Dunno, never been there. Used to go to the silver dome with dad back in the 80's and watch the blue and silver ....Watching Billy Simms (the other #20) run in td's right in front of us. But have never been to the new Ford Field.
A little story:
Last X-mas eve, at moms house. We were watching the lions play the SD Bolts. Lions win and their in the playoffs. Great game!
Mom says right after Avril grabs the pick 6, "Wouldnt it be great to be there now?" I say, "yeah, it would be great."
This spring, after redoing the duct work ( actually making it RIGHT) in her house and installing a new central air system, we are sitting at the local watering hole, i am rinsing the dust out of my throat with frosty beers. I say "wouldnt it be great to go see the lions play on turkey day?" She says, "yeah, that would be great."
Flash forward to July 10 (the 14th anniversary of us planting my dad) I get a phone call @ 10:15 a.m. Its mom. We talk about how bummed we are, how miss the old man, etc. etc. Then she says, "Guess what i did?" I say half heartedly, (thinking to myself, ohhh lord, what did you do NOW woman) "what did you do?" She says, "I decided we're doing thanksgiving as a family this year." I say, "OK" (thinking to myself "good lord, we NEVER get together as a family on T-day...thats a X-mas thing) She says, "I have also decided we're having hotdogs and beer for our dinner." I say, "OK" (thinking Hotdogs and beer?! GOOD LORD!) Then she says, "Did i mention we're having thanksgiving AT FORD FIELD
Tickets went on sale @ 10 a.m. July 10...the T-day game and the game the week before vs the Pack sold out in less than 10 minutes! Mom snagged 9 tix for us!!
I am thinking there was someone looking over this crazy idea and making sure we got 'em. Dad had season tickets back in the day, but we NEVER went to a thanksgiving day game because he and I were in the UP deer hunting!!
I am STOKED for turkey day this year!!!
