Going to the Game in Style: VIP with PBP

Last week, the interns got to go to an Eagles pre-season game in style. We were all invited to go watch the game in the PBP company box! I was really excited because I had never been to an Eagles game or in a box at any sporting event. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but all the people who I worked with in Audio Conferences said it was really cool and that we had great seats. A few days before the game, Nicole brought all of us an Eagles pack. We got a cute clear tote bag, instructions, and mostly importantly our tickets:

We were so excited to go. On Thursday (game day), we could hardly wait. I felt like time was passing so slowly, and I just wanted to be there already! At 4:30, we clocked out and met up at the cars to drive to the train station. Our hour commute ended right at the Linc! With our ticket lanyards around our necks, we searched for the VIP entrance and zipped right through security. The entrance opened up into a huge, open lobby with a concierge. We were directed the the elevators and taken up to our floor. As we walked down the hall to our box, we could hardly contain our excitement. When we got to suite 153, we burst through the door, and were amazed by the incredible view that greeted us:

Not only was the view amazing by the room was stocked! We had so much food and drink. Everything from hoagies to hot dogs to chicken fingers to fruit to chips. We grabbed plates and dug in. We talked and ate while we watched the players warm up, then it was game time. After the National Anthem, it was time for the Eagles grand entrance:

During the game more food came in and out and we talked among ourselves and with the other PBP employees who attended with us. It was great to meet some of the other employees and see them outside of the work setting.

In the end the Eagles ended up winning 14-9 against the Carolina Panthers. It was a great night and we all really enjoyed it! The only downside is that now I don’t think I’ll be able to go to a game in normal seats ever again!
