The Packers won! And we had a good time. We did the bus thing again, so we got there in plenty of time, and we were able to scope the place out. Our seats were in the nosebleed section, but right on the 50-yard line, so we could see everything!
My only complaint is with Qwest Field. I just don't get how anyone can disregard a whole section of the population, no matter how unpopular. We went down right at the end of half time to go outside to blow a cloud. But, per NFL regulations, no re-entry allowed after kick-off, so if we went out of the gates, they would not let us back in. OK, fine - so where is the smoking section? You guessed it - there wasn't one! How flippin' rude is that?! We were there from 12:30 until 4:30 - that's four hours. They have this big, ole plot of land - you can't tell me they cannot designate a corner outside, away from everything for us poor folk that don't heed the surgeon general's warnings. But, no - they told us at the gate that it's the Health Dept that dictates that there be no smoking section. So, between the NFL and the Health Dept, we're screwed.
Not very nice at all.
