Any MGSers reppin'?

Been perusing Stubhub and eBay...gotta say, it's awfully tempting.  My monster game attendence winning streak (2-0) could be just what they need to help put them over the top.

But damn, $500-$750 each depending on where you sit is...how do you say...fucking expensive?  If I'm gonna throw that kinda money and thensome out the window, I'd kinda like it to be a Super Bowl.

Given the fact that games I attend we lose at about a 75% clip, I'll save the money and all y'all the headaches and shattered remotes...

I'm thinking about it, but I'm also hoping to go to the Super Bowl (for as close to face value as possible) if we are all so fortunate and the Steelers make it that far. I don't think I can swing both, so I'm trying to see how realistic it is that the SB tix will be an option.

The view in the closed section, upper level end zone blows, but I'd love to be anywhere in the building for what will no doubt be a barn burner.

Nope, saving my money for the Super Bowl, if we happen to get that far. I already went a couple times this year, and the wife is pitching a fit about spending the cash (not to mention how much she bitched about how cold it was at the Cowboy game). So I figure I only have one more game I can squeeze out of her purse (yes, I hand over my paycheck becaue I don't want to deal with the bills)

NFL stats are fun. Licking stamps and writing bills blows. Besides, the wife is an accountant.

See what I'm sayin'?  You get a guy who'll shell out the money for Steelers tickets - AND FOR THE COWGIRLS GAME - and the wife bitches at him for spending the money.

Accountant or not, she shoulda known what she was in for....

I'd be all about spending that money.

I'm trying to get there but it's looking shady at best. I had a friend who had tickets lined up for me in Nashville if the Titans would have won..(Last and only time I'll cheer for the Titans and Lendale's fat ass) and now I have another friend who says he's about 75% sure he can get me tickets for Sunday. I'm not holding my breath, he's kinda shady when it comes to these things.

Btw, if the lord shines his grace on me and I do get tickets where is a good hotel to stay where it's not too far from the stadium? Thanks

So help me God, if he gets those tickets, I will make Brett disappear so that I can have the other one.
I'll do it.
I swear.

"Make Brett disappear"? Is that another euphemism on par with "pulling out too early?"

Coworker's daughter and son in law have season tickets, and I'm at the top of the list when they can't go.  Already went once this year with the tix (Chargers in Nov.) and once last year.  He tells me odds are they'll be available.  I'm supposed to know by 3pm Thursday.

Keeping the fingers crossed.  $125 apiece.  Need the money for the wedding this June, but can't pass up that price after paying twice that to go with kchop to the last AFC championship game at home, and we all know how that ended up!

Haha, oops!  I'm glad I got scammed then, because I was at the New England AFCC game too.  I was going to risk everything for the town of Pittsburgh for my own selfish desires.  I'm such a bad person.....

You need to get your priorities in order, man. 

Weddings come and go, but this is the Steelers...Ravens...@ home...AFCCG...middle of fucking January...Ben...Ward. ..Willie...Harrison.. .The Wig.  A lifetime of memories there.  A day you'll never forget.

Does that clear things up for ya?

Oh, and how many tickets would you score from your coworker and where are they?  Depending on the answer and if you're willing to take me, I might be willing to pay for you.

I'm going!!!!!!

500 section, 20 yard line.  Last time I was in these seats, we won.



And I'd gladly take you if you paid for me....but then the wedding wouldn't happen in June because wifey-to-be would cut my you know what off and run away.  Gotta love a woman who will sit out in the cold, screaming at professional football players with me, and who will kill me for not taking her!

That was my #1 priority when looking for a wife.
Well, almost #1.

Well, there's a feather in your cap.  She can't have it both ways.  Either ya got money for the wedding or ya both go to the game.  Win, win for you.  Enjoy.

It's going to be 22 degrees at kickoff with a light snow.  That's not bad at all. 

Bamf16, we sit not too far from where you will be on Sunday.  Great seats, we are high enough to see the plays develope and close enough to know who's making the plays.
