First Football Game for the boys

The boys have made a ton of new friends in the last (almost two!) years that we've been here, and many are football fanatics who attend lots of games. Living here is more like living in the Boston area, where professional sports are abundant, and being a fan is a major part of the local culture. Greg and I also love to attend sporting events, but have always hesitated due to the price of tickets. Here in the metro NYC area, even the "cheap seats" can run a family $400 or more.  When we saw that the Patriots were playing the Giants in pre-season, we began researching seats because we figured they would be less expensive. We used SeatGeek (site a lot like StubHub) and were able to score seats for less than half the price of normal seats on the secondary market (yes!) We bought the seats, and a parking pass (also less than going rate).
When game day arrived, we packed up sandwiches and drinks, and had a little tailgate fun in the parking lot. That was a lot of fun, and the kids were happy to see there were quite a few Patriots fans at Met Life Stadium!

What really impressed me was how much of the game Christopher watched and understood. It was so fun to see him get into the game and watch all of the plays! Joey had a blast too. I think they really loved dancing in between plays and during the TV breaks. They so badly wanted to get on the jumbotron! We are hoping to catch a Rangers game in the near future. Chris has already been eyeing the schedule, and I will be keeping my eye on SeatGeek for reduced price tix!
