We have gone to live NFL football games when it was a sponsored trip by the company we worked for back in the day. Bus trip with hotel and game tickets as part of the package. The bus trip was more fun than than the game. Big bar set up in the back seat, and party on. Dropped off at the front gate and picked up at the same. Pretty good weekend. I did get in trouble though with the wife. We were on the 30 yard line at the Dallas Cowboy game vs the Eagles and I got an elbow in the side that really hurt. Wife commented that the game was being played at the other end of the field and my stare was at the the cheerleaders on the other end. It was a price that was easy to pay. If I lived close to a venue where football was played, I'd tailgate before going to the actual game. That's a HUGE party.
