I forgot about the CFL's Baltimore Stallions (would've been Colts except for a lawsuit and they almost just spelled the name "Kolts", which would've been retarded.)

Not trying to thread hijack but mentioning the Stallions brings back some memories for me. They played at the old (now demolished) Memorial Stadium which was literally across the street from my old house. I'd sit on my porch and BBQ and "tailgate" until game time and then walk across the street and pick up a ticket. Sometimes, I'd just hangout until half-time then walk over and see the second half free. It was a blast. (FYI - Alvin Walton was their safety and still wore that big-ass neck brace).

If you look at the picture above you see some white houses in centerfield. Mine was on the same street pretty much behind the big Toyota sign.

Re: My FedEx Experience - What a great day!

This is one of my favorite threads on this site these days. Amidst all the "Redskins suck, my world is over" threads it's refreshing to read about a fan who has travelled so many miles to experience his favorite team and an entire day of football live and in person.

Granted, I'm sure he would have preferred a Redskins victory but often times it's just about the total experience of being at a game. This thread makes the bad guy smile

Thanks TAFKAS.... I must admit that the threads of how we are doing bad have become the norm, I am happy I can still make people smile with this and realize it was just a game. I wanted a Redskins victory in the worse way (more so because my bro and I had a bet that the loser had to wear the winners jersey on the first day of our annual week long golf trip. It will be the first time I have to wear a Falcons jersey, while my brother has twice worn a Redskins jersey, but that is okay) I still have a huge smile on my face when I tell people about my trip, it was a long weekend as you can tell by the bag under my eyes, lol, but it was worth the lack of sleep to be able to sing "HAIL TO THE REDSKINS" with 90,000 other faithful fans, while watching my brother hang his head in shame.

At the end of the day it about the experience of being there and feeling like I was part of the atmosphere and to see it live was amazing.

I get upset just like the rest of you when we lose, in fact I broke my mothers couch a few years back when the Cowboys beat us in the last seconds, so I am a huge die hard fan, but we have to remember that only one team gets to claim to be world champs for a year, and even though this will not be our year, we can always look forward to next year. I think JC will bring home our 4th Super Bowl very shortly.

Thanks for all the great responses everyone, and I was not drunk but then again I am Canadian and our beer is a tad stronger then yours so it would have taken me a lot... lol. We did have two beers before every quarter and a few before the game as well.
