This is a thread I've been meaning to start for a while. Whenever I'm on a road trip with buddies or sitting around at a bar, we often get into a conversation of "Top 5...(fill in the blank)," on a host of different topics. It's always fun to hear peoples top 5's of many different categories and most guys can rattle off a Top 5 pretty quickly. Though it's hard sometimes to limit it to a Top 5 but let's set that as the criteria otherwise the lists get too long.

Pick any topic you want and list your top 5. I'll throw some out to get the juices flowing and we can come back to this thread over the coming weeks/months/years and add more topics. My only ask is we avoid "Top 5 politicians/presidents" etc. as that can steer the conversation in an entirely different direction.

Alright GopherHoler's, let's hear your Top 5 (fill in the blanks!)

Go Gophers!!

I call major bias on your part to put SD first on the list! That being said, no Sin City? WTF!

Ha! Sin City and New Orleans are two cities I love to visit, but both I need to leave after 48-72 hours to make sure I have any money left and to ensure I didn't get herpes on accident. :drink:
