My friends and I root for the Arizona Cardinals each year when the football season starts.
- The team plays in Phoenix, a few miles away from our office.
When there are Thursday night games, traffic is an absolute nightmare. There’s no way to leave the city. I think the team has a great chance at the playoffs this year. My friends and I decided to go to Phoenix if the team is featured in any playoff games at home. My friends and I went to a game in Phoenix last year, but it was one of the first games of the year and it was very hot outside. The temperatures were a nightmare and it was an afternoon game. The whole crowd was miserable while we were standing outside waiting to go into the venue. Thankfully there were plenty of cold beers at all of the tailgating parties. By the time my friends and I went to the game, we were all pretty drunk. I remember one more thing about that game. My girlfriend called me a couple of times, because she wanted me to repair her air conditioner. I usually help with problems like that, because she doesn’t know a lot about home maintenance. There was no way I could help with the air conditioner problem when my friends and I were in Phoenix. It would have taken at least 45 minutes for me to drive back home to work on the air conditioner and then I would have missed the entire game. Did she actually expect me to leave the playoff game to help with the air conditioner problem?
