THE THRILL-SEEKERS EXPRESS

THE ULTIMATE WORLD TOUR FOR SPORTS FANS RANGES FROM OAHU TO BASE CAMP AT MOUNT EVEREST

AN ANONYMOUS sports fan once said, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the places and moments that take our breath away.” OK, I don’t know if the guy who said that was a sports fan (or even a guy), but I do know that for those of us who love sports, the thrill of seeing an epic event or storied arena can be close to the meaning of life. We fans are thrill-seekers. We are also memory collectors—memory hoarders, to be more precise, and as we check items of our bucket lists, those checks become prized mementos. And our personal sports bucket list becomes an impatiently tapping toe: Time’s a-wastin’.

The long goodbyes of Derek Jeter and Kobe Bryant over the past few years, and the inal bell for Muhammad Ali and Gordie Howe, remind every fan that the old saw, wait till next year, is not always the best advice. The urgency of a sports bucket list comes not just from our own ticking clock but from the buzzer that always sounds on teams, on arenas, on athletic careers.

The best way to see all your treasured athletes and venues is in person, of course, but this quick round-the-world fantasy trip, adapted from The Sports Bucket List: 101 Sights Every Sports Fan Should See Before the Clock Runs Out by Rob Fleder and Steve Hofman (HarperCollins, May), ofers, in pictures and a few words, a tempting glimpse and a goad to action. There’s still time left on your clock, but it’s always running.

About Newsweek International

THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA James Comey talked too much. He talked too much about Hillary Clinton’s emails. And then he talked too much, too late, about the Russians and Team Trump. Both exercises got him fired. President Donald Trump and his most rabid advisers among them self-proclaimed dirty trickster Roger Stone, according to some accounts felt they had an opening to take down Comey. They thought it would be a clean kill, just like their immigration executive orders. Again, they were wrong.
