And I turned the ticket down! I must be nutz!!!!But the reality is that the ticket is $68, face value (a great deal) and then I add gas, tailgate food, beer and a sandwich (&drinks) after the game and I am looking at dropping about $125 on the cheap end. Then it is the stupid traffic.
The game is designated as a 'Milwaukee Season-Ticket Holder' game; when the Packers played games at the old County Stadium a whole different set of 'Season Tickets' were sold...when all games were consolidated in Green Bay, ticket holders in Milwaukee had a chance to grab them up. The gist of it, Hwy 41 becomes a vast caravan of drunken, football happy freaks for about three hours before the game and about three hours after the game. It is normally a short ride for me, but I no longer have the patience for a fifty mile drive filled with drunken fans and the extra traffic of hunters back from the woods.
I must be getting old! Passing up a Bear-Packer game, live and in person, to sit around and watch the game with Bubba and his friends and eat pizza and drink beer.
Or else I'm getting sensible. I'm not sure I like either explanation.
