Clubhouse Chatter: What game do you wish you could have covered?

What our columnists have to say as they wait for the games to resume.

I'd say the 1991 NBA Finals games in Los Angeles. It was the first time the Bulls were there, great location. That might be the one time I felt physically sick to my stomach standing in the old paste-up room reading our stories, just wishing I could be there. If time travel is included in this question, I often wonder what it would be like to cover the Jerry Sloan-Norm Van Lier era Bulls of the early '70s, DePaul in the late '70s or Bears games at Wrigley Field.

I was born one year after the 1960 World Series, but I have read about and seen so much of it, it almost feels like I was there. Growing up in Pittsburgh, I latched on to players like Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell and Dave Parker and got to watch some great baseball in my early days. The '60 World Series would have really been something to witness in person. Not given much of a chance against the powerhouse Yankees, the Pirates got the series to Game 7 and won it all on one of the greatest moments in history - Bill Mazeroski's home run leading off the ninth inning. Not only did Pittsburgh beat New York 10-9 to win the Series, Game 7 lasted just 2 hours and 36 minutes.

I wish I had seen the "Miracle on Ice" in person. But I would have rather watched it as a fan than covered it. When you're working, it's just about getting the job done. It's a great job, but it's a job like any other. There's nothing about it that resembles being a fan.

The Masters. To be able to walk Augusta National and follow the best golfers in the world while they play the most iconic major in golf? Yes, please. Sign me up. Hopefully this can happen before my career is over. And who knows? Maybe I'd win the lottery to play the course with other media members on Monday. Hey - one can dream.
