Ok guys. It's tuesday night and i just finished packing my bags a day early. Again, a HUGE thanks to everyone that made this possible. What a wonderful group of people to be associated with. The game is coming at a really good time for my wife and I as this past week has been especially hard for the two of us. Not sure why. It just kind of comes and goes like that. The pain and sadness is always there probably always will be there but most of the time I'm able to cope with it a lot better than I have over the last few days. But thats why I say the game is coming at a great time for the both of us. We really needed this and you guys made it possible. But I wanted to post just to let you guys know what my plans are upon arrival.
The flight is scheduled to arrive in Dallas somewhere around noon. So 1st things first, find a cab and haul ass to the very nice hotel you guys have provided me with.
My next stop will be to a store that sales school supplies as i plan to get some construction paper and make a couple of signs and hopefully get on t.v. One sign will be giving props to BTB. The other I'm saving for my baby girl.
My next stop........well, i really don't know. Just relaxing and enjoying ourselves I suppose. I'm sure I'll drink a beer or 15 sometime during the day. But i want to get a good nights sleep for the big day. Last year when I went to the Ravens game (which happened to be my 1st game at texas stadium) my flight came in the same day as the game and i was completely exhausted. So i want to be nice and fresh for game day so i can scream and yell like its a playoff game and not a preseason game.
Gameday.......Not really sure what I'm going to do all day since kickoff isn't until 7pm central time. I'm sure i will show up at the stadium a couple of hours early to take lots of pics and just walk around the place and check it out. I will try to report back to you guys the best i can on the pure awesomeness of the stadium. If there is anything anybody would like me to take a pic of just leave a comment below and I will be sure to get it for you.
There will be a lot of down time between the time we land and the game on the next day. I've only been to Dallas one other time so I need some suggestions for places to eat and place to go and do stuff. We will actually be staying in Arlington near the Stadium so if anybody has any suggestions please let me know.
Once again I just want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart and Tammy's as well. We only have two tickets but I can promise you Olivia will be there on my shoulders screaming "GO COWBOYS!!!!" Just as we used to do together around the house. So again, thank you, thank you, thank you, and thank you.
Now lets hope for a win even if it is preseason.
