On Thursday Y and I are heading to the Twin Cities to watch the Vikings vs. Buccaneers football game. We're staying downtown Minneapolis at the Ramada. I'm so excited!!!
My mother-in-law e-mailed me last week that she had 2 tickets she had purchased at a United Way auction and they weren't able to use them. Did we want to go? I talked to Y and even though the timing isn't great because of our money situation, we want to go. We're huge football fans but we've never been to a football game together.
My mother-in-law also offered to let me take over their hotel reservation for $199 per night. I know its a nice hotel because I've stayed there and it would be a perfect location, but no. Way too expensive for us. I Pricelined it and got a room at the Ramada for $88 including tax.
I'm so excited and looking forward to this time with Y (Lil Punk is staying back with a friend of mine.) Yay for a mini vacay :)
PS Why isn't football an Olympic sport? I have no idea why the rest of the world would prefer soccer over football--I know this may sound ignorant but I really don't get it. Football combines athleticism, skill, brains, brawn, some fights, throwing, catching and gameplay. Isn't that the perfect game?
