A week ago I got to experience a new first.
J decided to take me to last week's Monday Night Football game
and it was the first NFL game I have never been to.
He's been to a handful of games both in CO and CA but would always go with his buddies. It came up after the last time he went that I had still never been and to my pleasant surprise he decided to take me to this game!
I've never been a die-hard football fan but have always enjoyed watching the games and rooting for the Navy and Orange. Plus it was such a different experience actually being at the game as opposed to just watching it on TV. We got to see the skydivers enter the stadium, got to enjoy a few cold beers and had many high-fives with the excited crowd around our seats.
The weather was perfect that night, our seats were along the 45 yard-line even though they were high up and the best of all was the company of my husband without worrying about all the studying I should have been doing.
Who knows when I'll get the chance to go to another game thanks to the crazy month of October I have coming up but I am so glad I finally got to my first NFL game and enjoyed a night of freedom when I could.
Plus it doesn't hurt that they killed the Raiders ;-)
