First football game ever!

So a couple weeks ago I decided it would be nice to get Mike and I tickets to the Giants/Eagles game in December. Yeah right. Got about $800? I was extremely naive about ticket prices especially for good games. The Eagles and giants are bitter rivals. I've never been to a game and I'm really itching to go.

So I e-mailed my dad who has been known to get offered tickets to stuff from time to time and who may even be able to put out a casual, "Hey, anyone got tickets?" around the office. He told me he'd keep it in mind.

So a few weeks went by and just a few minutes ago I opened my inbox to see an e-mail from dad with the subject: You're going to the Giants/Eagles game. Lo and behold, 'tis true. Dad came through and got me two tickets to the game a week before Christmas at Giants stadium. Mike can wear his Giants jersey and I'll make him get me an Eagles jersey by then as a thank you gift for the ticket hook-up. hehe.

I am so excited. My first game. The Eagles better win even though I know I'll end looking silly cheering equally for both teams in my Eagles jersey. I really do like both teams a lot. But afterall, cheering for the visitor is always more fun in itself so I guess I will be an Eagles fan that day.

Look for me on tv. What a silly thing to say.

But I always look for my brother and sister-in-law at Seahawks games. I've yet to see them.

You ought to get two jerseys (preferably with the same number) -- one Eagles and one Giants -- split them down the middle and sew the left half of one to the right half of the other.

Then people will at least know you're not confused and accidentally chearing for both teams. Because that's what people will think -- stupid girl just jumped up and cheared for the Giants when she's wearing an Eagles jersey. LOL!
