In Response to Advice on going to Pats/Colts game.
[QUOTE]A friend of mine has been pestering about going to the Colts/Pats game. He's a Colts fan and he wants to see the Brady/Manning matchup before it's too late. They are both getting up there in age. Neither one of us have ever been to an NFL game. My reasons against it are: 1) I'm cheap. And tickets are going to be outrageous. I'm not going to miss the cash. But again, I'm cheap. It just doesn't seem like a good value. 2) I finally broke down and bought a big screen TV- 72 inch. Should be arrivng via freight any day now. It seems like it would be much nicer to watch the game in 1080p from my living room- where I can actually see everything. 3) This kind of ties in with #2. But driving 3 hours (each way) to sit in the cold for another 3 hours seems not that fun. To say nothing of the time spent parking and getting in and out of the stadium. That;s an entire day shot. Not to mention weekends are the only time I get to see my GF. And lately I don't even get Saturdays anymore- I'm working. It's a 4:00 game so she'll be out cold by the time I get home. 4) Like I said, I've never been to an NFL game. Even with good seats at some point, I wont really be able to see the action, correct? Where would be the best sections to look at when looking for tickets? Despite all these perfectly logical reasons, there's still part of me that wants to go. I'm hoping somebody that's been to one of these games can talk me into it. Is it really worth it? And what can I expect as far as being able to see game action? Also, I was going to google it. But does anyone know if Jeremy Jacobs does the concessions for Gillete? Because there is no way I'm giving that sleazeball a dime of my money. Ever.

I will be at that game. I will also be posting the week of the game to see who else is going so that maybe we can all meet up and tailgate. If I can come from NJ, you can do the 3 hours. A live game is an experience. Will it be cold? Hell yes. Bring hand warmers, extra layers of clothes, gloves, crap like that. You and well maybe your Indy fan friend are more than welcome to join us and anyone else from there for a large tailgate. We will have food, beer, beerpong. It is a blast. I am not sure how many hours before the game they let u in to tailgate, but that is when I will get there.
Part of the fun is meeting people, talking football and smack to the other teams fans, all in fun of course. Sharing food with other tailgaters, beer and booze too. It is a huge social event. Nosebleeds or great seats, it is all fun. Just bring enough clothing to stay warm. U can always leave extra in the car.
Dont know about the concessions, but we eat and drink so much ahead while in the lots that we barely buy anything while there. Plus our food is better.
I think apdynasty is going to that one as well as MVPkilla.
