    My answer is the same as yesterday's--that dumb BTS concert. 90% of the people sang every word to every song. It was horrifying.

    Number two for me would be The Hardy Boys returning at Wrestlemania 33.

    Tayshaun Prince hitting a shot to beat Florida at Rupp is way up there too, but nothing can top Korean Pop.

    So what is yours?

    I was at the Seahawks/Texans game 2 years ago which was an absolute thriller. When Wilson hit Jimmy Graham for the go-ahead score with 21 seconds left, Seattle was rocking. Final score of 41-38.

    Louisville at Clemson again in 2016. That place was deafening, and we were all the way at the top.

    The other sporting event that stands out to me is Louisville at UK in 2007. When Stevie Johnson caught that long pass that was the game winning TD, that place absolutely exploded. It was crazy loud.

    Metallica in the Yum Center was awesome as well. Everyone knew all the words to every song. Gave you chills.

    Wrapped up with Enter Sandman. I bet that place went crazy when the guitar started at the beginning.

    I've got some pretty cool videos of some of the more popular songs, Sandman being one of them.

    Gallatin County vs. Owen County. 2007 8th Region All A Championship at Eminence. Place was packed. People sitting in the aisle of the balcony. Possibly a fire hazard. Couldn’t hear yourself think.

    I wish I’d gotten to attend a WWF event back in the Stone Cold heyday to hear the pop when that glass broke.

    When he interfered to help Mankind win the title, for example.

    Louisville vs. No. 1 Syracuse in the final game at Freedom Hall. Jerry Smith to Kyle Kuric for an alley-oop to put the Cardinals decisively in control with 2:30 to play. Nobody had any clue who Kyle Kuric was before that day. We all learned.

    I've never heard anything like it.

    It helped that they kept honoring former teams and players during every single timeout instead of running ads. Kept the place at a constant roar during the entire second half. When you start from an elevated baseline, those big moments are even more punctuated.

    Yeah, that's a great one. I still watch that DVD from time to time.

    That or Adam Dunn's walk-off grand slam to beat the Indians -- both were deafening and stranger-hugging moments.

    The 2007 #5 WVU at #18 USF college football game in a packed Ray Jay. The place was deafening the entire game, so much so that even Sean McDonough made mention of it during the broadcast. When Ben Moffitt picked off a Pat White pass and returned it for a TD, in the 1st quarter, I thought my head was going to explode.

    Jay Bruce clinching the division in 2010. Not even close really.
