A lot of people have a bucket list, a list of things they’d like to do before the “kick the bucket”. Mine has only really consisted of going to Europe and going on the field on gameday at a Buffalo Bills home game. The latter was accomplished last year and it was AWESOME.
As I was watching the Super Bowl yesterday with the hubby and a bunch of friends, I came up with my new bucket list item to add. It’s going to be something that we have to work at through the years, and will cost some money, but I think will be worth it.
In the 2015 football season the Bills are coming to play the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles, so I was chatting with my friends who are fans of those teams about getting tickets to the games. I’ve gone to watch the Bills play at the Redskins stadium before, but this will be my first trip into Philadelphia for a game. Aside from reviewing the action items I need to do to make sure I don’t get beat up by Eagles fans, I also had a light bulb moment. Wouldn’t it be awesome to go see the Bills play at each of the NFL teams locations???
The idea would be that once a year we would pick a Bills away game to travel to. Currently there are 32 NFL teams, minus the Bills (the team we’re following) and the Redskins and Ravens because we’ve been to games in their stadiums, we would have 29 locations to accomplish.
My husband realized that in our final year of doing this he will be 70. Ouch. Somehow that seems incredibly old and incredibly far away. Maybe some years we can knock off 2 games to help his chances of still being mobile (and alive). Either way, I think this sounds like a fantastic idea and I’m pumped the husband was willing to buy in. And because the NFL is looking to expand to the UK, I may even get to get my trip to Europe and see another Bills away game.
