Taking a Sunday Drive

September 11, 2008

I’ve been itching to go to a Seahawks game for a while now. Haven’t been to one in about 2-3 years, I think. My son has never been to one, and he’s been asking about it since at least last season, and maybe even the season before.

So out of the blue this week, I had this urge to find tickets for the home opener this Sunday. Ticketmaster had some tickets available, but they were the super-spendy Club Seats, minimum price about $225 per ticket. Found a few good auctions on eBay, and managed to win one yesterday morning! The tickets arrived today via overnight mail:

Gorgeous, aren’t they? We’ll be sitting up pretty high, but somewhere around the 40-yard line. These are from a season ticket holder who can’t make the game, and the final auction price was less than face value.

The Hawks might be lucky to score 10 points, but that’s okay. A day trip to Seattle for some NFL football with my #1 son is a guaranteed great day. Hope your Sunday ends up as good as ours will be!

    Well Matt, I see you are quite gifted and blessed, and have an eye for the most beautiful pic shots in the world. Congratulations on the tickets! I hope you don’t mind, I had to save a couple of your photos to my desktop; the sunset ones, the sun coming through the clouds,and the one with the rainbow colored sunset….sweet…nothing short of amazing!

    Karla – I don’t mind at all. Enjoy the Flickr photos and grab whatever you want for your desktop. Thx so much.

    And here I thought I was your only NFL going partner. ;^)

    Congratz to Sean!

    I live close to a great football crowd and have only ever been to one game. Tickets are just too damn expensive, but I am going to give it the old college try this year. I really want to try my hand at tailgating and getting the full ‘NFL experience.’ So far, no luck.
    Though I think if i did go, I would wind up photographing everything.

    They might need you to suit up at wide receiver…

    LOL at Todd’s comment. Funny but true! Sounds like a lot of fun; I’ve got to get up to Qwest one of these days just to experience the atmosphere. Have fun with Sean!

    Thanks guys – we’re both excited. I’d love to do some tailgating, too, someday. Todd/David — if you guys are ever headed up to a game, let me know. 🙂
