My bucket list

This morning Bob Pusateri [email protected] (blog | twitter) posted his bucket list, and was quickly followed by Brent Ozar (blog | twitter).  If we really think about, I'm sure we all have some semblance of a list of things we'd like to do before we die.  Well, to keep up with the Bobses, here's my list, in no particular order:

  • attend all 4 Grand Slam finals
    I've been to the U.S. Open multiple times, and have visited the grounds at Wimbledon off-season

  • attend a Stanley Cup finals game
  • raise at least one NHL player
    Hopefully combined with the previous bullet

  • visit Capo Rizzuto in Crotone, Italy
  • touch Stonehenge
    I've been, but the boundary was 100 feet away from the stones – totally anticlimactic
  • drive an Aston Martin
  • speak at PASS
    Surely 2011 is my year
  • contribute to another project like SQL Server MVP Deep Dives
  • see a UFO
  • make a difference

I am a passionate technologist with industry experience dating back to Classic ASP and SQL Server 6.5. I am a long-time Microsoft MVP, speak frequently at conferences, and write at SQLPerformance and MSSQLTips. I recently joined the team at Wayfair and hope to blog about some of the scale challenges I've already started helping to solve.

    How about seeing a UFO while doing donuts in the middle of Stonehenge in your Aston Martin???

    Holy crap Adam, you are onto something there. Maybe I can host a webcast during PASS from the Aston Martin while doing donuts in the middle of Stonehenge as a UFO flies overhead.  On NHL Draft Day.
