It's a sad day in my house hold
 
I found out I got moved to a new shift tonight:overreact:. The shift I was on had me off for every home game and working every away game. The new schedule has me working quite a few of the games:foottap: :(

Panthers game - Off but away
49ers game - Working days
Saints game - Off but away and will be in Pennsylvania
Vikings game - working days

Dolphins game - Working nights
Jaguars game - Working days
Broncos game - Off but short weekend
Titans game - Off Long weekend
Jets game - working nights
Packers game - Working days
Ravens game - off short weekend
Bye - Off Long weekend ( go figure)
Bills game - Nights
Bears game - Days
Jaguars game - Off short weekend
Lions Game - Working days
Titans game - Working Nights
Patriots game - Off (1 day off in between sets)

Everything in red is what I'm off for. I need to check and see if I have enough vacation to cover some of this. With the new baby this year I spent most of it in Jan. :strangle::wild:

Sucks that you're not going to get to see so many games :(

On the upside, what about DVR?

Or, if you have broadband and have the money, you can subscribe to a Usenet service, then download the games once they've ended.

I know, it's not the same as seeing them live, but it's better than nothing. For Sept and Oct, I'll be relying heavily on Usenet.

Blow it off, that's what I'd do. Hope that helps.

I hear ya. I know Amy said she wanted to go to the 49ers game but said she only wanted the parking pass for that one as she didn't want to bring Mason in. Thats the only input she's given me so far.

Man Andrew that sucks, but at least you have a job.


P.s.

If you sell any I may buy some. My step dad is getting me tickets for my 18th bday, and passing my GED.

I would but the location of my seats would have me on TV and I'd end up with a fired butt.

How much do your tickets cost Andrew?
