Earlier today, I was offered two tickets to the game this weekend at face value. The issue is that the tickets were coming through my wife's job here in Columbus, and it was made clear that any partisanship not in favor of Ohio would not be welcomed. She works for the Governor, and essentially, anyone in the VIP seats occupied by state employees is a reflection on the office. Somewhat silly, sure, but also I can see why they may feel that way. If it was Minnesota or something, I doubt it would be an issue.
Anyhow, I declined. I figured I've been to the game two times before, and seeing it again wasn't worth having to bite my lip for 3 hours Saturday.
Would anyone here have accepted knowing that they'd have to sit in hostile territory and bite their tongue for the whole game? I just want to feel better about this knowing I'm not the only one who would have seen it this way.
While contemplating this, I was immediately reminded of the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine wore the Orioles hat in the owners box at Yankee Stadium and was then kicked out because she wouldn't take it off.
EDIT: Thanks for the input everyone. Go Blue!
