Ok, this is for anyone like me who believes half the fun is in getting there, and also doesn't have the money to shell out for a plane ticket. I have done some research and a lot of painful math and figured that if 4 people were to rent a car and drive 10 hours each there and 10 hours each back, we could leave on Friday around noon, be there in time for the game and be back here in DC by late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning all for just under 200 buck a person. This price includes the car, gas, tickets to the game, food and drinks for the drive and drinks prior to the game for those so inclined. Now, this trip will not be for the faint of heart. In order to keep the car rental price down and the gas mileage up the car would be an Oldmobile Alero, not a small car, but not exactly a big one either. It will mean 40 hours of driving, only stopping for gas and "nature breaks" and not really spending a whole lot of time in LA. In order to keep food prices down, it will mean eating sandwiches we make and pack in a cooler. I think I've prettymuch talked one friend into doing this which means we need two more people who are as crazy as we are. If anyone is interested, let me know. As soon as (or if I) I have 4 people I am going to set the rusty gears into motion! Don't think of this as a horrible time stuck cramped into a small car with 3 other people for a total of about 80 hours in 5 days or so, think of it as an epic journy, a quest, a pilgramage, if you will, to go see United win back the cup!
