- So earlier this
year I did what's probably the most "CEO" thing
ever: bought the most expensive season tickets for the
Rams with Don. 50 yardline section, Row 2. Truthfully?
We may only go to 1 or 2 games and plan to sell the
rest to recoup our money and hold our place in line
for when the new stadium opens. Then again, new
stadium = personal seat licenses which is a scam
I will have no part of. Mainly because
I just, don't, like, watching football in person.
If this were the Lakers? Yeah, I'd be all over this.
For football, unless it's The Buckeyes? Not exactly a
passion. I am happy that LA has a team and
I can see taking the family to a game or two in
the future, but they're too young now.
- However, game one
meant one thing: ZEKE. Ezekiel Elliot was drafted by
the Cowboys and is set up to absolutely destroy the
competition with that offensive line. I am
not a Cowboys fan, but goddamnit am I rooting
for them now. Zeke is probably my favorite player on
the Buckeyes since Eddie George. He has the right
combination of skills to translate to the NFL and the
bar for him is HIIIIIIIGH. So Don and I took
Jimmy to the game so we could literally TALK to Zeke
we were so close...
- How fun is that.
Man, seeing a game that close is really intense. It's
obviously not the greatest view for seeing plays
develop, but it's all a catch-22 (which is why
football is awesome on TV). Once that 5-10 second play
is done, you want to see all the close-up stuff and
man, sitting this close to the sideline is unreal.
Just watching what the players do in between plays and
again being close enough to TALK to them? Wow.
I mean, it was very fun. Even got Zeke to give us
an O-H! Although he seemed confused by it all: like,
my first game in the NFL and I'm doing Buckeye
chants?! Ha. You'll always be a Buckeye, brother.
- Unfortunately they
didn't play him yet, he's got a tight hamstring issue,
but seeing him suited up and going through warm-ups:
just awesome. He really has the world on his shoulders
this year, far too much for a rookie, but if anyone
can pull it off: he can.
- Also -
THE RAMS! First game in LA in over 20 years:
electric. 90-fucking-thousand people showed up. From
- "Los Angeles
serenaded the Rams with largest crowd to ever watch a
preseason football game in United States history with
nearly 90,000 fans in attendance. The official
attendance for the game was
- That's crazy.
AND?!??! It was a great game. Comeback win for the
home team! Wow. Just, wow. Very fun, very
- ...and I'm still
gonna sell every ticket possible. Why? Because my
family won't dig it now. The kids are too young, the
games are too long, the travel is too hard. I'll
happily take them all to a Laker game this year, but
even that may be tough at their age. Football is a
LOT more boring to kids as it's confusing as fuck
with a ton of down time. Outdoors, sun is HOT, just
not really a family event right now. But as an
investment? We'll do juuuuuuuuuuust fine.
- Welcome Home Rams!
