365/270 Are you ready for some FOOTBALL!!!

Posted by Hubby.  I have a “bucket list” goal to attend a home game at every NFL stadium sometime during my lifetime.  Some good friends and I came up with this goal a few years ago and have tried to go to a different stadium almost every year.

On Monday, we were in Chicago to see the Bears play the Packers on Monday Night Football at historic Soldier Field.

The number of people that go each year varies (7 the 1st year for Green Bay, 3 the 2nd for Pittsburgh, and 5 this year), but it’s always a great experience.

The picture below is from our seats in the “nose bleed” section of the stadium.  All in all though, they were good seats, around the 40 yard line and with a clear view of all the action.

The best part was that we paid face value for the tickets ($85 each).  We went to Chicago without buying tickets ahead of time and had to resort to standing in line at the stadium for leftover tickets.  We stood in line for almost 5 hours and missed almost all of the 1st quarter but it was worth every minute of waiting once we got in.

There’s a lot more that could be said about Chicago, but my Dad always used to say that if you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything.  So, I’ll just let you know that we’ve got 4 down (including Detroit/Ford Field), 28 to go, and we’re already looking forward to next year.

West Coat trip anyone?
