Take 12 Trips Challenge: November

November was the first full month since my commitment to the Take 12 Trips Challenge and of course it was a month of complete madness. I started a new job with a Chicago sports team and I’ve been balancing the unemployed-to-fulltime transition with a heavy addiction to college sports. My life has been consumed by sports, but I love it.

So, what was my #Take12Trips adventure this past month? I attended 4 football and 3 basketball games. That’s almost a full 24 HOURS of live sports action plus 24 HOURS of traveling to or from these games.  And I’ve watched so much sports television I balk at the idea of trying to count the hours spent on the couch. Or the number of beers consumed while watching sports. Let’s not go there.

I’m going to give myself a break this first month as a reward for earning a paycheck again and count all of this sports traveling as my November Trip. With a little help from Instagram, here are the highlights:

MSU vs Walmart Wolverines …eh erm…University of Michigan (WIN)
Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, MI


MSU vs Kentucky + Duke vs Kansas  Double Header (WIN over the no.1 team in the country)
United Center in Chicago, IL

It would appear that I am a lucky sports charm. It’s not superstition if it works. Right, Bud Light?

On to Indianapolis this weekend for the Big 10 Championship football game at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Let me hear it….GO GREEN!!!….

    1. Thank you! And yea, you’re not alone haha I didn’t really “travel” but I did have a lot of new experiences so I’m saying the first month of #Take12Trips was still a success :)
