A couple of weeks ago, a guy in my spinning class stated that while he was a season-ticket owner, he'd gone to his last Titans home game of the year, since they were doing so poorly. I asked him if he was going to let his tickets go unused and he said probably, to which I said, I'd be happy to use them if he wasn't going to go. He said he'd get back to me and I've not heard from him.
You know, I just don't understand why people pay a ton of cash for PSLs and then a ton more for season tickets and then not go to the games. Come on, people! I know we're not doing too well this year and last year was nothing to write home about...but at least give the tickets to someone who might go. I mean, it's embarassing to hear that the game is sold out and then see tumbleweeds rolling through the stands when the game is on TV.
That said, a guy in the locker room was trying to make a deal for cheap Titans tickets yesterday. Sunday is the last home game of the year and we play the Seattle Seahawks. I'd love nothing more than to see the Titans pull a massive upset for the home finale of the year, but with our porous run defense and the Seahawks having Sean Alexander I'm not holding my breath. That and the fact that our offense self-destructs inside our own 20.
And I was thinking--you know, if I could find cheap tickets, it might be worth going...
That is, until I checked the TV listings. Hallelujah, the Falcons play a night game next week and it looks like
FOX 17 has done what any smart station should do and is showing the greatest rivallry in all of professional sports. The Dallas Cowboys come to the home of my beloved Washington Redskins for a potentially huge NFC East showdown. How can you not get excited about this game, especially the way the last one on Monday night ended with the Skins pulling off a miracle finish to defeat the Boys?!?
And so, I suddenly found myself not caring as much. Cause if I went to see the Titans play, I'd miss much of the Washington/Dallas game. And you know, I can't do that....
