- How monumentally
cool is this? I can't even begin to imagine, as a
kid... getting to do this...
- ...in an NFL
stadium - 5 months after the SUPERBOWL was there...
and our home team won.
- WHAT? Watch
- It boggles my mind
that this was even allowed. And for a grand total of
$20 a ticket and FREE parking AT the stadium.
Parking which is $60 for Season Ticket holders and in
the $80-$100 range for us normal fuckers. And we're on
the field. I just... the kids will never
understand how cool this was.
- Also, the field is
pretty badass. I think the field for the Akron
Rubberducks was the same? But there's this black
rubber mesh that surrounds the blades of grass that
REALLY feels like grass... but like the best possible
type of grass ever. It was so awesome to run around on
and as you saw in the video? Unless I lose a lot of
weight VERY quickly - that was the last time I ever
beat my kid at a 40 yard dash. She's super quick to
begin with... but man - being over 200 pounds sucks
ass. I'm working on it...
- The event was
basically chaos with too many rules and too little
foresight into how things would play out. Those
plastic barriers not being attached to the ground is
just ridiculous, but I have to imageine anything
sturdier would've fucked with the grass so what could
they do? The rules were worthless as there was no way
to enforce them - and they didn't even have jerseys
for sides. So all the ____ vs. ____ match-ups
were impossible unless it was boys vs. girls.
- They also totally
should've just split the field down the middle and let
adults play on one side and kids play on the other.
All that being said - the kids rocked it. They bounced
off the adults so well. Well Vienna did anyway - she
was a fucking pinball. Cam got knocked over and had to
find someone to call us at one point but he was
fine... just a little bruised ego.
We ended up leaving about an hour early and that was
mostly due to the randomness of the mayhem. I really
feel like they could've paid a few dozen volunteers
and did capture the flag or legit "one-hit you're
down" like they do with paintball... but then again? I
can't fathom they made a DIME off 3-4,000 people and
renting the ENTIRE STADIUM for a night. Ya
know? I cannot understand how that was something they
could do, ya know? What just happened!?!? How were we
fucking around on THAT field?
Oh well. It happened, it's a journey entry and this
summer is freaking insane. Cannot believe we aren't
even half-way through yet. Jesus.
