New this season – full hat-off security patdown before entering the gates. Biggest line ever. We missed the flyover – we heard the cheer from inside right as the jets blasted over the stadium wall above us.
On the plus: we also missed Jessica Simpson sing the America the Beautiful. Call it a draw.
In September 2005 a gallon of gas is three bucks and there are concession cashiers reserved exclusively for Redskins-brand Visa cardholders. But a plastic bottle of lite beer is still under ten bucks, holding steady at seven for the last few seasons. In 2005 we call this a break.
The sun was tough on our vendor. We didn’t see him – or QB Patrick Ramsey for that matter – again after the first quarter.
Final Score: Washington 9, Chicago 7
Yeah, it’s doubly devastating down here.
