We do intend to attend games of all kinds for as long as we can (i.e. well into retirement.) Even though we presently live only 45 min away, even when we were 8 hours away we attended all home football games. I don't expect we would ever move more than 8 hrs away again.I'm late to the party, and a skunk at that. There is nothing worse than a late skunk at the garden party, unless it is an early skunk, I suppose.So I'm going to say something you probably don't want to hear. I feel entitled to say it, though, because I'm so much older than you. I've been your age. Bet you haven't been mine. ;-)My caution to you is this: the things you love now may not be the things you love 10 years from now. This may be a lesson you have to learn on your own. But I'm telling you anyway, just in case you are open to examining the possibility.I think it is entirely possible that the joy you are so clearly getting from alumni activities with your school could last your entire lifetime; I know a few people who are like that.Unfortunately, I know many, many, many more who were greatly in love with their alma mater the first few years out of school, but after a while, their interest waned.So my question is, if your love of these kinds of things gets replaced by something else, will you feel like kicking yourself for spending $50K on something that ends up being worthless in value to you?Just askin'.Experience is an excellent teacher, but he charges dreadful wages.-
