Random Events

Over the years I've attended a few random notable sporting events:

 

  • 2010 Men's NCAA lacrosse semifinal, May 29, 2010, Virginia vs. Duke, M&T Bank Stadium, with my son Charlie.  As exciting a LAX game as you will ever see.  The top-ranked Cavaliers, finishing a season they had dedicated to a slain teammate in the women's program, led throughout the first half but gave up seven consecutive goals in the second half to trail Duke 12-8 with 12 minutes to go.  Virginia came back to tie at 13-13 with just over a minute left.  Duke senior Max Quinzani scored with only 12 seconds left, giving Duke the 14-13 win.

  • 2013 Men's NCAA lacrosse championship, May 26, 2013, Syracuse vs. Duke on a beautiful day at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.  Duke, down 5-0 to start the game, went on a 16-5 run to ultimately win 16-10.  Faceoff man Brendan Fowler won 20 out of 28 faceoffs and was named most valuable player.
  • 2014 Men's NCAA lacrosse championship.  May 26, 2014, Notre Dame vs. Duke at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.  After scoring only 1 goal in the first 35 minutes of play and falling behind 8-3 by the end of the third quarter, Notre Dame pulled to within 1 goal with only a minute remaining, but lost the faceoff and eventually Duke prevailed 11-9, winning its second consecutive national championship.

  

  • 1994 Davis Cup, New Delhi, India.  I spent a year living in India, during which the U.S. (including Jim Courier) played a Round 1 Davis Cup match against India (winning 5-0).
