I attended an NFL game.
It was learned that the company I work for has a suite at Soldier Field in Chicago. As a reward for our department kicking ass and taking names, we were given access to the suite for the Bears Vs. Minnesota game. My boss “requested” our attendance (Several of us had zero interest in going) and had it been outside tickets, I would have refused. But with the prospect of copious amounts of free drink and food and being an environmentally controlled suite, I made my appearance.
I will not try to justify my attendance by saying I did not spend any money that the NFL would get and for me, the game was just background noise (much like wherever I am on Thanksgiving).
Please, do not think less of me.
