The NBA All-Star game itself is a little weak (no one plays defense) but the weekend overall should be fun over in The Valley of the Sun. We decided to make a list of the best Phoenix-area sporting events over the years. While researching said list, we realized there have been some doozies of athletic contests played in dry heat. The Fiesta Bowl was hosted there from '71 to '06, and some of those were classics. 'Twas a tough list, although No. 1 wasn't too hard.
We think the game we're gonna put at No. 3 was overall better, but this sucka was for a national title. You want to get controversial right now? Sure. It was also Jim Tressel's last truly significant win. Ha, this'll end up on some OSU kid's Facebook page.
