I know the schedule hasn't been released yet, so I don't expect anyone to know the date, but my wife and I were thinking of making the trip to Foxborough to see the Patriots vs. Steelers game next season (She's a Steelers fan. I know I know, it'll look odd with me in Patriots gear and her in Steelers gear walking hand-in-hand into the stadium lol). We'd be coming from western PA via car, so it's about an 8 hour drive and we'd make it into a long weekend. I've never been to an NFL game before (she's been to about 3 Steelers games at various venues) and I have a few questions for you guys. We're not looking to spend a ton, so when and where should we look at tickets? What's a fairly cheap place to sit at Gillette? Will she take a lot of abuse if she wears Steelers apparel? (I mean I rib her, and the light-hearted stuff is totally fine, but if it gets mean or cruel, it's not very funny/enjoyable) What are some cheaper (but still somewhat decent) hotels in the area? Any suggestions are helpful, thanks!
