I was looking at the typical upgrade cycle today and seeing what was out there and noticed that my account had hit 75 years of continuous gopher football season tickets:

I was told that it would have been longer had not not been for the war... the second one.
Using the old World War excuse again. Lame!

Impressive! If you don't mind sharing, I'd be interested in the lineage of the account. Was it originally your parent or grandparent's account?

Did they make you start your Gopher Score over after the war?

Officially they originated with my Grandfather. (Great grandfather actually played but I don’t know anything about his tickets).

In reality I’m an immortal and I have to make up these stories as I go along to fit in to mortal society.

Thank god they changed the rules on passing down to family members in 2008. Before that, you couldn’t, and you had to “fake it”.
