Would you believe me if I told you I was 23 years old and had yet to attend a football game? I know, it’s crazy. But given my lovely relationship with a sports fanatic, the day had finally come.🏈
I understand that tailgating is important, but I learned that leaving your house by 6am is also important. I’m not entirely sure if that’s common sense, but for those who aren’t experienced about football games like myself, please take note. I guess this would be common sense; less time in line means more time relaxing in the sun and grilling with the football fans around you.
*We parked in parking lot B off of Lake Shore Dr. South. You could take a shuttle to the game if you’d like, or you can save your money and enjoy the 15 to 20 minute walk to the stadium, like we did.
Bears vs Steelers @ Soldier Field
Football games are so much more different than baseball games. Everybody is louder, the fans are crazier, and the players remind of me bulls the way they run full speed tackling each other.
Surprisingly enough, my sister and brother-in-law had flown in a few days before from Pittsburgh to attend the same game. They’re diehard Steelers fans, obviously, and I learned that it’s rare to see the two teams actually play each other. And with that being said, I was impressed by just how many Steelers fans were there.
Our seats were amazing! I truly believe that I’m one of the luckiest people ever; my first year being a baseball fan I get to watch the Cubs win the World Series, I get to attend games constantly, and I got to sit right behind the touchdown zone for my first football game. I’m not bragging or anything, just really blessed.😊
Although I didn’t get to watch my first pick team win, there really wasn’t a loss for me. It was a beautiful sunny day (91 degrees, may I add), I got to see two of my favorite teams play, and we had some amazing seats. It really was the greatest Sunday I’ve had in a long time.
