2009 State Games of America 

When: July 30-Aug. 2 2009

Having been fortunate enough to cover six Olympic Games through the years, I can tell you the opening ceremonies create an atmosphere unmatched in sport. Still, you can experience that feeling in miniature right here, today, at the 2009 State Games of America's opening ceremony, starting at 7 p.m. at the World Arena (3185 Venetucci Blvd., ticketswest.com). Thousands of athletes will march in, Olympic champion wrestler Henry Cejudo will light the State Games torch, and there'll be sports demonstrations, music by Martini Shot, a pyrotechnics show and a concert by American Idol alum Carly Smithson. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and 18 and younger. — Ralph Routon
