Can I be bought???

My boss has offered to buy me two tickets to "Phantom of the Opera" in New York City, including a room at the Four Seasons...LOL...I would be taking drchase with me of course :) I just find it so funny...why does she want to do this? In exchange for my play-off tickets of course...LOL...Oh man...

To be honest...I don't know what to do...on one hand the play-off tickets are pretty special and almost a once in a lifetime thing for the Gillette Stadium because games are sold out for the Patriots for the next 7 years...

On the other hand...this will give David and I an opportunity to have a really romantic time in New York on someone else's bill...UGH...decisions...choices...dammit...

i just dont think sports are cool; just my opinion. although it's probably more that i dont like sports people than the sports themselves... stereotypical jocks making asses of themselves and sweating testosterone all over the floor.. *shudder*

haha...you are so funny. I've never been to the play-offs. And it's kind of neat to go to something that is hard to get to, you know? I don't know...I need to talk it over with David :)

Check out the room rates at the New York Four Seasons, and it becomes a "no brainer"!

Methinks Lady Natalie is more of a fan of romanticism, than football!

so the question is "is she in it for her own enjoyment, or to Woo drchase?"

It would be both presumptuous and dangerous for me to probe the labyrinth of Lady Natalie's mind, however, venturing where angels fear to tread, I would reply to your comment: Wooing drchase IS her own enjoyment!

the phantom of opera would be my choice..

unless you really like sports like that...

I think the phantom of opera would be much more of a special memory for you and him.

If your boss is that desperate for play-off tickets, make the trade. Neither you, nor drchase are huge sports fans, so The Phantom of the Opera would be more enjoyable. Besides, do you want to fight traffic to spend an afternoon in a breezy stadium for an event in which you're not completely interested (and drag your boyfriend along for the ride). Wouldn't you rather spend the afternoon in New York, taking in the sights, then get dressed up, and spend the evening in a warm theater with the man you love?

Of course, play-off tickets are a valuable commodity. If you have one person offering to pay for this much for two tickets (not even on the 50-yard line), consider how much the price might jump if there's a little competition. While you can't sell the tickets, you might be able to trade for something valuable. Play your cards right and you could get dinner, the show, and the hotel room for those two slips of paper.

Since I'm reading this AFTER you went to the football game, Let me say I think you made the right choice.

When you think about it, how many people get to say they went to a playoff game at Gillette Stadium and saw the Patriots win? The current answer is approx. 67,000 (hopefully to be doubled on Sunday).

Anyone can go see Phantom. Don't get me wrong, I've seen Phantom on Broadway and loved it. It was the first Broadway show I've ever seen. But, you can always get tickets to Phantom at a later date, and go spend a nice weekend in NY with Dave. Although, I wouldn't let him stray too far away from you. I don't know what he would do if he got lost in NY.

In conclusion: I'm glad you went to the game, and when Dave gets beter, look for a deal on a weekend in NY and see Phantom.

I'm very excited! I can't wait until my honey and I go to NY for the Phantom! It will be so much fun! When he does get better and we save up some money that is definitely something we will be doing!
