So, about that football game on Sunday. We lost. And that was a bummer. The rest of the experience? Fantastic.
We went with our friends Chuck and Cindy and they are season ticket holders and tailgaters extraordinaire.
We made friends with their friends, Brian and Kathy.
And we quickly realized that football tailgating isn’t really all that different from Jimmy Buffett tailgating. Lots of people with lots of food and drink in a parking lot.
And speaking of the food, it was fantastic, from quiche and sausage and fruit to chicken wings and pasta salad and bourbon marinated steak tips. The drinks weren’t bad either, and they were plentiful.
Our time in the parking lot passed all too quickly and we were soon heading for our seats. The excitement of walking into that stadium with all those fans was thrilling. And seeing the Pats take the field, hearing the National Anthem and experiencing the jets flyover was incredible. I loved every moment of it.
Until they lost, of course.
Even so, Dale and I really enjoyed living the high life for a few hours. Thanks for inviting us, Chuck and Cindy, we had a ball!
