Yesterday was a GLORIOUS day! You should know by now that He Said She Said FOOTBALL are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to our NFL teams. It was only fitting that we be apart of the excitement to see our favorite teams live and in living color. It turned out to be a great day for football, but it was also great for tailgating, and seeing football enthusiasts like ourselves, enjoy a mild sunny day watching their favorite teams battle it out. Fans from everywhere were there to take in this game. We even met a mother and daughter who traveled from Virginia Beach . It was a graduation gift for the daughter, her wish was to see her favorite team (the Cowboys) play in person. We also had the good fortune to witness this rivalry in the most regal way possible: in the SKYBOX at FedEx Field. There is no other way to watch a professional football game. Now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t watch a game any other way. The accommodations were awesome: all you can eat buffet, in-seat wait service, plush leather seats with climate control. And the view was amazing!! It was the best football watching experience that I ever had.
I believe I had the same hopes as most Redskins fans yesterday: “Please don’t let us get blown out at FedEx Field to these BUM Cowgirls!” With that goal in mind, and excellent seats as an incentive, I suited up in my Burgundy and Gold best and trekked up to FedEx Field. Of course it would have been awesome to be on the winning side of a 27-24 victory in overtime. Anytime a fan pays money for a sporting event, they are expecting to be entertained. It doesn’t get much more entertaining than a divisional showdown that goes into OT. FedEx Field holds 91,000 fans. Yesterday I would say the crowd was 50/50 (way too many Dallas fans!). What that meant was 45,500 people were yelling on every play-regardless of what happened. It was THE MOST FUN I’ve ever had at a football game! Trust–I’ve been to many (including this rivalry game in DC and in TX). This was the best one so far. Continue reading
