back (tho' they rarely won) and, sure enough, they scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth to narrow it to 9-8, the score by which they lost. Great memories.

    The NFL game was really an AFL game at that time. The New York Titans played the Dallas Texans. I think it was November 11, 1962. I went as part of a group from our Church, maybe the Scout group. Again, my Dad was there, and I remember this large group of kids having lousy seats, and him slipping the usher some money and, all of a sudden, we had seats on the 40 yard line! Of course, there were only about 6,000 people there!
