Packer Fun!

Glenn & I went to a Packer football game against the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas. I'd never been to a professional football game and Glenn hadn't been since 1969. What a Blast! Okay, yes, the Packers lost and Favre got hurt. If we'd been watching it on TV we would've both been really bummed. I admit we weren't happy that we lost BUT we had so much fun it was hard to be as bummed as usual.
The fun began before we even left California. As soon as we entered the terminal at Burbank airport a guy saw my Packer jersey. He was wearing a Cowboy T-shirt and began ribbing us. Turned out that half the people on the plane were going to the game. Unfortunately for us most of them were Cowboy fans. Even the pilot got in on the fun. As we began taxing out he announced that the "charter flight for the Dallas Cowboys" was leaving now.
Can you tell who Jon & Tracy were rooting for?

We went to the game with the couple who got the tickets for us. Jon works with Glenn. (Thank you for getting us the tickets Jon) Our seats were in the upper deck in the end zone near the press box. I don't think there are any bad seats in the stadium. We could see great. I think almost half the fans were Packer fans. Most of the fans around us were Packers. So much fun!
First look at the field from our seats.Favre goes for a pass

We returned to California the next day, drove home from the airport, repacked our suitcases and drove up north for an anniversary weekend. We spent 3 nights/2 days at Sycamore Mineral Springs. Very relaxing.
Dinner at McLintocks restaurant. One of our favorite places to go. If you've never tried it, go next time you're near Pismo. The food is great. Check it out here.

If there is one thing that I remember about Glenn is that he is a HUGE Packers fan! It looks like you guys had a blast in your pictures. What fun!

That sounds like so much fun! What a blast. I have never been to a professional football game. I'm not sure why...I've done baseball, basketball and even hockey. I think it would be fun. I love football. Hope there wasn't too much fighting on the plane! ha ha.
