First I'll let you know a little about me and why I am doing this. I'm an average Joe. Spent four years in the Marines and did two tours in Iraq. I have a good job. I'm engaged and we have 3 kids between us. I'm not poor and this is not a NEED at all. This is something I WANT. I fully understand the differences between wants and needs and if you want to donate to someone in need instead then I fully understand and there are thousands of charities you can donate to instead of me and I would have no problem with that.
I'm not just sitting back and doing nothing and asking for handouts. We have about $1300 in savings that I am putting forward. But I'm figuring it is going to be closer to 4[phone redacted] after it is all said and done for the tickets and travel and everything in between. Also my prize possession is my sneaker collection that I have been collecting over the last ten years and as much as it pains me I have already started to sell them off because this is a life long dream for me to go to the Super Bowl and I have been with the Hawks every step of the way this year and want to be there through the end.
When said I have been with the Seahawks all year I meant it. In the off season I attended the Richard Sherman Celebrity softball game with my cousin and a few of my friends. Then I went to the first day of training camp with some other family members and then I went to another training camp session with friends and family a few days later. Then the season came and it was my first time having season tickets and what a great season it was for it. My stepson is a dead ringer for a mini Russell Wilson and we dressed him like Russell for halloween. Also around October the Hawks already had a playoff spot basically on lock so I decided to do my part and started my playoff beard and haven't shaved since. This has not been real popular with my fiancÃ© but I keep it going for the Hawks and it's been working so far. Two playoff games, my beard and I have been in attendance for both, and two playoff wins. I have been here all season long screaming my heart out and I am going to this game one way or another I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Go Hawks!
