For the past few weeks, Bill has spoken with various experts about the week’s NFL Playoff games. This week, he instead turned to Main Street, looking for fans who will be at Sunday’s NFC Championship game in San Francisco.
Bill first spoke with John Bartlett, a Giants fan, who made the trip last weekend to Green Bay with his two sons.
“My boys are big Giants fans and they wanted to go to the game,” Bartlett said. “The Packers fans were very polite. The whole trip was unbelievable.”
John will also be flying out to the Bay Area with his two sons for Sunday’s pairing with the 49ers. But it wasn’t always a sure thing.
“There was some doubt,” he said, “about the cost of the airline tickets and the price of the tickets out in San Francisco, but it seems to have all worked out.
Bartlett hopes that the journey won’t end out west. After spending last weekend in Green Bay, he hopes to return to the mid-west the first weekend in February for the Super Bowl in Indianapolis.
“My older son has it all figured out,” Bartlett said. “He’s saying if they win in San Francisco, there’s no doubt that we’ll be going to Indianapolis.”
Despite his assurances, Bartlett admits that he does not yet have tickets, although he does not think that will be a problem once they reach Indianapolis.
“They’ll be faith that we’ll find them when we get there,” he said.
