Rookie: I want you to take me to a Packers game this year.
Me: There is no way I’m getting near Packers tickets after they went to the Super Bowl. Besides, there might not be any football next year.
Rookie (looking very perplexed): Why?
Me: There’s a strike and a lock out, so as it stands right now, there won’t be any football.
Me: They can’t decide how much to pay the players.
Rookie (eyes the size of saucers): They get PAID?!?!?!?!?! I wanna do that!
