withing Posted October 4, 2009 Share Posted October 4, 2009 So, I2D2 asked me to go to a football game yesterday, and I said sure 'cause I'm trying to get over my thing with crowds. We also went to a "tailgate" party with the ESL center - which hardly anyone showed up to and that wasn't too bad 'cause the few people who *did* show up were okay, plus it was far away from the rest of the crowds. Anyway, after the tailgate party broke up - two hours early - we attempted to wander around the crowd, but I immediately started getting a migraine because people were shouting, shoving and ringing their damned cow bells!!! So we went to the Union and sat down away from the crowds until it was time to go to the game. Sitting in the stands was horrible! We ended up in a section that was close to the field, and we must have ended up in the frat section or something because we were surrounded by drunk kids and girls who were dressed to the nines... God help me, why would anyone wear a dress and high heels to a football game??? I couldn't see anything of the game because every time I got a good view, someone stood in front of me (no one sat down but me the entire time we were there). There *were* a couple of kids who tried to stay out of my way, I'll give them that. One of their friends was chewing tobacco and kept spitting on the ground - gross. And of course, everyone kept ringing their damned cow bells!!! But I can handle all of that... What I could not deal with is the fact that every time we made a score, some asshole above us threw beer all over the stands. Even though we only made three touchdowns and two field goals, I was soaked with beer by the time we left at half-time. That may not have been as bad if it weren't a night game and I detest the smell of beer. We left at halftime 'cause both of us were sick of the idiots that surrounded us, and really, football gets boring after a while if there's nothing else to occupy you through the downtimes. I2D2 was great through it all. He didn't come to the tailgating 'cause he had to work, but he didn't complain when we had to get away from the crowds afterwards, and I tried not to bitch about the beer *too* much. Still, I think if we ever go to another game, I'm sitting all the way at the top, with my back against the wall and as far away from anyone as I can get.
