The wife gave me an interesting choice this evening. We had been planning to take an extended weekend vacation in Las Vegas later this year, but she told me tonight that if I wanted, I could get Chiefs season tickets. This, however, who null and void the Vegas trip. I have never experienced Las Vegas, and was looking forward to going, but the draw of season tix is strong. To make it more interesting, she says she has people she works with in her office who sell their season's worth of tickets every year (just the tix, not the rights), and we could possibly go that route to see if we like going every Sunday before we commit to having our own tickets.

Very tough to decide. I would like to know what YOU guys would do in this situation, and why. Vegas, Chiefs. Vegas, Chiefs. Help a guy out!

You should pummel your genitalia for even asking.

I'd take Chiefs season tix. More fun IMO.

Dude, Vegas can be cheap as hell for just a couple days. 16 tickets is a hell of a lot more money.

The wife and I did 5 nights in Vegas our first time for $500 all expenses.

(Then again, I spend almost 2 weeks in Vegas every year for work, so it holds little mystery any more.)

I didn't realize you could buy season tickets. I always hear about a waiting list for a like a kazillion years. Take your wife to Vegas and let me buy the season tickets. :)

Vegas could wind up costing you more if your a gambler....at least with season tix you could take something away ...autographs, photographs, some of phil's spiked hot chocolate....

Let me get this straight. You were planning an extended weekend getaway with the wife to Vegas.

You want to go.

She wants to go.

BOTH of you WANT to go to Vegas.

Let me put it to you this way. If you take the season tickets over the trip, any sex you're getting now will evaporate and she'll beat you over the head with that decision for ... oh I dunno ... the rest of your life.

Hope that helps.

Chiefs tix will last a lot longer. Vegas ain't that great at least for me.

I go to Vegas 5 times a year at least.
And I would rather drive 25 hours to Arrowhead a few weekends a year.

This is real easy IMO get the tickets. Then, once the newness of the transaction wears off, go to vegas on a long four day weekend when the Chiefs are on the road. :thumb:

See if you can swing both. If you go Vegas during the week you can get a room for as cheap as $20 a day. If you go to Bally's and have a reservation and ask for a suite if they have one you get it for your reservation price or just a little higher i can't remember exactly. You'll get all you want then!

Well, you're right but that doesn't make Raider fans any less stupid. Nice try.

If you were single and loaded I might consider telling you to go to Vegas but then again since you had so much money you could go to the games anyway. I gotta tell you, I may consider buying season tickets myself some day and coming from out here in California for half the games and selling the rest. If I do though I would want the rights too, don't forget the playoffs.

Cannibal

You're kind of in a Catch 22. On one hand, if you take the season tickets, the Chiefs might be suck arse, or be mediocre, or they might be just good enough to get your hopes up, only to see them choke. But who knows maybe this is their year. Plus, a trip to Vegas would be sweet. But I agree with the others, you should try to do them both. Purchase the tickets and then try to swing the trip to Vegas.

Take the tickets and get a room at the Ameristar on Saturday Nights and then get up go to the game and buy us all beers with the money you won.

Thanks for the input, everyone. In hindsight, it is a silly question. Vegas can wait, although Cannibal makes it interesting with his suggestion. Guess I'll start looking into getting some tix.

It's unethical for your wife's coworkers to hog season tickets and then sell them (unless of course they're selling them at face value).

If you're getting the tickets at face value, go to the Chiefs game. Otherwise, make an ethical stand and go see some topless revues in Las Vegas.

You're taking your wife so no Vegas hookers. Get the tickets.

Take the tickets. If you feel like gambling, go to the damned river boat.

Oh yes, the tix are at face. There is no gouging going on, at least that's the impression she's under.

And I have not given up on getting my wife a lap dance while in Vegas...........

Down at Rolla them gals are Gamma Beta Sigma.

Actually, f*ck, when I was in town this year I was told they finally got a national. I don't have any idea what their name is anymore. Hell, they might not even be fat anymore.

An extended weekend in Vegas versus at least 8 Sundays in arrowhead seems like a pretty easy choice to me. Definitely tics. Although I think Cannibal had a good idea.
