Going to every game this season
Fri May 10, 2013 5:31 am
  • I know bestfightstory had a thread going earlier this offseason about whether or not anyone was planning on going to ALL of the games this season. After a move to Brooklyn from my native Queens, a tough move no doubt, but one that saves me a bunch when it comes to rent. Plus, Brooklyn's pretty cool too and I can't lie, I've got a sick place now with a nice backyard for cookouts and stuff. Something I didn't have before. On top of that, I got promoted to manager at my job (bar/restaurant), which means more $. Throw in the $ I was saving in order to put a bet on the Hawks this year and you've got endless possibilities. Especially since betting on the Hawks might not even be worth it at this point. I'll still throw a bet down on them but that's only because I KNOW they're going to win it all this year, not for the money.

    What I'm gonna be doing with the rest of that money is living the dream and going to every game on the schedule. No preseason, I'm not balling like that, but I'm going to try and make it out for Training Camp once as well. I've already got my schedule at work figured out (Tues, Wed, Thur, Fri, Sat Brunch, ends at 3:30) and I'll work the week and then travel on Saturday night. My cousin is a manager at a Marriott here in NYC, so I can use her friends and family benefit and only pay 35 bucks for a hotel. I'm not the biggest fan of flying, so in cases where I can take a bus or a train for cheaper, I will. I'm contemplating whether or not I want to fly to Charlotte or take a 15 hour bus ride for $40 round trip instead. Whatever, the logistics don't matter, what does is that I'll be there every step of the way this year.

    A dream of mine has always been to make a movie or produce a movie or something along those lines. For that reason, I'll be bringing a camera around with me and filming some of my travels. I already have some ideas for movie names and how I'd want the end product to look. I love checking out the nightlife of a new city when I travel. Love that feeling of seeing how, as people, we're pretty much the same when it comes to partying. The drink of choice might be different, and the music playing might be as well, but at the end of the day everybody's looking to have a good time. Plus, I'll be trying to talk to as many Hawks fans along the way as possible. That's the part of the trips that I'm looking forward to the most. The other crazy Hawks fans that I'm bound to meet at every single game. And I love meeting new people, especially Hawks fans, so if anyone wants to meet up before a game or if there's a .Net gathering going down you know I'm down.

    Plus, I think a diehard Hawks fan from NYC following his team around because he knows this is the year, only to have the Super Bowl be back home in NY (Jersey) would be a pretty sick sports documentary that Hawks fans would want to see. Screw everyone else. This would be just for us.

    Is anybody else thinking about doing this? I figure I'm 26, I might have time in the future to do this, but right now this is my best chance to do it now. The future is not guaranteed. Anybody else giving it thought?

    Go Hawks!

  • That is pretty awesome NYCoug, I wish you the best of luck on this! I would love to be able to do something like this some day. My wish right now is to be able to catch an away game. Maybe I will get a chance to see you at training camp so I can be part of this epic Superbowl bound video! :thirishdrinkers:

    I know, that's what I was thinking! It would be insane!

    I wouldn't even be looking to make much cash off of it. I'd want a quarter of the proceeds to go to a cancer fund for our boy Paul Allen and a quarter to go towards AIDS research. As long as I got enough $ to make my sister's life amazing (she just turned 4) and to help out my family, I'd consider it a massive success. Can't get ahead of myself though, plus, I don't want to jinx the Hawks haha

  • The the last 2 years I haven't been able to attend my standard road game a year. I was dealing with petty things like buying a home and work. I'm due, for sure.

    Let's pick a game where a bunch of us can travel to,also? Dom, BFS and Matt are usually all-in.

    That's exactly how I feel man. Who knows what life will look like in a year or so, or even further into the future. I can do this now, and I'm going to meet some amazing people along the way and of course, watch the Hawks kick some serious ass! To borrow a page from our very own, nifty, cutting edge and ahead of the game Seattle Seahawks marketing team of years past...

  • Hey, man, I guess I will be seeing you at several points along the way. I already have committed to 4 games and will likely go to more. I'm gonna send you a PM here in a bit.

  • I'm eyeing Houston as the road game I go to .. was thinking Indy would be cool if it happened during NBA season so I could catch a Pacers game too (my NBA team) but it's earlier in the year.

    So .NET roadie in Houston?! Yes? Yes?

    I'll be lucky if I make it to one game this year, haha. Definitely going to VMAC for training camp, though! Went last year and it was fun.

    That's a Roger, Roger.
    Give me a vector Victor.
    I need clearance Clarence.

    Rock on!
    I would like to see if there is any chance to sit amongst the great ones on this site. Any chance of a group package?

  • I like the video idea, pretty cool actually.

    I'll probably never have the expendable income to see all Saints games in a year, but in the future, I do plan on making it out to one or two road games a year. I'd really enjoy coming to the CLink and see first hand, of how you boys match up against our Dome in loudness. :th2thumbs:

    Buy him a ticket to that game and you probably will make the video edit!

  • The focus of this thread should be all about the bold and beautiful undertaking our friend NYCoug is committing to. As such, I don't want to sidetrack it into a conversation about the .NET Houston expedition, but I want to add this:

    As I, along with Seatown81, spearheaded this Houston Trip conversation when schedules were released and i have been in communication with another half dozen of those who have declared their intention to attend, I will continue to act, loosely, as pointman on this venture.

    I am keeping a running 'roster/headcount' of those who have/will pledge to attend. I am exploring ticket and hotel possibilities and will co-ordinate and report back to this Forum, but, when necessary and closer to the season, I will make a 'ROADHAWKS HOUSTON" thread where we can share out plans/information regarding the event.

    In the meantime, if anyone has ideas or questions for me feel free to text or Facebook message me or PM me if neither of those options is available.

  • I am blown away that NYCoug is going to do this. What a fantastic adventure, culminating in a group trip to Tanzania next year after the Hawks win the Super Bowl.

    Not sure if I can make it to Houston but I will definitely see some of you guys along the way this year. Can't be much better [outcome wise at least] than the epic Toronto trip last year!

  • Way cool nyccoug! I would guess though you'd need to fly for games in Seattle no way train/bus would get you there and back in time to see games/other fun stuff. For the games out east you'd probably be able to do that.

    I'll probably never have the expendable income to see all Saints games in a year, but in the future, I do plan on making it out to one or two road games a year. I'd really enjoy coming to the CLink and see first hand, of how you boys match up against our Dome in loudness. :th2thumbs:

    Mrs. Drummer and myself made it to the home opener for you folks in `04. Seattle won 21-7.
    Granted, you didn't have the team then that you have now but really nothing compares to The Clink.

    As I, along with Seatown81, spearheaded this Houston Trip conversation when schedules were released and i have been in communication with another half dozen of those who have declared their intention to attend, I will continue to act, loosely, as pointman on this venture.

    I am keeping a running 'roster/headcount' of those who have/will pledge to attend. I am exploring ticket and hotel possibilities and will co-ordinate and report back to this Forum, but, when necessary and closer to the season, I will make a 'ROADHAWKS HOUSTON" thread where we can share out plans/information regarding the event.

    In the meantime, if anyone has ideas or questions for me feel free to text or Facebook message me or PM me if neither of those options is available.


    BFS is correct. Let's forgo the temptation to hijack this thread as the OP has shared his something special plan with us and that is what this thread is about.

  • Hijack away you sick bastards! Houston is going to be AMAZING! That roster, and no, not the Seahawks 53 man, should be enough to have Houston's Sheriff and all of it's local policemen on notice. You could probably make an epic movie based on trip alone! That's one of the games on the schedule I can't wait to see!

    Really though, I just want to thank everyone for reaching out and for the support. Jon, Leif, Scott, Ludwig, Greg and everyone else (it's a long list, which just shows you why this place is seriously one of the greatest places on earth) you're all amazing people. Sick, I mean, we are Seahawks fans after all. You've got to be sick to have stuck with this team through some awful decades. But amazing nonetheless. I can't wait to meet everyone along the way and put some faces/real life stories to the (screen) names.

    I was working all weekend and didn't get a chance to check out the site (or pay my phone bill on time, so I couldn't check the internet on my phone either haha) and missed this thread. Was really nice to see just now after a long weekend. And not in the good kind haha, actually, sorta. But thank you to all of you.

    Wenhawk wrote:Do it now cause once you have a family it will be much harder. SOunds awesome, Have a great time and i'd watch the movie even if we don't win it all.


    That's why I've got to do it now haha, I've got a girlfriend of almost 2 years who I'm living with, a 4 year old sister with a mom who isn't in the greatest of health, and some money that I worked hard for, saved up, and couldn't think of a better way of spending it, all while still being able to have a great schedule at work that'll allow me to do it.

    Let's be real here. With a family of my own this probably won't be possible. If I had a kid or if something happened to my mom and I had to take care of my sister, priorities would have to take over. And rightfully so. Having said that... IT'S NOW TIME! WOOO!!!

    TwilightError wrote:That is a great idea and if you can do it now, never postpone opportunities! Carlow East in NYC is a great place to watch games too, but nothing beats Live experience! (I'm still in the process of organizing my first one.. Kids, job, half the world in distance etc.. One day..)


    Carlow East is the greatest. That's the only thing about this whole idea that upsets me and tears me up is that I won't be able to go to Carlow during Gameday. Luckily, I can just go there any other day of the week, after work or on my day off on Monday and hang with some of the same people and probably talk about the game. That place is absolutely blowing up over the last few years and I'm expecting that this year will be the craziest year at Carlow yet. I love that place. It's my little slice of heaven on earth. I watched the Seahawks mangle the 49ers with JonRud there. What a night. Carlow was rockin and the place turned into a full-on party after the blocked field goal TD. I've never seen so many wasted (myself included) Hawks fans in one place in my life. It was glorious. The Redskins playoff game too. Somebody's gonna have to videotape Carlow every week for me while I'm gone. The atmosphere is amazing and everyone there is pretty cool. Every place has it's regulars, but how many places in NYC can say that most of their regulars are Seahawks fans?

    That would be awesome. It could be like a glimpse into the future for you. You'd look back and watch it and think that I was Reese from Terminator. Sent from the future to show you what yours will look like. The beautiful thing about it though, is that in 20 years you could exactly what I'm going to do but it will be completely different. A different schedule would mean different road trips and totally new experiences.

    As for flying, yeah, I hate it but I'm going to have to do it. I'm over it now. All of the trips to Seattle are going to be long flights, but I'm ready for it. I've started to get more and more used to flying and hopefully after all these trips I'll be completely fine with it. I just can't wait for this season to start already! (could this be the first, "well, you're gonna have to" of the off-season?! It'd be the highest honor)

  • This is awesome. With the Hawks games, the .NETTERS, the video... epic! Definitely record as much as possible (as long as it doesn't interfere with the actual experience, of course). And if you have some narrative ideas, that's great, but foremost is to capture your experiences and sort it all out later. A great example of this concept is the excellent documentary about the world's foremost street artists, called "Exit Through The Gift Shop," in which the filmer is also a participant in the action.

    I did a cross-country road trip when I was 25 and now, looking back 14 years on, it's a major highlight of my life. I just wish I had documented it better!

    Thanks for the great advice. I'm going to check out Exit Through the Gift Shop. Haven't gotten around to seeing it yet but I'll have to now because of your suggestion. It seems necessary. I haven't really come up with any narrative ideas outside of the, dude from NYC follows his team for a whole season, knowing they will win, and they do, in his backyard after traveling all over the country. That would be sick. Other than that though, I really just want to do what you said. Just capture my experiences and sort em out. I want the places and 12's, and fans of others teams too, to be just as important as me and going to watch the Hawks. Well, maybe not as important as the Hawks. I just want it to be real (no bs like you're starting to see in other documentaries) and real good.

    Weekly videos are probably a must at this point too. I'm gonna have to have my own training camp for my camera skills. Gotta be ready for the season!

    Would not be a bad idea to contact the Seahawks once you have your itinerary straight.. they may be able to help you secure decent tickets, especially if you were able to document your trip either using video or a journal.. .com would love to post something like that on their site.. may even turn itself into sideline passes or some other perks from the team.. just a thought..

    There are people at HQ that would love to hear about this experience..

  • The attractive and vivacious Mrs. Drummer and I will also be at the Az game. We have a second home in Arizona about 6 miles from the UofP stadium. I plan to take a weeks vacation that week and hang in the sun. If NYCoug's expenses for this tour are climbing too high, I'll put you up for the night and get you transpo to/from the event and drop your butt at the airport if need be.
    Rock on!
    Go Seahawks.
