Friend who wishes to remain anonymous for reasons that will become obvious: Yeah, when the Packers were playing the Twins, I kept waiting for Brett to throw an interception.
Friend: My dad has four Packers [season] tickets, but I've never been to a game.
Me: Your dad has Packers* tickets? And you've never gone?
Friend: Yeah. He got eight when they used to play here, but now he just has four. But I've never been. I don't really care about football.
Me: I don't either, but I'd love to go to a game, just for the cultural experience!** Tell him that if he ever can't go to a game, SH and I will buy them from him. Maybe the four of us could go together.
Friend: Only in September or October. Not when it's cold.
Me: Oh. Yeah. You're right.
* Someone has to die for tickets to become available, basically.
** I went to my college games in Houston, but watching Rice play football is not very much fun. Unless we're playing the Aggies and can make their band mess up hahahahaha. We won maybe two or three games my freshman year and that was it. Then we lost almost every game. Want to win your homecoming game? Make sure it's when you play Rice.
I went to a few UT games when I was in grad school in Austin and that was more fun because Texas wins. But still, watching football when it is hot and humid is uncomfortable. I have never seen a pro football game.
