If you’re bothered by the season ticket increase, maybe you should find peace in knowing that concession prices will be capped at $5 on many of the most popular food items sold around the stadium. Popcorn, nachos, pretzels, bottled soda, and fountain drinks will all be sold for a crisp Lincoln at Everbank Field. Still bothered by the prices of a hot dog? You are allowed to bring your own unwrapped food into the stadium in a gallon-sized plastic bag.
Friends, there is nothing negative about the removal of the tarps. We’ve suffered through years of football purgatory and a few in football hell, but I think our sins have been forgiven. Don’t look back on the awkward phase that followed our team’s infancy.
We had the cutest pictures of our Jaguars as infants and then they grew into pimple-faced, bucked-tooth teens, but guess what, the braces are coming off and their skin cleared up. We’ll be primed and ready to embark upon the best years of our lives and it all starts with the tarps coming off.
If you’re just “that guy” and need something to complain about, after all of this, complain about beer prices not also getting capped. The Falcons found a way at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Use that to keep you salty until 2019.
I’m happy to be looking at the NFL’s new and improved Jan Brady, not the one that was always so jealous of her foxy sister, Marcia.
