Venus Trapped in Mars

Hey, Someone Pinch Me!

The Webb/Batman household had a great weekend folks, a very great weekend. Periodically, I feel I should probably clarify why I call my boyfriend CB for anyone who is new to VTIM. In a nutshell: I call my boyfriend CB -- short for Chalupa Batman, a name from the show the league -- because he doesn't want his name/picture on the blog. Thus, Chalupa Batman was created. 

Like I was saying, the Webb/Batman household likes all of the same teams, with the single exception of college football. There's no rivalry, or house divided. Our teams have very little competition, other than the argument over who is the real UT. With that said, I'll cheer for his team and he'll cheer for mine. If we're being honest here though, I think CB is starting to become a bigger Tennessee fan... just saying, if we're being honest. 

So Saturday, both of our teams had huge upsets over their rivals, with Texas beating Oklahoma and Tennessee beating Georgia. It's been a long time since we've both had reasons to be that happy on a Saturday in the fall. A very long time. I actually wouldn't allow myself to cheer at the end. I was still worried, even while the Vols were celebrating on the field, that something could still go wrong. Tis the life of a Tennessee fan. 

Then Sunday of course was COWBOYS day. They came over at 11:30 to film a few things that didn't come out properly last week, and take some shots of me getting ready at our house. 













Around 2, we headed to the game. The game was packed. By packed, I unfortunately am not talking about Dallas fans filling the seats. Since AT&T is such an incredible stadium, opposing team's fans pick Dallas as the game they travel to. There were an enormous amount of Patriots fans at the game, making it a bit difficult to get shots surrounded with fellow Dallas fans. That was the first hurdle for filming yesterday, the second hurdle was the fact that the Cowboys had a very difficult time generating any offense. To get the shots needed for the video, let's just say I had to get really really really excited about the little things, like when we managed to move the ball seven yards. 
















Our tickets were standing room only, but we also had access to the Draft Kings Fantasy Lounge. We didn't exactly know what or where the Draft Kings Lounge was, nor did anyone who worked at AT&T stadium. We asked several people how to get there, but since it was new for the 2015 season, no one knew where it was located. When we finally found it, the smile that plastered across my face was gigantic. 

The Draft Kings Lounge was field level, behind the Patriots bench. It was amazing. It wasn't very crowded at all, and you even had access to your own bar. Your wait time for an ice cold beer was only a few minutes. I'm spoiled now, I don't know how I'll ever go back to those 400 level seats my wallet forces me to buy!

Most of our filming was finished after halftime, so a couple of guys who were headed out left CB and me their press pass. The crew that was left was then able to get video during the second half, and post game.

As it turned out, the press pass allowed us to visit the lounge located on the Cowboys side too. One of the guys from the film crew got some shots by the Cowboys' bench. It was just too amazing.











As you can see, my all-time favorite, Jason Witten, posed for a picture just for me............ 

After the game, we got to go on the field!!! This was the first time I'd ever been on the field (obviously) and it was the coolest. As CB so eloquently put it, "I just can't help but acting like a fan boy right now!

My thoughts exactly, I couldn't stop from acting like a fan girl. 








Looking back on this, I was such a nerd. SUCH AN EXCITED NERD. 

I sat on the Cowboys' bench and pretended it was where Jason Witten had sat earlier that day. I'm pretty sure Jason didn't sit down during the game, but we'll just pretend that our butts touched the same bench, ok? 








CB took this really TERRIFYING fantastic picture of me just sitting on the bench. 

I'm a Nerd. Such a nerd. 

I hope everyone has a good chuckle over that face I'm making. 




I practiced getting both feet in, ya know, in case they need me in Dez's absence.  






It was the coolest day ever. If I've said it once, I've said it a million times, I encourage EVERYONE to start a blog. The way it takes you out of your comfort zone, the new experiences it introduces you to, the opportunities that present themselves.... it's absolutely unreal.

  3. While I am happy that my Patrtiots beat Dallas, I'm also happy you got to experience such a cool view of the game. I've had a few cool concert experiences like this and its hard to go back to being used to the poor man's view.

  4. That's so awesome! Maybe I can catch the eye of the Patriots crew and get down on the field lol. Actually Pats players are always out and about in town so I've seen a few. Remember when Tebow was here for like a second? Yup totally saw him at the movie theater once lol

  5. Oh my gosh! So fun! And girl, I feel you on the Vols winning. I skipped the 4th quarter and most of the 3rd to go to a movie because - Tennessee - and when I checked the score I was like "no. That's not right. It can't be right." It was a solid solid day.

  12. I have a nerdy story too. Several years ago I got tickets to DCI Nationals. (Its Marching Band on steroids) They have Nationals at Lucas Oil Stadium. One of the benefits of dating a band director was my ticket allowed me to walk through the tunnel they Colts walked through and be on the field before the competition. I was literally touching the wall as I walked out the tunnel and onto the field. Just in case Peyton had touched the walls.
