Most locals around Jacksonville, FL have seen the commercial where the kid on Christmas opens a present, doesn’t really know what it is until he looks closer and see’s the words “Gator Bowl” written on a ticket and immediately jumps for joy that he will be able to attend the New Years Day tradition.
That certainly was a great memory for him and with the help of catering and unique downtown special events venue 927 Events, they want to make this Gator Bowl a special memory for two lucky people by giving away two free tickets and gameday shuttle passes to the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl matchup between Northwestern and Mississippi State, just for the readers of GuysGirl!
So what’s the catch?
Simply comment below on your favorite football memory and the person with the best story wins. Easy as pie. And after a winner is chosen, you pick up the tickets from 927 Events on 12/30 and you my friend, are set.
Now you’re probably thinking, what kind of football memory can I list? And the answer is frankly any memory that has had some significance to you. It can be college or pro, if you were a player or cheerleader, young or old…you get the drift.
For me, my favorite football memory is the when the division leading Indianapolis Colts came to town to face off against the Jaguars. It was a nail biter of a game that came down to one last play. And that’s when Scobee Bryant, aka Jags clutch kicker Josh Scobee stepped onto the field to attempt a kick that most others miss at 51 yards. My seats line up right where the goal post is at, so as soon as I saw the ball float in between the field goal post, our side of the stadium literally jumped for joy a second before the rest of the stadium knew. It felt like we had just won the Superbowl. That game is also the reason that no matter what the record is, there is nothing that compares to seeing a football game live and why I haven’t missed a game in years.
Football creates memories for all of us, so whether you are a Northwestern, Mississippi State or just a football fan in general, comment below of your favorite football memory and you could win!
