    Since we still have a week before training camp starts thought I'd throw this general discussion out

    If you could see it, what historical event(s) would you like to see?


    I'll throw two out

    1. The signing of the Declaration of Independence
    2. I'd love to have seen the completion of Solomon's temple in Israel

    I'd have liked to have been at the first battle of Manassas during the Civil War. People actually came to see the fighting, and ended up in the middle of a war!

    I also wish I could have attended the royal wedding in 1981, and helped out at the World Trade Center after 9/11. I almost went, too, but they got an influx of healthcare workers right after the attacks, and as it turned out, very few people to treat.

    I guess witnessing your own birth would be pretty cool.

    yeah seeing the birth up close is not recommended viewing. I'd just swear there'd be some Back-to-the-future esq time paradox that by seeing your birth the whole universe explodes or something :lol:
