The Super Bowl adventure begins

IMAG0264

It begins.

Mrs. PFT and yours truly are rolling to Dallas, in a bus.  Not the ’68 VW bus.  And not with a ticket on Greyhound.

It’s a full-sized, 10-wheel, two-bathroom, full-kitchen bus with desks and TVs and a refrigerator and no booze that I have managed to find.

Yet.

We’re making a mostly-non-stop trip to Dallas.  And I’ll be posting stories the whole way.

Things will get very interesting if/when I find the booze.

    You drink, she drives?

    If you let us know where you may be stopping, PFT fans can arrange for “supplies” for your bus.

    Wow. Nice upgrade. I guess that’s what happens when you sell your soul to NBC. Nevermind, you sold it when you got your law degree.

    If it’s a charter, you better have brought your own booze.

    “You drink, she drives?”

    No, they drink and someone else drives! I don’t think you take a custom bus non-stop and drive yourself! Ruins the point.

    “How many more miles?”

  7. dempsey63 says: Jan 29, 2011 5:15 PM

    “Omigosh…did I turn the stove off?”

    I suppose this means you are not the driver

    Why don’t you help the economy get out of Thomas Crappers invention and make some Liquor store owner a happy man.

    Pick me up and take me with you!

    Does Madden know you borrowed the Cruiser?
    Or is he driving while you drink?

    Need to take a taxi to the airport and get your scared little ass on an airplane and fly to Dallas.

    Come on Mike, admit it ….. you miss the Vee Dub.

    What? You’ve sold out for the luxury of the “Big Time”?????

  14. wydok says: Jan 29, 2011 6:09 PM

    So, are you afraid to fly, Mike? Or just don’t like getting groped by TSA?

  15. hobartbaker says: Jan 29, 2011 6:20 PM

    Most people have to wait until they’re 65 to load the missus in an RV and head south.

  16. alewatcher says: Jan 29, 2011 6:59 PM

    First stop: Liquor store.

  17. benh999 says: Jan 29, 2011 7:52 PM

    @wydok,
    He stopped flying because the TSA agents refuse to grope him.

  18. Deb says: Jan 29, 2011 8:43 PM

    Have a safe trip to Jerry’s World, Mike. Hope they’ll let you watch the game inside the stadium … but could you get a photo of the folks who paid $200 to sit outside and watch on a jumbotron? That falls into the “must be seen to be believed” category.

  19. nitemare1 says: Jan 29, 2011 9:52 PM

    @benh999

    you however love to fly, word is you like those enhanced pat downs by the big TSA men

  20. dempsey63 says: Jan 29, 2011 10:57 PM

    When the water in the toilet flushes in the other direction, that means you overshot Big D by a couple of miles.

  21. benh999 says: Jan 30, 2011 12:33 AM

    @nitemare1,
    Jealous you can’t get those when you take Greyhound?

  22. hobartbaker says: Jan 30, 2011 2:00 AM

    Now that you’re finally delivering on the honeymoon you promised, how about putting a little aside each month for a genuine gold ring.

  23. hobartbaker says: Jan 30, 2011 2:10 AM

    Thing sounds huge. You could probably pick up the Steelers on the way through Pittsburgh and give them a lift.

    Right off the top it has 8 more wheels than I do, one more bathroom, and one half more kitchen. Not to mention the desk, computer, and T.V.

  24. screamingsheep69 says: Jan 30, 2011 7:28 AM

    If the bus is a rockin, don’t come a knockin.
    Poor Jill.

    Be careful, Mike. That Night Train’s a mean wine!
