Cardinals Beat Detroit!!!
Ahh football. I won tickets to a Cardinal's game through my work United Way Fundraiser. They were great seats, in the upper deck, but on the 50 yard line. There really isn't a bad seat in the University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cardinal defense was on fire, and the Cardinal's pulled off a 31-21 victory. It was the first game for both my friend Becky and I. We enjoyed getting to explore the stadium, both before and after the game. I got a new Cardinal's hat; I chose a funny hat, rather than a ballcap, which was nice when the Air Conditioning kicked on (it is November, I know).
The Westgate shopping center was also very nice. We arrived at the game a few hours early, and found seats in the bar at Gordon Biersch (the Yard House and Fox Sports Grill had waits over 2 hours) and were able to watch the some of the morning games. It was an odd football morning, with a ton of safeties and low scoring games. Pittsburgh pulled out an improbable victory, and Minnesota lost Adrian Peterson to a torn lateral collateral ligament. My Bears also won; defeating the Raiders at Oakland!!!
