1470 miles...just got to Miami yesterday. Left KC at 4:00pm on Sunday and arrived here on Monday at 3:00pm Miami time. Drove straight through the night! It's awesome to be here though! ROCK CHALK!

1331 miles to watch the Jayhawks defeat UConn in Hartford back in January, 1997. The Jayhawks went 18/19 from the freethrow line that afternoon and came back from a big margin early in the first half. But I'll break that tomorrow when I fly to Miami, 1505 miles (per Google maps) to watch us win the Orange Bowl.

San Francisco to Lawrence every year for the last five for the KU-MU game at Allen.

From Edmonton to Lethbridge in southern Alberta to watch my grandson Rob Klinkhammer play hockey in the WHL. That is a 6 hour drive. Now we are considering flying to Norfolk, Virginia to catch an Admirals game there and watch Rob again. That's American Hockey League. BTW - he scored a goal last night against Wilkes-Barre. Hooray Robbie.

Amen. I won't even travel as far as reaching for the remote to turn on the TV to see one.

I'm waiting for the question, "How far have you traveled to avoid having to see a game?".
