Happy New Year! January 2, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in life.
I went to my first ever NLF football game yesterday — and my first ever pro-sport game here in Chicago. Despite having previously lived here for 10 years and for 5 of them I was less than 3 blocks from Wrigley field. It was a Bears vs. Packers game. And old rivalry. Going in the comment was “Bears are really doing well, and the Packers suck!” Going out it was 26-7, Packers. I know nothing about football, but the number of turn overs seemed a little high… It could have been the Packer’s QB’s last game (after something like 16 years).
The tickets were free. They were corporate tickets — worth 300 bucks! I’d like to say I’ve seen how the other half lives, but hell, if that is how the other half lives there is no way I’d go to one of these things paying the regular price: I’m just not that kind of fan. Still, they were good seats, and I could see just about everything going on. So it wasn’t a bad experience for a first-time visit.
Afterwards we ended up at a party. Now that was fun and more my speed. I took a few pictures there.
I hope everyone has a great New Year!
