At the start of the season, one of the guys in my season ticket group missed the home opener because he scheduled a lame camping trip with his girlfriend. He claimed the trip was planned and he didn't think to look at the football schedule when they were making restervations. I excused this as plausible and let it go. However, I made sure to give him a handy wallet schedule, so things like this would not happen again.
A few weeks later, as tailgate planning was underway, this same guy tells me that the coming weekend was the annual BWCA trip with a bunch of guys (who he doesn't like) from work. Thankfully, the whole block of tickets is in my name, so I have suspended him from attending the next game as punnishment for his inability to plan.
He has a 2008 and a 2009 schedule in his wallet, so future mistakes will not be tolorated. I have made this clear.
Last night, over drinks, he and his new fiancee announce that they've decided to get married in Duluth next year. I inquired, "what date?" He answered, "October 3rd." I ask did you check the football schedule (knowing full well that October 3rd is the day of the Big Ten home opener in the new stadium vs. Wisconsin). He says, "no." I simply said, "I won't be there". He got upset and said that it's rediculous for me to say so matter-of-factly that I won't be a part of his wedding.
If he follows through with the wedding, is it right for me to kick him out my season ticket group? That's what I intend to do.
