Football Games

Just about everyone I know collects something. I collect games.

I’ve kept the vast majority of my ticket stubs and press passes since I started going to ballgames as a kid. I’m missing a few from my younger days, but the list below represents the games I’ve been to over the years. I’ll update this list as I continue this blog so you can follow along  as well. I’ve included the date when I have it. This particular list includes all of the Pro and College football games I’ve gone to.
