Felt Cute and Bought a Super Bowl Ticket Less than 24 Hours Before the Game

by | Oct 25, 2023 | A-Ha Moments, All, Travel

For way more years than I like to admit, I lived for the men in my life. I made sacrifices instead of compromises and gave up paying attention to my needs. I forfeited what I wanted on a regular basis, and as a result, I missed out on a lot of opportunities and experiences. The day I chose to take back my independence, is the same day that I decided to start living for me, and only me. For the last two years I have made good on that promise to myself, probably to the extreme at times. If you’ve known me longer than five minutes, you probably know that I love the Philadelphia Eagles in a weird amount. Early in their season when they came out looking like a Super Bowl contending team, I publicly made a bold statement and said, “If they go to the Super Bowl, I’m going too”. Fast forward to Saturday morning before the Super Bowl, I had no plane ticket, no hotel, and no Super Bowl ticket. The cost to attend a Super Bowl is far from inexpensive, I have a lot going on at work, I didn’t have anyone to go with…the list of reasons I came up with not to go was lengthy. However, I could not fully talk myself out of it.

The Eagles have only been to the Super Bowl two times in my lifetime, who knows how many more opportunities I will have to see them play in a Super Bowl, and this is a bucket list opportunity I just couldn’t pass up.  So, at 7pm the Saturday night before the big game, I booked a 5am flight, a hotel that was somewhat comparable to that of the hotels you see in horror movies, and I bought an outrageously expensive ticket right in the end zone. I mean if you’re going to go big, no reason in taking the cheap route. It was quite the journey to get to the stadium, but when I arrived it was like nothing I had ever seen before, and the moment I sat down in my seat was an emotional one for me, I couldn’t believe I was there. Most people go their entire lives never getting to go to an NFL game, none the less a Super Bowl that their team is playing in. And even though we didn’t get the win, it was an epic game and one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I am so happy that I took the leap and put my ass on a plane, and I would do it again. You only live once and you can’t take your money with you when you’re dead, so why not…. this is an experience that I will remember forever, and I have no regrets. Now on to the next adventure on the bucket list. Might have to add see Eagles win the Super Bowl to the list though.

Fly Eagles Fly!

XOXO,
