Sporting events. @ 12:06 pm

I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: "Staring at the Sun (acoustic)" by U2

Out of curiosity, which U2 songs have you guys heard played at professional sporting events?

I know being raised in a house of NBA fans, I hear Streets at the opening of tons of games. And yesterday I hear Mysterious Ways while watching football. However, I was just wondering how many and which ones have been used that ya'll know about. There must be a lot, or so I'm guessing...

And by the way, thank you all for your input on the cd I'm making ... I used a lot of your common choices! ;)

beautiful day is used as the themetune to Match of the Day (or something) here in the UK, which is a football tv programme, so that probably gets played at football matches, i wouldnt know.

It's not Match Of The Day, it's ITV's football programme The Premiership.

Yeah, I think that was the game? Haha. I wasn't paying attention, my brother was watching it. But the both of us being U2 fans looked at each other... then he turned up the volume.

Yeah, I heard it too. Because I was at that game! :D Me being a huge Redskins fan. FedEx Field. The U2 song was the only thing to cheer about, though.

"Desire" was a common song in sports games here. I heard at while attending an NHL game involving the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings.

They used 'Beautiful Day' for a game playback montage of the Patriots winning something...

'Elevation' gets a lot during the footy season, but the song I hear the most is actually 'Clocks' by Coldplay. Every sports commercial plays it, and every sports event has it too.

I did once hear a U2 song at the cricket one or two years ago ... but I honestly can't remember which it was. Might've been Beautiful Day, Streets, or With Or Without You. It was New Zealand versus South Africa at the 'Gabba (Brisbane Cricket Ground) anyway, and hooray, New Zealand won!

I also frequently hear Beautiful Day and One (and occasionally others) during portions of sports shows.
