Top 12 Sporting Events Around The World


What’s better than getting locked into a cage with a bunch of crazy sports fans in Croatia? Or making giant signs saying “King Kong Stinks!” at a WWE match? Or perhaps finding ingenious ways to sneak alcohol into the Kentucky Derby?

Today Jason joins me to discuss our top 12 sporting events, from Argentina to Philadelphia (sorry Boston fans) we chat about what makes sporting events so special, and so universal.

We know that you have some great memories around sporting events (who doesn’t?), and I’m looking for suggestions to fill out my list of 100 sporting events to attend, so please, leave a comment below with your top games/matches/duels, whatever!

Do they even still have duels?
