Not too far. I live and Philadelphia and drive the two hours to Baltimore to see the Bengals plays the Ravens every year. Hopefull i will get out to Cincy one day, but I would estimate that would be a 12-15 hour drive.

Downtown for me! The vikes beat Miami baby! That was like 2 years ago..I don't go to many football games! I find the twins games are easier to go to.
Keep it lit.

Good luck trying to beat this one....I flew from Orlando to Seattle to go watch the Dolphins play the Seahawks last year. Of all the year's for the Fins to finally totally suck it had to be this one. My good buddy from college lives in Seattle so we had a great time.

Same for me, although I've also gone to East Lansing to see the boys in maize and blue take out the Spartans at their home field ;-D

I went to Seattle for a 'Hawks game... a whole four-hour drive! Crazy...

If baseball counts, I went to New York to boo the Yankees on their home field (same goes for the Mets at Shea). Well, that wasn't the purpose of the trip (as if I'd go out of my way to watch the Yankees!)... but I did do that while I was in town.

The Holiday Bowl no doubt. Not like Michigan was in Pasadena much when you lived there. :-b

Not that far, but the wife and I have for the past 6 years driven 3 hours every home weekend to the 49ers games.


Sadly no..It was the Silicon Valley Bowl a few years back when my Spartans played and beat Fresno State. It was a blast man..And yeah, no bashing for the Silicon Valley Bowl. My wife and I went out there and it was an amazing time. The MSU hoops team was in a tourney out there too so we saw them play too, a Golden State game, a ton of great food and booze, and it was a week of fun.

Hmmmm......


I suppose it would be when I drove to Miami to see FSU play Oklahoma in the National Championship game a few years back.... About an 8 hour trip.....

The furthest I've driven to see a pro game was to New Orleans, which is about 4 hours away.....

Went to San Diego for the Tampa/Oak Superbowl. Had a great time and it was cheap! My sister teaches Art at San Diego State so I had a free place to crash and got an airline ticket for $99!
Go Cowboys!
