GQ just came out with a list of “12 Sports Pilgrimages Every Man Should Make.”

And we can already scratch two off our bucket list: Arrowhead Stadium and Allen Fieldhouse.

The list also gives a hat-tip to Mizzou.

“You already know you're supposed to go to the Masters before you die,” GQ’s editors write in their introduction.

“These are quasi-religious journeys, sure — but you're also supposed to have fun. So join us as we hit the greatest ballpark, field house, tailgate, road trip, and bike race in the land, plus the once-in-a-lifetime event that no American should miss.”

The Boston Marathon and taking in games at Wrigley Field and the Staples Center made the list.

A journey to “scream ‘Rock Chalk Jayhawk’ at the hoops cathedral of Allen Fieldhouse’” is No. 6 on the list.

Eating the world’s most delicious barbecue, in a parking lot, at Arrowhead, is No. 8.

(Check out who wrote about both those experiences – our old pal Joe Posnanski, former sports columnist for The Kansas City Star.)

The list also recommends skipping the NFL Draft but being there on the second and third days this year to watch Michael Sam historically become the first openly gay player drafted by a pro team.
