As mentioned in my last post, I've now seen 25 of the 32 teams play at home, and have seen football games in 28 stadiums (more or less; counting gets tricky when teams share a venue). Further, I have seven teams left to see (Jaguars, Texans, Cowboys, Eagles, Lions, Bucs, and 49ers), and an additional three stadiums to see (the new turfs of the Bengals, Browns, and Colts), though that number will surely grow as new stadiums keep popping up. I've italicized those teams where I've visited their new stadium too.

That's it for this year. I had ideas of sneaking into enemy territory this coming Sunday if the Eagles were tanking. I figure the fans would be so busy booing Santa that they wouldn't notice me not rooting for them. But, with a very important game for them and the Bears, this is an expensive ticket and will likely be a rowdy game. Some other time, Philly. It's more likely that I may only ever go to an Eagles or Cowboys game when they play each other; this way I can vehemently root against the road team without rooting for the one hosting.

As for next year, depending on the schedule and location (i.e., not if it's their London game), getting to a Jaguars game--vs the Giants--is likely. But, please start praying to the schedule gods now. I don't need to look for September alignments where I can get to a ballgame and football game in the same city, but I would like to knock off multiple football venues in a single weekend. So, let there be a day-night setup like there was on 11/6/2011 above, so I can make it to games in Cincy and Indy on the same day. Or, make it a trifecta and let the Browns or Lions be home that Monday night. Or a superfecta where all four have home games from Thursday night through Monday night. Likewise, having Tampa home the Thursday or Monday night when the Giants play in Jacksonville would be swell. Or, yeah, getting to the two Texas teams in one weekend would work too.

Then again, the Broncos game last week combined with skiing in CO worked out rather nicely. Maybe next December I can get to a Niners game and then head to Tahoe. Hmmm.

Well, that's it for this year. No Giants postseason this winter. The only football thing that I can look forward to is that 2014 schedule release in mid April...

  1. Oh, schedule gods, thank you. You heard me and obliged...
