Long trip.
« on: Wed Oct 23, 2019 - 14:40:39 »
My son was in from Seattle this week.    He got us really good tickets for the Dallas Stars.  Problem was, the game was the day after Tornadoes cut a few swaths through Dallas.

So some sections of the DART line were out; we had to get off the train at a suburban station, ride a shuttle bus to another station, and then ride another train to Victory Station.

Then we got to do it in reverse on the way back.    Long trip.



Mrs. Barbarian got cold, so I loaned her my hoodie.  Kind of gets lost in it.

Loooong trip for a hockey game. I drove 20 miles to an Odessa Jackalopes hockey game a few years ago and and that short trip wasn’t worth it. Of course hockey kinda falls in the category of baseball and NASCAR for me. If they could build one giant NASCAR track out at Area 51 in Nevada and have a MLB baseball field in the infield, they could kill two worthless birds at once. I never have understood why Fort Worth built the Texas Motor Speedway on I-35 on the north side of the metropolitan area. I understand from people that live in the area that on race day, traffic for a 20 mile radius of this track is re-routed because of the congestion. Hence my Area 51 idea. Because the NASCAR doofuses or doofi would go to the races no matter where they are located. If you could hold a MLB game at the same time in the same location, WHOA!...... Nirvana!

NHL and MLB aren't that far for me, I could take a commuter train and get dropped off almost at the doors of the Rogers Center for a Blue Jays game and if I want to see the Maple Leafs play I could just grab the subway from where the train drops me and be right at the Air Canada Center. For me the problem isn't the commute, it's the money. $200 for a decent ticket for the Leafs plus $12 beers and $10 hot dogs. Maybe I'm getting cheap but $500 for a hockey game is kinda steep in my books. Blue Jays tickets were much cheaper due to their dismal season, closer to game day they could be had for $30 each but I'll consider myself a fairweather fan that jumps on the bandwagon when they have a winning season. I've been to lots of Bills games, for those it's always drive and park in the Bills Mafia lot.
