I drove all that way to see that???

I was excited as I woke up on Sunday morning because it was a gameday, and better yet it was a day in which I had tickets to see the Packers at Lambeau Field. Anytime you're able to see the Packers play at Lambeau Field is a special day, and one to be cherished.
The game was a noon start and I was going to meet up with Elle, who I met here on TravBuddy, at 10:30 so we could head over to the stadium and enjoy our tickets, which happened to be in a private suite. I got the tickets for free from my parents, who were given them through their retail business. The only thing better than seeing the Packers at Lambeau is seeing the Packers at Lambeau for free.
After meeting up with Elle we arrived at our suite to be greeted with an offer of buffalo wings, hamburgers, bratwursts, and various beverages, both adult beverages and non-adult beverages.
The game was ugly. Really ugly. Both teams must've missed the memo saying that the game started at noon, because I'm still waiting for them to show up. The mighty Packers of Green Bay fell to the Bengals. The ending turned out to be really exciting, with the Packers making a last-gasp effort to tie the game as time ran out on them leaving the suddenly excited Packers faithful a bit stunned. What a bummer. Seeing my team lose (and it is my team as I'm a stockholder) is much easier to handle if you at least see a good, competitive game.
The drive home was long. I got stuck in gameday traffic from Green Bay to Oshkosh and then a downpouring of rain as I rolled back into Madison about 3 hours after I left Green Bay. So traffic only really added 30 minutes to my drive. Next time I'll take Elle's advice and take a minor highway instead of the one I'm familiar with.
Pictures will be forthcoming, but I have to get them off of my camera still.
