    This has probably been covered here at some point...I was thinking yesterday how much I look forward to those 16 Cowboys games every year and tried to think of any other yearly sports moments that are automatic stopdowns for me. So I only got to 20. Those Cowboys games, the Super Bowl,and Sundays at the Masters, US Open and British Open. (I basically grew up on a golf course). Nothing else came to mind as a regular yearly event. And if the Cowboys aren't playing in it, the Super Bowl is the least important of those 20.

    If the Cowboys make the playoffs, that's another level up. No stopdowns for the other sports teams here unless they get to the playoffs, the Olympics are a hit-or-miss every four years, the US games in the World Cup come close for me every four years. But those 20 are the don't-miss every year.

    So what are yours?

    Of course, ALL Cowboys games.
    NFL playoffs through to the Super Bowl
    All WVU football and basketball games.

    I am the PA announcer for our local high school football team. (this is my 20th year) Football is big here, and our school has been very successful for decades. So all five home games and however many home playoff games we qualify for are huge for me.

    From the Sweet 16 to the Final Four to the Championship game.
    Masters
    NBA finals
    College World Series
    All golf Majors
    Little League World Series
    MLB World Series

    But that's about all. - LOL

    For me it's
    Every cowboys/longhorns football game
    Any champions league game involving barca or city, plus any game on after the group stages
    Every EPL/Fa city game
    Most, but not all barca games, since they usually beat the crap out of the bottom of la liga
    Every game of the World Cup and copa america
    Any game involving the us men's or women's national teams in soccer
    Any big tennis grand slam matches, including any time fed, nadal, djokovic or Murray play one another

    Any time Yu Darvish pitches
    And of course, any and every spurs game on TV here in Fort Worth
