Week 1 is here in Minneapolis, where this Falcons fan lives.  I've been here for less than a year, and have been itching to get into U.S. Bank Stadium.  I figured the Falcons wouldn't be here until 2020, so I'd have time to save up for a good seat--create an experience for myself, you know?  My assumption, though, is that an away game this season means a home game next season when the Falcons play the NFC North.  2020 would've been enough time to raise the fundage for a lower level visitors' side seat.  No way I can do it in less than five months, though.

Oh well, just venting.  Excited for the draft and the new season!  Enjoy yourselves, folks!  Much love from the Minnesota Chapter of the The Brotherhood.

Well, the thing is that I'm also in the middle of trying to get and furnish a new apartment, so priorities, you know?  When I moved up here, I had to sell everything I own and move into a room that my sister rented me.  I'm in a fully furnished studio now, thankfully.  But you pay a premium for all that furniture, and there are places a little bigger with significantly lower rent.  So, collecting low-priced stuff off of marketplaces and whatnot and looking for a new place.  Life comes first, you know?  I drive Uber for a living as I can't seem to even get an interview up here, let alone a job.

Anyway, it was really just a minor rant.  Have a great evening!

Sorry to hear. Nosebleeds should still be a fun experience. See if you can find some cheap stuff on the day of the game as a last resort. 

I regretted not going the last time the Falcons played in Seattle(where I live) even though the weather was **** and the tickets were hundreds of dollars. 

 

Good luck with the job hunt!

Sell the gold you have stashed and get on with it Dammit. Keep your car plugged in.

I can tell you that when my passengers ask me about the NFL, and I tell them I'm a Falcons fan, they still remember the '98 NFC Championship game.  Thankfully, by now it's more a "remember when" thing than a sore spot.  A lot has happened in their franchise since then.  It's a fun point of connection, though.

I am in Wisconsin and my brother is a Vikes fan. We are already planning the trip. 

I love Wisconsin OL. Well...Then there is that.

Run the ball and defend the run. Love it. GB fan in the 60s.

But UGA. Where they run and pass, and tackle, and intercept passes.

What a great season Falcons are going to have.

We got super lucky. I got seats to that game on the 40 yard line 8 rows up with my son. We are disappointed that they’re not bad playing here’s this year but we may make the trek to Atlanta since my son hasn’t seen my family out there since he was six months old.
