The Superdome. New Orleans, LA. 1985. Handoff to William "Refrigerator" Perry who goes rumbling into the end zone for a touchdown. No, I'm not just reminiscing about the 25th anniversary of the Chicago Bears' Super Bowl XX victory. Instead, I am dreaming of a scenario where viewers can relive famous sports moments, not just on DVD, or on ESPN Classic, but rather in 3D. So, grab your time traveling gear, and let's take a trip down memory lane for some of the most memorable moments in recent Chicago sports history. After all, we're not here to start no trouble, we're just hear to do the 3-Dimensional Shuffle (ouch...)
Repeat the Three-Peat
I have some fond memories of the Bulls dynasty runs during the early '90s. Watching Michael Jordan live during his prime was an experience that I had from the nosebleed seats, and I was grateful for that. However, what I would give for a courtside seat to see "The Shot," "The Shot Part II," or "The Shrug." Of course, I can't travel back in time, nor would I have the funds or the connections to finagle such a seat. Thus, a 3D version of the Bulls championship runs would be a great addition to any Chicago sports fan's collection.
Do the Bartman
This one is going to be painful Cubs fans. Why on earth would I want to relive the 2003 NLCS where my beloved Cubs were 5 outs away from reaching the World Series? Kind of how you want to know who shot JFK, I want to experience that fateful foul ball, plus the grounder that went through Alex Gonzalez's legs, and perhaps, I can shout just enough to help Alou get to that ball, or A-Gon to shag that ball. Despite those painful scars, the playoff run was truly memorable, and if the neighborhood vibe was any indication, I'm sure the experience inside Wrigley was that much more electric. Strap on those 3-D glasses, and let's experience history, even if it's to remind us of what could have been.
