Been There...Done That

Yesterday we brought a new iPhone into the world. It is a 32 gig replacement for Gigi's old 1st generation iPhone. It is much faster than her old iPhone and it comes with some fancy compass that gives out the exact coordinates of where she is in case she needs to order some air or artillery support.

I am going back down to the coast today to see some clients, load up on some seafood, and tow the RV back home. Just call me Captain Carbon.

Sunday is our final home game against the Saints. It promises to be a cold and very windy day. Right now they are calling for temps in the upper 30's with a steady wind of 15 MPH gusting to 29 MPH. That should put the wind chill in the solid 20's.

Gigi doesn't get it. Why would I go to a game where our team has no chance of a playoff and will likely loose to a great team and the weather promises to be miserable?

Because it is the NFL....big time tackle football. There will be cooking, grilling, laughs, yelling, adult beverages, music, pageantry, more laughs, and sports history being made. To stand in any football bowl give me a rush. To be in my home bowl in my home seats cheering my team with friends is about as big of rush as I get here.

I enjoy snorkeling and hiking about as much so image my intensity when I hike to Jack's Bay in St Croix to snorkel.

It is never been there done that for any of these activities.

I'm of the same mind as Gigi. Why subject yourself to such misery when you can stay warm and cozy at home?

I field the same questions about every Bomber game.

It's the whole experience of tail gating, hanging out with buddies, and THEN watch our team get destroyed, only to be the first in line to re-new our tickets for next year.

I prefer my football on TV, too. However I would love to attend an Army/Navy game and a true Green Bay winter game just to see if I could survive the experience.

I have a friend that I tailgate with and he attended the Army Navy game this year. It said the tradition was unbelievable.

Same guy went to a Green Bay game once wearing everything he owns and was freezing to death. He got his picture made beside a guy in shorts.
