Thread derail: we have a block of 5 seats in the middle of the row. I love it because nobody ever crawls over us during the game, people on the left head left, people on the right head right. I sat on the end of a row for a game in Kyle and hated it. People were constantly asking to get by. Same people too. We never leave our seats except for halftime. I just don't get this constant need to wander the stadium.
We have aisle seats. I'm ready to bring in a wrench and remove the seat because I can never sit down anyway. We are row Q in the 600's so it is over 50 stairs down then back up every time they leave so it's not just bounce in and out easily.
The playoff game was typical. Texans had the ball first. Ran two plays, it's third down, "excuse me, excuse me". The game is only two plays old and these people are leaving their seats already! WTF did they come for? Of course it continues through the entire game. Some people are in and out five times. All I can think is this is the first time they have ever been anywhere that sells beer and they are so excited they have to buy two more. For some reason they can't buy from the beer vendor who is within 10 feet of me 90% of the game. I realize that banging back 10 beers at $8 a pop means they need to pee once or twice, but I go to see a play or a concert and all the 80 year olds with bladders the size of a walnut are able to hold it until intermission. I guess I should have searched for the rant smilie...
