After having a monster 2010 season of seeing 36 total football games (27 NFL and 9 College), I managed to surpass that in total in 2011. After all, living in the Northeast has its privileges.
In 2010, I saw more quality if you will and almost as much quantity.
I went to more venues and other parts of the country in 2010 which in some ways is much more impressive in my eyes.
In 2011, once the NFL lockout was officially over, I was able to follow through on my game plan. I knew I could see as many as 25 regular season NFL games. I usually shoot for 20 depending on how the schedule works out.
Thanks to many of the Northeast teams getting prime time exposure, I was able to take full advantage of the opportunity. I saw four NFL doubleheaders and I went to ten prime time games five on Sunday, four on Monday and one Thursday night during my recording shattering season.
In addition, I got to see four playoff games as well. One Wild Card, two Divisional Playoffs and the AFC Championship Game.
By doing so, I was able to keep my playoff streak of attending at least one every year since 1997 alive. I now have seen 38 total.
14 WC/15 DP/7 Championship Games/1 Super Bowl (Giants/Ravens) and 1 Pro Bowl.
Furthermore, I tied my 2010 record total of nine college football games too.
Here's the breakdown by home team and/or school:
5 Giants (Wild Card Game)
4 Ravens (Divisional Playoff)
3 Patriots (Divisional Playoff and AFC Championship Game)
Based on the NFL opponents for 2012, it looks like a tall order for me to break it again. I'll wait and see what happens.
When it comes to football, I'm the King.
Thank you for reading and following along.
