A few of us(myself, my wife, bestfightstory, and mystermatt) are going to Toronto to see the game against the Bills. We bought 5 tickets and have an extra one available if someone here feels inclined to go. We are arriving Friday the 14th and fly out Monday the 17th.

Anyhow, these trips are always fun so if someone wants to swing it pm me for details. We try and do one of these each year but took last year off for whatever reason. It's on again for this year and as usual it will be something to remember. If you live in Toronto or in the immediate area even easier.

I thought about doing this trip and then got ticked when I heard it was in Toronto. Figured it would be too expensive, international problems, etc. About a week ago I decided to check out ticket prices on stubhub and found they were actually reasonable. Wife was OK with me going, especially since game is on my birthday. Had the money available. Saw it was 4 pm game. Realized I would get home around 3am if I drove back right after the game. Made a reservation for a hotel to stay in for that night.

...And then my boss denied my time off request (even though I've accumulated my max vacation time) because there's a software release that day.

Well, next year, I'm going to clean out my frequent flyer miles and go back to Seattle for a game. It HAS to be better than the last one I went to in 2002...

That sucks. We go through that too. We have quarterly releases and can't take time off. Then we have immediate fixes that come up almost weekly and have to work overnight shifts all the time as well as our normal day shifts. I feel your pain. I think I'm about getting burned out.

Man I really wish I could go. It would be a blast with such a Motley Crew.

My Son's coming into town from NJ and this time of year is nuts in our household. Otherwise, I would be all over this.

Someone take him up on the offer! You won't regret it.

Yep, that was me! I hope to see you again one day. I love meeting the big contributors to the board and the "famous fans" like Kiltman, Cannonball, PaintedHawk, etc.

I got mine in about 3 weeks paying for expedited service and express mail.

But unless you're flying, you do not need a passport per se. Don't get me wrong, you need something, but not necessarily a passport. Some states (like New York) have "enhanced" drivers licenses that suffice, and you can get a border card too (Same ideas as a passport, but cheaper, and only good for land crossings into Canada/Mexico.

BTW, if anyone is seriously thinking of going, it's generally a lot cheaper to fly into Buffalo and then drive about 2 1/2 hours into Toronto. A lot of Canadians work that in reverse when flying to say, Florida.

FYI - Psy is doing that Gangham style thing at halftime of the Hawks/Bills game. I had no idea what this was but now my wife is actually excited to go to the game!

Todd is like the Seahawks. Every year he talks a good game but every year he fails to show up on the road

Well Todd if you weren't so cheap you would figure out a way to let Shandon go. Its much closer for him. Plus it would give him a chance to meet REAL Seahawks fans.

The problem with this is you have to go to Toronto, and also deal with Pearson airport.

Okay.....

Does anyone know if they tailgate up there? We have to start planning on a few things. Let's make sure that any of you going to the games exchange information with myself, or mystermatt.

If one of you is local and driving to the game maybe we can tailgate if they allow it. We could all chip in for the parking, get some beer and what not.

Hey come on, Toronto is a great city, and our Airport is one of the nicest, typical Calgary person jealous of the only Canadian city that matters.

I have never had a problem, sometimes customs is a long line but that would be it.

It really sucks but we are not allowed to drink in the parking lot for tailgate parties, it sucks. I know Budweiser is having a big party before the game but I am sure the beer and food will not be cheep. Think the best bet is to go to a local pub and reserve some space if we could get a number of people going.

Ok. Well your the resident expert. Let us know if there is a close place near Rodgers Dome where we can meet up few hours prior to the game. Is that huge sports bar close?

Yeah, Dom. ZERO tailgating in Toronto. According to friends of mine who live there, not only is there no tailgating, if you drink outside, you'll be arrested. Not given a warning. Arrested. Apparently there is some super lame Budlight "tailgating" zone next to the stadium where you can buy $8 Bud Lights. But you want nothing to do with that. There are a couple bars near the stadium. I can ask and let you know where the best to pre-game is.

Oh, and btw. I'm going to be in town for this one. ;)
