Should I take my daughter to her first Buc's game with our team being so sucky?

  1. Take her and enjoy one or two quarters. the tickets were free who cares. (17 votes [62.96%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 62.96%

  2. stay home because it'll ruin football for her forever to see our team play like hot garbage. (10 votes [37.04%] - View)

So I was given two lower level seats for the Bucs. V. Panthers December 24th. My 6yr old is superstoked about going to her first Bucs game - even going so far as to memorize player's names and talk to me about it. It's really sweet. But I feel like I should save her from herself and not go b/c it is going to be a disaster. At the same time - it would be fun dad-daugheter bonding Any input?

Take her. She's too young to imprint as a Panthers fan which this upcoming game could establish if she were 9 or 10.

Instead she'll remember the everything else about going to your first NFL game.

As long as you can have a positive attitude no matter the out come, than I say take her. If shes stoked and really wants to go than go. Just don't show any negativity if the Bucs start losing.

Take her, she'll have a great time win or lose.

My first game was in 1995 against the Lions, we lost 37-10 but I still had a great time and have been rooting for the Bucs since.

Doesn't matter. If you're asking queries like this now, you have no capabilities to save them from the pole later.

Take her! She's a child. She will enjoy it no matter what. The game experience is great..my kids love going...trust me, she will love it. She will cheer, have a great time, everything..the joy she will have from being there will help take away the sting and disappointment if we get blown out again.

I took my daughters to a Buffalo game a few years back. Bucs sucked then too. We stayed the whole game but, for being 12 and 10, they were a little bored from the Bucs doing nothing. The Bills fans were actually really cool and other than a few smack comments here and there, they were friendly. My kids wanted some souvenirs to take home so I got them a Bucs hat, but they wanted something from the Bills too. Despite my no, no, no, I ended up getting them a #1 finger that said Bills. I thought it was cool to share hotdogs and sodas at a NFL game with my kids. Even if it was in Buffalo.

Honestly just take her. If the game starts getting out of hand just start exploring the stadium and the scenery, I've never been to Charlotte but I know here in Seattle one could walk around almost the entire game and not even watch football and still be entertained. Especially if the tickets were free.

Any time you spend with her she will treasure and hopefully in a few years you will both laugh at how bad the Bucs are now. She will have her very own war stories as a young Buc fan! Also, having her there will soften the blow for you if we get blown out. Have a great time. :thumb:

About to head out as well. If you're putting her in Buc gear, hopefully Panthers fans will be respectful. My experiences have been mostly negative with people here in Charlotte. Unless the Bucs win, in which case they never say a word. But, when the Panthers are winning, these people start acting like they're from Philly. This is by far the worst place I watch Bucs road games. (New Orleans and Chicago being the best)

Just explain that when the game's over, the big bad man wearing number one cannot hurt the Bucs anymore this year...

Take her for a walk around if the game suddenly fails to deliver...

...And buy her whatever she wants...

Mementos are a constant reminder of what Da's mean to their little girls at big events.

I remember my first Bucs game. I'm fairly certain that Barry Sanders set a rushing record against us, but I left a lifelong Bucs. And I got to be there knock the Lions out of the playoffs a couple of years later.

I've just reported Bucincharlotte to Child Protective Services for forcing his child into such a traumatically depressing expierence....

I refuse to stand idly by while an innocent child is subjected to the torment that is this footbal team.

Hey, bucin. Can we visit you in rehab?

Sorry you had to experience this in person. I hope you were able to make the best of it with your daughter anyway. Unlike you, she probably won't remember the details in another year or two.
