Season Tickets Update for 2009

Each year at about this time, I get a postcard from the Green Bay Packers letting me know where I sit on the waiting list for season tickets. I've been on the list for a few years now and here's the progress I've made:

2007: 69,193
2008: 68,158 [moved up 1,035 places]
2009: 67,338 [moved up 820 places]

I'm sitting at 67,338 on the list and this year I only moved up 820 places. I thought for sure that there would be a big jump this year with the poor year the Packers had last season and the current economic situation. Instead, the rate fell and it looks less and less likely that I will live to see a chance at tickets. At the rate of 820 spots a year, it would take 82 years to get tickets, putting me at a spry 112....I'll still probably hate Brett Favre.

Wow, I didn't know they even had that many people who wanted to see them. :-) That is so weird that they spend all that money to send out notices...

You know, I had heard the list was long but I didn't believe it. Good luck man. I really wish that I could go to a game at Lambeau sometime. Maybe you can hope for a stadium renovation where they add a bunch of new seats. That's how I was able to get OU season tickets.
