Going Pro

College football may be my favorite, but it isn't the only kind of football I've been watching this year. I've been contemplating - yes actually going back and forth over it - getting into pro, and I saw my first pro game this month! It was a day I had planned to lay low, but when someone mentioned "suite", I was suddenly ready to roll.

We didn't stay in town for a Redskins game, but instead drove an hour north to see the Ravens.

I was happy to have a great view of the game, but even happier to be eating free food. I nearly tracked down the servers to ask what kind of honey mustard this was. Best Ever! I went back for sausage and peppers later on.

I had no idea pro fans could be so loud, but the stadium was constantly roaring. And of all the teams they could've been playing, the Kansas City Chiefs were in town, the pro team closest to my hometown {3 hours away}.

I have to be honest, I was secretly cheering for them. And they were playing pretty well.

It was sad not seeing much red in the stadium, though.

I could seriously get used to this suite thing. Free tickets, free food, and a great view. What's not to love? And somehow I've been fortunate enough to have a few suite experiences since my move to D.C. I must be rollin' with the right crowd.

Nope, I think the tickets might just be pure luck. But I do love my crowd. I am blessed.

What a lucky girl! You always get to do such fun things!

I've never been to an NFL game. If I were going to be an NFL fan, I'd be a Ravens fan. Two of my favorite Sooners went to the Ravens. One of them -- Mark Clayton -- is still there.

Suite seats are the best. It's always hard for me to go back to sitting in the regular seats afterward. Haha.

I think you do roll in the right crowds! Hel-lo! And go Chiefs!!! I'm glad you were rooting for them. :)
