Im having a slight dilemna. Any advice is appreciated.
I have two extra tix for this sundays game. Upper 300's, the face value is 75$ but on Stub Hub they're going for 209$ a piece....I have some Falcons fans that told me they would give me 180$ for each ticket.
Now, normally I let my wife bring one of her friends. But she doesn't have any hardcore Falcons female fans. I adamantly told her she is not bringing the sisterin law, because thats who we took to the Green Bay loss, and she screwed up one of my sundays this season where I got two extra tix to bring the nephews and the backed out at the last minute (saints game!)..
I also have a 'special' 7 year old boy. Im vaccilating on letting him come to the NFCCG. One reason is he doesn't really 'get' football yet, and I wouldnt be sitting next to him anyways as these other two tickets are in a different section. One one hand, sharing this experience with a win would be something he would remember for the rest of his life. But conversely, the only thing that would hurt more then a loss is seeing him get his hopes crushed. He is a sensitive kid, and I am really overprotective.
But also: that 360$ could go along way to paying for a room In New Olrleans on Feb 3rd. I mean a decent hotel on Canal Street is gonna be about 290$. If I dont get a SB ticket, that extra 60$ can buy alot of Bourbon and Beer...
Am I wrong to think maybe I should wait a couple years and bring him back in the playoffs maybe when he' like 9 or 10 years old? Or is this a once in a lifetime thing that I should just suck it up and let him come and just deal with whatever happens?
The other thing is a little selfish on my part. I dont want to have to worry about him and momma over in section 328 surrounded by drunken hooligans.I just want to enjoy the game. Not have to worry about swearing or too many beers, etc...My wife said a friend of hers has an extra ticket she could buy, so she could go too, although I may warn Pudge this friend of hers a an ugly old troll.And she tries to hook this one up with any man possible. I told her to leave you alone, but if you really need to plant one on somebody after the game, Tasha wouldn't object
what do you guys think?
