33 Sporting Events in 2008 — Can I get to 50 in 2009?

On another messageboard I frequent, various challenges are posted — can you read 50 books in a year, go to 24 concerts in a year, etc? One of them is can you attend 50 sporting events in a year. In 2007, I made it to 49, but flu and shortness of cash during a long Jackets’ homestand in December caused me to fall short.

This year I didn’t even make it that close — made it to 33 (not counting days I went to Jackets’ prospects camp, training camp, etc). October – December were write-offs for me, with the exception of the Crew playoff games, and a few Jackets’ games. But here is the list:
