A buddy just called, has club level seats for the Steelers-Skins game Saturday night, FOR FREE. His offer is great but the timing sucks.
Unfortunately, my dad-in-law passed away on Thursday and his memorial srvice is on Saturday. Sorry, father-in-law trumps football on this one. I have no desire to be the POS who went to a pre-season game!

Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Yeah, you better not blow off the funeral, or you're a dead man.

Sorry to hear about your father-in-law.  Hopefully all is as well as can be expected.

There will be "other" preseason games to attend.

Thanks, guys, I'm still a little rattled over his passing.
Living in VA, I hope the Steelers kick some Deadskins ass, that would be very enjoyable.

Meh, preseason games aren't even really about who wins ("Yay, our third-teamers outlasted your third teamers!").  It's an eval tool for coaches and hardcore fans, but family comes first.

Now a regular season game...

I had to blow off a regular season game against the Clowns (again, club level) during Ben's rookie year because I had just come back from the Florida Keys and couldn't take more time from work. Now that sucked! Of course, it was kind of interesting being in the Keys when Hurricane Jeanne was tearing up the Florida coast just about 125 miles above us; I think that was Ben's first game as our starting QB.

Sorry to hear about your father-in-law, but preseason games are not the most exciting games to attend.  You are not missing much.  

Hell, I'm still trying to figure out why I get charged the same price for preseason games that I get charged for regular season games.

Fucking ripoff.
