So, Spacebee got a hold of some kick-ass Packers tickets to last night’s game against the Bears at Lambeau. The night was Super Fun, in that my brother’s fiance grandly provided us with a free place to park across the street from the stadium and that our tickets were in the end zone and on the aisle. We also got there about an hour and a half early, so we had time to wander the stadium for awhile. Spacebee’s coworker and husband were also there, and my brother and his fiance had tickets as well, so the six of us drank the good drink and kicked it in the Lambeau atrium before game time.
Of course, Green Bay ended up losing the game, and I had to hear a shitstorm from Bears fans all the way out of the stadium, but whatever. Just like the Badgers did the day before, the Packers lack of 2nd half offense and defensive coverage ensured the loss. *shrug* whaddya gonna do? It was the first regular season game I’d been to at Lambeau, and I got to see a touchdown in the end zone we were sitting in, so I got my thrill. The win would have been icing on the cake; I just had a good ol’ time.
Afterwards kinda sucked, though. Late in the evening spacebee brokered a deal at work so that she didn’t have to come in at 7am Monday. We planned on ditching the car at a motel, and partying with the spacebee’s coworker up in Green Bay or Appleton. However, once we tried to get a room we found out that pretty much all of Wisconsin was sold out. We drove out of Green Bay, and stopped at 3 hotels in Appleton (“Sold out, but try Oshkosh!”) and then moved on to Oshkosh (“Sold out, but try Fon Du Lac!”) before deciding to just drive the rest of the goddamned way home. We got in at 4am this morning: ugh. I know that it was kinda stupid to assume we could get a room in Green Bay, but come the fuck on. It was late on a Sunday night; I didn’t expect every single person to stay behind after the game. Plus, R U JOKIN ME that there wasn’t a hotel room as far south as Oshkosh? Whatever, I learned a valuable lesson.
Finally, not to be a dick, but how do you and your wife calculate approximate driving times, wwhazz? You said it would take 3+ hours, but we were going the speed limit the whole way and we got to the Hortonville exit off 41 in about 2 hours, and then at Lambeau in two and a half. Do you guys drive real slow? Do you always hit a ton of traffic?
