Staff Pick: Monster Jam at Nationwide Arena

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

Bro, Monster Jam is so legit there's even a Monopoly game based on its likeness. The game pieces are auto tools, and instead of buying real estate you buy monster trucks and souped-up extras to testosteronize your sweet fleet.

Monster Jam is the best monster truck show you can attend, thanks in no small part to the mammoth beacon of tongue-and-cheek destruction that is Grave Digger, the monsteriest monster truck of them all. Baby monster trucks long to be as wonderful as he.

Cheering on a 10,000-pound piece of metal as it crunches a car like a potato chip releases just as much pent-up rage as pushing someone around in a mosh pit. Fact.
