Although Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is a longtime Ohio State fan, he has Michigan Stadium high on his list of stadiums to visit.
After attending World Series Game 1 on Tuesday, James posted on Instagram that he could check off the World Series on his “bucket list for sporting events.” On Friday, he was asked what other events were on that list. He noted the Kentucky Derby and F1 Grand Prix, according to ESPN.
He then rattled off a list of football stadiums he hopes to visit. Via ESPN:
“After I retire,” James said. “Those are some of my (goals): couple football stadiums, college football stadiums I’d like to go to … It has nothing to do about money and accessibility, it’s about my schedule.”
James later rattled off a handful of college stadiums that he wants to hit first: Notre Dame Stadium, Michigan Stadium (University of Michigan), Kyle Field (Texas A&M University), Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (University of Florida), Beaver Stadium (Penn State University), Neyland Stadium (University of Tennessee) and Doak Campbell Stadium (Florida State University). His top NFL targets are Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers) and Soldier Field (Chicago Bears).
After ESPN published its article about James’ bucket list, Michigan athletics’ Twitter account was quick to make him an offer.

James has already been to Ohio Stadium and attended the Buckeyes’ 2015 College Football Playoff championship victory in Dallas, so, despite his desire to visit The Big House, his OSU fandom is not in question.
